Liberal talk show hosts embarrass themselves frequently on live television when they pretend to know a thing or two on politics or the struggles of the average American. Unfortunately, late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel took it a step too far when he decided to exploit his sick infant son on TV.
Late night talk shows have quickly become Trump-hating cesspools where celebrities bash conservative and Christian principles while spewing their lies in hopes of Americans believing all of the garbage coming out of their mouths. Sadly, in the country we live in now, many liberals form their opinions from what their favorite celebrity tells them to believe. Hollywood’s finest will stoop to any level to get their audiences to believe what they want them to believe, but this time it was taken too far.
Tuesday evening, Jimmy Kimmel addressed the American health care situation. However, Kimmel doesn’t know what’s best for the American people, and the last person we want to take advice from on our well-being is some entitled Hollywood millionaire.
While the Republicans and President Donald Trump try to pass another health care bill to repeal the disastrous Obamacare, Jimmy Kimmel is doing everything he can to stop it and push for socialized medicine. During his seven-minute ad for liberal health care, he had the nerve to exploit his sick infant son in hopes of changing minds on socialism.
Kimmel proudly stated, “I am politicizing my son’s health problems because I have to. Somehow Japan and England and Canada and Germany, France, they all figured health care out, and don’t say they have terrible health care because it’s just not true.”
Kimmel started his rant by stating:
“I know you guys are gonna find this hard to believe, but a few months ago, after my son had open-heart surgery, which was something I spoke about on the air, a politician, a senator named Bill Cassidy, from Louisiana, was on my show, and he wasn’t very honest. It seemed like he was being honest; he got a lot of credit and attention for coming off like a rare, reasonable voice in the Republican Party when it came to health care for coming up with something he called, and I didn’t name it this, ‘The Jimmy Kimmel Test,’ which was, in a nutshell, no family should be denied medical care, emergency or otherwise, because they can’t afford it. He agreed to that; he said he would only support a health care bill that made sure a child like mine would get the health coverage he needs no matter how much money his parents make, and that did not have annual or lifetime caps.” [Source: Daily Wire]
Kimmel previously had Senator Bill Cassidy on his show to talk about health care, and he apparently didn’t get enough attention the first time, so he had to bring his sick child into the mix in hopes of grabbing more attention. Well, it worked, but not in a sense he was hoping. What’s going on with Kimmel’s son is heartbreaking and in no way should be publicized. Shame on him.
As if exploiting his child isn’t bad enough, there are many inconsistencies with his proposition. Maybe someone should tell Kimmel about little Charlie Gard and what socialized medicine did to his family. A sick child was denied treatment, and his parents didn’t even get to decide on his future.
Conservative political commentator Ben Shapiro said, “Kimmel’s invocation of his son is also absurd on a moral level: Kimmel’s son didn’t lack health care. Neither would anyone else who needed surgery at CHLA. That’s because CHLA is a charity hospital with an endowment of hundreds of millions of dollars. Emergency heart surgery is not denied to babies based on ability to pay. The cost may just be extraordinary on the other end. Dr. Vaughn Starnes, the doctor who operated on both our children, isn’t in the business of denying dying babies surgery because their parents lack coverage. That would be true whether the parents picked up the check or the hospital did or the state did. Cost allocation is not the same thing as treatment availability.”
Jimmy Kimmel is making his buddy Barack Obama proud while he tries to shame America with his sick child. Using an emotional situation to prove a point is never a valid argument. Only a liberal would stoop to the level of using a sick child to shove their ridiculous agenda down the throats of Americans.
