Oh, Internet. You are as predictable as you are, well, unpredictable. It’s hard to tell what will trigger your ire, but easy to see how the ensuing battle will unfold.( Mostly .) And, actually, there’s a consolation in that unknowingness. And that’s why this week’s collect of Internet curiosities–the secrets of purses, the political activism of variety show producers, the nation of Sean Hannity’s feelings–feels so right. Dames, gentlemen, and everybody else tuning in: these, is again, are the highlights of what you might have missed during last week’s world wide webbery.

Fox News Is No Longer a Safe Space

What Happened : Sean Hannity, Donald Trump’s favorite news personality, manages to turn” Well, that escalated rapidly” into an understatement following a comment from a fellow Fox News host.
Where It Blew Up : Twitter, media reports
What Really Happened : As if to prove that 2016 was the year of utterly unexpected political developments( insure also: The Atlantic endorsing Hillary Clinton, in only the third official endorsement of the magazine’s 159 -year history ), civil war apparently erupted at Fox News the coming week, with Megyn Kelly attaining the following comment during her Wednesday night broadcast:” Donald Trump, with all due respect to my friend at 10 oclock, will go on Hannity and pretty much only Hannity and will not venture out to the unsafe spaces these days, which doesnt precisely expand the tent .” Sean Hannity, in case it wasn’t clear, is Kelly’s” friend at 10 o’clock ,” that being his timeslot on the network. If he’d heard Kelly’s comments as they aired, he didn’t seem to respondbut that wasn’t the case once her terms constructed it online, eliciting this tweet in reply πŸ˜› TAGEND

Wait. Just that one line about Trump preferring safe spaces get Hannity to accuse Kelly of being a Clinton supporter? It was an overreaction immediately jumped upon by media Twitter
