Hannity Invites Jimmy Kimmel, James Comey Onto His Show

Adjust Comment Print

Since the start of Donald Trump's presidency, Kimmel has tackled topics such as health care and immigration on his late-night ABC show, "Jimmy Kimmel Live", but the feud between him and Hannity began when Kimmel made a joke about First Lady Melania Trump, poking fun at her heavy accent.

Things took an ugly turn, however, when Hannity then compared Kimmel to Harvey Weinstein, showing old sketches from Kimmel's previous series The Man Show. Kimmel appeared to be taken aback but instead of taking the high road, returned Hannity's invective by calling him "the whole a** circus". For me, it was never about Hannity vs. Jimmy Kimmel. "On the surface, to be honest, it feels more like a forced Disney corporate apology directed more towards the LBGTQ community rather than about Kimmel's comments about the First Lady", the Fox host said. "Mrs. Trump nearly certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings".

Kimmel finally apologized Sunday for the homophobic tweets, and to Hannity and Trump in an effort to finally end the feud.

The TV personalities went back and forth for several days before Kimmel tweeted an apology on Sunday, stating that "the level of vitriol from all sides... does nothing good for anyone and, in fact, is harmful to our country". "Attacking the First Lady for her accent while reading to kids is just one small example, but it's a line in the sand for me".

He did warn, however, that if Kimmel wanted to go another round, "I promise that I'll punch back even harder", referencing more damaging clips of Kimmel that Hannity's producers had supposedly found over the weekend. "But now that Trump is president", Kimmel suggested, "Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection".

In the G7 ThinQ's case, it's also getting a solid forehead, too, looking about the same size as the Galaxy S9's. It wouldn't be surprising if some of the colors will exclusively be available in South Korea, LG's home country.

After being called a "despicable disgrace", Kimmel accused Hannity of hypocrisy: "This is the guy who defended the multiply alleged pedophile Roy Moore", referring to the Alabama Republican Senate candidate.

Kimmel has not responded to Hannity's invitation to join his program as of Tuesday morning.

"I believe everyone should accept apologies", Hannity said. I'll have a full and comprehensive response tomorrow on Hannity.

Kimmel made fun of first lady Melania Trump's accent during a segment on his late night talk show earlier this week. I'll promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight.
