Late night host Jimmy Kimmel recently attacked First Lady Melania Trump, something that would never be tolerated during the Obama years. Sean Hannity came after Kimmel for it and they had a Twitter war that lasted almost all weekend.
Kimmel eventually offered a lame apology.
FOX News reports:
Jimmy Kimmel defends mean-spirited dig at Melania Trump, apologizes for lewd Hannity joke
After a heated back-and-forth between Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity, the late-night host released a statement Sunday apologizing for a lewd shot at Hannity seen as mocking the gay community — but Kimmel was unapologetic about his controversial on-air jokes at first lady Melania Trump’s expense.
Kimmel’s message called for an end to the ongoing feud, which started after he delivered jokes making fun of the first lady’s accent.
In Sunday’s note, Kimmel wrote:
“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. Mrs. Trump almost certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings.”
Here’s the apology:

Kimmel has become one of the worst night show hosts. His politics totally ruined his show.
