Sean Hannity invites Jimmy Kimmel onto show to hash out differences — and makes ominous threat

Host Sean Hannity invited late-night show host Jimmy Kimmel to visit his Fox News show to hash out their differences and discuss partisan issues.

Hannity, however, warned that if Kimmel continues his anti-conservative rhetoric, he will have no choice but to highlight some of Kimmel's more cringeworthy career moments that don't paint America's "moral compass" in the most flattering light.

What's the history with these two, anyway?

Over the last week, Hannity lashed out at Kimmel for mocking first lady Melania Trump's accent.

The two went back and forth, trading Twitter barbs over a period of hours and hours until Kimmel finally gave up and apologized.

As a result of Kimmel's mocking of the first lady, a petition to boycott "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" ramped up and, at the time of this writing, has received over 200,000 signatures.

And what did Hannity say?

Calling a truce, Hannity acknowledged Kimmel's apology and invited the liberal entertainer to appear on his Fox News show.

"I read the apology carefully," Hannity said. "A couple of things are clear to me. On the surface, I will be honest. It seems to be more like a forced Disney apology directed to the LGBT community rather than Kimmel’s comments about the first lady. But honestly, that’s ultimately up to you to decide here. I believe everyone should accept apologies, that’s what my religion teaches me. I assume he is sincere."

Hannity went on to invite Kimmel to the show.

"You want to come on this show? I’ll promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight," Hannity said. "You want to have a serious discussion? We can talk about the president, policies, health care, comedy, political correctness, ending boycotts, how I supported Bill Maher, Howard Stern, Don Imus, Opie and Anthony, people that I disagree with vehemently."

"My bet is you will agree with me on a lot more issues than you think," he added, telling viewers that the feud is "over" with Kimmel.

"Jimmy, if you do want to start up again, I promise I will punch back even harder," Hannity warned. "My producer spent all weekend compiling a lot of your highlights, or lowlights, in your career. They don’t make you look too good. Instead of airing them, we will put them in storage, and we have more important pressing issues."

Kimmel has not responded to Hannity's invitation at the time of this writing.
