Barack Obama responded to Jimmy Kimmel’s emotional speech about the ACA

Well this is touching.

After his incredibly moving opening monologue last night about his newborn son’s open heart surgery and his support for the Affordable Care Act, late night host Jimmy Kimmel got a tweet from the man who made it happen, former President Barack Obama.

In case you haven’t seen the monologue (and truly, it’s a must-watch), Kimmel reveals that his son was born with a heart defect that required emergency open heart surgery. After thanking the wonderful doctors and nurses who saved his son’s life, Kimmel talked to his audience about the incredible importance of the ACA.

“If your baby is going to die and it doesn’t have to – it shouldn’t matter how much money you make,” the tearful host said. “I think that’s something that whether you’re a Republican or Democrat or something else, we all agree on that.”

“No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life…it just shouldn’t happen,” he pleaded.

Obama, seeing Kimmel’s impassioned speech (which, again is a must-watch), responded in a tweet Tuesday afternoon.

Like Kimmel said, let’s take care of each other.

Gordon Ramsay is in for some unsavory comments for dissing Indian snack

Ace chef and television presenter Gordon Ramsay, who’s known for his sharp tongue, was left with a bad taste in the mouth when he tried to humor an Indian Twitter user.

The bloke, Rameez, tweeted to Ramsay asking him to ‘rate’ his food photo. Just like many users do to invite supposedly hilarious insults from the celebrity chef.

But what ensued in this case was, umm, unsavory.

First, the user’s tweet.

Medu Vada is a popular breakfast dish in southern and western India.

It consists of spiced lentil batter fried in doughnut-shaped dumplings, and is served with yellow sambar (lentil curry) and white coconut chutney (made of coconut pulp ground with other ingredients such as tamarind and green chilies.)

Then, came Ramsay’s acerbic reply.

The dig was possibly made at the utensil on which the dish was served.

But it rubbed Indians the wrong way. Angry reactions surfaced in no time.

Ouch! That escalated fast.
