A Politician Made Heartless Comments About Jimmy Kimmel's Sick Son, And The Internet Is Furious

By Justin Luke

Former congressman Joe Walsh showed his true colors on Tuesday.

After an emotional opening monologue by Jimmy Kimmel during Monday night's broadcast in which he detailed the scary ordeal of his newborn son's heart defect and subsequent open heart surgery, Walsh tweeted out on Tuesday morning a disgusting display of comments about the child:

Kimmel had praised the Affordable Care Act during the 13-minute monologue, saying, that everyone deserves a chance at life:

We were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world, but until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all. Before 2014, if you were born with congenital heart disease, like my son was, there's a good chance you'd never be able to get health insurance because you had a pre-existing condition.
