Fox News hosts Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham couldn’t resit a bit of trolling on their show’s respective Wednesday evening broadcast. As Hannity prepared to hand off the baton to his colleague, he asked Ingraham her thoughts on the recent viral clip of Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski getting flirty on “Morning Joe.”
The moment was first reported by TheWrap.
Ingraham couldn’t resist an opportunity for some Mean Girls mockery.
“What, what Sean, you’re always right. No you’re always right. You. Are. Always. Right. I mean, really,” she said twirling her hair and doing her best faux Brzezinski impression.
“Donald Trump is scary. He’s a scary man. I just can’t. I just can’t. I can’t. I can’t,” she continued. “Joe, I love the way you play the guitar. I love the way you sing in one key, me me me me, it’s so beautiful.”
The skit seemed a bit rehearsed, with Ingraham swaying and going into Mika mode even before Hannity asked her about their network rivals.
The whole thing started on Tuesday after Scarborough decided to get flirty with his co-host and future wife on set.

“We just crossed a line,” said Scarborough as he moved to hold Brzezinski’s arm. “We haven’t really done that since we’ve been engaged. Everyone has seen your grandparents kissing and we understand that we’re old people. Nobody wants to see that.”
“Oh God, don’t do that. No, that’s a no. That’s a no. Oh my God,” Brzezinski squeaked on air.
The moment, which stopped just short of eskimo kissing, closely reflected a popular parody of the couple often portrayed by “Saturday Night Live” — whose parent company NBC, also owns “Morning Joe.”
