Jimmy Kimmel Insists 'I'm Nobody's Moral Arbiter'

Jimmy Kimmel Insists 'I'm Nobody's Moral Arbiter'

Jimmy Kimmel said he's seen the polls and knows Republican viewers are tuning out after his show has gone political with talks about gun control and healthcare, but he's not anxious about it.

"Maybe not 'GOOD riddance, ' but 'riddance, '" he replies.

Kimmel sat down with ABC, the same network that airs his weeknight show, and was asked if Trump will visit him next week when Kimmel's show will be taped in Brooklyn.

The late-night host opened up about the health of his son Billy, who underwent emergency open heart surgery only three days after his birth in late April, during his Sunday, Oct. 15, 2017 interview with The New York Times.

And then Republican numbers went way down, like 30% or whatever.

"I had a late night with David Letterman birthday cake".

Trump's frustration with Congress, which has failed to confront all the problems that have arisen with Obamacare over the years. And I'll just say, people told us over and over again that they had pre-existing conditions and they finally got health care.

Two issues, healthcare and gun control, have propelled Kimmel to either hero or dirtbag status, depending on how one views each issue.

Conservatives like Ben Shapiro have systematically dismantled Kimmel's 'arguments.' Shapiro in particular has taken the lead by asking why Kimmel, a late-night comedian with a checkered past himself, all of a sudden gets to be the "great moral arbiter of our time". Kimmel insisted, "I'm not, I agree with him".

"Maybe this is insane, but I feel like I could turn him around on a couple of things", Kimmel said in an exclusive interview with ABC News' Amy Robach for "Good Morning America".

Kimmel said that fans can expect some "surprises" from his Brooklyn shows. "You don't have to listen to what I say".

"I want everyone with a telvision to watch the show, but if they're so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence, then..."

I can't boycott a show I don't watch (Jimmy Fallon is much funnier), and I don't generally support boycotts. "Not good riddance, but riddance".
