Jimmy Kimmel shared a very personal and touching story about his newborn and the first few hours he spent on earth after birth. His son, Billy, was born with a heart disease and Jimmy went through the emotional details of a life saving operation that saved his newborn’s life.
During the tearful explanation, Mr. Kimmel referenced the ongoing Republican’s effort to repeal Obamacare and the fact that pre-existing conditions like that of his son, could mean his son ends up getting no healthcare under the Republican’s plan. It was a heart touching story as the comedian’s voice trembled, tears flowing down his face. But Kimmel still kept his audience laughing.
The story caused former president, Barack Obama to tweet a message to Kimmel, saying, “Well said, Jimmy. That’s exactly why we fought so hard for the ACA, and why we need to protect it for kids like Billy. And congratulations!”
If you are a mean person and sent an evil and mean tweet to President Obama… in other words, if you are a Republican and tweeted your unfounded frustrations at the president, then chances are you got your tweet read… by the president himself!
In an appearance Comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s NBC show, the president followed in the footsteps of many other Kimmel guests and read mean and nasty tweets about himself.
And you thought your evilness went nowhere.
We can thank the Republicans in Congress and the conservative media for this. With all their 24hrs barrage of lies about the Affordable Care Act also known as Obamacare, the average American is no wiser as to the benefits of the law or that the simple knowledge that the Affordable Care Act and Obamacare is the same thing.
Jimmy Kimmel proves this point by sending out a camera crew and asking the average joe on the street if he/she prefers Obamacare over The Affordable Care Act. Not even knowing that the two are the same, a majority of those asked chose The Affordable Care Act.
Republicans have indeed made a mockery out of the American people. Thanks GOP!

The video, seen over 9,000,000 times on YouTube was an instant hit, but many questioned whether the video was real. Well on Monday night, Jimmy Kimmel explained that he was in fact, behind the whole thing. And “Caitlin” wasn’t really Caitlin, but a stunt actress named Daphne Avalon.
“To the conspiracy theorists on the Internet who thought the video was fake: You were right it was fake,” Kimmel said, while showing an extended version of the video with him putting out the fire.
“We shot the video about two months ago. We put it up and didn’t send it to any TV station. I didn’t tweet it, we didn’t put it on any websites. We just put it up on YouTube and let the magic happen.”
Kimmel is known for his internet pranks. And this one, was genius!
