Jimmy Kimmel played his part in Sean Spicer’s strange redemption tour, but he has also spent this week bolstering his #RESISTANCE credentials with a pair of viral monologues criticizing the GOP’s Obamacare repeal efforts. Check both out below.

Here’s Kimmel’s initial monologue, which focuses its ire on Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA).¬†You might remember that Kimmel went viral a while back for talking about healthcare in the context of his son’s health problems. While a guest on Kimmel’s show, Cassidy¬†pledged to pursue legislation that passed what he called the “Jimmy Kimmel test.” Well, Kimmel test FAILED, apparently:

Cassidy responded, of course. That only earned him a second Kimmel-blasting, though.

The role of late-night comedy shows in our politics is so, so weird right now.
