Fox News host Sean Hannity fired back at former President Barack Obama late Tuesday in light of the latter seemingly referring to the cable network as a “propaganda” outlet.

Mr. Obama “can’t get Fox News out of his head,” the host of “Hannity” said during the latest episode of his prime-time opinion program.

“He can’t. We live in his mind,” Mr. Hannity said. “Me, yours truly, I live in his mind!”

The host of “Hannity” accused Mr. Obama of being fixated with Fox News after the former president appeared to criticize the network in a video message released hours earlier.

Without mentioning Fox News by name, Mr. Obama seemed to suggest that the right-leaning cable network will play a pivotal role in helping President Trump’s reelection campaign.

“So our country’s future hangs on this election, and it won’t be easy,” Mr. Obama said in the video. “The other side has a propaganda network with little regard for the truth.”

Mr. Obama made the remarks in a video announcing his endorsement of Joseph R. Biden, his former vice president, to be the Democratic nominee challenging Mr. Trump in November.

Reacting to the video on “Hannity,” the show’s host called the endorsement “kind of weak” and questioned Mr. Obama for announcing his support during the novel coronavirus pandemic.

“Even in the middle of a global pandemic, former President Obama, look at that, he can’t stop attacking Fox News,” Mr. Hannity said.

“After all of these years, we are alive and well in his mind,” the host added.
