Surprise! Look who was helping Jimmy Kimmel with ‘nonpartisan’ talking points

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel quickly became the face of the entertainment wing of The Resistance to Obamacare repeal recently — specifically as it pertains to the Graham-Cassidy bill. Now that Graham-Cassidy looks to be dead in the water (thanks in part to John McCain, who has many new fans on the Left), more details are surfacing. One MSNBC journo leaned forward far enough to call Kimmel’s opposition to Graham-Cassidy “nonpartisan,” but, to paraphrase Bill Clinton, it depends on what your definition of “nonpartisan” is:

Behind the scenes, the ABC star was getting an assist. Kimmel and his team were in touch with health care officials, charities and advocacy groups, multiple sources told The Daily Beast. He also was in touch with the office of Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y) who, according to a source familiar with their conversations, “provided technical guidance and info about the bill, as well as stats from various think tanks and experts on the effects of [Graham-Cassidy].”

The three episodes in which Kimmel tore apart both Cassidy—who had previously insisted that any health care bill pass a so-called “Jimmy Kimmel test”—and the bill’s specifics helped galvanize public and political opposition to the legislation.
[…]
The two had been in touch “periodically” over the last several months as prior legislative efforts were considered and their conversations continued when Graham-Cassidy began gaining steam.

Hopefully the senior senator from New York gets a chance to autograph the cue cards he helped write for the late night host’s “bipartisan” effort to oppose the latest O-care repeal effort.

And for the MSM who are at the moment probably saying to themselves “so Kimmel talked to Schumer, big deal,” here’s a hypothetical scenario:

Imagine if Leno had taken an anti-Obama stance, and it came out he had been fed talking points by Mitch McConnell https://t.co/VMWGGH7P6W

DiCaprio supports belief-based test to hold office (Out: Theocracy – In: Leo-cracy)

Who’s up for another “global warming” science lecture from mega hypocrites with Titanic-sized carbon footprints? Me neither, but sometimes it has to be done:

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio says history will judge President Trump harshly for his inaction on climate change.

Speaking Tuesday at a Yale University climate conference, DiCaprio lashed out at Trump for pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Accord.

“We are going to look back at this point in history, and frankly this administration, and certain people are going to be vilified for not taking action,” he said, according to the Hartford Courant.

“We should not have people in office who do not believe in facts and truths and modern science that are able to manipulate and risk the entire future of this entire generation,” he told former Secretary of State John Kerry.

Is there anything less science-y than the words “believe in” followed by “science”? Maybe instead of “theocracy” that particular belief-based system of government could be known as a Leo-cracy.

If I were the president I’d sign an EO officially grounding the private planes of Kerry, DiCaprio, Gore and so many others and say “you wanted me to take action on emissions, you got it!

And by the way, DiCaprio took that shot at “deniers” while this guy nodded his big noggin in approval:

In winter, he [Kerry] goes helicopter skiing while staying at his wife’s Idaho retreat, a 15th-century farmhouse transported from England and reassembled on the banks of the Big Wood River in Sun Valley. In summer, he windsurfs and sails off the coast of Nantucket, where she has another home. The couple have an 18th-century town house in Boston where the kitchen is two stories high. There is a 23-room town house in Washington, an 88-acre Pittsburgh area estate, a private Gulfstream jet and a personal staff of six, including caretakers and a cook.

On the upside, by saying climate change “deniers” shouldn’t hold public office, at least DiCaprio slammed the door in his own face when it comes to a potential political career:

If we could only harness the power of rich celeb eco-hypocrisy, the world’s energy problems would be solved.
