‘It’s pretty pathetic’: Sean Hannity braces his audience for Trump rape accuser bombshell
EDITORS UPDATE: Attorney Lisa Bloom has called off Wednesday’s news conference citing threats to “Jane Doe.”
Fox News host Sean Hannity prepared his audience for yet another woman coming forward with accusations of sexual assault against Donald Trump, insisting the newest charge against the Republican presidential candidate “is going nowhere.”
“I told you there was going to be some bomb this week,” Hannity said Wednesday on the Sean Hannity Show. “Didn’t I say? He’s either going to be a drug dealer, or a rapist, or a child molestor or a murderer.”
Referencing former Miss Universe Alicia Machado’s speech yesterday at a rally for Hillary Clinton, Hannity told his audience the reason Clinton “suddenly pivoted back to play the gender card” is because the Democratic candidate is planning to capitalize on Trump’s latest accuser.
“There’s this woman that had claimed that Donald Trump raped her when she was thirteen years old and is going to break her silence on Wednesday afternoon,” Hannity said. “So that’s the one they’ve been holding back on.”
Lisa Bloom—the attorney representing a woman who says she was raped by Trump when she was 13 years old—told radio host Stephanie Miller the accuser will hold a live press conference Wednesday afternoon. The woman, known only by her pseudonym “Katie Johnson,” is expected to detail a 1994 encounter with Trump that took place during an “orgy” at the home of convicted child molester Jeffrey Epstein.
Despite the details, Hannity predicts “this is going nowhere.”
“You know all these years, Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones have been out there telling their stories,” Hannity said. “And of course, you know, Hillary was part of the effort to smear and slander and besmirch—it’s pretty pathetic.”
“But you know what, I don’t think any of these things go anywhere,” he continued. “They had 12 women come out against Trump, and none of them—nobody knows their names.”
Hannity went on to cast doubt on several of the women who claimed Trump engaged in inappropriate sexual conduct, dismissing one accuser as “the porn star” and another as “the woman on the plane that didn’t say anything” at the time of the assault.
The talk show host concluded his rant by insisting the “media got embarrassed” and continued reporting on “false stories” despite evidence that the accusations were false.
