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.
Today’s poll. So tonight will @jimmykimmel be 1- Asking 18 year old girls to touch his crotch. 2- Make fun of the First Lady reading books to children. 3- Be a racist asshole. 4- all of the above? @Disney #pervertkimmel https://t.co/bq5WE4eyOP— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 6, 2018
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
You are a bully attacking the First Lady of the USA. Attack me any time you want. Attack @realDonaldTrump anytime you want. Suck up to Obama all you want. Having 18 year old girls grab your crotch is creepy and perverted. How would you feel if it was your daughter Harvey Jr? https://t.co/uuddgKAZJl— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
Stop picking on woman that can’t fightback Mr Harvey Weinstein jr. And maybe pledge not to ask 18 year old girls to touch your crotch and put their mouths on it like you did. Why don’t You Be a grown up and simply apologize. https://t.co/WFP5GdJf25— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
And you kissed the ass of Obama and Hillary for years Mr Weinstein. Answer this question. Would you want a stranger asking your daughter to “grab their crotch, and put their mouths on it? Yes or no Harvey! https://t.co/fLk6hPpDbQ— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
Stop deflecting @jimmykimmel, locker room talk vs. your interactions with women asking them to touch it or put their mouths on it. Maybe you need a reminder, you can see it all tonight on #hannity at 9ET. #pervertkimmel— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
I was number one for all of Cable news in 2017 and the number one most watched show in the first Qtr of 2018. And both Hannity and @MaddowBlog kick your ass every night Mr Weinstein jr on ABC @Disney. And Fallon and Colbert also kick your ass. Perverts like you fail on TV. https://t.co/KP9SAXtNwV— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
Dear Mr Weinstein jr. you are a disgusting pervert. Stop projecting. How you treat the First Lady helping kids is disgusting. How you treat 18 year old girls is disgusting. And your show is a failure. Game on you pervert pig. I’ll be on this till you apologize. https://t.co/wfisPQoaLs— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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
Jimmy (aka Harvey Weinstein Jr) I LOVE it that you like getting your ass kicked like this. I’ll keep exposing you as the pig, pervert and racist you are. #pervertkimmel @disney https://t.co/mhib687lzN— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) 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?
