Fox News host Sean Hannity called an end to his feud with late night host Jimmy Kimmel Monday night, even extending an invitation to appear on his show for an hour-long political discussion.

Hannity said he drew "a line in the sand" after Kimmel made fun of First Lady Melania Trump's accent last week as she read to children during the White House Easter Egg Roll event. Hannity pushed back against Kimmel's comments and the pair traded barbs for several days.

Kimmel eventually posted a lengthy response Sunday on Twitter that called on both men to end their feuding.

Hannity addressed the back and forth near the end of his show Monday evening.

"I believe everyone should accept apologies, that's what my religion teaches me," said Hannity, who termed Kimmel's response as "more of a forced Disney corporate apology."

"I assume he is sincere. . . . I agree with Jimmy in this sense that it's time to move on."

Hannity went on to explain the spat between the two was less about them and more about what he called the constant attacks on President Donald Trump and his family.

"I'm not trying to be the thought police and I sure as heck never wanted political correctness," Hannity said.

"I want to extend an invitation. You want to come on this show, I promise no name calling, no anger, no rehashing of the Twitter fight. A serious discussion."
