“I cannot count the number of times that I’ve been called a Hollywood elitist, which I’ve got to say, I kind of appreciate,” Kimmel joked. “When I was a kid, we had to drink the powdered milk because we couldn’t afford the liquid, our orange juice came out of a can … my dream was to become a Hollywood elitist.”
Kimmel blasted the Republican health care bill and sarcastically apologized for speaking out.
"I'd like to apologize for saying that children in America should have health care,” Kimmel said. “It was insensitive, it was offensive, and I hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.”
He played a clip from a town hall held by Rep. Raul Labrador, R-Idaho, in which the congressman said “nobody dies because they don’t have access to health care.”
Kimmel also brought on Sen. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana, to talk about the new health care bill that has moved into the Senate. Cassidy recently said during an interview with CNN that he's looking for a health care bill from the Senate that will "pass the Jimmy Kimmel test."
