ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live is featuring guest hosts this week. Kimmel’s show explained in an email his son Billy’s scheduled second heart surgery had to be postponed this week due to a common cold.
In May, Kimmel announced on his show that his son had been born with a heart defect and would need multiple heart surgeries. In an emotional monologue, Kimmel argued against GOP’s stabs at killing Obamacare, and especially as regarded impact on people with pre-existing conditions, saying, “If your baby is going to die, and it doesn’t have to, it should not matter how much money you make. I think that’s something, whether you’re Republican or a Democrat … we all agree on that, right? Whatever your party … we need to make sure people who are supposed to represent us, people who are meeting about this right now in Washington, understand that very clearly.
