The New Yorker Observer, owned by Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner, has been under fire for endorsing the billionaire real-estate tycoon in his bid for the White House and allegedly quashing negative stories about him.

But a scathing article published Monday by The Observer trashes the GOP presidential candidate as "thin skinned" and says Fox News personality Sean Hannity is Trump's "chief sycophant"

The story is ostensibly a takedown of the conservative Hannity, but Observer columnist Joe Lapointe also throws in a dig at his boss' father-in-law.

"Like Trump, Hannity is a thin-skinned 'counter-puncher' who can be baited into an over-the-top reaction," Lapointe writes.

He says Hannity, who "represents the low-brow, anti-intellectual and reactionary wing of the Republican Party and the conservative movement," operates as Trump's "chief sycophant."

Kushner, who is married to Ivanka Trump, has been criticized for interfering with his staff's anti-Trump opinion pieces.

Last month, Observer editor-at-large Ryan Holiday revealed that a heartfelt column he wrote begging his father not to vote for Trump had been rejected for publication.

And in April, restaurant critic Joshua David Stein quit in protest over the newspaper's endorsement of Trump — saying he could no longer stomach "taking money from and making money for a shill for Trump, Destroyer of Worlds."
