After Jimmy Kimmel’s heartwarming appeal to ensure people receive healthcare, he received a lot of hate from conservatives. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you his response. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. https://tytnetwork.com/join/
“A week after Jimmy Kimmel shared the news about his newborn son’s heart defect — and made an emotional plea about preexisting conditions amid the health-care debate — he returned to his late-night show on Monday to huge applause from his studio audience.
“I made an emotional speech that was seen by millions. And as a result of my powerful words on that night, Republicans in Congress had second thoughts about repeal and replace…. I saved health insurance in the United States of America,” Kimmel said triumphantly. He paused, then was “shocked” to discover the controversial bill passed in the House. “What’s that? I didn’t? I didn’t save it? They voted against it anyway?! I really need to pay more attention to the news.”
Anyway, Kimmel said, his son Billy is doing well. Kimmel also thanked viewers for their support. Then he noted that some people were very critical of his health-care comments. As you might expect, he did not hold back.”
