'He's a joke': Internet mocks Sean Hannity after he complains about Jimmy Kimmel's 'cheap shots'
Fox News' Sean Hannity is not a fan of Jimmy Kimmel's comedy segments mocking his primetime show.
On Monday, May 10, Hannity addressed the "cheap shots" he claims Kimmel has been taking at him as he criticized the late-night talk show host's broadcast and his ratings, reports The HuffPost.
"Jimmy, what is with all the anger and all the cheap shots?" Hannity asked 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."
Hannity went on to offer Kimmel a word of advice as he urged him not to discuss his show anymore. The Fox News host also suggested that he would retaliate if the mocking continues.
With a statement leveled toward Kimmel, Hannity said, "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."
He added, "I'd advise him not to talk about me anymore. That's my advice." According to Hannity, "late-night as we once knew it is dead."
However, Twitter users strongly disagree with Hannity's assessment of late-night television. In fact, since Kimmel appears to have ruffled Hannity's feathers, social media users are encouraging him to continue doing so.
On Twitter user tweeted, "Sean Hannity tells Jimmy Kimmel that he has 70% more total viewers and tells him not to talk about his show anymore. Why is Sean Hannity comparing a prime-time so-called 'news' show to a late-night comedy show. Is it because Sean actually knows he's a joke?"
