Comedian Jimmy Kimmel tones down feud with Sean Hannity with apology

CC BY-SA 3.0

The feud began after Hannity had sharply criticized Kimmel for mocking First Lady Melania Trump's accent last week. Then he turned to his heavily accented, Mexican-American sidekick and said, "Guillermo, you know what this means?" For example, Hannity mocked Mrs. Obama for being part of a rap video that encouraged young people to go to college, declaring on his Fox News show: "The Western world is under constant threat from Islamic jihadists, but your first lady, Michelle Obama, is busy making a rap music video about going to college".

"Hannity says he'll address Kimmel's statement on his Monday show".

Hannity, who's been silent on social media over the past two days, has been alerted to Kimmel's apology. With Hannity being an avid fan of Trump, and Kimmel being against his morals and policies this was bound to happen eventually, but not like this.

Hannity, cable television's most fervent supporter of the Republican president, took exception, and he and Kimmel exchanged barbs through the week. Hannity responded by blasting the "low-rated talk show host" and "ass clown" for attacking the defenseless First Lady, and it kept growing from there.

"Dees and dat", Kimmel repeated during the segment on his late-night show. He slammed the host during his prime-time Fox News show, by name-calling Kimmel a "despicable disgrace" and an "ass clown". A link to "load more" episodes was not working Saturday evening. "You could be first lady of the United States".

Kimmel went on to suggest Hannity was suffering from "an erection" that has been "driving him mad" ever since President Donald Trump won the 2016 election.

Kimmel also apologised for a crude joke he made at Hannity's expense, which had offended the gay commmunity.

On Sunday, Kimmel posted a statement to Twitter in which he acknowledged that he had "fun" but said the vitriol from both sides is "harmful to our country".

In response, Hannity didn't apologize to the victims of Weinstein that he demeaned.

He tweeted he had just received an alert about the Kimmel apology while at "a tournament with my daughter".

The late-night host's last line was a sarcastic dig at Hannity's relentless attacks on "The Man Show", an old, oft-politically incorrect show Kimmel hosted with Adam Carolla in the early 2000s.
