Jimmy Kimmel Seeks to Bury the Hatchet With Hannity

Apr 9, 2018  •  Post A Comment

Jimmy Kimmel appears to have declared a truce in his war with Sean Hannity, issuing an apology of sorts Sunday on Twitter after savagely attacking Hannity on the air last week.

You can see Kimmel’s tweet below, and click here to see Kimmel’s attack on Hannity last week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” along with other clips that have been a part of the war of words.

Kimmel says in his tweet that he had fun in his exchanges with Hannity, but he adds that “after some thought, I realize that the level of vitriol from all sides (mine and me included) does nothing good for anyone and, in fact, is harmful to our country.”

He references some of the blowback that has been targeted at him and his family, including “the vile attacks against my wife and wishes for death on my infant son.”

Here’s Kimmel’s tweet …

  1. Well, I think you hit the nail on the head when you called it “an apology of sorts.” Apologies are genuine and heartfelt. You could look for that with a magnifying glass in Kimmel’s words and you wouldn’t find it. He’s taking this approach because he’s being pilloried on social media for his obviously insensitive portrayal of the First Ladies “accent.” Comedians are usually given some leeway with things of that nature, but Kimmel is not a comedian. He’s just not funny. And that’s a requirement for a comedian. Had someone made fun of Michelle Obama and the way she says the word STRENGTH (she says STRENFFF) that would have been met with the same kind of reaction on social media as Kimmel is experiencing now. But I’ll bet Kimmel never even considered a monologue like that for Mrs. Obama. That tells you all you need to know. (By the way, former NBA coach and current color commentator Hubie Brown also says STRENFFF). 🙂

  2. Attacks against Mrs. Kimmel are vile. Attacking Mrs. Trump because she is an immigrant is ok? Maybe Jimmy needs to check with Jerry Brown about how to deal with immigrants.

  3. Any attack on Mrs. Kimmel is vile. But it is ok to attack an immigrant because she is married to Trump? Jimmy needs to check with Jerry Brown about how to treat immigrants.
