the feud continues

Sean Hannity really hates Joe Scarborough

The feud between Fox News host Sean Hannity and Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough is still going strong. Tensions spiked Monday morning after Scarborough blasted "a TV show" for its recent interview with Donald Trump Jr., which elicited incomplete answers about Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russia lawyer. Scarborough deemed the show — which was very obviously Hannity's — "state-run television."

Hannity fired back with a series of tweets skewering "Liberal Joe." Hannity suggested the only reason that Scarborough recently announced he's leaving the Republican Party is because he "had to become an MSNBC liberal to keep his job" and claimed that Scarborough had previously "begged" former Fox News executives Bill Shine and Roger Ailes for a job.
