Neil Patrick Harris filled in brilliantly on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Wednesday, trashing Kimmel foe Matt Damon, Donald Trump's slurred speech, and the rampant sexual harassment problem turning tinsel town on its head. "Jimmy told me today that the respirator is out", he said.

"I'm thrilled his son Billy's heart operation was a success". "He is eating, he is smiling". Billy is a courageous little boy.

"We were brought up to believe that we live in the greatest country in the world but until a few years ago, millions and millions of us had no access to health insurance at all", Kimmel told his audience that night as he made his case for available healthcare, regardless of political party or income. "I emailed Jimmy, and he said, 'I just want you to watch.' So, there I am, in my living room breastfeeding Billy with my mom beside me, and we're watching".

Kimmel's wife, Molly McNearney, told The Hollywood Reporter earlier this week that people ask about Billy all the time. Our family has excellent health care; he had nothing to gain from that.
