Jimmy Kimmel quits feud with Sean Hannity, apologizes for Melania Trump jokes

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

Late-night TV host Jimmy Kimmel tweeted a statement Sunday to put an end to his battle with Fox News host Sean Hannity. "I, too, will give my words more thought and recognize my role in inciting their hatefulness".

The freakish, occasionally amusing and ultimately pathetic week-long war of words between Sean Hannity and Jimmy Kimmel took another weird turn Monday night when Hannity accepted Kimmel's apology - and then put his dukes right back up.

Sean Hannity has grudgingly agreed to a ceasefire with his TV host and social media nemesis, Jimmy Kimmel - but the Fox News host is not afraid to "punch back even harder". 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. Should things start popping off again, however, Hannity said he now has a stockpile of the ABC host's career "worst-ofs" at the ready. "Mrs. Trump nearly certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings".

Their fight escalated when Hannity tweeted an old video of Kimmel in his Man Show days that invited women to feel his crotch and called Kimmel "Harvey Weinstein junior". Trump, who is originally from Slovenia, speaks English with a pronounced Central European accent. English is the first lady's fifth language.

Hamilton demands more from his team
Verstappen is the rising star of Formula One, already the victor of three races and a driver Hamilton rates as a future champion. A controversy broke out after the Bahrain Grand Prix , where Hamilton called his Dutch rival a "dickhead" following a clash.

Tough guys don't apologize, and if they must, they certainly don't do it on Fox News. "Why don't you rant a little about that, Sean Hannity?". "That's how I was raised, that's how my religion teaches me and I'm gonna assume he's honest".

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.

Hannity acknowledged Kimmel's statement on Monday night, though he said the message "seems to be more of a forced Disney corporate apology, directed more toward the LGBTQ community rather than Kimmel's comments about the First Lady". He went on to address the LGBT community, which he "did not intend to belittle or upset" by making jokes that insinuated Hannity had a sexual relationship with President Trump.

Hannity promised a response. If you want to come on this show, I promise no name-calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight.
