Don't Fall for Jimmy Kimmel's Cheap Zero-Sum Emotionalism

Kimmel Furiously Rails Against Bill Cassidy's “Scam” Healthcare Bill

Instead of using your kid, instead of pimping your kid out there to push Obamacare that's created to wreck health care. After Kimmel's monologues on his late night television show, the bill might not see the light of day.

"This plan is not a good thing", Kimmel said in urging his viewers to call their lawmakers to protest the bill. He's dying to be a member of the Hollywood Elite. "And the only reason he's not a member of the Hollywood elite is no one will hire him to be one".

"Before you post a nasty Facebook message saying I'm politicizing my son's health problems, I want you to know: I am politicizing my son's health problems because I have to", Kimmel said on September 19's "Jimmy Kimmel Live", according to Us Weekly.

Kilmeade replied to Kimmel's low blows with a classier response, wishing his son well and encouraging the late night star to learn more about the proposed bill. I see these comments from these angry people that say, 'What qualifies you to talk about this stuff? Along with fellow Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, Cassidy authored a bill that now has White House support to dismantle the 2010 Affordable Care Act passed under former Democratic President Barack Obama.

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

"I don't get anything out this, Brian, you phony little creep".

That now doesn't seem to be the case, which is why Kimmel attacked Cassidy this week during his show monologues.

The funnyman also took issue with President Trump's insistence the bill is "great" and "includes coverage of pre-existing conditions". "I'm politicizing my son's health problems because I have to", he said Tuesday.

Kimmel's charge the Kilmeade kissed up to him in private before criticizing him in public was very Trump-like, too.

Trump also said this of a protester at one of his campaign rallies previous year: "I'd like to punch him in the face". (Kimmel's son needed open-heart surgery in May due to a congenital heart defect.) "Hope your son gets all the care he needs". You're causing the - you are doing a great job bringing the dialogue out.

"Kimmel has now spent 24 minutes on national TV this week talking about health care", tweeted Dan Diamond of Politico.

Kimmel's arguments led to back-and-forth arguments between himself and the bill's sponsors, Sens.

If Kimmel presumes to speak for Americans on healthcare, he should do more homework and actually take the time to learn and internalize the stories of people who've lived through Obamacare nightmares.
