Jimmy Kimmel Was Fed Talking Points By Chuck Schumer

Unless you’ve been living under a rock this week, you’ve noticed the revived fight by the GOP to repeal and replace Obamacare.
The day after President Trump addressed the 72nd Session of the United Nations General Assembly, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer was speaking at a Gates Foundation’s Goalkeepers event.
He said, “Those of you who live in countries that already have universal health care are trying to figure out what’s the controversy here.  People are trying to undo that progress for the 50th or 60th time. It’s aggravating and all of this being done without any demonstrable economic or actuarial or common-sense rationale.  It frustrates.  It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on our constituents.”
Now you’re a smart cookie.  That last sentence is crucial: “It’s certainly frustrating to have to mobilize every couple of months to keep our leaders from inflicting real human suffering on constituents.”
That’s where late night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel comes in.  His nightly monologues were spent condemning Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), authors of the Graham-Cassidy Bill which seeks to do away with the onerous Obamacare legislation.
The three episodes in which Kimmel tore apart both Cassidy—who had previously insisted that any health care bill pass a so-called “Jimmy Kimmel test”—and the bill’s specifics incited public and political opposition to the legislation.
Hence former president Obama’s snide comment about having to “mobilize” every couple of months plays into Kimmel’s role in all this.
Thanks to Lachlan Markay and others at The Daily Beast we are now learning that behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups and with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer who, according to a source familiar with their conversations, “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of Graham-Cassidy.”
His public condemnation was biting and garnered plenty of media attention. No one has called him out on using his sick child as a prop for his Obamacare sycophancy.
“This guy, Bill Cassidy, just lied right to my face,” Kimmel said in his first show, airing a clip of his May interview with the senator. “Stop using my name,” he said to Cassidy.
Kimmel revisited the subject the next night, going after Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade for questioning why he was weighing in on health care at all.
“I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you. That is my blurb—that would be my blurb for your next book: ‘Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep.’”
The following night, Kimmel went at it again, this time singling out President Donald Trump. “I guarantee he doesn’t know anything about this Graham-Cassidy bill,” he said of the president. “He doesn’t know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. He barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka!”
