MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough had the audacity to criticize Sean Hannity for siding with Julian Assange over the United States intelligence community. Hannity’s Twitter temper tantrum could have been written by Donald Trump. Hannity even made up a nickname for Scarborough.
On Morning Joe today, Scarborough blasted Republicans for their “stupid” support of former “enemy number one,” Assange. He added, “And now they’re sitting there, like Sean Hannity is – there’s a bromance there. It’s repulsive.”
As usual, Hannity could not take a tenth of the kind of criticism he loves to dish out. He tweeted not once, not twice but eight times. All in the space of 20 minutes. The Washington Post’s Collum Borchers caught the tirade:
Joe, Is it a betrayal and repulsive that you keep asking Fox to hire you without telling your current employer? https://t.co/jQ6FEjH8gJ— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) January 6, 2017
Joe, you say you are a "real conservative"! Was NBC's coverage of the election last year "repulsive" to you? Are you proud of MSNBC? https://t.co/jQ6FEjH8gJ— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) January 6, 2017
The only thing that is really "repulsive" is you calling yourself a "conservative". You are the poster child for "establishment". https://t.co/jQ6FEjH8gJ— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) January 6, 2017
Ok enough for now "Repulsive Joe". I have my radio show to do. How is your radio show doing? https://t.co/jQ6FEjH8gJ— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) January 6, 2017
As Borchers noted, it’s a bit ironic for Hannity to be suggesting that Scarborough is dying to move to Fox News considering that two of Fox’s biggest names, Megyn Kelly and Greta Van Susteren, just decided to move to NBC.
Watch the Morning Joe comments that set off Hannity below, from the January 6, 2017 Morning Joe.
Now that Assange helped raise Orange Hitler into power, The Donald wants to kiss him on the lips.
How hard would it be to find Hannity rages against Putin and Russia until they hacked Potesta and crippled Clinton’s campaign? Suddenly he wants to join Trump in planting hickeys on Putin’s ass.
Welcome to the Year of the Bully!
Joe Scarborough is right, it is a complete betrayal of whatever ethics the GOP claims to have left to jump in bed with Assange.
Pretty soon Hannity will work in ‘sad’ as a sentence on Twitter and start referring to himself in the third person. Nutty see, nutty do.
