On the Wednesday broadcast of his late-night program, Jimmy Kimmel responded to criticism he has received for his controversial monologue Tuesday night where he ripped Republican Senator Bill Cassidy for using his name to push for the Cassidy-Graham Obamacare replacement proposal.
Kimmel, a fierce proponent of the healthcare law, received many rebuttals for his political statement notably FOX & Friends host Brian Kilmeade. Kilmeade called Kimmel a member of the "Hollywood elite" for "pushing" politics. Wednesday night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, the host set his aim at the FOX host and let loose.
Kimmel said the FOX host "kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman" whenever the two cross paths and claimed he is "dying" to be a member of the "Hollywood elite."
"The reason I'm talking about this is because my son had an open-heart surgery and has to have two more, and because of that I learned there are kids with no insurance in the same situation," he said.
"I don't get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I'll pound you when I see you," Kimmel threatened.
