TV News hosts and anchors may be at a loss as to how to handle Donald Trump. But late night TV hosts know exactly what to do, particularly when the former reality TV star cancels on them the night before hes supposed to appear as a guest during their shows important week-long road trip.
"Donald Trump was supposed to be here tonight," Jimmy Kimmel said at the top of his ABC late night show. "And now hes glad he didn't come, I guess," Kimmel smiled, as his audience booed Trump in absentia.
"His people called last night and canceled on us. They were cryptic. They said he has a major political commitment, but he did want me to relay the message to you that had he been here, he would have been great.
"I'm dying to find out what this major political commitment was. Usually it means he had to go on CNN and call someone an idiot or something.
"Why did he cancel?" Kimmel asked his EP, who was just off stage. "We told them there were cameras here, right? Are Tuesday nights the night he volunteers down at the orphanage?”
