Sean Hannity And Ex-Breitbart Reporter Trade Barbs: Some ‘Friend’ You Are!

April 5, 2016 8:46 a.m.

Et tu, Hannity?

Former Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields slammed Fox News host Sean Hannity Monday evening for not calling out Republican frontrunner Donald Trump’s “lies” about allegations that his campaign manager manhandled her at a campaign event.

In an interview with Hannity, Trump again floated the idea of filing charges against Fields after his campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was charged with battery for allegedly roughing up Fields in Florida.

“She grabbed me!” Trump said. “Maybe I should file charges against her for grabbing me.”

Fields responded on Twitter to say the presidential frontrunner “continues to lie and lie and lie.”

She also called out Hannity for not pressing Trump harder on the show.

Hannity, never one to let a Twitter barb go unanswered, responded that he wrote Fields “privately” and watched video of the incident 150 times.

But Fields, who has for years regularly appeared on Fox News shows, wasn’t having it.

The Fox News host responded he just doesn’t think footage that appears to show Lewandowski grabbing Fields supports her claims.

Fields tweeted again Tuesday morning to accuse Hannity of having a pro-Trump bias.
