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

Published

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.

WATCH: Trump advisor trashes Dr. Fauci — while pushing coronavirus conspiracy theories

Published

on

White House economic advisor Peter Navarro pushed several conspiracy theories about the COVID-19 pandemic as the administration attempts to deflect blame for America responding to coronavirus worse than any other developed country.

At one point in the interview, MSNBC's Ali Velshi had to ask, "What are you talking about?"

Navarro harshly criticized Dr. Tony Fauci, who is one of his colleagues in the administration.

And he tried to blame the "Chinese Communist Party" for the disease, saying "they spawned the virus, they hid virus, they sent hundreds of thousands of Chinese nationalists over here to seed and spread the virus before we knew."

Ron DeSantis threw temper tantrum after Trump hired strategist he ‘exiled’ from Florida GOP: report

Published

on

On Friday, Politico reported that President Donald Trump has brought back longtime Florida Republican strategist Susie Wiles to try to save his electoral chances in the critical swing state — and that Gov. Ron DeSantis, who worked to cast her out of power in the Florida GOP, is enraged by the move.

"Trump’s decision to reinstate Susie Wiles to his campaign’s good inner circle follows months of behind-the-scenes efforts to bring her back after she was exiled at the demand of Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who had her cast out of the president’s good graces in September," reported Gary Fineout and Marc Caputo, and it "comes as polls show Trump trailing Democrat Joe Biden in Trump's adopted home state. Trump won Florida four years ago by less than 113,000 votes and a loss in the battleground would likely doom his reelection effort."
