Democratic Rep. demands Fox News fire ‘pig in the mud’ Sean Hannity: ‘Lowest of the low’

Published

on

In an interview with CNN host Wolf Blitzer,  Gerald Connolly, a Democratic member of the United States House of Representatives, had zero remorse for Sean Hannity.

“Sean Hannity has been among the lowest of the low, wrestling in the mud of Birther conspiracy, Seth Rich conspiracies about the young man who was murdered here in Washington, that maybe that was a different kind of murder,” Connolly said. “All kinds of conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton, and distributing false and fake news left and right. Now what we learn is he’s defending the president’s lawyer on television, he has a conflict of interest and ethical conflict of interest.” 

It was revealed on Monday that Michael Cohen represents Fox News personality Sean Hannity. In defense, Hannity tweeted that he was never an official client of Cohen.

Despite his response, Connolly says that Fox has no choice but to fire Hannity immediately.

“I  think they ought to fire Sean Hannity. I think he is so into this, like a pig in the mud, he can’t get out of it and I think he deserves to be fired,” he said. “His word could never again be trusted given the fact that he consciously did not reveal this relationship.”

Published

on

President Donald Trump's racism is shocking the entire globe, Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent wrote in a Thursday column.

"One of the most chilling things about President Trump’s hate-rally in North Carolina — which devolved into chants of “send her back,” directed at a nonwhite immigrant member of Congress — was the profusion of tweets about it from abroad," Sargent reported.

"As the president of the United States leads a domestic hate movement, the world is watching," he explained.

Published

on

The House Judiciary Committee is investigating President Donald Trump's former White House communications director after new documents cast doubt on whether she told the truth while testifying before Congress.

"Hicks told the committee last month that she was not aware of the hush payment to Stormy Daniels when it was arranged.
