Sean Hannity blasted late-night comedian Jimmy Kimmel for mocking First Lady Melania Trump’s Slovenian accent and questioning her role in the White House Easter Egg Roll. Kimmel played video of President Donald Trump thanking Melania for organizing the annual event. “Not a chance she did one thing to set that up,” Kimmel said. “She didn’t dye eggs.” Kimmel said Mrs. Trump was instead working on an “escape tunnel” from her husband. Mrs. Trump also read a children’s book to the kids at the White House. “Never stop exploring, ’cause life would be boring. Be clever and be curious just like a cat. Ask lots of questions about this and that,” she read. “Like dis and dat,” Kimmel said, impersonating an Eastern European accent.
“Jimmy, you’re a despicable disgrace,” Hannity said in reaction to the barbs. Hannity said Kimmel and the editors at New York magazine, which depicted the president as a pig, are too “arrogant and too obsessed with hating Donald Trump.” Kimmel also said that his show’s sidekick, Guillermo Rodriguez, could now qualify to be “first lady of the United States” – in apparent reference to the man also having an accent.
