Jimmy Kimmel Continues Fight Against GOP Repeal Effort for Third Day

Jimmy Kimmel, who has found himself in the middle the fight over American health care, responds to criticism from Senator Bill Cassidy and others who think the comedian should stay out of it.

"For Donald Trump, this isn't about the Graham-Cassidy bill. It's about getting rid of Obamacare, which he hates, primarily because Obama's name is on it," said Kimmel.

"At this point he would sign anything if it meant getting rid of Obamacare. He'd sign copies of the Koran at the Barnes and Noble in Fallujah, if it meant he could get rid of Obamacare."

"I guarantee he doesn't know anything about this Graham-Cassidy bill He doesn't know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. He barely knows the difference between Melania and Ivanka."

"A lot of people have been saying that I'm not qualified to talk about this," Kimmel said.

"And that is true, I'm not qualified to talk about this, but I think those people forget -- Bill Cassidy named this test after me! Am I supposed to just be quiet about that?"

"I see these comments from these angry people, that say 'What qualifies you to talk about this stuff, you're a comedian. Go back to being not funny,'" Kimmel said.

"I feel like it's my duty to remind these people who are so concerned about my qualifications: The guy you voted for President – his job qualification? Was he fired Meatloaf. And you put him in the White House."
