  1. The joy on my favourite Mexican tequila soaked meatball's face when he gets to have the night off and drink.. that's the kind of joy I hope to have 1 day

  2. I respect the fact that they are helping out but to use it as a ploy to bash the president is ridiculous, Kimmel is a media pawn

  3. Brilliant, Jimmy. Making the shutdown real for viewing Americans. 👏👏👏👍👍👍👍👍👍

  4. What kind of country shuts down their government and the employees are still required to work without pay?

  5. fighting worst wildfires in nation's history < having seven daughters (listen to the audience)

  6. I’m starting to dislike Jimmy, putting the mustache on the firefighter just because he resemblance to Guillermo it was just bad taste, so he wouldn’t put him in the place of any white guy?

  7. Working and not getting paid? Doesn’t that violate federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)?

  8. I love this guy Jimmy I swear! God bless brother! We Hispanic are with you!

  9. I hope Trump realizes what he is doing right now is eating people and their families up right now

  10. The man went on show…they told him checks in mail….how rude pay this man you idiots…

  11. I appreciate that Jimmy puts faces on TV of people who are personally affected by politicians who make dumb decisions strictly for political clout.

  12. Thank you allowing these great people of Service a job, very honorable. Sad they aren't getting a paycheck with this standoff

  13. How about Jimmy gives some of his multi million dollar paycheck to the firefighters?

  14. This makes me so sad and happy at the same time. Hopefully this brings awareness to this horrible situation

  15. Hey Stupid Jimmy…..Why don't you walk outside and hire one the thousands of homeless workers sleeping in squalor outside of your studio?
