Sarah sends sentiments out to Kimmel family

While at the NYC Hulu Upfronts to promote her “I Love You, America” talk show, Sarah also commented on the recent health scare Jimmy Kimmel had at the birth of his son, Billy. This is how US magazine reported it:

Sarah Silverman is supporting her ex Jimmy Kimmel after his emotional monologue about his newborn son’s heart surgery on the Monday, May 1, episode of his late-night show.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host, 49, who is now married to Molly McNearney, opened up about their baby boy, William “Billy” John Kimmel, needing heart surgery shorty after his birth. He was diagnosed with a “tetralogy of fallot with pulmonary atresia,” which means the pulmonary valve is blocked and there’s a hole in the heart wall. He used the speech to endorse the Affordable Care Act and stress that health care shouldn’t be a partisan issue.

Silverman, 46, who dated Kimmel on and off from 2002 to 2009, thought it was a “beautiful” monologue. “Look, you saw his show Monday. He said everything there was to say. I think it was beautiful,” she told Us Weekly and other reporters at the Hulu upfronts in NYC on Wednesday, May 3. “I loved his appeal to please not defund things like the children’s hospital. The children’s hospital depends so much on this because 40 percent of the people being affected by the heath care cuts are children.”

The I Love You, America star praised her fellow comedian for being well-spoken. “He made a very elegant, heartfelt, bipartisan plea the last two minutes of that monologue, and I thought it was brilliant and not that that’s where his mind is at to be brilliant right now, but my heart is with both of them, and I’m glad things are looking up,” she said.

As Kimmel explained on the show, his son’s operation was a “success” and Billy is “doing great” thanks to care at the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.

Elite interviews Sarah at upfronts

Here’s an excerpt from today’s EliteDaily.com article about Sarah, which included this interview that took place at the Hulu upfronts in New York City on May 3, where Sarah talked about her upcoming talk show.

by Stephanie Ironson – May 8, 2017

At the Hulu Upfront, Elite Daily had the chance to speak with Sarah Silverman about her upcoming show and the message she wants to get out to millennials who are experiencing the jarring effects of politics for the first time.

Sarah spewed her words of wisdom for Gen Y and advised us to “be loud. Don’t get tired because that’s part of I think they’re doing, they’re rope-a-doping us, they’re trying to tire us out. We’re bombarded by daily atrocities and it’s easy to just want to curl up and watch you know, ‘Pretty Little Liars’ or something… do that sometimes, sure, but never stop speaking out, showing up, using your vote and, you know what’s more effective than anything? You know we’re not seen as people or citizens. we’re seen as consumers, really look at where you spend your money there’s a Ma and Pa alternative to pretty much everything you buy.”

Silverman went on to dissect the differences between big businesses and their smaller counterparts and how millennials need to take note and take action:

“Switch from a bank to a credit union, it’ll change your life zero. I mean the only difference is the rates are lower at credit unions, we just don’t know about credit unions because the government and the banks that have trillions of dollars don’t want us there. Banks are for profit endeavors and that’s why they fund Big Oil, which we also don’t need the only reason we have it is so we’re beholden to more Big Oil to make oil billionaires into oil trillionaires there’s no real reason for it. You know what creates jobs? Wind energy, solar energy, there are so many other things we don’t need to rely on it the reason why they’re building pipelines is to force us to rely on it for decades to come and by relying on banks we’re complicit in that. Move to credit unions.”

While this new show is sure to be wickedly funny and entertaining, there is no doubt Silverman’s intense passion and understanding of the issues that divide our nation will inspire watchers to get up and do something.
