Fox News’ Sean Hannity began his Monday night programming with a “special shoutout” to liberal viewers tuning in to see his response to news that he is Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s mysterious third client — and then went into a lengthy diatribe against fired FBI Director James Comey’s CNN interview the day prior.
“Let not your heart be troubled,” the host teased. “In a few minutes, we will address all of the rumors and speculation and you don’t want to miss that at all.”
“Today for hours and hours, the media has been absolutely apoplectic and hyperventilating over some breaking news that I have been listed in court today as a client for a longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen,” Hannity said, running a supercut of reporters saying his name before joking that he’s “not that vain.”
“In a few minutes, we’ll address the rampant speculation that couldn’t be more wrong in so many ways,” the host said before spending 55 minutes talking about Comey’s interview with CNN’s George Stephanopoulos.
With three minutes left of his hour, Hannity once again ran a clip of CNN and MSNBC reporters saying his name during their “wall-to-wall coverage of yours truly.” He then “set the record straight” by reiterating that he never paid Cohen for legal services and “occasionally” asked him for legal advice about real estate.

Trump lies to the press about his massive tax increasing while departing to France for the G7 Summit
President Donald Trump was caught repeating inaccurate claims when he spoke to reporters before boarding Marine One for his trip to France for the G7 Summit.
"I think our tariffs are very good for us. We're taking in tens of billions of dollars, China is paying for it," Trump argued.
In reality, China is not paying for the tariffs, which are paid by American importers and passed on to consumers, making the announcement a massive tax increase on Americans.
"Our tariffs are working out very well for us, people don't understand that yet," Trump argued.

Bill Maher dances on David Koch’s grave: ‘I’m glad he’s dead and I hope the end was painful’
HBO "Real Time" host Bill Maher celebrated the death of right-wing billionaire David Koch, who died of prostate cancer.
"I guess I'm going to have to reevaluate my low opinion of prostate cancer," Maher said.
"Condolences poured in from all the politicians he owned and mourners are being asked, in lieu of flowers, to just leave their car engine running," he said.
"I know these seem like harsh words and harsh jokes, and I'm sure I will be condemned for them on Fox News, which will portray Mr. Koch as a principled libertarian who believed in the free market," Maher said. "He and his brother have done more than anybody to fund climate science deniers -- for decades."
