‘I’m so f*cking mad’: Fox News staffers erupt with rage after Sean Hannity campaigns with Trump

Published

on

Fox News employees expressed outrage this week after Sean Hannity referred to his own network as “fake news” at a campaign rally with President Donald Trump.

CNN on Tuesday reported that more than a dozen Fox News staffers said they were disappointed by Hannity’s decision to participate in a campaign rally in Missouri on Monday night.

“People throughout the company think a new line was crossed,” one employee of the network told CNN.

“It disturbs me to my core,” another Fox News staffer agreed. “I am so f—ing mad.”

A third employee explained that staffers had been told that Hannity would limit his participation to interviewing the president.

“We were all told that Hannity was going to interview the president, but no one that I spoke with expected what happened last night,” the employee said. “I’m aghast as are a number of other people.”

Although Hannity promised in a tweet not to campaign with the president, he appeared on stage with Trump at the rally.

And to add insult to injury, Hannity referred to media in the room — including Fox News employees — as “fake news.”

“By the way,” Hannity told the crowd, “all those people in the back are fake news.”

Maddow warns of Donald Trump causing massive gonorrhea, syphilis and chlamydia outbreak

Published

The host of MSNBC's "The Rachel Maddow Show" warned of the Trump administration causing a widespread outbreak of Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs).

"But here’s a story that just broke this afternoon that I think is likely to have pretty profound consequences all over the country. And one of the reasons we know that -- or at least we have reason to suspect that -- is because we’ve already seen a few little case studies about how exactly this is going to go wrong, because there are a few states that sort of beat the rest of the country to the punchline on this one," Maddow explained.
