Most of us must have seen Jimmy Kimmel’s Monday night monologue, which showed the danger of Trumpcare.
Kimmel had used the backdrop of his infant son’s miracle heart surgery hours after birth to make a passionate plea to Trump and Republicans to keep Obamacare in place.
We all saw this except Fox News viewers. Fox News was forced to cover the story because they had no choice. However, they ate the humble pie and still did the unthinkable by completely editing-out his concluding remarks.
According to an analysis by The Daily Beast:
“In at least three instances on Tuesday, FOX News hosts told Jimmy Kimmel’s emotional story about his infant son while ignoring his plea for unity on Obamacare.”
Shannon Bream, co-host of the daytime news show “America’s Newsroom,” said, “Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel putting aside comedy and opening up about his newborn son’s open heart surgery. Kimmel’s son Billy was born April 21 but had to undergo a procedure at just three days old in Los Angeles. Thankfully all is well, and Billy is now home with his parents and older sister. It’s easy to forget that these guys have a real life and real pain just like everybody else, worried about their kids.”
However, Kimmel said:
“Until what, a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease like my son was, there was a good chance you’d never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition. If your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to, it shouldn’t matter how much money you make. No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life…it just shouldn’t happen here.”
