TMZ reported that the president would be on the show for a “secret mission.” However, a short time later TMZ amended the report to say that Obama is scheduled to appear at the El Capitan Theatre next door to where Kimmel tapes, but he will not be on the show.
In its update, TMZ says: “A rep for the Kimmel show tells TMZ Obama will not be doing the show Wednesday. Our ABC sources, however, continue to say he was booked on the show and multiple LAPD sources continue to tell us Obama is scheduled to be at The El Capitan Wednesday at 3 PM for an hour.”
Obama is scheduled to attend a couple of fundraisers while in Los Angeles this week, including one at the home of Grey’s Anatomy producer Shonda Rhimes on Wednesday night, where the guests at the $1,000-per-ticket event will include Scandal star and Emmy nominee Kerry Washington. He also is set to attend another fundraiser at the home of Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino.
