Jimmy Kimmel on Sunday (April 8) said he wanted the feud between himself and Sean Hannity to end. He also apologized for a joke about the First Lady, of which some, including the Fox News host, took offense.
The late night host said it was “fun” to exchange jabs with Hannity, but ultimately, it was doing more harm than good, calling the building animosity between the men and their fans “harmful to our country.”
The two went after one another after Kimmel last week mocked Melania Trump reading a children’s book to kids at the White House Easter Egg Hunt.
Calling his impression of the First Lady a “silly aside,” Kimmel said he was wrong to target her for a joke.
“Mrs. Trump almost certainly has enough to worry about without being used as a prop to increase TV ratings,” he wrote.
