How Jimmy Kimmel could still land that Obama interview

President Obama is off to monitor any number of global crises from specially designed situations rooms at six west coast fundraisers that will rake in a fortune for super PACs that he’s previously said threaten our democracy.

Obama flies west Tuesday for fundraisers benefiting Democratic candidates in Seattle and San Francisco. He arrives in Los Angeles on Wednesday, with local Democratic National Committee events scheduled for Wednesday night and Thursday.

There had been reports that Obama was going to appear on Jimmy Kimmel’s show while in L.A., but that’s now off:

“In advance of the trip, we’ve been in touch with Kimmel’s folks about the president doing his show,” Earnest said. “We elected not to do it this time, but hope we can arrange to do it in the near future.”
[...]
But joining Kimmel this week would have meant ceding control during a politically and diplomatically fraught period. And while the fundraisers that Obama has continued to attend — and will again in Los Angeles — have drawn criticism, they do not generate visuals of the sort that would have been created by a Kimmel visit.

Since we know this administration has zero concern about optics, we can conclude this decision was made either because it would have conflicted with a high-dollar fundraiser, or out of fears Kimmel might actually ask a substantive question.

There is, however, still a chance Kimmel could land the Obama interview, but it would require an advertising change for Wednesday night’s show:
