Jimmy Kimmel vs. The Graham-Cassidy Health "Care" Bill: Round 2

Late-night hosts poking fun at politicians is to be expected. But politicians having to comment on a late night host’s criticism of their health care bill? That’s a bit rarer.

But that’s what happened last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! If you’ve been following the show this week, you’ve seen Kimmel’s heartfelt appeal against the health care bill sponsored by Senators Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham

Well, the senators have responded. Senator Cassidy said “I’m sorry [Kimmel] doesn’t understand” and colleague Senator Chris Christie said "he’s not a serious person."

Did Kimmel take the criticism lying down? Of course not. Check out the video above to see what happened next.
