Fox News host Sean Hannity asserted on Wednesday that Democrats who embraced the Black Lives Matter movement were backing “racism” similar to the Ku Klux Klan.

During a segment called “Race In America,” Hannity complained that Democratic presidential candidates had agreed to participate in a town hall event with “radical” Black Lives Matter activists.

“Not all lives matter, black lives matter,” Hannity told Fox News contributor Juan Williams. “Your Democratic Party is going to allow the ‘pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon’ group to host a Democratic forum?”

“What’s wrong with your party?” the host asked. “Why don’t you let the Klan host a party? Talking about killing cops, fry them like bacon.”

“You guys make this into that this was the anthem of all Black Lives Matter,” Williams pointed out. “Let’s get to the politics of it. They are a special interest group and they are saying they want attention for their issue.”

“Right,” Hannity quipped. “The ‘pigs in a blanket, fry them like bacon’ group.”

“How in this day in age can you say black lives matter — all lives matter — and just say black lives,” the Fox News host continued. “Hispanic lives don’t matter, Asian lives don’t matter, white lives don’t matter, the unborn lives don’t matter. That, to me, is racist!”

Williams reminded Hannity that Republicans also listened to special interest groups like the NRA.

“There’s a group of Republicans called NRA, guns everywhere, let’s have a shooting gallery for a country!” Williams exclaimed.

Hannity was shocked by the comparison: “Don’t compare the NRA to this racism! Excuse me, I’m a proud NRA member and I’m the biggest gun safety person you’ll ever meet.”

President Donald Trump took one minute out of his day on Tuesday to hold a press conference in which he took credit for gains in the stock market, which came after President-elect Joe Biden's transition was allowed to formally begin.

At his press conference which lasted almost exactly one minute, Trump credited his administration for the Dow Jones Industrial Average trading above 30,000 for the first time.

"The stock market, it's just broken 30,000," the president said. "Never broken that number. That's a sacred number. Nobody thought they would ever see it. That's the ninth time since the beginning of 2020 and it's the 48th time that we have broken records in -- during the Trump administration."
