UPDATE: Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity are burying the hatchet… or at least agreeing to smile for the camera. After feuding publicly on Twitter, the Fox News personalities posed together for a photograph, which Kelly posted to Twitter late Thursday. “We’re Irish. It’s complicated. #friends,” she wrote in the caption. See the photo at the bottom of this post.

EARLIER: Sean Hannity blasted his Fox News colleague Megyn Kelly on Twitter Wednesday night, accusing her of supporting Hillary Clinton.

Hannity’s comment comes after Wednesday’s broadcast of The Kelly File, in which she criticized Clinton and Donald Trump for agreeing to interviews only with friendly journalists. “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 said.

Hannity responded late Wednesday, writing on Twitter, “@megynkelly u should be mad at @HillaryClinton Clearly you support her. And @realDonaldTrump did talk to u.”

Hannity has been an outspoken Trump supporter, declaring his intention to vote for the businessman and reality TV star in June and appearing in a Trump campaign ad last month. (Fox has since banned Hannity from appearing in any future promotional materials for Trump until after the election.) In contrast, Kelly and Trump have shared a more prickly relationship since she moderated a Republican debate last year before the Primaries; after the Fox anchor asked the candidate whether his disparaging comments about women reflected a presidential temperament, Trump attacked Kelly on social media and told CNN, “You could see there was blood coming out of her eyes. Blood coming out of her wherever.”

Trump sat down with Kelly for an interview in May. The Republican presidential nominee has appeared on Hannity’s show dozens of times.

See Hannity’s tweets below. Kelly has yet to respond. Representatives for Fox News could not immediately be reached for comment.
