Both Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity have now called off their public feud, but with enough loose ends remaining that it remains to be seen whether it’s really over.

Hannity responded on his Fox News program Monday night.
“In his ending monologue, Hannity grudgingly accepted the olive branch, though he called it a ‘forced, Disney apology,'” The Washington Post reports. “He invited Kimmel onto his show for a fuller debate, since Kimmel has taken on the administration’s positions on health care and immigration.”
Hannity is quoted saying of the week-long feud: “It’s over.” But he adds, addressing Kimmel: “If you do want to start up again, I promise I’ll punch back even harder.”
