Jimmy Kimmel Fires Back After Sean Hannity Calls Him an 'Assclown'

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel launched a broadside at Sean Hannity on Thursday night after the Fox News personality attacked him as an “assclown.”

Hannity became incensed with the ABC host for making fun of first lady Melania Trump’s appearance at the White House Easter Egg Roll, saying the comedian was a “despicable disgrace” and an “assclown.”

Kimmel used his opening monologue to fire back.

“What even is an ‘assclown'?” the late-night comedian asked with a smirk. “Is it an ass that’s a clown, or is it a clown that actually lives in an ass? More importantly, why is Sean Hannity openly fantasizing about clowns in the ass? Is that your thing at night when you have your pants down? At 2 a.m., you’ve got your laptop open to Breitbart, you sneak down to your den to hump a pillow from the Ivanka Trump collection, quietly so your wife doesn’t wake up and force you to go to church?”

“This is the guy who defended the multiply-alleged pedophile Roy Moore, and I’m a despicable disgrace. I’m the assclown!” Kimmel added. “If I’m an assclown, and I might very well be, you, Sean, are the whole ass circus here.”
