It's no secret that rival cable news hosts don't often see eye to eye. In the aftermath of the presidential election, those working at Fox News who typically support President Donald Trump have gotten into heated exchanges with those working at the more liberal MSNBC.

Trump clash

When Donald Trump first made his candidacy for president official nearly two years ago, most people in the mainstream news media thought of it as a joke, and nothing more than a publicity stunt. However, as time moved on, the former host of "The Apprentice" picked up steam and rode his momentum to the Republican National Convention where he was named the party's nominee for president.

During that time, the majority of the hosts on Fox News supported Trump, with Sean Hannity being one of the most vocal in favor of the billionaire real estate mogul. Over on MSNBC, Trump was considered enemy number one, with the exception of the crew on "Morning Joe," where co-host Joe Scarborough is a former Republican member of Congress. Despite this, Trump eventually fell out of favor with the conservative Scarborough as his policies and rhetoric became too extreme from the ex-congressman from Florida. Since then, Scarborough and Hannity have lashed out at each other on the air and on social media, as the two have created a feud with the root cause being the support and opposition to the president. After Scarborough accused Hannity of taking the side of Russia and President Vladimir Putin over the recent strike in Syria, the Fox News host fired back on Twitter on April 13.

During Thursday morning's edition of "Morning Joe" on MSNBC, Joe Scarborough noted that Vladimir Putin was no longer pleased with the "unpredictable" Donald Trump, most notably because of his decision to retaliate to Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons attack with a missile strike of his own. Putin, who reportedly hacked the 2016 presidential election to help Trump get elected, is now allegedly pushing back at the White House for attacking their ally in Syria. "How fascinating that Vladimir Putin, if he thought he was going to influence politics in America, it hasn’t turned out that way," Scarborough said. "He’s got Ann Coulter on his side, so he’s got that," Scarborough said, before later adding, "Oh wait and Sean Hannity, he’s got Sean Hannity on his side."

Hannity's rebuttal

In response to the allegations made by Joe Scarborough, Sean Hannity was quick to fire back at the MSNBC host on Twitter. "No Joe, I am on Americas side," Hannity tweeted out, before rhetorically asking, "How can someone so wrong so often with such a tiny audience keep his job?" Not stopping there, Hannity then added "Liberal Joe try research!" before concluding with the hashtag "#Fakenews."
