Skip to comments.Obama Reportedly Cancels ‘Surprise’ Jimmy Kimmel Appearance This Week
Posted on 07/21/2014 5:09:56 PM PDT by Nachum
President Barack Obama has talked politics with David Letterman and slow jammed the news with Jimmy Fallon, but he has yet to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live. TMZ claimed that was about to change this week when they reported that Obama would appear on Jimmy Kimmels show this Wednesday during an already-scheduled trip to Los Angeles.
The site quoted ABC network sources who said Obama would travel to the El Capitan theatre on Hollywood Boulevard to tape a segment with Kimmel that would be at least partly serious. Sources at the LAPD reportedly confirmed the news to TMZ, saying the president would be at the studio for one hour starting at 3 p.m. The president is scheduled to be in Los Angeles this week, attending a fundraiser at the home of Scandal creator Shonda Rhimes on Wednesday night.
But ABC is officially denying the report, calling the news inaccurate and saying Obama is not booked on the show. The Kimmel show issued a similar denial, telling TMZ Obama will not be appearing on the show Wednesday.

He must have had a more important fundraiser come up.
Help me Shonda, help help me shonda, get him out of my
Actually as I understand it, he is going to two fundraisers.
I guess he is afraid of the hard hitting question he might be asked.
I’ll bet that Kimmel wouldn’t agree to pre-screened questions. The coward doesn’t want to expose himself as the fool and creep that he is.
He is not showing up because the Obama regime cancelled it. They are catching hell for all the Obama extra curricular activity while all hell is breaking loose around the world.
Ill bet that Kimmel wouldnt agree to pre-screened questions
Maybe, but IMO all these Late Night Clowns are ratings whores. They would bow at the knees of the great and powerful Odunga to get him to show up.
My guess is one of Odungas Puppet Masters actually realized that with the world imploding (Odunga largely responsible) it might not look good.
Maybe. But there are guys I know on that show who pretty much hate that stupid f**k.
Valerie told him no. Period. Full stop. End of story.
In May 2007, Rhimes was named one of TIME magazine's 100 people who help shape the world.
As the world burns...
Of course he cancelled. Have you ever known him to keep a promise or commitment?
I bet Obama is disappointed because he can’t toast himself like Kayne West.

“Maybe It’s Just Me They Don’t Like’
There was no reason for that.
Kimmel needs to put in a putting green.
No reason for what? That is who is having a fundraiser for Obama.
