After Sean Hannity took to Fox News to mock Jimmy Kimmel by calling him an ass clown, Kimmel brutally fired back on last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Jimmy Kimmel had an interesting day yesterday. In the morning, he woke up to discover he was in an apparent feud with Sean Hannity of Fox News. Namely, Hannity went on TV to call Kimmel a “despicable disgrace” for joking about Melania Trump on Monday night’s show. Additionally, Hannity would claim that Kimmel is an “ass clown.”

Kimmel couldn’t help but laugh at the insults, noting where they were coming from. To start with, he is amused by the hypocrisy. “This is the guy who defended the multiply-alleged pedophile Roy Moore,” Kimmel points out, “and I’m a despicable disgrace?!”

As for the “ass clown” comment, Kimmel isn’t even sure how to take it. It only makes him question why Hannity is so obsessed with the idea of clowns and asses. But, if Kimmel is the ass clown, then he says that Hannity is “the whole ass circus.” The studio audience couldn’t have agreed any more. “You are the Ringling Brothers and the Barnum and Baily of ass-clown-manship,” the funnyman adds.

Needless to say, Kimmel wasn’t going to take Hannity’s comments lightly, and wound up hitting him back twice as hard. You can watch the full bit in the YouTube video below.
