Jimmy Kimmel gives federal employees work during Trump's shutdown

It's Day 17 of the U.S. government shutdown, with Donald Trump refusing to budge on his demand of $5.7 billion to build his border wall, and about to make a prime-time address on the subject on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, nearly 800,000 federal employees are currently working without pay, something Jimmy Kimmel pointed out in his return to late night on Tuesday.

"That is Donald Trump doing what Donald Trump does best: not paying the people who work for him. That is where he shines," Kimmel said. 

So, the late show host wants to do something about it. Kimmel said he'll invite a federal employee to work at Jimmy Kimmel Live! every night until Trump's shutdown ends. 

What'll they be doing? Well, John Kostelnik, a prison guard at the Federal Correctional Complex in Victorville, CA, wielded a tambourine in the show's band. 

"That's called solving problems, folks," Kimmel joked.
