Comment: Jimmy Kimmel has Donald Trump this week. I dunno, what would you ask Mussolini if he was your guest on a Talk Show.?I can’t see the slightest chance of anything but softball questions to a man with all the makings of a fascist. Or if that is too hard a term, just a fathead. A man who will say anything about anything. A man who makes Dick Cheney sound reasonable. How does Kimmel play softball? He has been tough on Trump in the past. Fallon had it easier in September.  Definitely worth watching.
