Back in April, Jimmy Kimmel delivered an emotional monologue about his newborn son's health crisis. Kimmel's words placed him in the middle of the national healthcare debate, and became a rallying cry for Americans counting on Congress to come up with an affordable alternative to the ACA. Now, Kimmel is again front and center for his politically-charged Emmys appearance, his Sean Spicer interview, and his takedown of the latest healthcare proposal.
Fox claims that Kimmel, a member of the "Hollywood elite," should stop talking about politics, since he is not equipped to speak out knowledgeably on such matters.

Meanwhile, a reality TV show host is on the loose running and fucking up the country.
Fox News:Jimmy Kimmel shouldn’t talk about politics, he’s a comedian— HeatherAnneCampbell (@heathercampbell) September 21, 2017
Me: Our President shouldn’t talk about politics, he’s a reality TV star
Kimmel has never pretended to be more than a concerned parent with a platform, which should be laudable. So who do we believe? Maybe Kid Rock? Or Scott Baio? Or ex-soap hunk Antonio Sabato Jr.?
