However, Friday’s intense exchange is not the first time Jimmy Kimmel has made sexually perverse remarks. On Thursday, Kimmel also spent time talking about Sean Hannity’s supposed ability to get an erection:

Sean Hannity’s problem is that for eight years, while Obama was President, he was unable to get an erection. For eight years, not one erection. And he tried everything … he tried looking at pictures of Paul Ryan with his shirt off. Didn’t work.

Although, Kimmel didn’t stop there. He continued discussing Hannity’s supposed erections in the hereinafter statements:

[Hannity] went to office Christmas parties with Bill O’Reilly. Nothing worked. But now that Trump is President, here’s the twist, Sean Hannity is unable to have anything but an erection. He’s had an erection since November of 2016. And it’s driving him mad. He’s lost his mind.

Finally, Jimmy Kimmel has not yet issued an apology in light of widespread backlash.
