Fox News host and Donald Trump lapdog Sean Hannity often spars with the vaunted mainstream political press. But he set his sights towards Katie Nolan this weekend, after the FS1 personality called him a “literal f***** moron.”

The exchange started when Hannity lambasted the New York Times, which published a story Saturday about Trump’s habit of phoning friends outside of the White House for strategic advice. Hannity, who’s been one of Trump’s most ardent defenders, was listed as a trusted confidante to the President. The right-wing firebrand didn’t take kindly to his inclusion in the piece, accusing the National Security Agency of surveilling and unmasking him –– an apparent reference to reports that former NSA head Susan Rice asked for the identities of some Trump associates whose conversations were caught on surveillance.

Maggie Haberman, one of the authors of the story, fired back at Hannity.

But Haberman’s rebuttal was nothing compared to Nolan’s reaction. The former “Garbage Time” host dug right into her Fox cohort, unleashing a stream of insults. This prompted Hannity to take a shot at Nolan’s career.

When Hannity stopped engaging Saturday night, Nolan went after tweeters who were taunting her with sexist remarks.

Hannity appeared to express contrition Sunday, saying he has “ZERO problem” with Nolan “being real.” While Nolan and Hannity work for different networks, FS1 and Fox News are both owned by 21st Century Fox.

Though “Garbage Time” is on indefinite hiatus, FS1 says they have big plans for Nolan. Earlier this year, the Sporting News reported the station is developing several new TV shows for the feisty commentator. Perhaps Hannity could be her first guest.

AROUND THE WEB:

— When Tom Brady skipped the Patriots’ trip to the White House last week, he said it was due to personal reasons. He posted a picture of his parents on Instagram for their anniversary and it is known his mother, Galynn, is battling cancer.

However, some speculated he missed the event because his wife, Gisele, is not a fan of Donald Trump and then that Trump was angry with Brady for not attending after Trump did not mention Brady during the ceremony. Donte Stallworth spoke with TMZ this weekend and said this is not the case and Brady did miss the trip to spend time with his mom.

“Unfortunately, it wasn’t any other circumstance,” Stallworth said. ” … This is a very trying time for not just [Brady’s mom] obviously, but for his whole family so I would caution people against speculating before they know all the facts of what’s actually happening.”

He also said he does not believe this has affected Brady’s friendship with Trump.

“I think their relationship will probably be fine,” Stallworth said. “I don’t necessarily believe that the President would have intentionally taken a shot at– he’s very big on loyalty and I know that he and Brady have been close for a very long time.”

— Want to buy Aaron Hernandez’s former North Attleboro mansion? You are in luck.

The listing price for the sprawling house has dropped to $1.299 million after it was put up for sale in March 2016 for $1.499 million.

Hernandez bought the house at 22 Ronald C Meyer Drive for $1.3 million in 2012, according to Zillow.

The 15-room house is located in the town’s Westwood Estates subdivision and boasts five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a pool and a sun-filled kitchen with a granite island.

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “No, absolutely not. I would never ever intentionally throw at somebody’s head. That’s kind of a line you don’t cross. Um, I’m sorry that it kind of ended up that high and fortunately it didn’t not hit him but I think he’s got every right to be mad that that one got loose.” — Matt Barnes, after his ejection from Sunday’s game for throwing at Manny Machado’s head
