(Fwrd Axis) — President Joe Biden will make his first late-night talk show appearance since talking office on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday night, the show’s host tweeted on Sunday.
The news came late Sunday as Kimmel tweeted “Our very elected President @JoeBiden visits @JimmyKimmelLive Wednesday night,” Kimmel said. “No malarkey.”
Biden’s appearance comes amid low approval ratings and frustration mounting inside the White House, which has been dealing with several crises from the baby formula shortage to record-high inflation and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The President has been criticized by many for not holding official news conferences but his public remarks do usually end with wide-ranging question-and-answer sessions that can last several minutes to answer questions from reporters.
Biden and first lady Jill Biden will travel to Los Angeles this week for the inaugural ceremony at the Summit of the Americas which will last through Friday. The President will tape his appearance on Kimmel’s show earlier in the day Wednesday and is expected to be in California through Friday.
The Summit of the Americas will take place from Monday through Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The first of its kind event will bring together the Western hemisphere leaders to discuss strengthening democracy, protecting human rights, and promoting regional security. Secretary of State Antony Blinken is also expected to make an appearance.
