Donald Trump tells Jimmy Kimmel: ‘I’ve been a little bit divisive’.

During Trump’s appearance Wednesday on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Kimmel had a copy of The Daily News’s December 16 cover that blares the headline, “Brady Has No Balls!” The story pertains to Brady saying earlier this week on WEEI’s “Dennis and Callahan Show” that “Donald is a good friend” of his and Brady “supports” all of his friends. Los Angeles: One day after a debate clash with Jeb Bush, Donald Trump said he’s been “a little bit divisive” and wants to see Republicans come together.“Jimmy Kimmel Live” is one of the least political late-shows on television each night, and that includes re-runs of “Gilligan’s Island.” But last night Kimmel really let Donald Trump have it during their interview.

On Wednesday’s Kimmel Live, Jimmy Kimmel asked Donald Trump if any of his advisers had tried to talk him out of his proposal to ban all Muslims from entering the United States. In an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night show on Wednesday, the GOP presidential candidate looked relaxed as Kimmel queried him about campaign issues. He started the show prepping the audience for how this was going to go by saying “we know Donald Trump as a businessman, author, and reality show star, but our children will know him as the president who blew up the moon for being a loser.” It was all down hill from there.

Trump didn’t really answer, just said that the key word is “temporarily” and that many — not all — of his many Muslim friends “called me and they said ‘You know, Donald, you’re right, we have a problem.'” Kimmel asked: “But isn’t it un-American and wrong to discriminate against people based on their religion?” His audience like that question, but Trump just said that “we have people coming into this country that are looking to do us tremendous harm.” Trump noted the attacks in Paris and San Bernardino, and repeated that many Muslims have called him to voice their support for his proposed ban. “Those may have been crank calls,” Kimmel joked, before asking Trump about the argument that indiscriminately banning Muslims just increases ISIS recruitment. “I don’t buy it,” Trump said. “We need strength in this country — we don’t have strength.” The last part is Trump trumpeting his opposition to the 1993 invasion of Iraq, and you can watch that and his defense of his controversial proposal below. The ABC host then turned to immigration, using the example of his on-air sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez, to question Trump’s call for mass deportation. Trump came out thanking Kimmel for always giving him a fair shake, probably since Kimmel generally sits in the middle of the political road with the dead armadillos. This was probably in part because Kimmel’s partner in crime on the show is Guillermo Rodriguez, who came to the U.S. illegally, but he kept his mouth shut during the interview. Kimmel said it appeared Trump had made an effort to be nicer to his fellow candidates in the debate, including lauding Senator Ted Cruz’s temperament after previously calling him a something of a “maniac.” “I would like to see the Republican party come together, and I’ve been a little bit divisive in the sense of hitting people hard,” Trump replied.

Bush, well behind front-runner Trump in national polls, said during the debate that the billionaire couldn’t insult his way to the presidency and called him a “chaos candidate.” Trump also admitted that his doctor basically wrote what Trump told him to write in his recently released medical info. “In all fairness, I said, ‘Doc, I want to tell you, I’ll be the healthiest president ever.’” The candidate suggested his doctor took those words and obligingly put them in his report.
