Sean Hannity isn't just feuding with Glenn Beck, apparently. Twitter was in awe Wednesday when the Fox News host slammed fellow host Megyn Kelly with "what he might consider the worst insult imaginable," per USA Today: He accused her of "clearly" supporting Hillary Clinton. Earlier Wednesday on The Kelly File, Kelly had criticized Donald Trump for avoiding tough interviews. "Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10pm, will go on Hannity, and pretty much only Hannity, and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days," Kelly said. However, she also made the exact same criticism of Clinton.

Citing the Democrat's appearance on Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday, Kelly said Clinton ensures "she is not in a place where she feels uncomfortable or anything unexpected could come at her." It isn't clear if Hannity saw the whole Kelly segment. In what Mediaite calls "Christmas Day for Media Twitter," several journalists freaked out. "Whoa. Did Hannity really tweet this?" tweeted CNN's Brian Stelter. "Fox News seems like a healthy, functional place these days," said David A. Graham of the Atlantic, while Keith Olbermann added, "Thanks for the entertainment @seanhannity #PassPopcorn." Kelly has yet to respond. (More Megyn Kelly stories.)
