Chuck Schumer Coached Late Night Host Jimmy Kimmel On Opposing Obamacare Repeal

Democrats love Hollywood and Hollywood loves Democrats. All last week, Jimmy Kimmel used his show to campaign against repealing Obamacare and it turns out he had some help. He actually got coached by Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer.

The Daily Caller reports:

Chuck Schumer Coached Jimmy Kimmel Behind The Scenes On How To Oppose Obamacare Repeal

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer’s office offered Jimmy Kimmel “technical guidance” to assist the talk show host in his vendetta against Republicans’ most recent attempt to repeal and replace Obamacare.

Schumer’s office “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of [Graham-Cassidy],” a source familiar with their conversations told the Daily Beast.

Kimmel, who thrust himself into the health care debate by broadcasting his son’s medical issues in May, has established himself as an influential voice in the fight against the Obamacare repeal effort.

Kimmel chastised Cassidy during three successive episodes of ABC’s “Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel,” for his sponsorship of the Cassidy-Graham bill. Kimmel argued Cassidy failed to follow through on his vow to only support legislation that ensures care for seriously ill infants like Kimmel’s son, a vow Cassidy made during a recent appearance on ABC’s “The Jimmy Kimmel Show.”

So the Jimmy Kimmel show is Democrat propaganda now? Good to know.
