The past few months have featured plenty of liberal versus conservative battles as Election 2016 nears the finish line. But two major players on the right took each other on this week—and it was all over Donald Trump. Hot Air reports that Fox News host Sean Hannity used his nationally syndicated radio show on Monday to launch a verbal attack against fellow radio host Glenn Beck, who has proclaimed he's on the "never Trump" side of the aisle. Hannity said that even after the new president has been selected, he has "no interest" in settling things with "saboteur" Beck, adding that he was "sick and tired” of being lectured by "a guy that gives a Nazi analogy a day."

Beck responded in a somewhat wistful-sounding Facebook post early Wednesday, calling his fellow conservative's diatribe "very sad." "Sean will always be welcome in my world. He is not my enemy. Nor is D Trump," he wrote. "There is much more to our citizenship than one presidential election. Being kind, understanding or even turning the other cheek is more important." It's not the first time Hannity has gone apoplectic on the Never Trump movement: In August, he fired shots against Beck, Ted Cruz, the National Review, and other anti-Donalds, saying that if "[Hillary Clinton] wins, I'm blaming all of you," per Business Insider.
