The man CNN once referred to as America’s conscience apparently feels it’s okay to ridicule immigrants.
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel mocked First Lady Melania Trump’s accent in a recent monologue, and Fox News host Sean Hannity responded by calling him a “despicable disgrace.”
Kimmel did his usual shtick which included a video of the President and Melania joined by Stormy Daniels in a photoshopped clip. He then ‘thanked’ Mrs. Trump for organizing the White House Easter Egg Roll before joking, “Not a chance she did one thing to help set that up.”
“There’s no — she didn’t dye eggs, she didn’t fill baskets,” Kimmel added. “The only thing she’s been working on is an escape tunnel.”
Kimmel then played a clip of Mrs. Trump reading a story to children at the event.
“Never stop exploring, ’cause life would be boring,” she read. “Be clever and be curious just like a cat. Ask lots of questions about this and that.”
Kimmel immediately mocked the pronunciation of her words, doing a fake European accent saying “Like dis and dat.”
He would go on to mock her accent again.
“Hey, I love that Vice President Pence just released the children’s book about a bunny,” Kimmel joked. “Did they read that to the kids? Nope, they went with ‘dis and dat’ instead.”

Several conservatives expressed outrage that the late-night host was able to mock a successful immigrant woman like Melania Trump without so much as a murmur from liberals in Hollywood or prominent Democrats.

Fox News host Sean Hannity laid into Kimmel for being a “despicable disgrace.”
“Jimmy, you’re a despicable disgrace,” he said adding that liberals like Kimmel are too “arrogant and too obsessed with hating Donald Trump.”
Of course, there isn’t going to be any outrage from Kimmel’s friends in Hollywood. They’re perfectly content with mocking a strong, powerful woman like Melania Trump.
For instance, Lib comedian Chelsea Handler, shortly after President Trump’s inauguration, mocked Melania for ‘barely speaking English.
@Darren32895836 I will take Melania's accent ANY DAY over Chelsea Handler's foul mouth. Melania has class/grace/speaks 5 language

Kimmel is mocking a woman vastly more intelligent than himself.
Aside from speaking English and Slovenian, Mrs. Trump is fluent in German, French and Serbian.
Kimme isn’t even fluent in comedy.
Stand with Melania Trump by sharing this post!
