Sean Hannity’s feud with Jimmy Kimmel began when Kimmel decided to mock Melania Trump for having an accent. When Hannity called him out Kimmel responded by implying that Hannity is gay. This upset the gay community. This is when Kimmel apologized. Hannity’s response to the apology was brilliant.
“I read the apology carefully— a couple of things are clear to me. On the surface, I will be honest. It seems to be more like a forced Disney apology directed to the LGBT community rather than Kimmel’s comments about the First Lady,” said Hannity.
“But honestly, that’s ultimately up to you to decide here. I believe everyone should accept apologies, that’s what my religion teaches me. I assume he is sincere. You want to come on this show? I’ll promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight,” said Hannity.
“You want to have a serious discussion? We can talk about the president, policies, health care, comedy, political correctness, ending boycotts, how I supported Bill Maher, Howard Stern, Don Imus, Opie and Anthony, people that I disagree with vehemently. My bet is you will agree with me on a lot more issues than you think. But from my point of view, it’s over with Jimmy Kimmel,” said Hannity.
“But I meant what I said, unfair attacks— there needs to be an end to this. There is no shortage, by the way, of comedic material out there. Jimmy, if you do want to start up again, I promise I will punch back even harder. My producer spent all weekend compiling a lot of your highlights, or lowlights, in your career. They don’t make you look too good. Instead of airing them, we will put them in storage, and we have more important pressing issues,” said Hannity.
