Jimmy Kimmel has returned to late night television after taking time off to spend time with his wife and newborn son, Billy, who was born with rare and significant heart defects.

Kimmel had shared the news of Billy’s health complications in an extremely emotional monologue last week, and in the process he also took a stance on healthcare in the United States. That episode sparked renewed debate—and plenty of backlash from supporters of the Trump administration’s efforts to scale back the Affordable Care Act.

Kimmel addressed the support and critics of his emotional monologue in this latest clip from Jimmy Kimmel Live!
