Oh no he didn’t! Many Bachelor Nation fans were eagerly awaiting Bachelor in Paradise’s first rose ceremony of season 4 when partway into the East Coast broadcast on Monday, August 21, viewers got an eyeful of Donald Trump instead. That’s because ABC cut away from its popular summer reality show to air the president’s speech about the U.S.’s new strategy in Afghanistan.
Needless to say, BiP fans were less than pleased. And like the commander in chief is wont to do, they tweeted their displeasure over the interruption of the highly anticipated handing out of roses, with some even calling for his impeachment for what they considered an ill-timed speech. (Viewers had waited three episodes, after all!)
“We finally get a rose ceremony and TRUMP INTERRUPTS?” one viewer tweeted angrily. “If this isn’t cause for impeachment idk what is.”
“I signed up for mindless joy watching #BachelorinParadise tonight. Not this f—ky,” another fan ranted. “Go away trump. #BIP #Impeach”
But to be fair, Bachelor Nation host Chris Harrison did give fans a heads up earlier in the day when he tweeted: “Sadly The President’s speech will eclipse #BachelorInParadise tonight. But ABC will be showing it later for those that get Trump’d.”

Dear Trump,— Rebecca Nathanson (@becca221) August 22, 2017
You won't be recieving a rose tonight so it's time to get off the stage so we can get on with the rest of the rose ceremony #BIP
This speech interrupting #BIP is gonna keep me up past my bedtime... It's rude, it's disrespectful, it's overall very on brand for Trump— Cecile Lonjaret (@cecilelonjaret) August 22, 2017
Can't Trump just leave ONE thing in my life alone?! I just wanted Monday nights to myself to watch #BIP. Pick any other time to do this 🙄— Elsa Thibodeau (@elsa_thibodeau) August 22, 2017
I'm sorry Trump, you did not receive a rose, please say your goodbyes and exit the White House immediately #BachelorInParadise— Simone (@HeySim1) August 22, 2017
