Jimmy Kimmel apologizes for joke involving Trump, Sean Hannity in bed

Monday, Fox News Channel's Sean Hannity agreed to a truce with ABC late-night host Jimmy Kimmel after a heated back-and-forth battle that began with Kimmel making a joke about first lady Melania Trump's accent.

'I, too, will give my words more thought and recognize my role in inciting their hatefulness'.

"I most certainly did not intend to belittle or upset members of the gay community", Kimmel wrote in a statement on Sunday after a week-long spat. But from 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'". Kimmel fired back during his own show before the two TV personalities took their quarrel to Twitter.

While he said the feud was "over with Jimmy Kimmel", he ended the topic by addressing the late-night host directly. "On the surface, I'll be honest, it seems to be more of a, kind of a, forced Disney corporate apology directed more towards the LGBTQ community rather than about Kimmel's comments about the First Lady".

He also said President Trump's wife had enough to worry about "without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings". He mocked the accent of the first lady, who was born in Slovenia. That's what my religion teaches me, and I'm going to assume he's honest. Fox News published a piece about a petition calling for a Kimmel boycott that exceeded 50,000 signatures. Attacking the first lady for her accent is just one small example, but it's a line in the sand for me.

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. "But now that Trump is president", Kimmel suggested, "Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection".

Hannity said, "I read the apology carefully-a couple of things are clear to me".

The Fox News host addressed the social media exchange on Monday.

Conservatives did not like Kimmel's joke about Hannity, calling it homophobic-the same way they did when Stephen Colbert insinuated during an infamously fiery monologue that the president's mouth was best used as Vladimir Putin's "c-k holster".

He then warned Kimmel: 'If you start up again. No rehashing of the Twitter fight.
