Did Donald Trump just call for Republican unity on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’?.

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.

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. A case in point was a recently released medical report, in which Trump’s doctor wrote that Trump “would be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency.” Trump replied, “I said, doc, I want to tell you, I will be the healthiest president ever. Seuss, which he said he’d ghost-written for Trump.

Over the past few months, Donald Trump has gotten away without a scratch on Saturday Night Live, lightly parodied himself with Jimmy Fallon, and sat down for a surprisingly soft interview with Stephen Colbert. Lindsey Graham get off the “children’s stage” and drop out of the race. “He’s having a hard time because … everyone thought he was the odds-on favorite,” Trump said of the former Florida governor, who took a more aggressive stance toward him Tuesday. “I said he’s a low-energy individual. Tonight, he may have finally met his match in Jimmy Kimmel. “We know Donald Trump as a businessman, author, and reality show star,” Kimmel said in his opening monologue as way of introduction for someone who at this point needs none. “But our children will know him as the president who blew up the moon for being a loser.” Trump, who abruptly canceled a New York appearance with Kimmel two months ago, immediately thanked the host for sticking up for him in the past and showered him with flattery, despite some of the recent bits the host has done about him on the show. When Trump brought up his threat to pull out of CNN’s debate unless they paid him, Kimmel joked, “That’s a shame, because you could use more money.” The host also laughed out loud when Trump admitted he’s been “a little bit divisive” during this election cycle. And I think he probably took my words and put them down.” Kimmel then flashed a Facebook picture of Trump’s doctor, Howard Bornstein, in which he looks more like a scruffy beach bum than a medical professional. “Mr.

At the same time, Kimmel gave Trump ample room to criticize and minimize his favorite target, Jeb Bush, giving him the backhanded compliment that he’s “too nice” to kill baby Hitler. Kimmel saved some of his harder-hitting questions for his second segment with the candidate, bringing up the various xenophobic comments he’s made about Muslims and Mexicans—a group that includes his sidekick Guillermo. Eighteen million viewers tuned in – more people watched the debate than watched the season finale of ‘The Voice.’ Maybe Carly Fiorina is the new Gwen Stefani.” Another quip: “My biggest take-away from last night is that, whoever wins the election, we need to force Jeb Bush and Donald Trump to live in a house together with cameras on them 24/7.” Update: Kimmel was mostly friendly to Trump, challenging him at one point for his stance on Mexican immigration and mass deportation.

When Trump once again insisted that he will win the Hispanic vote, Kimmel countered by suggesting we let the Mexicans into the country and kick some Americans out in exchange. 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.” And, for anyone who’s worried, Kimmel’s zingers on Wednesday will be added to the total: “The joke totals will be updated throughout the 2016 Presidential Campaign,” the university assures. In their final segment the host took particular delight in Trump’s ridiculous medical report that came out earlier this week and appeared to be written by the candidate himself, with statements from his personal doctor like, “Mr. There is a tremendous hatred out there…I want to find out what is the problem, what is going on.” He once again marveled at the record ratings for presidential debates, the latest being the 18 million viewers who tuned in to the GOP event on Tuesday.
