Late-night television is back in the new year, but the government isn't. As the government shutdown continues, Jimmy Kimmel made a vow to give federal workers jobs until it ends.

When put on the spot by Kimmel, Kostelnik said he "absolutely" objects to being a "pawn" in Trump's border wall games.

With the government shutdown now in its 17th day and resulting in 800,000 workers either furloughed or working without pay, late-night comedians have determined to make the partial government closure into a grandstanding and anti-Trump affair.

Kimmel announced his plan to employ federal workers who were furloughed by the government shutdown on his show Monday night - and took jabs at President Trump for the prolonged impasse over funding for a border wall. That is where he shines. "Every day of this presidency is a national emergency".
