After losing to Ted Cruz in a charity basketball game this week, television host Jimmy Kimmel donated $5000 to charity, which is not really a lot of money. In total, he an Cruz ended up raising $80,000, which, again, is not a lot of money.
But we’re starting to see an idea take shape…
How about a charity debate with Kimmel vs. Ben Shapiro?
His private jet to Texas for the game cost $30k.
His debate with @benshapiro would raise $1 million, but he has declined.

Well, we’re not sure about a million but we bet it would be more than $80,000. There are already pledge of $5000 from Ryan Saavedra:

And $20,000 from Ben Shapiro himself:
I'll quadruple that number. But it's never going to happen. https://t.co/mSLSFeMlGv

Lest you think this is a stunt, the two have a lot in common … actually, the most important thing in common as their kids have the same heart surgeon:
Again, my daughter had open heart surgery with the same doctor at the same hospital as Kimmel's son. https://t.co/fHIvfzt2Nx

It would actually be a very good debate!
Now, will Jimmy take Ben up on it? Or is he scared of losing … again:
