Fox News' Sean Hannity got in a bit of a Twitter spat with Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) on Thursday. Sasse responded to a negative tweet from Hannity, when Hannity called the senator "useless" and said that he regretted his prior support.
Sasse then gently replied by saying that he hadn't changed, but rather, Hannity had.
Sorry, Sean -- you changed, not me. Some of us still believe in the Constitution. No President should play with censoring news they dislike. https://t.co/ZBEMNSF7nz— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) October 12, 2017
To which Hannity did not take kindly to, firing off a series of tweets critizing Sasse for not accomplishing things in Washington, and also called him a "loser" for failing to repeal Obamacare. Sasse, for what it's worth, has consistently voted for various Obamacare repeal bills.
I’d never support censoring anybody!! I’ve stood up for freedom of speech/Constitution my entire life. You have accomplished NOTHING IN DC. https://t.co/H2T262MOxc— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) October 13, 2017
I mean first, this is not a good look for Hannity. He's a grown man, not a middle school student. Secondly, Sasse is one person in a legislative body of 100. He cannot single-handedly do anything, and to say he's done nothing is absurd. Name-calling is inappropriate.
