Late night show host, Jimmy Kimmel, made a big comeback to his show and had a little companion with him..his son.
While some may think this was on a positive note, it was actually one more effort by Kimmel to take a swing at Republicans and president Trump.
Prior to his rant, Kimmel was gone from the small screens for about a week and announced he had to take care of his son who had undergone another heart surgery.
Kimmel’s eyes began watering as soon as he opened his mouth to discuss his son’s condition.
“Parents with children together with cancer and diabetes and heart problems are about to get a letter saying their coverage could be cut off next month,” Kimmel pleaded.
Kimmel appealed that the funding for C.H.I.P. – Children’s Health Insurance Program is preserved. At the same time, he threw a couple of low-blows towards the GOP, saying they were to blame this program was non-existent, which they used as a “bargaining chip.”
“This happened because, Congress, about 72 days ago, failed to approve funding for CHIP,” he continued.
Kimmel carried on, defining Congress as “disgusting,” because they chose to handle the tax plan first and children’s health second.
“This is literally a life and death program for American kids, it always had bipartisan support, but this year they let the money for it expire while they work on getting tax cuts for their millionaire and billionaire donors.”
Kimmel is beloved by celebrities in Hollywood and many of his liberal friends, who even call him “America’s conscience” due to his ability to confront the right on their political views.
Look, Kimmel’s son has nothing to do with this. He is an innocent soul, who will sadly grow up being a liberal. However, the real problem is that Kimmel is uninterested in all people who cannot afford premiums and have no doctor’s appointments, because Obama wanted to play God, and introduced a ‘saucy’ healthcare.
Kimmel was largely criticized on social media as a result of his outrage.
After taking weeks off from being “America’s Conscience” while his celebrity pals get slammed for sexual harassment, Jimmy Kimmel is back & again using his son as a political prop.
This time he’s using Billy to spread lies about CHIP funding, which has passed the House.

I see Jimmy Kimmel is back to being America’s conscience after weeks of not being America’s conscience because that would involve going after powerful people in his own industry.

C.H.I.P. is expecting has passed House in November, but has Senate to look forward to.
Many applauded Kimmel’s monologue, including Democrat Senator Dick Durbin. Kimmel even got the thumbs up from the ever-scandalous DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Every American should ask why Republicans have decided to put tax cuts for billionaires ahead of health care for sick children. The answer isn’t pretty. https://t.co/f785Zn53vO
