Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity Are Feuding, But All of Us Are Losing
To ensure that our sanity is totally exhausted by the time we make it to the weekend, Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity have chosen to spend most of Friday feuding on Twitter.
The spat started on Thursday, when Hannity took aim at Kimmel for making fun of First Lady Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent as she read to children during Sunday’s White House Easter Egg Roll. Contorting his face into a remarkable grimace of righteous indignation, Hannity called “ass clown Kimmel” a “despicable disgrace.”
“This is the guy who defended the multiply alleged pedophile Roy Moore, and I’m a ‘despicable disgrace.’ I’m the ‘ass clown.’ If I’m an ass clown—and I might very well be —you, Sean, are the whole ass circus.”
“You know what I think is disrespectful of the first lady?” he added. “Cheating on her with a porn star after she has a baby. Why don’t you rant a little about that, Sean Hannity?”
From there the feud spilled onto Twitter where, as tends to happen on Twitter, it spun out of control.
And “much more tomorrow” Hannity did have. Since his first #pervertkimmel tweet Thursday night, Hannity has tweeted about his new nemesis nearly 20 times (and counting), mostly with references to Kimmel’s stint hosting The Man Show on Comedy Central, which has been justifiably criticized for its lewd, misogynist segments.
Now that he has firmly and publicly set both feet in the anti-Trump camp, The Man Show is probably a sore subject for Kimmel. Naturally, he felt the need to defend himself, which did not prove particularly difficult here. Kimmel was feasting on low-hanging fruit all day:
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

Kimmel will assure you that he’s not mad, though. Sean Hannity is the one that’s mad.
Unfortunately for all of us, this appears to be far from over. Kimmel and Hannity can’t seem to stop tweeting at each other, and the latter has promised he’s going to unload on Kimmel during his show Friday night, presumably by running down all of Kimmel’s Man Show indiscretions.
You know someone means business when they print out a Wikipedia article.
All of this bickering accomplishes nothing, of course. People who align themselves with Hannity aren’t going to reconsider their worldview because Hannity didn’t respond to Kimmel’s question about whether he’d want his daughters to be “grabbed by the pussy.” None of Kimmel’s fans are suddenly going to think Hannity is capable of making a salient point.
If we’ve learned anything from the Trump era, it’s that pointing out hypocrisy no longer disarms the people being hypocritical—if it ever did. What we’re left with is nothing more than screeching noise coming from two people equally convinced they are outsmarting each other. Nothing could be dumber.
That being said, this is a pretty good burn:
