Late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel used his show Thursday to go off on a bizarre rant about Fox News host Sean Hannity and erections.
The tiff between Hannity and Kimmel arose after the prime-time Fox News anchor called the ABC host an “a** clown” for poking fun at first lady Melania Trump's accent, which was showcased when she read children's books during the White House's annual Easter Egg Roll on Monday.
That comment on Hannity's Fox News program resulted in Kimmel then launching into a bizarre tirade about the conservative talker's “erection.”
“Sean Hannity's problem is for eight years, while Obama was president, he was unable to get an erection. For eight years, not one erection," Kimmel joked. "And he tried everything. ... He tried looking at pictures of [House Speaker] Paul Ryan with his shirt off — didn't work.”
"[Hannity] went to office Christmas parties with [former Fox News host] Bill O'Reilly — nothing worked.
But now that Trump is president — here's the twist — Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection. He's had an erection since November of 2016. And it's driving him mad. He's lost his mind."
Kimmel, of course not done with the matter, went further. The comedian wondered aloud — on national television — why Hannity is “openly fantasizing about clowns in the ass.”
“Is that your thing at 2 a.m.?” Kimmel asked rhetorically. “You got your laptop open to Breitbart, you sneak into the 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.”
The back-and-forth ultimately landed on Twitter:

Kimmel, for his part, concluded his lengthy monologue by naming Hannity as “the whole ass circus.”
“You're the juggler, you're the trapeze artist, you are the ass lion tamer and the ass human cannonball all jammed into one little car,” he said. “You're the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey of ass clownsmanship.”
It looks like everyone is playing the name-calling game these days.
