Jimmy Kimmel, late night talk show host, and Sean Hannity, conservative media personality, have some pretty strong disagreements when it comes to politics, but what began as harsh feelings over policy spilled over into some pretty personal attacks on Twitter this April 6, 2018.


Hannity started the fight by criticizing a recent clip of Jimmy Kimmel imitating Melania Trump's accent.

Hannity promised he would return with another bomb-shell very soon, ominously warning Disney (who owns ABC) "tick tock."

The Fox News host also began calling Kimmel "Harvey Weinstein Jr," referencing the Hollywood mogul who sexually abused countless women against their will.

Kimmel wasn't too worried.

In fact, Kimmel responded to Hannity's attacks on his show later that night.

When Hannity saw the segment, he prepared himself for battle.

And he didn't wait long to go on the attack, claiming the comedian was racist and a sexual deviant.

Kimmel responded in kind, saying Hannity was comparing consensual comedy to sexual molestation for his own gain.

Hannity doubled down on his attack, repeating the insult "Harvey Weinstein Jr."

Kimmel responded with pure snark.

This back and forth continued similarly for a while.

Kimmel finally brought the fight back to Hannity.

But this time, Hannity didn't swing back.

In some ways, Twitter believed Kimmel had the upper hand philosophically.

Then again, it's never cool to mock someone's accent.

In the meantime, everyone on Twitter is just enjoying the ride.

Well, most people.

Disciplining children in a way that will make them reflect on their behavior without taking it too far is definitely a difficult line to walk. Some parents have apparently had to get rather creative to get the point across.

It's next to impossible to get through life without regrets. Whether it was a missed opportunity to ask someone out or missing a chance to say goodbye to a loved one before they walked on, missed opportunities are part of life.

We sometimes regret decisions and life choices too, but the missed opportunities always seem to hit the hardest when we look back on them.

Accusations of sexual harassment are serious things, and not tools for manipulating a game, but two Survivor contestants ignored that to make the game go their way.

Elizabeth Beisel and Missy Byrd voiced concerns over touching by another contestant, Dan Spilo, which now appear to have been either greatly exaggerated or completely made up to manipulate other players.

We all need a pick-me-up now and then. The news can be depressing and so many of us are used to hearing nothing but messages of gloom and doom from the moment we step outside.

Parents are everything, well good parents, parents who are destined to be parents. Some people really shouldn't be parents. That's for another time to discuss. When we are all born our parental units have such high hopes and plans.... and more often then not, the spawn will choose the adverse path. When you're children choose the adverse path, it has to be harrowing, but, a true parent finds a way, even with disappointment. But that doesn't mean you can't chat about it.

So flying can be a handful and a half. We can't travel with anything but our knickers anymore, well that is what it feels like. Sometimes we forget what we've packed, especially if we've packed in a hurry. It feels like the simplest of necessities is now a HUGE no-no. So once and awhile we're flagged with a thing or two that could raise a few eyebrows. (For no good reason!)
