‘Turn him into Bill Cosby’: Hannity and Trump plan Fox News ‘special’ with Bill Clinton’s accusers

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity is reportedly using his platform to participate in a Trump campaign “media blitz” by hosting a special program to interview Bill Clinton’s accusers.

After several women accused Donald Trump of inappropriate touching on Thursday, campaign advisers explained to Bloomberg that the GOP nominee was “doubling down” on his strategy to depress turnout by dredging up Bill Clinton’s scandals.

According to a senior Trump official, campaign CEO Stephen Bannon told staffers that he wanted to focus on Hillary Clinton’s “program of victim intimidation.”

“This has nothing to do with consensual sexual affairs and infidelities,” Bannon reportedly said. “This is Bill. We’re going to turn him into Bill Cosby. He’s a violent sexual predator who physically abuses women who he assaults. And she takes the lead on the intimidation of the victims.”

Hannity’s Fox News special is scheduled to air Thursday night. During the program, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Paula Jones are expected to recount their alleged assaults by Bill Clinton.

As Bloomberg’s Joshua Greene noted, few millennial women voters watch Hannity’s program so the campaign also plans to use Trump’s Twitter account to force the issue.

“By tweeting, by just moving it out there. The mainstream media will be embarrassed not to cover this,” one adviser insisted.

Update: CNN’s Brian Stelter reported that Trump backed out an interview on Hannity’s Thursday night’s show. But the interviews with Kathy Shelton, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, and Juanita Broaddrick were expected to go on as planned.

"When you guys cover the briefings with the health officials then you can expect them back on your air," a Pence spokesperson told CNN.

‘Well-spoken cultist’: Bill Barr trashed for praising ‘statesmanlike’ Trump and urging an end to COVID-19 lockdowns

Published

During an interview with Fox News host Laura Ingraham Wednesday night, Attorney General Bill Barr praised President Trump's "statesman-like" effort at the "beginning" of the coronavirus epidemic where he "tried to bring people together" while "working with all the governors" -- a characterization that did not go over well with many of the President's critics on Twitter.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” —Second Amendment to the United States Constitution

As the deadly COVID-19 contagion sweeps across the country, gun sales are surging, spurred in many regions by panic buying and purchases by first-time firearm owners.
