Wall Street Journal editor Bret Stephens and Sean Hannity traded insults on Twitter this week.

It all started when Stephens tweeted out a Yahoo article titled, “Hannity to GOP leaders: ‘I’m getting a little sick and tired of all of you,’” captioning the tweet, “Fox News’ dumbest anchor had a message for y’all.”

Hannity responded with a series of tweets including, “If Hillary wins I will hold a–holes like you accountable. You will be responsible for her Supreme ct [sic] selections.”

Hannity recently finished July with the third-most watched show among all of cable news, behind only colleagues Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly. The conservative Donald Trump supporter also tweeted, “It’s arrogant, elitist, enablers like you that never hold R’s accountable that created the opening for Trump!!”

“Where were you when R party refused to use the power of the purse to defund Obamacare?” Hannity asked in another tweet. The “Hannity” host also wrote, “Wsj genius. Where were u when Boehner punted on the power of the purse a [sic] added nearly 5 trillion in new debt?”

Stephens responded by posting a clip from the movie, “A Fish Called Wanda” in which he compared Hannity to the character Otto.
