Attention, Hollywood: Jimmy Kimmel will be hosting both presumptive GOP candidate Donald Trump and Democratic hopeful Bernie Sanders next week. Comedian Jimmy Kimmel will welcome Donald Trump to his show on Wednesday, followed by Bernie Sanders on Thursday. Both candidates have appeared on the show twice before, according to Variety.

As you may know, Kimmel films his show during the afternoons on Hollywood Boulevard, so you may want to plan accordingly for traffic. Last time he was in town, Sanders strolled Hollywood Boulevard to talk with voters.

The other previous Kimmel appearance for Sanders, during which Sanders did his impression of Larry David, took place while Kimmel was broadcasting from Brooklyn.

During a previous appearance, a characteristically orange Trump discussed his physical health, and was treated to a children's book that Kimmel ghostwrote for him. It was called Winners Aren't Losers.

No word on when Hillary Clinton will next appear on Kimmel, though she has been on the show before. Kimmel has been facetiously campaigning for VP, and said he will be selling related merchandise at various SoCal Costco stores.

Meanwhile, over at HBO, Brit-in-America John Oliver has recently stated once again that Trump has not ever, nor will ever, be invited to appear on his show. He did, however, invite John Miller—a one-time Trump publicist believed to have actually been Trump himself—on his show to prove his existence.
