Kimmel fired back during his nightly monologue.
But they were just following the lead of Sean Hannity, who called Kimmel a "despicable" and disgraceful "ass clown" on Wednesday night for his Melania Trump imitation. So, according to Kimmel, if a joke about her accent makes him an ass clown, Hannity's complicity in all these much more serious acts of disrespect make him the "whole ass circus".
This is the guy who defended the multiply alleged paedophile Roy Moore, and I'm a despicable disgrace? "Is it an ass that's a clown or is it a clown that actually lives in an ass". He elaborated on that a bit.
"I do wanna say, I appreciate how compassionate you've suddenly become to the plight of immigrants in this country over the last 24 hours", said Kimmel. "You could be first lady of the United States!" Kimmel concluded. "Cheating on her with a porn star after she has a baby". Good for you, Mr. Hannity.
Hannity calls Kimmel's joke "brutal", asking Kimmel how many languages he speaks, because "that's her fifth language".
"What even is an 'assclown?'" the late night comedian smirked. Now I'm gonna tell you something.
But the fight didn't stop there as Hannity brought the war to Twitter, calling Kimmel "Harvey Weinstein Jr". "Asking 18 year old girls to grab his crotch and 'put their mouth on it.' Jimmy that's you being a pervert a-hole", Hannity shared.
Kimmel then turned to Guillermo Rodriguez, his Mexican-American sidekick on the show, and said: "Guillermo, you know what this means?" How would you feel if that was your daughter?
To which Kimmel replied, "I can't wait!" "I bet Disney is so proud".
"He's had an erection since November of 2016, and it's driving him mad, he's lost his mind", Kimmel added. Hannity used the hashtag #pervertkimmel both times, referring to an old clip he found of the ABC host asking women to guess what he had stuffed into his trousers.
