Once again, Jimmy Kimmel humiliated people in his recent “man on the street” interviews. This time, the late-night host asked people to talk about Obamacare and the Affordable Care Act. He prefaced his video by saying that they’d done these before, several years ago, and people didn’t understand the difference.
“We decided to ask this question again to see if Americans had learned everything over the last three years,” Kimmel said. He quickly revealed that people still don’t know that the laws are the same thing.
One woman explained that she “doesn’t support Obama so I don’t support the Obama-things he’s got going on.”
“So, you don’t like anything Obama does and you prefer the Affordable Care Act?” the reporter asked the woman. She replied with an enthusiastic “absolutely.”
Supporters of Donald Trump weren’t the only people who didn’t know the difference. One man admitted he prefers “Obamacare” to the Affordable Care Act.
Another man was comfortable admitting he had no idea what the difference is so he said he supported the Affordable Care Act because his girlfriend was a Trump supporter.
When asked what the difference between the laws are, one man said, “one you pay and the other Obama pays for you.”
“I believe with Obamacare the premiums are too high, so I believe in the Affordable Care Act,” another man said.
“So, the Affordable Care Act is more affordable than Obamacare?” the reporter asked.
“Correct,” the man said. “Which is obvious because it’s in the name.”

Elizabeth Warren wins coveted Iowa caucuses endorsement from the Des Moines Register newspaper
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received a coveted endorsement on Saturday evening when her 2020 bid was endorsed by the Des Moines Register newspaper.
"Who would make the best president at this point in the country’s history? At a time when the economic deck has become so stacked against working Americans that the gap between rich and poor is the highest in more than 50 years?

"The Des Moines Register editorial board endorses Elizabeth Warren in the 2020 Iowa Democratic caucuses as the best leader for these times."
Lev Parnas’s attorney hilariously trolls Mitch McConnell in bid for witnesses during impeachment trial
The attorney for Lev Parnas trolled Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) on Saturday in a bid for a "fair" impeachment trial.
Attorney Joseph Bondy posted to Twitter a video mashing together the audio of Trump meeting with Parnas and Igor Fruman along with the music from Rick Astley's 1987 song "Never Gonna Give You Up."
Posting the song as an online prank, known as rickrolling, dates back to at least 2007.
Included with the video was a message to McConnell and Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC). Bondy urged the two to "vote with integrity and conscience."
President Xi Jinping warns China’s coronavirus situation is ‘grave’ due to ‘accelerating spread’ of the virus
President Xi Jinping warned Saturday that China faced a "grave situation" as authorities raced to contain a virus that has killed 41 people and caused a drastic scale-back of Lunar New Year celebrations.
The world's most populous country, which is scrambling to contain the disease that has infected nearly 1,300 people and overwhelmed health facilities, is building a second field hospital and closing more travel routes.
After more countries reported cases, Xi said at a Communist Party leadership meeting on the disease that China was "faced with the grave situation of an accelerating spread of the new coronavirus" but that the country will "definitely be able to win the battle," according to state media.
