Hannity Loses It After ‘A**hole’ WSJ Editor Calls Him ‘Dumbest’ Fox Anchor

If you hit Sean Hannity on social media, he’s going to hit back hard.

The conservative talking head went on a late-night Twitter rampage on Thursday after Wall Street Journal editor Bret Stephens called him “Fox News’ dumbest anchor.”

Stephens kicked it off by tweeting about Hannity’s anti-GOP establishment rant earlier this week:

The talk radio host did not take kindly to the remark from the “Wsj genius”:

He also said Stephens is among the “assholes” he will hold responsible if Hillary Clinton wins the White House.

Hannity later claimed he was definitely not mad, tweeting that he fired off the missive after one beer at a Yankees game and that he had fun “mixing it up.”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
