Jimmy Kimmel Rips on Trump For Canceling
At least the host offered a fair substitute?
Joining the likes of John McCain and Sarah Palin, Donald Trump can now be counted among the not-so-proud few who've suddenly canceled on a late-night talk show. Mere hours before Trump was supposed to film Jimmy Kimmel Live!, he taped an interview with Sean Hannity and explained that he would miss his appearance later that night.
“No, I have a political event, but I am going to do his show in two weeks,” the always candid GOP frontrunner stated.
Not one to take this rejection lying down, Kimmel ripped on Trump in his opening monologue.
“I’m dying to find out what this major political commitment was,” he said. “Usually, it means he had to go on CNN to call someone an idiot or something. Why did he cancel? We told him there were cameras here, right? Are Tuesday nights the night he volunteers down at the orphanage?”
As a consolation to his audience, Kimmel offered up a nearly perfect Trump effigy: a basketball drenched in cologne.
