Jimmy Kimmel has spent a lot of airtime since President Trump was elected trying to take down the president — but he only wants it his way.

Page Six reports:

Jimmy Kimmel, who has made it routine to talk politics on-air after his newborn son underwent open heart surgery last year, now can’t seem to get away from discussing the White House — whether he wants to or not.

“It’s something I’m passionate about, but that doesn’t necessarily mean I want to talk about it for hours at a cocktail party,” he told InStyle in an interview posted on Friday. “But I know there’s a reason they share these stories with me. It kinda keeps me going, because I do get a lot of negativity.”

The 50-year-old, who has never shied away from taking jabs at the Trump administration, took on health care during his “Jimmy Kimmel Live” monologues when the issue hit close to home as his son Billy underwent heart surgery for a birth defect.

But still, Kimmel said he was never looking to talk politics all the time.
