And he had especially harsh words for the bill's co-sponsor, Louisiana Sen.
Kimmel, a fierce proponent of the healthcare law, received many rebuttals for his political statement notably FOX & Friends host Brian Kilmeade.
Trump also jumped into the fray on Wednesday, claiming that Cassidy would never lie and that the bill covers pre-existing conditions.
The audience loudly cheered when Kimmel threatened to beat up Kilmeade.
The host explained how Sen.
But healthcare policy experts have said that the Graham-Cassidy bill would allow states to apply for waivers that could lead to insurers charging people with preexisting conditions more for coverage. Which means he either doesn't understand his own bill - or he lied to me. He just cares a lot about squashing the Graham-Cassidy bill. Cassidy, the co-author of the Graham-Cassidy bill that is by far the worst ObamaCare repeal bill Republicans have put forth, Cassidy on Wednesday demeaned Kimmel, suggesting that he's a talk show host who just doesn't understand the legislation. Bill Cassidy (R-La.).
Kimmel then ended his 10 minute monologue by encouraging Americans to call their senators about the new health care bill. "Oh, I get it". "I think he's been on the show". Kimmel charged. "Well then, help me out. Which part don't I understand?" he said. "Is it the part where you cut $243 billion dollars from Federal health care assistance?" he asked. "Or could it be, Senator Cassidy, that the problem is that I do understand, and you got caught with your G.O.P. -enis out?"Читайте также: Trump's UN address redefines US role
"Which part of that am I not understanding?" he continued.
The last time the GOP tried to get its "skinny" Obamacare replacement bill passed, Kimmel shared a gut-wrenching story about his newborn son Billy having to get emergency open heart surgery. Speaking in reference to Cassidy's promise only to support a bill that does not penalize people for pre-existing conditions and does not include caps or high premiums, Kimmel stated that the new health care bill offers no such protections.
"He just wants to get rid of [ObamaCare] because Obama's name is on it", Kimmel said. "He's dying to be a member of the "Hollywood elite.' The only reason he's not a member of the 'Hollywood elite" is that no one will hire him to be one", Kimmel said. "That will be my blurb for your next book - Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep", Kimmel said. "I don't understand because I'm a talk show host, right?"
Kimmel said "Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep" will be his blurb for Kilmeade's next book.
Watch the whole thing above.
To internet commenters who disagreed, Kimmel has a message: "You can shove your disgusting comments where your doctor won't be giving you a prostate exam once they take your health benefits away".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
