Over the last two years, the tension in American politics has reached an all-time high. For Fox News host Sean Hannity, it appears as it's a daily battle with his critics that doesn't look to be ending anytime soon.

Hannity on Twitter

It all started when Donald Trump stood on the floor of Trump Tower in New York City back in June 2015. Causing a media frenzy in the process, the former host of "The Apprentice" announced that he was running for president and changed the landscape of Washington while doing so.

In the months that would follow, Trump was able to carve out his niche with his supporters, while dealing with a daily onslaught of criticism from those who opposed his agenda and controversial rhetoric. Despite being viewed as a joke at first, the billionaire real estate mogul was able to pull off upset wins in the GOP primary and the general election on his way to being sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.

Though most of the press pushed back, Trump was able to find strong support within the conservative media, with Sean Hannity becoming one of his biggest fans and advocates. However, Hannity has recently taken his support of Trump to a new level, earning him backlash that grows daily. As seen in a series of tweets on June 27, the Fox News host is not happy with his critics, and even want as far as threatening a potential lawsuit against CNN.

Taking to his Twitter feed on June 27, Sean Hannity responded to several critics, including CNN reporter Nathan McDermott, who accused him of focusing too much on the debunked conspiracy theory of Seth Rich.

"Either you are a liar or totally ignorant," Hannity wrote back to McDermott, before adding, "By ignoring the truth I may sue both you and @CNN for libel." Not stopping there, Hannity went on to issue a warning to McDermott, tweeting, "If I was u I would delete, retract and apologize."

During the same tweetstorm, Buzzfeed's Jon Passantino wrote back to Sean Hannity, using a quote from the Seth Rich family to stop pushing the "conspiracy" surrounding his death.

"U have no idea what I know, what I am investigating and what my intentions are," Hannity wrote back, while adding, "Go look, the family asked for help in finding the truth."
