A visit to Sean Hannity’s Fox News program by Univision anchor Jorge Ramos went immediately sideways on Wednesday night when Hannity launched into accusations that Ramos casually throws around the word “racism,” according to the Blaze.
After greeting Ramos, Hannity said, “I don’t know any other way to put this. I have watched your coverage and I listen to the things you say. You throw around this word racism with a sense of being so casual I find offensive.”
Hannity then accused Ramos of taking what GOP front-runner Donald Trump says out of context, which he thinks is “fundamentally unfair.”
“You are not objective in your opinion, although I think you’d like to portray yourself as such,” Hannity said. He then said it’s a false characterization to say Trump wants to ban Muslims from entering the country and believes all Mexican people are criminals.
“Why do you do that? Why don’t you report it honestly and then give your opinion?” Hannity concluded.
“I’m simply reporting what Donald Trump has been saying,” Ramos said.
Ramos then said immigrants are less likely to commit crimes. They then began arguing over immigrant crime rates.
In the second part of the show, Ramos turned it around on Hannity.
“I watched your forum on March 9 in North Carolina. You had an hour with Donald Trump. More than 30 questions and comments. Not even once did you challenge Donald Trump on the largest mass deportations, on banning 1.5 billion Muslims,” Ramos said.
“I’ve asked the questions!” Hannity responded, then accused Ramos again of taking Trump out of context. “And you think you’re the superior reporter? I don’t need lectures from you, Jorge Ramos.”
