It didn't take long for Twitter users to start trolling the comedian.

"Jimmy Kimmel calls Australia dumb,when America are on the cusp of Trump leading their country..Good one mate," wrote one user.

Another wrote: "Hey @jimmykimmel while the #WarOnTerriers might have been blown out of proportion, Australia's biosecurity laws are in no way dumb."

A different user also brought up this valid point: "Last night you said Australia is a dumb country. Barnaby Joyce is not representative of us - just like (Donald) Trump isn't for all U.S"

But perhaps, this user had the best burn of all.

"Hey @jimmykimmel Australia, unlike your own country is rabies free. We like to keep it that way," they tweeted.

Game, set, match.
