Brian Kilmeade, a co-host of "Fox & Friends," responded Thursday morning to ABC's Jimmy Kimmel calling him a "little creep" Wednesday night.
Kimmel, host of a nightly talk show on ABC, has been discussing the healthcare bill proposal by Sens. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and Bill Cassidy, R-La. because his baby son has a birth defect. Kimmel has said that Obamacare allows lower-income families who have children with similar conditions to get coverage, but the new bill does not.
Kilmeade on "Fox & Friends" urged Kimmel to speak directly to lawmakers about his criticism of the healthcare bill, according to the Washington Examiner.
"This is what I would like to say on this. I hope your son gets better. I hope your son gets all the care he needs. I'm glad you're interested. You're doing a great job in bringing the dialogue out. But you should do what we're doing. Talk to the people that wrote it," Kilmeade said, referring to the lawmakers who sponsored the bill, according to the Examiner.
Kilmeade called Kimmel one of the "Hollywood elites" who is "pushing their politics on the rest of the country."
Wednesday night on his show, Kimmel slammed Kilmeade, calling him a "phony little creep… oh, I'll pound you when I see you."
On Tuesday night, Kimmel said Cassidy "lied right to my face" about the bill, which Kimmel said fails the "Jimmy Kimmel test," a phrase that Cassidy came up with in May after Kimmel announced his newborn son needed surgery for a birth defect.
