Jimmy Kimmel challenged Donald Trump when he appeared Wednesday on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” focusing on Trump’s call for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S.

The Los Angeles Times notes that Kimmel talked about Trump before the GOP presidential front-runner came out: “The host was pulling no punches, characterizing billionaire Donald Trump as a bully and saying that at one point he had to decide ‘whether to buy the United States or just become our president.’”

Here’s a clip posted by the show:

  1. The negative spin attempted by the written copy is not supported by the clip! Watch the clip, Trump comes across well. The “crank call” remark was a throw away line for humor not a substantive comment. TV Week does better than most in avoiding blatant media bias but it is quite clear here.
