Sean Hannity:

    The Republican National Committee spent hundreds of thousands of dollars last month on books by Donald Trump Jr. and Fox News personality Sean Hannity, federal records show. The RNC’s August expenditure report filed with the Federal Election Commission shows that the committee spent $405,404 on “donor mementos” from book retailers Barnes & Noble, booksamillion.com and Porchlight Books. The RNC promoted Hannity‘s book, titled “Live Free or Die,” in early August, offering signed “priority access” copies as an incentive for political donations of $75 or higher. Around the same time, the committee launched a similar promotion for Trump Jr.’s new book, “Liberal Privilege,” which it awarded to donors at the same price point. Emails sent from an RNC address in late July suggested that the committee would make bulk pre-orders of the books, and it appears to have reported...
    Democrats are showing that they don't care about about the American justice system as it currently exists, and would like to do away with it, Sean Hannity argued Tuesday night. "Radical Democrats, the media mob, well, they don't seem to care about any precedent," the "Hannity" host said. "They don't care about the Constitution. They don't care about the Bill of Rights. They don't care about coequal branches of government and checks and balances." SEN. WHITEHOUSE WARNS GOP CAN'T COMPLAIN ABOUT 'FUTURE PROCEDURAL EFFORTS' BY DEMS IF SCOTUS PICK CONFIRMED Leading Democrats have indicated they would take extraordinary measures if the Senate confirmed President Trump's Supreme Court nominee before Election Day, with both Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., and Senate Judiciary Committee member Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., warning that nothing was "off the table."

    South Carolina Democratic challenger Jaime Harrison slammed his Senate rival, incumbent Lindsay Graham, accusing him of being more concerned with going on Fox News and hanging out with President Donald Trump than his home state’s voters. Appearing on MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell on Monday night, Harrison hit back at Graham’s rank hypocrisy about appointing a Supreme Court justice right before a presidential election as well as the senator’s apparent disregard for the ongoing coronavirus pandemic — and its accompanying economic crisis. “What I find disturbing, Lawrence, is that Lindsey Graham took off almost all of August. He went golfing. He even got a tan,” Harrison pointed out. “And now he can find the urgency to rush a Supreme Court...
    Democratic Party leaders are "threatening ... to upend every precedent we have ever had" in the political battle over choosing a successor to late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Fox News host Sean Hannity said Monday. The "Hannity" host cited statements by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y. and Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn. that "nothing is off the table" if a nominee is confirmed before the election and Democrats take control of the Senate next year. Hannity then called out out House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who declined on Sunday to rule out impeaching the president in order to stall the confirmation process. PELOSI WON'T RULE OUT USING IMPEACHMENT AS OPTION TO STOP TRUMP SUPREME COURT PICK “We have our options. We...
    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died Friday night at the age of 87, showed "incredible, inspiring courage" in the fight against her final illness, Sean Hannity told his viewers Friday night. The "Hannity" host opened his program by noting Ginsburg's "distinguished legal career" and her status as "the first Jewish woman to serve on the highest court in our land." He also pointed out Ginsburg's "great, deep friendship" with fellow Justice Antonin Scalia -- who passed away in 2016 -- despite the "deep philosophical divide" between them.

    Fox News star Sean Hannity is set to be deposed over what he knew about his network’s admittedly faulty report on the murder of former Democratic National Committee (DNC) staffer Seth Rich. The testimony is part of a lawsuit that was filed by the deceased’s parents, Joel and Mary Rich, against Fox News and others in early 2018. In the summer of 2016, Rich was killed during what police in Washington, D.C. chalked up to a robbery gone bad. Soon thereafter, right-wing elements began to speculate that Rich was gunned down over his alleged–but never substantiated–connection to the 2016 DNC email scandal that is widely considered to have harmed Hillary Clinton’s failed bid for the presidency. In this baseless version...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs will be deposed in a legal fight brought by the parents of murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich. They claim the cable news network and two other defendants intentionally inflicted emotional distress upon them by spreading conspiracy theories about their son. The two on-air talents will answer questions under oath next month, according to a recent court filing, which was first reported by the Daily Beast. Rich was murdered at the age of 27 on July 10, 2016, in what authorities say was a botched robbery. Conspiracy theorists seized upon Rich’s murder and spread the baseless rumor that he was the source of the stolen Democratic emails...

    Fox News star Sean Hannity was once his network’s most prominent booster of conspiracy theories about murdered Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich, only stopping the rumor-mongering after Rich’s grieving parents publicly begged him to knock it off.  Now, Hannity will have to answer questions, under oath, about Fox’s coverage of Rich’s death. Hannity, along with Fox Business host Lou Dobbs and a host of Fox staffers, is set to be deposed in late October over the network’s debunked reporting on Rich, which falsely claimed that he had leaked thousands of Democratic emails to WikiLeaks—a leak, they suggested, that led to his politically-motivated murder.  The depositions have been scheduled as part of an emotional distress and tortious interference lawsuit that...
    Fox News' Sean Hannity opened his program Friday night by reflecting on the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people in New York City, northern Virginia and Shanksville, Pa.

