Fox News host Sean Hannity lashed out at the liberal media, cable network CNN and media reporter Brian Stelter in a particularly unhinged rant on Tuesday morning’s Fox and Friends.
Conservative blog The Daily Caller cheered on Hannity’s meltdown, in which he said that CNN personnel “literally kiss Hillary’s ass and Obama’s ass every day.”
“There’s a double standard in everything. Donald Trump, Mike Pence said to me the other night that they’re playing two-on-one. The media is so in the tank, so on-board for Hillary, they’re abusively biased,” Hannity whined via phone.
“I literally watched a show on CNN over the weekend and you got this little pipsqueak named Brian Stelter,” he said, clearly still stinging from Stelter’s excoriation of him last week for trafficking in right-wing conspiracy theories regarding Hillary Clinton’s health.
Hannity went on, “And he allowed this arrogant professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism, to talk about Trump being a demagogue and demagogues like Trump becoming dictators. That’s the type of coverage that CNN offers in this presidential race as they literally kiss Hillary’s ass and Obama’s ass every day.”
Fox and Friends co-host Ainsley Earhardt tut-tutted at his language.
“Wait a minute, Sean, I don’t know if we can say that. It’s early,” she said.
“I think it’s too late, we were going to go on a delay,” said fellow co-host Brian Kilmeade.
Hannity apologized, saying, “By the way, I say that on my show every night. I’m sorry guys.”
Earlier this week, Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson said that the liberal media “literally beat Trump supporters into submission.”
We at the Raw Story Malaprop Desk feel that some Trump supporters could use a primer on the definition of the word “literally.”
