Sean Hannity Dredges Up Jimmy Kimmel Blackface Clip Amid Melania Trump–Fueled Feud

The feud between Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity shows no signs of letting up, with both TV hosts launching attacks through their shows and Twitter on Thursday and Friday. In the latest installment, Hannity resurfaced a clip from over a decade ago of Kimmel donning blackface as part of a skit for The Man Show.

Hannity tweeted the clip and tagged Disney, the parent company of ABC, which ultimately produces Jimmy Kimmel Live!. "Are you proud to employ Harvey Weinstein Jr? Are you proud of this?" the Fox News conservative commentator wrote.

In the clip, Kimmel is dressed as former NBA player Karl Malone and wears dark paint on his body and face. In an effort to make fun of Malone, Kimmel mocks the African-American Vernacular English dialect.

"Sometime in night, Karl Malone look up at sky and say, 'What da hell goin' on up there?'" Kimmel says in the controversial skit.

Hannity's "Harvey Weinstein Jr." taunt comes from another ill-advised clip from The Man Show, which aired on Comedy Central from 1999 to 2004. In that segment, Kimmel walks around asking women to feel his pants. Hannity has resurrected both in an effort to slam the late-night funnyman, who is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

Although the two have been embroiled in a rancorous feud for what seems like time immemorial, the latest beef comes after Kimmel roasted first lady Melania Trump's appearance at Monday's White House Easter Egg Roll. Following that rebuke, Hannity called the funnyman an "assclown."

Kimmel responded on his Thursday evening show, which presumably prompted Hannity to dredge up the unflattering videos of his nemesis.

"I was thinking about it this morning; is it an ass that's a clown or a clown that lives in an ass, like a little Bozo bird in your butt cheeks? I honestly don't know," Kimmel said. "And more importantly, why is Sean Hannity fantasizing about clowns in the ass? Is this your thing at night? At 2 a.m., you got your laptop open to Breitbart, you sneak to hump a pillow from the Ivanka Trump collection, quietly, so your wife doesn't wake up and make you go to church?"

Kimmel did not respond directly to the blackface video, but instead posed a question to the Fox News commentator shortly after it was posted.

When your clown makeup rubs off on Trump’s ass, does it make his butt look like a Creamsicle?

Hannity quickly responded, ensuring that the saga would continue.
