Jimmy Kimmel Humiliates Fox & Friends' Brian Kilmeade in Masterful New Health Care Monologue

Jimmy Kimmel absolutely shredded “Fox & Friends” host Brian Kilmeade for dismissing his criticism of the Republican health care bill — which the talk show host personalized with his own family’s experience.


The “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host called the bill’s co-sponsor, Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA), a liar Tuesday night and then ripped Kilmeade for shrugging him off as the Hollywood elite.

“The reason I found this comment to be particularly annoying is because this is a guy, Brian Kilmeade, who whenever I see him kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman,” Kimmel said. “Oh, he’s such a fan.”

He said Kilmeade usually seeks his approval, and explained why the Fox News host was a hypocrite.

“He follows me on Twitter, he asks me to write a blurb for his book, which I did,” Kimmel said. “He calls my agent looking for projects. He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood elite. The only reason he’s not a member of the Hollywood elite is because nobody will hire him to be one, and the reason I’m talking about this is because my son had an open heart surgery, has to have two more, and I learned there are kids with no insurance in the same situation. I don’t get anything out of this, Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you.”

The audience roared in approval, but Kimmel wasn’t finished.

“That is my blurb, that will be my blurb for your next book,” he said. “‘Brian Kilmeade is a phony little creep.’ That’s right.”
