“So you don’t mind if Republicans turn off your show?” CBS reporter Tracy Smith asked.

“I don’t say I don’t mind,” Kimmel said. “I want everyone with a television to watch the show, but if they’re so turned off by my opinion on health care and gun violence, then … I probably wouldn’t want to have a conversation with them anyway.”

“Good riddance?” Smith asked.

“Well, not good riddance, but riddance,” Kimmel said, laughing.
