The feud between Fox News host Sean Hannity and Morning Joe co-host Joe Scarborough is still going strong. Tensions spiked Monday morning after Scarborough blasted "a TV show" for its recent interview with Donald Trump Jr., which elicited incomplete answers about Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russia lawyer. Scarborough deemed the show — which was very obviously Hannity's — "state-run television."

Hannity fired back with a series of tweets skewering "Liberal Joe." Hannity suggested the only reason that Scarborough recently announced he's leaving the Republican Party is because he "had to become an MSNBC liberal to keep his job" and claimed that Scarborough had previously "begged" former Fox News executives Bill Shine and Roger Ailes for a job.

Hannity, borrowing a line from President Trump, also deemed Morning Joe "low-rated establishment TV." Becca Stanek

Back in December, Vanity Fair published a not-so-nice review of President-elect Donald Trump's steakhouse, Trump Grill. Shortly thereafter, the president-elect took up arms on Twitter, calling out the "really poor numbers" of the magazine. "Way down, big trouble, dead!" he wrote. It was the most recent spat in a long history between Vanity Fair and Trump, who called the magazine out via tweet as early as 2011.

Vanity Fair, far from backing down on its biting criticisms of Trump Grill, decided to wear its scarlet letter proudly, proclaiming on its homepage to be "the magazine Trump doesn't want you to read." It was a clever response — but not the final blow.

With its latest issue, Vanity Fair called attention to Trump's latest criticism again by printing the tweet in full proudly on its cover, right near Chris Pratt's chiseled right pectoral muscle. Trump has yet to respond — via Twitter or otherwise.
