Fox News host Sean Hannity went to bat for Donald Trump on Wednesday night, calling out several Republicans he felt could be held responsible for Hillary Clinton’s “radical left-wing agenda” should she win the presidency in November.
“She’s proven she does not have the character, she does not have the temperament to be the president of the United States,” Hannity said of Clinton. “Is that the person these Republican crybabies really want to be the next commander-in-chief? They want to help her? It’s very disturbing, and it’s disgusting, and it’s fairly dangerous.”
Hannity, who has openly expressed his support for Trump, identified Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME), Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol, former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) among the many Republicans he felt were playing a “stupid game” by refusing to back Trump, the party’s current nominee.
“By refusing to support Trump, it seems they’re effectively supporting a woman who has proven time and time again that she is a liar and a corrupt politician,” he argued.
To back up his point, Hannity alluded to a lawsuit filed against Clinton by families of two men killed in the Benghazi embassy attack, while failing to mention that they are being represented by serial litigant — and Tea Party activist — Larry Klayman.
He also showed footage from a Republican-led hearing on the fatal attack, without mentioning that the GOP’s investigation against Clinton has failed to produce evidence of any wrongdoing on her part.

‘Meanest and most disrespectful’ senator: Trump lashes out at Kamala Harris in latest presser
At Tuesday's White House press conference, President Donald Trump spent a considerable portion of the time attacking Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who was just announced to be former Vice President Joe Biden's running mate.
Harris, complained Trump, was the "meanest and most disrespectful person in the U.S. Senate." He particularly dwelled on her sharp interrogation of Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court hearings.
Trump also added that she "lied" about a number of issues, claimed repeatedly she wants to raise taxes, said she is for "open borders and sanctuary cities ... which is also protecting a large number of criminals," and that she would destroy the Second Amendment.
