Jimmy Kimmel ramps up battle against GOP health care bill

Jimmy Kimmel Live airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

"I don't want to turn this into a Kanye-and-Taylor-Swift-type situation, but when Senator Cassidy was on my show in May, he told me that he believed that every American family regardless of income should be able to get quality health care", Kimmel continued. His supporters say, 'Well he's a doctor and you're not, what do you know?' To them I say, all of these very reputable associations - American Diabetes Association, American Medical Association, American Cancer Society, American Heart Association, the list goes on and on - all of these groups populated by doctors say this health care bill is bad, they're against it. "I don't get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep".

After being called part of the "Hollywood elite" by "Fox & Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade following Kimmel's initial monologue against the bill and against Sen. "I hope your son gets better".

Flash forward and Cassidy is now one of the two main architects of the GOP healthcare plan that is on the verge of passing the US Senate.

The late-night host also said, "This is a guy, Brian Kilmeade, who whenever I see him kisses my a** like a little boy meeting Batman". Cassidy to take it. "It's called a lie detector test", Kimmel said.

Kimmel made this point himself Tuesday night by bluntly accusing Cassidy of coming on his show in May and lying "right to my face" when he vowed to follow the Kimmel test before supporting any healthcare proposal.

Kimmel said "Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep" will be his blurb for Kilmeade's next book.

"Sunday's politically charged Emmys may have been the lowest-rated in history, but that's not stopping Hollywood elites like comedian Jimmy Kimmel from pushing their politics on the rest of the country". It does! A great Bill.

Kimmel also gave attention to an issue, attention Republican leaders surely didn't want to see, at a time cable television was preoccupied with hurricanes, the Mexican quake and ongoing investigation into President Trump's Russian connections. But you should do what we're doing.

"As a person who wrote many thousands of jokes for late-night television, they've taken it to a whole other level", he said.

Rob Burnett, filmmaker and former executive producer of David Letterman's "Late Show", said Kimmel's monologues were some of the most important things he's ever seen in late-night television. "The Democrats should just rename it 'Ivankacare.' Guaranteed he gets on board". Why don't you actually save other kids instead of using your kid to bring in socialism and globalist control for big fat-cat corporations that want to make us buy overpriced health care?
