Joe Walsh on Jimmy Kimmel Health Care

Former Congressman Who Can't Pay Child Support Bashes Jimmy Kimmel's Healthcare Plea

In a sobering monologue for his show on May 1, Jimmy Kimmel gave a heartbreaking plea to President Donald Trump on healthcare cuts. The late-night host of Jimmy Kimmel Live! told the world how his newborn son, Billy, recently underwent heart surgery — and his condition, congenital heart disease, qualifies as a preexisting condition. Most people, like former President Barack Obama, were quick to applaud Kimmel for his statements. One former congressman instead took the opportunity to send a rage-inducing tweet directed at Kimmel.

Former representative of Illinois's eighth district Joe Walsh is no stranger to making absurd comments on the internet. However, his latest tweet directed at Kimmel is downright cruel, insensitive, and hypocritical.


Walsh has previously come under fire for claiming to be unable to make child-support payments to his ex-wife and three children in 2011. The congressman claimed he couldn't pay because he "had no money," according to ThinkProgress. Even more maddening, Walsh also rejected health care from the government in 2011 as a way to protest Obamacare, even though his wife has a preexisting condition. The internet was quick to condemn Walsh's comments, with some, like actress Alyssa Milano, calling him out on his child support payments.

Kimmel, on the other hand, has thanked everyone for their well wishes and is asking people to donate to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
