Donald Trump safeword, Sean Hannity, is spinning a strange story this Thursday. In his radio program, Hannity explained to his listeners that even if his BFF loses the debate Sunday night, he’ll still win the debate and if only he mentioned Hillary Clinton’s underwear, could the election be won.
“I actually have come to a different conclusion as it relates to debates. Hear me out on this,” Hannity began, knowing anyone listening might be dubious. “I don’t think Trump has to win the debates.”
His theory is that all Trump must do is prove Clinton is a robot. He then launched into a bad Clinton impression, Honestly. “I want to tell you about Donald Trump. Donald Trump hates women. Donald Trump had Trump University. Donald Trump does not have the temperament to be president. Donald Trump 20 years ago did this. Donald Trump 24 years ago did that.”
Hannity claims that those topics are the only thing Clinton has any room to talk about and she can’t talk about all of the conspiracy theories Hannity, Trump and his InfoWars friends have invented.
“She can’t talk about the economy. She can’t talk about the statistics I give you every day,” Hannity said. “She can’t talk about Benghazi — 600 denied requests before, not sending held during, lying after. She can’t talk about this ridiculous Iranian deal. She can’t — she can talk about Trump’s taxes all she wants, all Trump has to do is turn to her and say ‘why did you deduct your old underwear?'” a strange question since Trump is the one with the tax problems.
“I think that would be impactful,” Hannity said, egging Trump on. “At that point, it’s checkmate. She’s trying to do everything she can do to pay less, who is she to lecture him, and all he’s doing is following the rules and the laws that people like her, lifetime politicians, set up. And she used it herself. So ridiculous.”
