After Jimmy Kimmel's blistering monologue Tuesday night where he tore into the Graham-Cassidy health care bill and particularly co-sponsor Bill Cassidy (R-LA) for lying to him, the segment got a great deal of attention yesterday. A good deal with praise, particularly from families with healthcare concerns, but also some criticism, most notably on Fox and also the bill's co-sponsors.
So, Kimmel came back last night with a response -- in fairness, showing the criticism and answering it, but being just as withering as before, if not more so. He also included a "Barrista Theater" comedy sketch to help explain some problems with the bill. And the monologue went on for an impressive 10 minutes.
As I said yesterday, for a fellow who postured his career as a goofball shlub, not bad.
