Despite his recent criticism of Donald Trump, Jimmy Kimmel said he would love to have the president on his late-night show.
“I have a lot of questions for Donald Trump,” Kimmel told ABC News’ Amy Robach for “Good Morning America” on Friday. “Maybe this is crazy, but I feel like I could turn him around on a couple of things.”
Kimmel, however, warned Robach not to expect any miracles.
“He’s not planning to visit me anytime soon. He and Sean Hannity have date night on those nights,” he said before calling the president’s son Donald Trump Jr. an “idiot.”
Trump is not among the New York-based guests booked for Kimmel’s upcoming week of broadcasts from Brooklyn, his childhood hometown.
The week will include appearances and interviews with an impressive lineup of New Yorkers made good including, Bill Joel, Tracy Morgan, David Letterman, Amy Schumer and Howard Stern.
Kimmel’s emotional monologues on health care and gun violence have raised his public profile considerably in recent months. His often tear-laden rants regularly go viral on social media and has made him an increasingly polarizing cultural icon.
