Jimmy Kimmel accepts Roy Moore's invite with a searing takedown

  Jimmy Kimmel accepts Roy Moore's invite with a searing takedown On Thursday, Roy Moore, the controversial Senate candidate accused of sexual misconduct with minors, challenged Jimmy Kimmel to go “man to man” on his home turf in Alabama. That same day, Kimmel accepted. “What I’m gonna do is — and I think you’re actually gonna like this, Roy — I’m gonna come down to Gadsden, Alabama with a team of professional cheerleaders,” Kimmel said during an incendiary takedown on Jimmy Kimmel Live. “We’ll meet you at the mall. Don’t worry, I can get you in,” he added in reference to rumors that Moore was banned from a shopping mall for bothering underage girls. “And if, when the girls and I show up, if you can control yourself and behave, if you can somehow manage to keep little Roy in your little cowboy pants when they those nubile cheerleaders come bounding in, you and I, we’ll sit down at the food court, we’ll have a little Panda Express, and we’ll talk about Christian values.” Their public sparring stems from Tony Barbieri, a Jimmy Kimmel Live comedian who suited up as his comedic persona, Jake Byrd, to disrupt a church service where Moore was speaking.

Jimmy Kimmel took to Twitter Friday to provide an update on his three- month - old son Billy and to share a photo of the infant, the first since Kimmel ' s emotional opening monologue in May, when he revealed that Billy had undergone open- heart surgery three days after his birth.

Jimmy Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed their second child together, William John “ Billy ” Kimmel on Friday, April 21. But at three days old , Billy had to have open heart surgery at Children’ s Hospital Los Angeles.

Originally, Billy’s surgery was scheduled in late October but had to be postponed “due to the common cold,” the network said in a statement at the time.

In April, Kimmel and his wife Molly McNearney welcomed William John “Billy” Kimmel and announced that at 3-days-old, Billy underwent the surgery at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles because of his condition, the tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary atresia.

“Basically, the pulmonary valve was completely blocked and he has a hole in the wall between the left and right sides of his heart,” Kimmel previously explained in a tearful monologue in May, adding that despite the successful open heart surgery, Billy will have another operation between 3 and 6-months-old.

Kimmel and McNearney also share a 3-year-old daughter, Jane. The host has two older children – Kevin and Katie – from a previous relationship.
