Late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel relentlessly mocked President Obama’s signature legislation on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday, joking that the number of speeches the president has given on the topic far exceeds the number of people who have actually signed up.
“At the White House today, President Obama gave a speech in defense of his Affordable Health Care Act,” Kimmel began. “He said the whole thing is a disaster and he’s sorry he even tried.”
“Interesting fact: did you know that the number of speeches Obama has made about affordable health care is greater than the number of people who have actually signed up for affordable healthcare?” he added.
But Kimmel didn’t stop there.
“Unfortunately, only about 50,000 people can use the site at a time, which caused problems. Why is it that only 50,000 people can use a government website without crashing it, but like 4 million people can watch a kitten try to get its head out of a potato chip bag?” the comedian said. “…Some people were able to get all the way through the process, only to discover they had inadvertently joined the Navy! They ship out next week!”
