If you watched the first debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, you may remember that toward the end of the night, Trump pointed one of the Flamin' Hot Cheetos that he calls fingers squarely at the mainstream press for allegedly treating him unfairly throughout his campaign.
Trump insisted that the only trustworthy pundit on television is Fox News' Sean Hannity.
"Call Sean Hannity!" the candidate squawked, sounding very much like a middle-schooler asked to prove that his model girlfriend goes to a different school.
For his part, Hannity has done little to assuage fears about his lack of objectivity.
In fact, he's pretty much stopped just short of changing his Twitter profile pic to a photo of himself lovingly sharing a bowl of spaghetti with Trump, Lady and the Tramp-style.
Needless to say, on the issue of the Donald, Hannity has very different views from those of his Fox News colleague, Megyn Kelly.
As you may recall, Kelly moderated the first GOP primary debate in which Trump butted heads with the 473 other candidates who were still vying for the party's nomination at that point.
More than a year later, that debate is best remembered not for testing the structural integrity of the dais at the Quicken Loans Arena, but for comments Trump made about Rosie O'Donnell and the way in which he clashed with Kelly:
In the clip above, Trump doubles down on his attack the morning after the debate by cracking jokes about Kelly's menstrual cycle.
Understandably, the incident didn't exactly endear Kelly to Trump, and throughout his campaign, she's been more critical of the candidate than most of her co-workers at the traditionally right-leaning Fox.
At one point, there were even reports that Kelly was suspended from the network due to her anti-Trump views.
Kelly denies those rumors, and aside from a few occasions in which she's defended Trump...
...she hasn't wavered in her opinion that he's probably not the right man for the White House.
On Wednesday night's broadcast of The Kelly Files, the pundit criticized Trump and Hillary Clinton, stating her belief that both candidates avoid journalists who might hold their feet to the fire with regard to sensitive issues:
“Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10 o’clock, 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 for either one of them,” Kelly told viewers.
Somewhat shockingly, given their status as longtime colleagues, Hannity replied with a tweet bashing Kelly for her alleged pro-Clinton bias:
“@megynkelly u should be mad at @HillaryClinton Clearly you support her. And @realDonaldTrump did talk to u,” Hannity wrote.
Kelly has yet to respond to the criticism, but we imagine the break room at Fox is about to get a lot more awkward.
These two need a mild-mannered go-between to help them iron things out.
Where's Alan Colmes when you need him?!
UPDATE: Last night, Kelly tweeted the photo below with a caption reading, "We're Irish. It's complicated. #friends"
Hannity echoed the sentiment, sub-tweeting, "We are Irish!! Its complicated #friends"
Maybe that break room won't be so awkward after all.
