Will the hatchet be buried between two informants who fight publicly without losing sight of their qualifications? The soooo surprising answer: stay tuned
Fox News host Sean Hannity, one of President Trump's biggest supporters, and comedian Jimmy Kimmel, who has become a prominent critic of Trump, had participated in a fight on their respective television shows and social networks, and Hannity on Monday night had promised to respond to Kimmel's attempt to stamp out the meat.
But in the manner of cable news, the conservative host that. In his show on Monday, Hannity kept the suspense. First, I had to respond to the news on Monday afternoon that FBI agents had raided the home and the office of Trump's personal lawyer. "Everything we warn you now is coming to fruition," Hannity darkly warned the onlookers. After segments in the "witch hunt" and give free rein to Trump's former rival Hillary Clinton (also, Syria!), Finally released his verdict at the close of his show.
In her final monologue, Hannity reluctantly accepted but invited Kimmel to her show for a more complete debate, as Kimmel took over the administration's positions in health care and immigration.
"It's over," Hannity declared of her week-long fight. But, in a true spirit of tuning in more, he swore that the drama could continue. "If you start again," he said. "I will hit even harder."

(Or does Trump prefer you in the background?)," He wrote. Kimmel "Either way, keep your chin up, NO."
Kimmel finally apologized and tried to stifle the drama, calling the heated exchange "harmful to our country." He apologized to the gay community and although he played his initial joke about Melania Trump's accent as a "foolish and innocuous side," he said in a statement that "Ms. Trump is almost certain to have enough to worry about without being used as support to increase television ratings.
