Fox News’ Sean Hannity got an earful from Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) on Tuesday night.

Before bringing Ellison on, Hannity showed clips of President Obama talking about budget sequestration, set to the famously apocalyptic "Carmina Burana."

Hannity said Obama was guilty of fearmongering when he talked about the potential effects of the March 1 spending cuts. Ellison saw things a little differently.

He OPENED by calling Hannity "the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen." Watch:

Keith Ellison SLAMS Hannity

Things did not get friendlier from there.


Ellison also called the Fox News host a "shill for the Republican party," an "immoral" man, and said he was violating "every journalistic ethic" in the book.

Hannity cut the interview short, saying it was a "waste of time" to continue. Many viewers defended Hannity, saying the Congressman was plain disrespectful.

Do you agree? Disagree?

Either way, this kind of thing is becoming all the more ordinary in this polarized political climate and may explain a lot about issues like the sequester cuts.
