Late night host Jimmy Kimmel launched a broadside at Sean Hannity on Thursday night after the Fox News personality attacked him as an “assclown.”
Hannity became incensed with the ABC host for making fun of first lady Melania Trump’s appearance at the White House Easter Egg Roll, saying the comedian was “despicable disgrace” and an “assclown.”
Kimmel used his opening monologue to fire back.
“What even is an ‘assclown?’” the late night comedian smirked. “Is it an ass that’s a clown or is it a clown that actually lives in an ass. More importantly, why is Sean Hannity openly fantasizing about clowns in the ass? Is that your thing at night when you have your pants down? At 2 a.m., you’ve got your laptop open to Breitbart, you sneak down to your den to hump a pillow from the Ivanka Trump collection, quietly so your wife doesn’t wake up and force you to go to church?”
“This is the guy who defended the multiply-alleged pedophile Roy Moore and I’m a despicable disgrace. I’m the assclown!” Kimmel added. “If I’m an assclown, and I might very well be, you Sean are the whole ass circus here.”

Georgia GOP secretary of state: Trump ‘threw my family under the bus’ even though we voted for him
Brad Raffensperger, the Republican secretary of state in Georgia, has written an angry editorial for USA Today in which he details the harassment he and his family have been subjected to because he followed the law and certified President-elect Joe Biden's victory.
Raffensperger starts out his editorial by praising the Peach State for holding a free and fair election under difficult circumstances stemming from the novel coronavirus pandemic.
‘The election wasn’t stolen — he blew it’: Michigan Republican says Trump ‘did everything possible to lose’
President Donald Trump insists the election was stolen from him in Michigan, but Republicans there haven't been willing to indulge his fantasy.
The president has zeroed in on the state, which he narrowly won in 2016, in his effort to overturn his election loss to Joe Biden by claiming widespread fraud and pressuring legislators to overrule the will of the voters, but few Republicans are buying in, reported Politico.
“We must not attempt to exercise power we simply don’t have,” said Aaron Van Langevelde, who sits on Michigan’s board of state canvassers, which was statutorily obligated to certify the election win by Joe Biden. “As John Adams once said, 'We are a government of laws, not men.' This board needs to adhere to that principle here today. This board must do its part to uphold the rule of law and comply with our legal duty to certify this election.”
‘Dangerous’: Mitch McConnell just engineered a lifetime judgeship for an ‘unqualified’ 33-year-old
On Wednesday, The Daily Beast examined the "dangerous" record of 33-year-old Kathryn Kimball Mizelle, one of the final judicial nominees to be forced through by Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans — and her complete lack of qualifications for the job, beyond her high-powered conservative connections.
"One of five judicial nominees waved through by the lame duck Senate in a final vote before lawmakers left town for Thanksgiving, Mizelle’s confirmation is the most galling," wrote Eleanor Clift. "Mizelle is only eight years out of law school (University of Florida), and the ABA’s standard for a lifetime seat is 12 years of legal experience. She has had four distinguished clerkships, including one for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, but her only trial experience is as an intern before she graduated from law school. She will take her seat on the Eleventh Circuit for the Middle District of Florida having never tried a case — civil or criminal — as a lead attorney or co-counsel."
