Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison and Fox News personality Sean Hannity went at it Tuesday in a verbal bout on Hannity's TV show.

The two exchanged jabs for six minutes before Hannity ended things. Ellison (D-Minn.) accused Hannity of "yellow journalism" and called him "ridiculous," "a shill for the Republican Party."

Hannity and Ellison have a history. The two had a contentious encounter on Hannity's program in 2011, when the host had Ellison on to discuss the congressman's accusation that Fox News was inciting anti-Muslim sentiments.

Ellison is one of two Muslim-Americans in Congress.
