Jimmy Kimmel and Sean Hannity have been trading tweets back-and-forth all day, but this is the one that should leave a mark.
Here’s the late night comedian using being gay as a punchline, implying that’s he’s a “bottom” with President Donald Trump as the “top”:
Don't worry – just keep tweeting – you'll get back on top! (or does Trump prefer you on bottom?) Either way, keep your chin up big fella..XO https://t.co/R4QJCoGYCL

Kimmel is getting called out over it from both sides, but let’s see if anything really comes of it:
I swear to Beyonce if you straight people don’t STOP making things gay because you can’t find a way to be clever or original in any other way, we will impose sanctions and cease aide! https://t.co/8L9DX3hEE6

Every time a liberal wants to insult a Republican, they imply they are gay.

Going to risk ruining my mentions and saying this in all-caps for the cheap seats:
MAKING THIS KIND OF JOKE ABOUT A MAN HAVING ANAL SEX WITH ANOTHER MAN IS HOMOPHOBIC, AND NOT FUNNY. THE "LAUGH" COMES FROM THE IDEA THAT GAY SEX IS INHERENTLY SHAMEFUL, AND I'M NOT LAUGHING. https://t.co/LIkA5tktum

Sean Hannity did fire back with the same accusation, however:
