Kimmel Celebrates Graham-Cassidy Bill Being ‘Almost Certainly Dead,’ Thanks Collins and McCain

Jimmy Kimmel returned tonight after an “emotional weekend” to celebrate the possible end of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill.

Kimmel talked about meeting a lot of people who came up to him over the weekend to talk about how Obamacare’s helped them and told him, “Mr. Fallon, thank you for speaking out.”

The late night host slammed President Trump for repeatedly calling Obamacare a “disaster” and said that “common sense and decency prevailed” when John McCain “pulled a Red Wedding on this thing.”

He thanked McCain and Susan Collins for coming out against the bill, but he also responded to the conservative media picking up on the news that he spoke with Chuck Schumer on health care matters.

Kimmel sarcastically copped to having a secret plan to topple Graham-Cassidy all along as he responded to “right-wing hysteria.”
