Obama Reportedly Cancels ‘Surprise’ Jimmy Kimmel Appearance This Week
mediaite ^ | 7/21/14 | Matt Wilstein

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 Kimmel’s 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.

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.

“I’ll bet that Kimmel wouldn’t 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 Odunga’s Puppet Masters actually realized that with the world imploding (Odunga largely responsible) it might not look good.

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.

No reason for what? That is who is having a fundraiser for Obama.

"In the April 2007 issue of Stuffmagazine.com, Kimmel was named the "biggest badass on TV". "

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.

My guess, also. Fair chance that Kimmel would do something that would make Obama look very, very bad.

And there’s the chance Kimmel would ask him about the downed airliner or Gaza war.

And they have no say in the gotcha questions that in theory could be asked, and value their well paying jobs. So it doesn’t amount to a hill of beans.

Barry needs to cancel all TV and go the F home already.

He has left enough problems for the grown-ups to fix.

Barry, with all the respect afforded to the White House......

YOU SUCK ASS.

Maybe she should work on her own shape first?

Did you see her commencement “speech” at some university this spring? Saw a story about it...she was vulgar and foul...talked about losing control of her bowels, etc...just very, very, very juvenile. Lame.
