Unfunny Late Night: Trump Will Kill Diabetics With ObamaCare Repeal

Now that the late night hosts have been denied collusion in the Mueller Report, CBS’s Stephen Colbert and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel have moved on to proclaiming that Americans will “die” as a new ObamaCare repeal effort could destroy the country. Colbert imagined that Donald Trump is “going to roll a diabetic off a cliff.” On Wednesday, Kimmel sneered, “Trump unleashed another attack on ObamaCare to make sure no one ever gets help from anyone ever again.” 

After playing a clip of the President saying that America can’t “live” with such an unworkable law, the Jimmy Kimmel Live host snarled, “That's the Trump promise. We can't live with ObamaCare, but by God we're going to die with TrumpCare if that's the last thing we do.” 

 

 

Kimmel’s “jokes” on this clearly aren’t intended for humor. The point is to blast Republicans and push a liberal ideology. This is the same guy who used Chuck Schumer's talking points to attack the GOP over the last ObamaCare repeal attempt. In September of 2017, the Daily Beast explained that the Minority Leader “provided technical guidance and info about the bill.” 

Over on the Late Show, Colbert, joked about Trump killing people. Talking about the Mueller report, he mocked: 

And now [Trump] finally has a chance to get on America's good side. Step one: Take away everyone's health care, because Trump is trying to kill ObamaCare, again: "Mr. Trump, you've just been cleared of collusion. What are you going to do now?" [In Trump voice.] "I'm going to roll a diabetic off a cliff." 

Get it? The President is going to murder people. At one point, Colbert unzipped his pants while impersonating Trump. This is comedy?

Late Show With Stephen Colbert

STEPHEN COLBERT: Still, big win for Trump. I mean, he has been rope-a-doping on this Mueller thing for two years. And now he finally has a chance to get on America's good side. Step one: Take away everyone's health care, because Trump is trying to kill ObamaCare, again: "Mr. Trump, you've just been cleared of collusion. What are you going to do now?" "I'm going to roll a diabetic off a cliff." Come on. Come on, sweetness. Let's go." How dumb is this guy? How dumb is this guy? In the midterms, he got his ass kicked because voters thought health care was the top issue for voters. “Ow. That stove is hot. Let’s try that again with something else.” [Unzips pants.] It’s just a metaphor. It’s just a metaphor, John. Nobody thinks killing ObamaCare is a good idea.

JIMMY KIMMEL: Trump unleashed another attack on ObamaCare to make sure no one ever gets help from anyone ever again.

DONALD TRUMP: ObamaCare is a disaster. It's too expensive by far. People can't afford it. And the deductible is horrible. So the premiums cost too much. The deductible is horrible. The only difference between now and the other administration is that we're administering ObamaCare very well. So we've made it better, but it's still horrible. No good. It's something that we can't live with in this country.

KIMMEL: That's the Trump promise. We can't live with ObamaCare, but by God we're going to die with TrumpCare if that's the last thing we do.
