Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel — the newly crowned “conscience of health care repeal” — went on the attack last night against Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade after Kilmeade hit on Hollywood for “pushing their politics on the rest of the country.”
Kimmel accused Kilmeade of secretly wanting to be part of the very Hollywood elite he railed against. Highlights:
Kilmeade “kisses my ass like a little boy meeting Batman.”
He “asked me to write a blurb for his book, which I did.”
“He’s dying to be a member of the Hollywood elite.”
“Brian, you phony little creep. Oh, I’ll pound you when I see you.”

We’ve moved on from punching Nazis to punching Fox & Friends hosts?
Kimmel threatens assault at the end there. So this is where journalists all stand up and defend Kilmeade now right? Guys? https://t.co/0OLUSRwq9l

But lefties loved it, naturally:
Well done. People like Kilmeade make a living bullying people from a Fox News studio to support policies that hurt people like Kimmel's son. https://t.co/aEYuvHH5LY
