Fox News host Bret Baier responded to the White House blocking CNN White House Correspondent Kaitlan Collins from an event by stating that Fox “stands firmly with CNN on this issue of access.” But, on Tuesday night, things escalated at Donald Trump’s ego-rally in a jaw-dropping display of hatred for the media as the crowd started chanting “CNN sucks!” while Jim Acosta tried to broadcast from the event. For his part, Acosta remained a gentleman and even reached out to the same people who were screaming at him with their middle fingers firmly displayed.
Here’s a screenshot of that event.

But, apparently, Sean Hannity didn’t get the memo about supporting CNN because he tweeted Acosta to call him ‘fake news.’
“Jimmy @Acosta sorry your precious feelings are hurt & that people see through your lying bullshit for what it is. FAKE NEWS. #CNNSUCKS,” Hannity tweeted.

Twitter users pounced.
Dumbelstiltskin, you been asleep, my man?
Cohen liked to tape the dumdums who called him. You’re one of those dumdums.
Prosecutors have those tapes.

Always a class act, Seanny. Your day in court will be coming soon. Remember to smile for your mug shot.

You are aware five journalists were gunned down in Annapolis, right? If anything happens to him or any other reporter it’s on you.

Sean Hannity is the Jerry Springer of Alex Jones’s.

Tough words from a talking potato.

Hannity is a propagandist for profit, peddling lies every night. He says he’s just a talk show host, not a journalist. But he’s injecting poison into the nation’s political bloodstream warping public attitudes about the press. I’m confident in the long run the truth will prevail.

Hey @seanhannity – stop playing whiffle ball with the WH’s hand picked guests and climb in the hardball box with some guests that might actually punch back. Taking shots at @cnn and @Acosta proves nothing. Let’s go big boy – time to prove you are not a …. #Basta https://t.co/1Xw42iyVDM

Sean Hannity, a man who circulates bizarre conspiracy theories, is the last person who should call anyone ‘fake news.’ Hannity’s day will come when Karma comes a knockin’ and it’s going to be so SWEET. Trump’s former longtime attorney, Michael Cohen, did tape phone conversations with his clients. Hannity was revealed to be one of Cohen’s three clients.
