Kimmel Plays His Anti-Trump Trump Card

After two heart surgeries, Jimmy Kimmel’s 7-month-old son is doing just fine — but many other children are at risk. So, the late-show host brought Billy on Jimmy Kimmel Live Monday night to make another emotional plea for health care. “Daddy cries on TV but Billy doesn’t,” Kimmel laughed as he held back tears. “It’s unbelievable.”The host asked a few of his celebrity friends to cover the show in his stead so he could be at home as Billy recovered. Born in April, Kimmel’s son suffers from a congenital heart condition called tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia, and he underwent his first open heart surgery at 3 days old. Now, Kimmel and Billy are standing up for the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
