Jimmy Kimmel calls Trump a ‘basketball dipped in cologne’ after GOP frontrunner cancels appearance

Jimmy Kimmel brutally mocked Donald Trump after the Republican presidential candidate abruptly canceled an appearance on his ABC talk show.

Representatives for Trump called off a brief scheduled appearance just hours before “Jimmel Kimmel Live” was set to tape, and the host complained the following morning on Howard Stern’s satellite radio program, reported Variety.

“I don’t know what happened,” Kimmel said. “We’re delighted, needless to say.”

A campaign spokeswoman told Variety that Trump pulled out of the planned appearance due to a conflicting political obligation, but the candidate would reschedule once Kimmel’s show returned to Los Angeles after taping this week in Brooklyn.

Kimmel joked about the cancellation during his opening monologue Tuesday night, and the crowd booed enthusiastically at the news.

“His people called and cancelled on us,” Kimmel said. “They were a little bit cryptic as to why he cancelled. They said he has a major political commitment — but he did want me to relay the message to you that if he was here, he would have been great.”

Kimmel continued needling the real estate mogul and reality TV star.

“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?”

He finished by slamming Trump’s distinctive physical presence.

“Don’t worry, we’re giving everyone in our audience a basketball dipped in cologne so you can fully experience what it would have been like if he was here,” Kimmel said.

The Center for Public Integrity sought the information in Freedom of Information Act requests filed in late September.

The administration of President Donald Trump has had multiple scandals for using federal government resources to aid his 2020 re-election campaign, but senior White House advisor Jared Kushner is his de facto campaign manager, The New York Times reported Thursday.

"Hours before the House Judiciary Committee was set to take a historic vote to push President Trump to the brink of impeachment, campaign officials gathered across the Potomac River for a state-of-the-race briefing in which they described how the Republican Party had been transformed into the “beer and bluejeans party” crafted in Mr. Trump’s image," the newspaper reported, despite the fact Trump claims he does not drink beer and is not known for wearing anything other than suits and golf attire.
