Fox's Sean Hannity once again slammed MSNBC's Joe Scarborough in a series of tweets on Monday, citing the "Morning Joe" host's "horrific ratings" after the former GOP congressman lambasted Trump adviser Stephen Miller.
The Twitter spat came after Scarborough and MSNBC co-host Mika Brzezinski blasted Miller on their program Monday, with Scarborough declaring Miller was "awful on every level" during his Sunday political show appearances.
"Joe why don't you focus on getting your horrific ratings up," Hannity wrote. "They totally suck. And I'll take Steve Miller on my team over u any day."

Miller was awful on every level. When I hear the White House praising him, they sound like they're living in an alternative universe. https://t.co/rXkTTNJI4D— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) February 13, 2017
Trump social media director Dan Scavino also jumped into the fray, siding with Hannity and calling Scarborough "Jealous Joe." CNN's Jake Tapper made note of Scavino's tweet.

President Trump also took to twitter on Sunday to praise Miller for doing a "great job" in representing the administration.
Congratulations Stephen Miller- on representing me this morning on the various Sunday morning shows. Great job!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 12, 2017
Brzezinski, however, called the Miller interviews "frightening" after seeing the president's tweet. Miller appeared on ABC’s "This Week," CBS's "Face the Nation," NBC's "Meet the Press" and "Fox News Sunday."
The interview focused on Trump's claims of voter fraud in New Hampshire, which Miller defended without offering tangible proof in interviews that became testy, particularly on ABC with host George Stephanopoulos.
The Steven Miller interviews this morning on all the Sunday shows were frightening! Sorry Mr President. No..— Mika Brzezinski (@morningmika) February 13, 2017
A really bad sign...
Scarborough has taken particular aim at Miller in recent weeks, including Jan. 30 when he accused the 31-year-old Miller of going on a "power trip."
"You've got a very young person in the White House on a power trip thinking that you can just write executive orders and tell all of your Cabinet agencies to go to hell."
