Perhaps in an attempt at some damage control, he quickly added: “Sorry. I love watching your show, too.”

Hannity compared Trump’s speech to “a great work of Bach or Mozart” and said Ingraham had cut the crescendo.  

“You know what we used to say in the courtroom? I will take that under advisement,” she replied. “But I got an idea: You handle your hour, I’ll handle my hour.”
