What did Sean Hannity say about Jimmy Kimmel?

CONSERVATIVE commentator Sean Hannity slammed Jimmy Kimmel in a segment of his primetime show on May 10.

The two media personalities have been going head-to-head over a comment made by Caitlyn Jenner during an interview with Hannity.

What did Sean Hannity say about Jimmy Kimmel?

Fox’s political pundit Sean Hannity lashed out at late-night host Jimmy Kimmel for referencing his interview with Caitlyn Jenner.

Hannity sat down with Jenner on May 5, 2021 to discuss her potential California gubernatorial race.

Kimmel criticized Jenner over a comment she made about homeless people in the state to which the comedian said: “Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole? Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a-hole, even though she happens to be a trans person, show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a-holes? 

“It’s a tough one, I don’t know, I guess we’ll let the internet decide tomorrow.”

Kimmel’s comments circled back to Hannity, who said: “Jimmy, what is with all the anger and all the cheap shots?”

“Don’t you have anything better to do? Maybe actually trying to be funny or boost your dismal ratings because we’re absolutely crushing you by like 70% in total viewers.”

Adding: “Jimmy, here’s my advice, don’t talk about my show anymore. You talk about my show, I’ll hit you back 50 times harder.”

Kimmel has yet to address Hannity’s comments.

Hannity also told colleague Laura Ingraham about Kimmel’s comments, saying: “We had a little spat back in the day. 

“And if he wants me to remind his bosses at Disney of all the crap that he’s done over the years that, frankly, are pretty ignorant, to use his words, I’ll be glad to pick that fight.”

When did Sean Hannity and Jimmy Kimmel argue?

Kimmel and Hannity went back and forth on Twitter and national TV in 2018 over Melania Trump’s accent.

At the time, Hannity called Kimmel a “despicable disgrace” for making fun of the former first lady.

Kimmel apologized a few days later, releasing a statement on Twitter and tagging Hannity.

“I will take Sean Hannity at his word that he was genuinely offended by what I believed and still believe to be a harmless and silly aside referencing our First Lady’s accent,” Kimmel wrote at the time.

“Mrs. Trump almost certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings.”

What did Caitlyn Jenner tell Sean Hannity?

Jenner confessed to Hannity that she liked how former President Donald Trump "shook up the system” when he was in office.

She also mentioned that she was in favor of building the border wall, saying: “I am all for the wall, I would secure the wall. 

“We can't have a state, we can't have a country without a secure wall.”

The former Olympian has also branded Democratic governor Gavin Newsom and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as "elitists" in her first campaign ad.
