Sean Hannity is in a feud with Jimmy Kimmel, and it’s gotten nasty. The Fox News star is calling Kimmel a pervert after the late-night host made fun of Melania Trump’s accent this week. Kimmel, meanwhile, is egging on Hannity. And it’s all playing out in front of everybody on Twitter.
After Kimmel slammed the first lady following the White House Easter Egg roll, Hannity responded forcefully on his show. Kimmel called Hannity an “ass clown.” Then, the feud was on with Hannity calling Kimmel “Harvey Weinstein Jr.” and posting old, sophomoric clips of Kimmel on The Man Show. Kimmell responded by claiming that he reveled in the online brouhaha.
And from there it went.
I vote for whichever one best helps you trivialize the horrors of Harvey Weinstein by comparing them to televised comedy bits in which every woman was a willing participant who gladly signed a release https://t.co/6jlpRqtttY— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
Thank goodness we have kind, tolerant men like you to protect this nation from bullies. https://t.co/gVmJwtEGeJ— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
When your clown makeup rubs off on Trump’s ass, does it make his butt look like a Creamsicle? https://t.co/DEhmfOh0Hn— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
The answer is yes. Every woman involved WILLINGLY participated – it’s called a comedy bit. It’s what you’ve been unwittingly doing for years. Now YOU answer THIS question. Would you want your daughter being “grabbed by the pussy”? Yes or no? https://t.co/T51yTnoyVc— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
I knew you wouldn't answer the question. No one likes you. https://t.co/pd8DE5cvIB— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
Don't worry – just keep tweeting – you'll get back on top! (or does Trump prefer you on bottom?) Either way, keep your chin up big fella..XO https://t.co/R4QJCoGYCL— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 6, 2018
Dear @SeanHannity thx for the trip down Man Show memory lane. The idea that YOU'd call ANYONE a “pervert” while slobbering over Trump, Ailes, O’Reilly and, YES, Roy Moore – who you DID SUPPORT is, to quote a fella you love very much, “Sad!” #nobodyissafefromKimmelspervertedwrath— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 7, 2018
I’m starting to think SOMEONE has a crush on me! https://t.co/PPhSOqBeWn— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 7, 2018
What you don’t seem to realize is that I LOVE this. I guess it’s one of my perversions https://t.co/OCp9lTwuTj— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 7, 2018
Sounds like a win-win. If only Congress could get along as well as you and I do. Goodnight sweet Sean. https://t.co/A0e6pDvw6P— Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) April 7, 2018
If you’re enjoying this, stay tuned to their Twitter accounts. It sounds like there’s probably more to come.
Update 2:15pm CT, April 8: Kimmel on Sunday said he wanted a truce with Hannity and apologized to Melania Trump. Will Hannity accept?
