Sean Hannity Accepts Jimmy Kimmel's Apology, But Adds A Warning: 'I'll Punch Back Even Harder'

Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity have been engaged in a nasty Twitter feud that took a odd turn when the late-night host drew fire for some tweets that some have considered to be homophobic, while Hannity maintains he's taken offence to Kimmel imitating the accent of first lady Melania Trump on his talk show. "I, too, will give my words more thought and recognize my role in inciting their hatefulness".

He rolled a series of Kimmel clips, mostly from the comedian's days as a co-host of Comedy Central's "The Man Show", that featured segments showing Kimmel with an exaggerated fake erection, asking women to find something hidden in his trousers and going up to random women in the street asking if they wanted to have sex with him. "But for my point of view, it's over with Jimmy Kimmel". He said the idea that Hannity would call anyone a pervert while he was "slobbering over" Donald Trump is, "to quote a fella you love very much, 'sad'". After several strongly worded Tweets were exchanged back and forth between the two television hosts, Kimmel issued an apology on Sunday, one that Hannity took to the airwaves to accept.

The late-night host said he still thought his initial joke was an innocuous rib about the first lady.

He did, however, say Kimmel's "forced Disney corporate apology" seemed to be geared more towards the gay community, which was offended by homosexual jokes about President Trump.

They have chose to operationalize the five working groups under "Afghanistan Pakistan Action Plan for Peace and Solidarity". Foreign office on Thursday in a statement said that the visit aimed at reducing mistrust between the two neighbours.

Hannity lashed out during his Fox show on Friday calling Kimmel a "sick, twisted, creepy, perverted weirdo" and went as far as calling him 'Harvey Weinstein Jr.'. "You could be first lady of the United States". I'm going to assume he's honest. "But now that Trump is president", Kimmel suggested, "Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection".

The fight with Hannity migrated to social media, too, with Hannity digging up old clips of Kimmel engaging in crude sexual humor on The Man Show, which Kimmell co-hosted from 1999 until 2003. As he invited the comedian to join him on his program, Hannity told Kimmel, "You seem honest when you talked about health care, you seem honest when you talk about the country". "I read [Kimmel's] apology carefully", he said.

Sean - and full disclosure I write columns over there at the Hannity website - has also invited ex-FBI Director James Comey on both his radio and TV shows. "I promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight", he said.
