Frank Sinatra's ghost has a swingin' insult song about Trump for Jimmy Kimmel

In a new book, Frank Sinatra's longtime manager Eliot Weisman says that in 1989, casino magnate Donald Trump tried to renegotiate a deal for Sinatra to play Trump's new Taj Mahal casino, because the price negotiated by Trump's late business partner was "a little rich." Sinatra reportedly told Trump to "go f--k yourself." "It's amazing — people are now rising from the dead to curse at Donald Trump," Jimmy Kimmel said on Tuesday's Kimmel Live. "Now, I don't know if this story is true, but it does come from a reliable source. If only there was a way to verify if this really happened," he said, causing Sinatra's ghost to rise, microphone in hand, doobie-doobie-dooing and ring-a-ding-dinging.

Kimmel asked Sinatra's Rat Pack-era ghost about Trump. "That guy," Sinatra's ghost replied. "He's a doobie-doobie-douchebag," and Weisman's account is accurate but incomplete. To illustrate his feelings, he sang a familiar song, aided by a friendly ghost. The NSFW parts are bleeped out, baby. Watch below. Peter Weber