    Joe Biden is telling blatant lies about the coronavirus and "living in an alternate reality," Sean Hannity claimed in his opening monologue Thursday. “Joe actually wants Americans, you the American people, to believe that he can beat COVID-19, but only if you elect him,” the "Hannity" host said. “If he remembers what it is in November.” VIDEO MONTAGE SHOWS HOW MEDIA TAKE IT EASY ON BIDEN According to Hannity, Biden is "lying" when he claims President Trump did everything wrong in response to the coronavirus outbreak, while the former vice president was the one to “sound the alarm” on the pandemic.

    Sen. Lindsey Graham hinted at a major development related to inquiries into the Russia investigation on Thursday. The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman appeared on Fox News to discuss with host Sean Hannity newly disclosed documents that show that dozens of phones belonging to members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team had been "wiped" for a variety of reasons. "You think you are mad about the phones being wiped? Stay tuned. We’ll talk in about 10 or 12 days and we'll see if there is something else you can get mad about. Just stay tuned," the South Carolina Republican said. He did not elaborate, which left Hannity to say, "I hate when you are basically telling me you know something I...
    President Trump is being accused of lying to the public about the severity of the coronavirus pandemic, but Democrats were the ones who initially downplayed the crisis, Fox News’ Sean Hannity said Wednesday night.

"Forget what you heard in last week’s mean-spirited DNC, the United States of America is God’s gift to mankind, because here in this country, we all know anything is possible," Hannity said.

    New York (CNN Business)When representatives from all the major TV networks visited the White House's South Lawn on Monday, part of what's known as a "walkthrough" to prepare for President Trump's Thursday night speech there, there was a surprise: A mystery anchor platform.The platform hadn't been on any of the diagrams given to the networks for the prime time address Trump is slated to deliver at the end of the Republican National Convention. So calls were made. Emails were exchanged. And the network executives discovered that the platform was built for one of the president's biggest supporters: Sean Hannity.That means Hannity, who's sometimes talked about as a "shadow chief of staff" for Trump, is getting special treatment from the Trump...
    Would you "buy" anything from this guy? On Friday, the House Ethics Committee gave out the lightest admonishment to Republican Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida for his obstructing justice tweet back in February of 2019. This was when Rep. Gaetz publicly threatened former Trump personal lawyer Michael Cohen. The statement came right before Cohen was set to testify under oath about his former boss. Rep. Gaetz followed that up by deleting the tweet and then apologizing, sort of. The ethics committee said that Rep. Gaetz did a bad thing but they believe his tweet "did not violate witness tampering and obstruction of Congress laws.” However, the House Ethics Committee did have to investigate Gaetz’s bad behavior, and Politico reports that one of the things exposed by...

    Travis Gettys August 24, 2020 8:00PM (UTC) This article originally appeared on Raw Story Sean Hannity infuriated his Fox News colleagues by pre-recording his prime-time television show on the night President Donald Trump was impeached.

    The House Ethics Committee investigation, which ultimately declined to take action against Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) for a message he wrote to Michael Cohen, also revealed that the representative texted Fox News host Sean Hannity for advice and reassurance following the incident. “F*ckers are coming for my law license. You were right. We all spend our time in the barrel.” Gaetz wrote to Hannity following the backlash from his tweet to Cohen. “Hey @MichaelCohen212 – Do your wife & father-in-law know about your girlfriends? Maybe tonight would be a good time for that chat. I wonder if she’ll remain faithful when you’re in prison. She’s about to learn a lot,” Gaetz wrote in the since-deleted message. Some took Gaetz’s promise to release information...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity offered help to Rep. Matt Gaetz shortly after the Florida Republican found himself in trouble for a tweet about Michael Cohen. They conversed via text message on Feb. 27, one day after he was accused of threatening Cohen during a congressional hearing in 2019, during which the longtime personal lawyer to President Trump testified about his former boss. The conversation between Hannity and Gaetz, both vociferous Trump supporters, was included as a part of a House Ethics Committee report released last week. The panel ruled that the tweet "did not violate witness tampering and obstruction of Congress laws," but Gaetz's tweet "did not meet the standards by which Members of the House should govern...

    Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris once expressed support for women who accused presidential nominee Joe Biden of inappropriate behavior, so where are all the “I believers” now, Sean Hannity asked Thursday night. In her Democratic National Convention remarks Wednesday, Harris announced that she “knows a predator” when she sees one and that there is “no vaccine for racism.” FLASHBACK: KAMALA HARRIS SAID SHE BELIEVED WOMEN WHO ACCUSED BIDEN OF INAPPROPRIATE TOUCHING “A few months ago, she said she believed Biden’s accusers,” the “Hannity” host said. “So what do you really see in your running mate, Senator Harris?” One of Biden’s accusers, Tara Reade, accused the Democratic Party in an interview with Fox News Digital this week of being “complicit” in “gaslighting” survivors of sexual misconduct.

