Fox News host Sean Hannity fired off a series of angry messages on Twitter late Thursday night after a Wall Street Journal editor described him as the network’s “dumbest anchor.”
Bret Stephens, the newspaper’s foreign affairs columnist and deputy editorial page editor, called out Hannity for saying he was “getting a little sick and tired” of Republican leaders who weren’t doing enough to support Donald Trump:
Stephens has been critical of the Republican presidential candidate and those who support him. Hannity, on the other hand, openly supports Trump and even told the candidate during an interview that he’ll vote for him in November.
Being called the network’s “dumbest anchor” didn’t sit well with Hannity. He shot back:
Twitter user Robert Stribley told Hannity he “has all the self-control on Twitter that Trump does.”
“I actually spend little time on Twitter,” replied Hannity, who has penned nearly 32,000 tweets over seven years. “But I have fun mixing it up.”
