During his monologue, Kimmel thanked all the doctors and nurses and encouraged donations to the Children's Hospital of Los Angeles.
Both former President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton tweeted their support for Kimmel's plea for Americans to come together in support of more affordable health care for infants.
Well said, Jimmy. That's exactly why we fought so hard for the ACA, and why we need to protect it for kids like Billy. And congratulations! https://t.co/77F8rZrD3P— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) May 2, 2017
