"With that said, I do admire that he's very loyal to his father (US President Donald Trump)".

Jimmy Kimmel joked about his declining viewership with Republican voters in a tell-all interview this week.

"And not just the food. but the people there", Kimmel added. "I don't know, I probably wouldn't want to have a conversation with them anyway".

During an appearance on CBS' "Sunday Morning," the "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" host responded to a question about his late-night cry-fest on healthcare and gun violence with a hearty "I'd do it again in a heartbeat", regardless of the fact that Republican-leaning audience members are leaving his show in droves. And, you know, as a talk show host, that's not ideal. Kimmel insisted, "I'm not, I agree with him". After all sixty million Americans voted for Donald Trump. "The license plate on my auto said late night with David Letterman", said Kimmel.

When it hit the dad, Jimmy Kimmel that the only reason his son is recovering well is due to his position and ample income, he went public his personal story, and the world listened. His monologue quickly garnered an outpouring of support from fans. It is a trait that has recently put him at the center of the national debate over several hot-button issues: health care and gun control. "It's exciting and rewarding but more than anything it's weird", said Kimmel.


When asked if he'd like to have him on, Kimmel replied, "Absolutely". "I left for paternity leave and then I didn't come back".

"I don't say I don't mind. And then all of a sudden, I was gone for a week". "You don't have to watch the show".

"We have some people that are going to show up".

"I mean, Harvey Weinstein is not a friend of mine".
