No Fox News personality has been more sycophantic to Donald Trump than Sean Hannity — and even his colleagues are starting to mock him for it.
Megyn Kelly on Wednesday evening made fun of Trump for hiding from most journalists and keeping away from “unsafe spaces” in the media. Specifically, she said that Trump has been mostly restricting himself to appearing on Hannity’s program, where he knows he’ll only get lobbed the fluffiest softball questions.
“Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10:00, will go on Hannity and pretty much only Hannity and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days,” Kelly said.
Hannity got extremely upset by Kelly’s comments and immediately shot back at her on Twitter by accusing her of being a Hillary Clinton supporter.

The reaction of many of Hannity’s Twitter followers was to point and laugh at him, however:
wow sean. you are a chode.

Such a tough guy, Sean! Did you type this while on your knees in front of Trump?

It's a good thing you work in the conservative safe space of FOX News because you'd be laughed out of any other newsy org.

At any rate, it seems as though Hannity already has one foot out the door at Fox, and is now angling for a job at the upcoming Trump TV network.
