He apologized for using the jokes to insult Hannity, but also backhandedly wrote, “I am hopeful that Sean Hannity will learn from this too and continue his newly-found advocacy for women, immigrants, and First Ladies and that he will triumph in his heroic battle against sexual harassment and perversion.”

The feud began after Hannity had sharply criticized Kimmel for mocking First Lady Melania Trump’s accent last week. Hannity used several old skits of Kimmel from the “The Man Show” to accuse him of being creepy around women, even labelling the late night host “Harvey Weinstein Jr.”
