Bill Clark/CQPHO

Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) and Fox News host Sean Hannity got into a Twitter fight Tuesday night after Hannity reacted to the unflattering passages about him in Sasse’s new book, “Them: Why We Hate Each Other And How To Heal.”

Hannity started the spat, accusing Sasse of going “BERSERK” in a tweet.

Sasse retorted.

The senator then challenged Hannity to a debate.

Hannity went off, releasing a series of tweets accusing Sasse of being a “phony” who “sucked up” to him during the election, and who wanted Hillary Clinton to win the 2016 election.
