Hannity responds to reports that he’s Cohen’s client by spending an hour yelling about James Comey
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.
