Are double layers of Spanx cutting off the circulation to Newt Gingrich’s brain? That’s the nicest explanation for elitist creep Gingrich’s harsh criticism of Kimmel’s now famous monologue on the occasion of his newborn son’s lifesaving surgery.
Kimmel has become a vocal advocate for healthcare for every American, and a target for bloated Republican toads like Gingrich, who is disseminating false information about health care, and attacking the messengers, who often times are late-night comedians. The last laugh is on Gingrich, and the take-down is beautiful to behold.
Jimmy speaks with Louisiana’s Republican Senator Bill Cassidy about the health care debate. Cassidy is the closest thing to a Republican with a heart, but even he simply cannot imagine a way to find funding to cover all Americans. No wonder Gingrich hates late night comedians, Kimmel suggests that he for one, is happy to forego the proposed tax breaks for millionaires, if it means that everyone can have health care.
