Fox News talking head Sean Hannity seemed to find himself rather angry with one of his fellow TV hosts when he effectively flipped out on Jimmy Kimmel, host and executive producer of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, last night, warning the late-night talk show host not to talk about his Fox show anymore.
Hannity, who frankly is known world-round for his incessant spewing of vitriol and hatred, actually had the audacity to accuse Kimmel of “spewing more hatred and more rage” after Kimmel dared to criticize Hannity’s ridiculous interview with Caitlyn Jenner, who’s apparently making a run for governor of California.
Several controversial statements came from Jenner during that interview, but one of the most notable was her disgusting comments about homeless people in the state.
“Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole?” Kimmel mused on a recent segment.

Apparently, this really ruffled Sean Hannity’s feathers.
“Jimmy, what is with all the anger and all the cheap shots?” the Fox host fumed on his prime time show. “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.”
“Jimmy, here’s my advice, don’t talk about my show anymore,” Hannity stated while playing clips of old controversial segments from Jimmy’s past that the host has since apologized for.
Hannity went on to seemingly threaten Kimmel, saying, “You talk about my show, I’ll hit you back 50 times harder.”
Hannity then passed the segment on to his fellow Fox News personality, Lara Ingraham, 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.”
Back in 2018, Hammity and Kimmel spent several days swapping insults on both Twitter and television after Hannity found himself vexed over a gag Kimmel made about then First Lady Melania Trump’s accent.
“I’d advise him not to talk about me anymore. That’s my advice,” Hannity spat, clearly fuming, before adding that “late night as we once knew it is dead.”
So far, Kimmel hasn’t responded to Hannity’s temper tantrum.
