Fox News host Sean Hannity is lashing out at his colleague Megyn Kelly after she accused Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of avoiding interviews with her. Hannity says she “clearly” supports Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton over Trump.
Hannity, who is open about his support for Trump, was responding to a claim made by Kelly that both Trump and Clinton were avoiding interviews with her because she would put them out of their comfort zone.
“Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10:00, will go on Hannity and pretty much only Hannity and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days, which doesn’t exactly expand the tent,” Kelly said.

Hannity responded by saying that Kelly should be mad at Hillary Clinton, and not Trump, adding that Kelly was “clearly” a supporter of Clinton. He added that Trump has previously done interviews with Kelly.
He was later criticized by a Twitter user who said that Hannity should learn to stand by his colleagues, to which he replied, “Sure. When they stand by me.”
Trump and Kelly have a documented history of conflict, after he previously referred to her as a “bimbo” and “lightweight reporter,” after their clash on comments he made about women during a Republican primary debate.
