Hannity Strikes Back at Scarborough: ‘Boring, Low-Rated’ Joe ‘Sold His Soul’ To Keep MSNBC Job

Fox News host Sean Hannity ripped into MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough on Twitter Monday after the latter called his show “state-run television,” saying Scarborough was “desperate for attention” and “sold his soul” to keep his job.

The two hosts have had an ongoing feud, Mediaite reports, with Hannity constantly deriding Scarborough’s commentary against President Donald Trump on his nightly Fox program. Scarborough has suggested Hannity has an “obsession” with “Morning Joe.”

After Scarborough likened Hannity’s program to propaganda TV Monday morning, Hannity tweeted that Scarborough was “boring low rated establishment TV” out to please “elites & Mika,” a reference to his co-host and fiancee Mika Brzezinski.

He also said Scarborough “sold his soul” to remain at MSNBC. Hannity said Greta Van Susteren, the former Fox host who joined MSNBC in January but was fired last month, “refused to change.”

Hannity also claimed Scarborough had “begged” Fox executives for a job while he was at NBC. In an apparent reference to NBC executives Phil Griffin and Andy Lack, he invited “Phil & Andy” to “call me for details.”

UPDATE: 11:41 A.M.: This article was updated with an additional tweet by Hannity claiming Scarborough begged for a job at Fox News.
