Late Night Host Faces Camera & Threatens Fox News Host: ‘You Phony Little Creep…I’ll Pound You’
Late night funnyman Jimmy Kimmel took to the airwaves Wednesday night and trained his comedy squarely at Fox News. Specifically, hot Brian Kilmeade. Kimmel was upset about their commentary on his attacks against the Graham-Cassidy bill which would largely repeal Obamacare.
Kimmel has jumped head first into the Obamacare repeal efforts lately due to his son being born with a congenital heart disease. Kimmel has attacked initial repeal efforts as well as this latest attempt by Sen. Lindsey Graham and Sen. Bill Cassidy. His concerns focus on the idea that such a repeal would make it impossible for those with pre-existing conditions to get care, a concern that nearly every expert has deemed nonsensical.
Cassidy appeared on Kimmel’s show several months ago and made a promise to oppose and bill that would allow for those with pre-existing conditions to be denied care under any circumstances (this latest bill does not do that) – Kimmel is using that promise as the basis for his attacks.
Kimmel then trained his ire on Brian Kilmeade of Fox News.
“Sunday’s politically charged Emmy’s may have been the lowest rated in history, but that’s not stopping Hollywood elites like comedian Jimmy Kimmel from pushing their politics on the rest of the country,” Kilmeade said.
Kimmel attacked Kilmeade saying he “kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman.”
“Oh he’s such a fan,” Kimmel said. “He follows me on Twitter. He asked me to write a blurb for his book, which I did. He calls my agent looking for projects. He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood elite. The only reason he’s not a member of the Hollywood elite is because nobody will hire him to be one.”
Kimmel said “Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep” will be his blurb for Kilmeade’s next book.
This was Kilmeade’s response.
“This is what I would like to say on this,” Kilmeade said in response. “I hope your son gets better. I hope your son gets all the care he needs. I’m glad you’re interested, you’re doing a great job bringing the dialogue out. But you should do what we’re doing. Talk to the people that wrote it.”
