- Jimmy Kimmel mocked Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday night over the revelation that Hannity was President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client.
- Kimmel and Hannity were embroiled in a Twitter feud earlier, in which Kimmel attacked Hannity’s support of Trump and Hannity called Kimmel “Harvey Weinstein Jr.”
- Hannity denied on Twitter that Cohen has represented him, and Kimmel picked apart Hannity’s tweet in his monologue.
Jimmy Kimmel took aim at Sean Hannity on Monday night over the federal court revelation that the Fox News host was President Trump’s lawyer Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client.
Kimmel’s monologue on Monday represents the latest in a series of barbs between Kimmel and Hannity, who were embroiled in a Twitter feud earlier this month.
That feud included Hannity calling Kimmel a racist, pervert, and “Harvey Weinstein Jr.,” while Kimmel ultimately drew criticism and apologised for making what many saw as a homophobic joke about Hannity’s apparent love for Trump.
But on Monday’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” Kimmel again seized the opportunity to mock Hannity for his connection to Cohen.
“Shockingly, turned out to be my pal Sean Hannity,” Kimmel said of Cohen’s third client. “Isn’t that interesting, that he would need advice from Michael Cohen.”
Hannity denied on Twitter that Cohen has represented him.
“I never retained him, received an invoice, or paid legal fees. I have occasionally had brief discussions with him about legal questions about which I wanted his input and perspective,” Hannity tweeted on Monday. “I assumed those conversations were confidential, but to be absolutely clear they never involved any matter between me and a third-party.”
“Apparently he works for free,” Kimmel said of Cohen. He added, “What kind of legal advice doesn’t involve a third party, unless maybe Sean Hannity was thinking about suing himself?”
“If this is the biggest witch hunt in history, we’re running out of spots on the broomstick,” Kimmel said.
