With the things Kimmel says about Trump why on earth would anyone think he would receive a note of any kind?

Default Fake News - Attacking Trump for not offering synpathy to Jimmy Kimmel

https://www.yahoo.com/style/jimmy-ki...020017518.html

Celebrity Jimmy Kimmel's son has to have 2 more serious surgeries. And 3 of 6 living presidents sent him sympathy....so enter the hit piece with this title "Jimmy Kimmel Named 3 Presidents Who Reached Out About His Son - Guess Which 1 Didn't?"

Factually THREE didn't. Carter, Bush Sr., and Trump didn't. The article just points out that Trump didn't, while Clinton, Bush, and Obama did.

Isn't there enough real scandal to attack rather than Fake News like this?

Trump wastes enough of his time on twitter, is he suppose to waste time calling all celebrities about their personal/family problems? What about old celebrities from past decades that are largely forgotten? Should he call every normal citizen about problems like you and me?

Will this same author, Kelsey Garcia, mention that Trump has called soldier's families that have died overseas? Not yet anyways. Yet, I am suppose to be disgusted that he didn't call a celebrity.

Doesn't this fake outrage/fake news actually help Trump as it takes the focus off of real issues and most people see through how fake and petty this is anyways?

So, Kimmel believes that the POTUS should be spending every moment reaching out to people who have endured tragedy?

Of course not, he believes he is special and elite and that he deserves the attention of the President.

Quite the ego.

How sad that Kimmel feels the need to politicize the grave illness of his son. I don't watch any of the 3 late night hosts, but if this story is true, he's trying to ratchet up the hate to equal that of Colbert, apparently.

Who cares, and who does Kimmel think he is, the head of state of a country to expect American presidents to write to him?

My uncle died this week, and I didn't receive (nor expect to) any presidential correspondence. Also, and correct me if I am wrong, but ins't Kimmel a big critic of Trump?
If so, why would he expect someone he trashes on a regular basis to communicate with him?

Fake News means 1) It's Fake and 2) It's News.

#1) What is fake? Is it incorrect information? Is it wrong? If it's not wrong, then it's not fake.

#2) The link is from PopSugar. That's not news. It's a celebrity and pop culture focused web site. Their goal is to get people to their web site.

Would this be the Jimmy Kimmell who makes a great deal of money attacking Trump?

I'd say that Trump shouldn't waste his time thinking about him.

Don't get worked up over an effective click bait title.

You won't believe how these 9 shocking clickbaits work!
THESE 7 WEIRD TRICKS FOR CLICKBAIT TITLES WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
You won't believe the lengths this Hobbit went through to return a piece of jewelery!

Kimmel was asked a question about Obama's public tweet and asked who else showed support. He responded with "President Clinton sent a letter. President [George W.] Bush sent a very nice letter. A number of congresspeople sent notes," That's it. The source of your outrage.
