‘You Are Obsessed’: New Shots Fired in Scarborough-Hannity Twitter War


For months now, Fox News’ Sean Hannity and MSNBC’s Joe Scarbrough have been engaged in an all-out war. The two just can’t quit sniping at each other on Twitter or on their respective cable news programs.

This morning, Hannity started another battle by launching a volley against Joe and his Morning Joe co-host — and fiancee — Mika Brzezinski. Highlighting a Mediaite post of a Morning Joe segment, Sean criticized the MSNBC hosts for having an “emotional meltdown” and teased that he’d have a “hilarious video montage” on his show tonight.

Well, Joe wasn’t going to let that go unanswered, and he unleashed a series of tweets where he repeatedly called Hannity “comrade” and accused the Fox News host of being obsessed with him.

As of publication, Hannity hadn’t responded to Scarborough’s latest salvo. Perhaps he’s just waiting to use tonight’s broadcast to return fire.

Last month, after Scarborough took issue with Hannity’s continued coverage of the Seth Rich conspiracy, calling it “gross and repulsive,” the Fox News commentator personally ripped Joe and Mika. In comments to Mediaite, he said the “only reason to watch their “low rated daily emotional breakdowns” was to see if they “hold hands under the desk.”

UPDATE 1:03 PM ET: And now Hannity has responded on Twitter.
