Fox News host Sean Hannity loves to make fun of and criticize anyone he disagrees with politically, but he’s so incredibly thin-skinned that he can’t stand it when anyone dares to make fun of him or call him out for being a biased, right-wing stooge.
On his show Monday evening, Hannity whined about remarks Kimmel made about his interview last week with Caitlyn Jenner, Yahoo notes:
“The Fox News host took exception to Kimmel slamming Caitlyn Jenner last week for comments she made about homelessness in an interview with Hannity. Sitting in her Malibu airplane hangar last Wednesday, Jenner told Hannity about a conversation she had with a fellow private plane owner who was leaving California because of the homeless problem. The comments were widely criticized, including on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
“Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole?” Kimmel asked on Thursday night’s show. “Or does calling that trans person an ignorant a-hole, even though she happens to be a trans person, show that we don’t discriminate against ignorant a-holes no matter their gender orientation?”
That’s an honest and fair criticism of Jenner, and you have to wonder why exactly Hannity was so upset by it. But he was, and he began whining in response:
“Jimmy, what is with all the anger and all the cheap shots?” Hannity fired back. “Yeah, in case you haven’t noticed, homeless people are all over your state. And by the way, don’t you have anything better to do? Maybe actually trying to be funny or boost your dismal ratings?”
A few minutes later, the Fox host added:
“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.”
What Hannity seems to forget is that Jimmy Kimmel is a professional comedian. He can cut Sean down with a smile on his face. If Sean thinks this is going to end well for him, he’s sadly mistaken.
