Sean Hannity feuds with Jimmy Kimmel over Melania Trump joke

"Now that Trump is president, here's the twist: Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection", Kimmel said.

As per usual, the chat show host opened his late night programme with a monologue, and last night's was dedicated to the fact that Fox correspondent, Sean Hannity, had only gone and called him an "ass clown".

Jimmy finishes the monologue by suggesting Hannity is purposefully deflecting attention onto Kimmel when there are much more important events unfolding in U.S. politics. "More importantly, why is Sean Hannity openly fantasizing about clowns in the ass?"

Asking all the important questions.

"Sean Hannity's problem is that for eight years, while Obama was President, he was unable to get an erection". Hannity called the remarks "disgraceful" and the host an "ass clown" on Fox.

New episodes of Jimmy Kimmel Live air weeknights at 11:35 PM EST only on ABC.

Other Fox News hosts have joined in the criticism, albeit less vindictively - and less hypocritically.

The Sean Hannity feud with Jimmy Kimmel then imploded as the two went back and forth during a series of tweets on April 6. He also called the comedian "perverted", "a racist bigot", "a self-righteous, sanctimonious social justice warrior" and "Harvey Weinstein Jr." on the program or on Twitter earlier in the day. Jimmy, you're a despicable disgrace.

"Poor @jimmykimmel aka Harvey Weinstein Jr., you just can't get your head out of the gutter". Asking 18 year old girls to grab his crotch and "put their mouth on it". How would you feel if that was your daughter? In one clip, Kimmel asked women on the street to guess what was in his trousers and made suggestive comments. "I bet @Disney is so proud", he wrote. "Hannity apparently took issue with a joke I made on this show Monday night".

"Hannity escalated the drama between political pundit and late night personality by slamming Kimmel as "Harvey Weinstein junior" and creating the hashtag "#PervertKimmel" on Twitter Friday afternoon.

"When your clown makeup rubs off on Trump's ass, does it make his butt look like a Creamsicle?"
