As soon as Bloomberg News revealed to the world that Fox News personality Sean Hannity is Trump attorney Michael Cohen’s secret third client, Twitter had a field day of hot takes, outrage and hilarity.
“Holy cannoli,” CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted with a link to the news.
“Why doesn’t @FoxNews have a conflict of interest policy requiring Hannity to disclose his personal interest in the Cohen search when commenting on it?” former White House Office of Government Ethics director Walter Schaub mused.
Vanity Fair special correspondent Joe Hagan, meanwhile, joked that “tonight’s episode of Hannity should be interesting.”
Tonight's episode of Hannity should be interesting.

The narratives coming out of the DC Character Universe just get wilder and wilder. Michael Cohen's secret third client is Sean Hannity?! Marvel can't compete with this stuff.

From now on I will only refer to Sean Hannity as "Client Number Three"

To all the Trump pundits trying to say that Sean Hannity might have a TOALLY innocent reason for hiring Cohen, such as research on his show or to ask a simple question, JUST STOP. @seanhannity went out of his way to keep his name secret-you don't do that if there's no fire.

Jeez, it's almost like we can't trust anything Fox News says anymore. Thanks a lot, @seanhannity!

Reports indicate Sean Hannity may have had an improper relationship with a "Ruth Chris," meeting with this mysterious woman upwards of 15 times a week. More on this as it develops.

"I'll get to an answer to this Michael Cohen development today,” Hannity teases his radio show, before launching into an extended MyPillow ad

So Sean Hannity has been using his perch at Fox News to rail against the investigation into someone who he didn't disclose was his own lawyer. https://t.co/gGjz3uPMoz

A federal judge has forced Trump’s personal 'f*cker-upper' Michael Cohen to reveal the identity of his secret client — which turns out to be Trump jock-sniffing sycophant Sean Hannity https://t.co/U9WnqoVSKg @FoxNews

I just left the gym, exhausted, and read the Hannity news and all the sudden I feel like I could do 10,000 pushups.
