Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity are back at it after trading barbs on their respective TV shows and on Twitter Thursday night.
The next round of insults between the ABC late-night host and conservative Fox News opinion host exploded on Twitter Friday afternoon when Kimmel responded to one of Hannity's taunts about an old "Man Show" bit the comedian did where he asked women if size mattered while sporting a fake erection.
"Today's poll. So tonight will Jimmy Kimmel be 1- Asking 18 year old girls to touch his crotch. 2- Make fun of the First Lady reading books to children. 3- Be a racist asshole. 4- all of the above?" Hannity tweeted.
Kimmel fired back, "I vote for whichever one best helps you trivialize the horrors of Harvey Weinstein by comparing them to televised comedy bits in which every woman was a willing participant who gladly signed a release."
Hannity's Twitter rant against "#pervertkimmel" continued Friday morning when he announced his intent to respond to the comedian on his Fox show, "Hannity," and posted a picture of his diligent research: a printout of the Wikipedia entry for "The Man Show."
In case you're just clicking into this glorious Twitter beef, it was sparked after "Fox & Friends" called out the comedian for making a joke Monday night about Melania Trump's accent. Then Hannity jumped on the bandwagon, calling the joke "brutal" on his show, going as far as calling the ABC late-night host a "despicable disgrace" and an "ass clown" on the air.
While we're eagerly awaiting to see the smoking gun Hannity uncovered hiding in plain sight on the "Man Show" Wikipedia page, enjoy the rest of this man show below:

You are a bully attacking the First Lady of the USA. Attack me any time you want. Attack @realDonaldTrump anytime you want. Suck up to Obama all you want. Having 18 year old girls grab your crotch is creepy and perverted. How would you feel if it was your daughter Harvey Jr? https://t.co/uuddgKAZJl
Stop picking on woman that can't fightback Mr Harvey Weinstein jr. And maybe pledge not to ask 18 year old girls to touch your crotch and put their mouths on it like you did. Why don't You Be a grown up and simply apologize. https://t.co/WFP5GdJf25
And you kissed the ass of Obama and Hillary for years Mr Weinstein. Answer this question. Would you want a stranger asking your daughter to “grab their crotch, and put their mouths on it? Yes or no Harvey! https://t.co/fLk6hPpDbQ
The answer is yes. Every woman involved WILLINGLY participated - it's called a comedy bit. It's what you've been unwittingly doing for years. Now YOU answer THIS question. Would you want your daughter being “grabbed by the pussy”? Yes or no? https://t.co/T51yTnoyVc
Stop deflecting @jimmykimmel, locker room talk vs. your interactions with women asking them to touch it or put their mouths on it. Maybe you need a reminder, you can see it all tonight on #hannity at 9ET. #pervertkimmel
I was number one for all of Cable news in 2017 and the number one most watched show in the first Qtr of 2018. And both Hannity and @MaddowBlog kick your ass every night Mr Weinstein jr on ABC @Disney. And Fallon and Colbert also kick your ass. Perverts like you fail on TV. https://t.co/KP9SAXtNwV
