After Politico reporter Marc Caputo tweeted quotes from an anonymous Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) staffer calling Fox News’ Sean Hannity a “fucking asshole,” the consevative pundit took to Twitter to hurl insults at the journalist.

Caputo tweeted Wednesday that Hannity is “a new enemy” for “Rubio World,” and quoted an unnamed Rubio staffer calling the Fox News host a “fucking asshole,” a “pussy,” and a “sellout.” He remarked “boy, they’re angry” with the quote.

Hannity didn’t take the news well and started out by slamming Rubio as a GOP establishment “pawn.”

The Fox News talking head also jabbed Caputo for his “big words” and “typical lib media” reporting.

Then Hannity went in for the kill shot: a whole bunch of people listen to his radio show.

But Caputo dished it back, tagging Hannity in a reply calling him “a real man,” correcting his grammar, and mocking Hannity’s enthusiasm for mixed martial arts.

While legions of conservatives trolls were loosed on Caputo from the exchange, other users pointed out that he was, in fact, quoting a source, not editorializing.