    Although Fox News personality Sean Hannity and President Donald Trump appear to share a close relationship, a new book by CNN reporter Brian Stelter claims that privately the right-wing host feels differently about Trump than he proclaims publically. Vanity Fair printed an excerpt of Hoax, which is a book that examines the relationship Hannity shares with President Trump. An associate of Hannity is quoted in the work and explained how Hannity really feels about the man in the United States oval office. “‘Hannity would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a batshit crazy person,’ one of his associates said.

    Roger Sollenberger August 20, 2020 8:59PM (UTC) Fox News host Sean Hannity has repeatedly expressed alarm to confidants about what he hears in private conversations with President Donald Trump, an excerpt from a new book by CNN chief media correspondent Brian Stelter reveals. "If you were hearing what I'm hearing, you'd be vaping, too," Hannity allegedly told a friend, according to Stelter's forthcoming "Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth." : Another Hannity associate told Stelter the Fox News host had confided that the president was "batshit crazy" in moments of candor.

    Sean Hannity is among President Donald Trump’s most strident sycophants at Fox News, angrily lambasting anyone who questions anything that Trump says or does. But according to CNN reporter Brian Stelter’s forthcoming book, “Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth,” Hannity has privately told colleagues that he believes Trump is “batshit crazy.” Vanity Fair has published an except from Stelter’s book, which contains interviews with Hannity associates who spoke on condition of anonymity. In that except, Stelter quotes a Hannity associate as saying that the Fox News host “would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a batshit crazy person.” And a friend of Hannity, similarly, told Stelter, “Hannity has said to me more than...

    The Democratic National Convention has turned into a "cult of hatred" directed toward President Trump as part of a collective effort to "mitigate" the party's "scary socialist agenda," Sean Hannity claimed Wednesday. "Thus far, the theme of the DNC has been all about hating Donald Trump, the cult of hatred, psychosis, and madness on some levels, with of course, the vague, typical platitudes, bumper stickers and slogans," the "Hannity" host explained.

    The first night of the Democratic National Convention largely offered nothing of value, Sean Hannity argued Tuesday before claiming that Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt. was the "only person who actually gave any substance at all." "Those who did tune in for the convention got a predictable dose of poorly-produced, cult-like, psychotic rage [and] hysteria against all things Donald Trump," the "Hannity" host said. "I thought they were the uniters ... all phony rhetoric." "It was boring. It was awkward. It was disjointed. What's worse is [there was] zero substance. Nothing," Hannity continued. "We heard no real solutions on how they will improve the lives of you, the American people. No policy discussions, no mention of the crisis in America's disastrous Democratic-run cities, no...
    Democrats are sure to promote "hysteria against all things Donald Trump" at this week's Democratic National Convention, but it's what they won't say that speaks volumes about their vision for the future of the country, Sean Hannity claimed Monday. "Without a doubt, it will be the most boring, repetitive, dull, mean-spirited convention in history," Hannity said during the first night of the four-day event. "We will get a heavy dose of hatred and rage and cult-like madness, psychosis, hysteria against all things Donald Trump.

    The team of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his vice presidential pick Kamala Harris are the "single most radical ticket" from any political party ever to run, Sean Hannity said Saturday on "Watters' World." "The fascinating thing to me is, historically, you know this, you have candidates, they'll reach out to their base to get the nomination, and they gravitate or race back to the center. The one exception was Donald Trump. What you see is what you get, what he says, what he believes his promises were made and they were all kept for the last three and a half years," Hannity said. "Joe Biden has now doubled down on radicalism and socialism." HARRIS EMBRACES RUNNING MATE ATTACK...
    Sean Hannity rhetorically questioned Kamala Harris Thursday over her previously stated reservations about presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden, now that Harris has agreed to serve as his running mate. "I think she [Harris] memorized her lines and delivered them quite well when she confronted, well, the ever-forgetful Joe, the corrupt Joe, about his work with segregationists and opposing integration and so much more," the "Hannity host said.

    Anything that can be perceived as an attack on Trump—literally anything that can be perceived as a slight against whatever his strange personal narrative of himself is—throws the aspiring fascist into a tizzy. On Tuesday, Trump called in to talk to his bestie, Sean Hannity of Fox News. While the show ran, Trump rambled about this and that and this and that … and this and that. Hannity and the rest of the misinformation propaganda wing of the Republican Party’s job when interviewing any official is to tee up softball questions that allow said official to go right into a (usually) pre-rehearsed set of talking points.

The book dethroned Mary Trump’s book Too Much and Never Enough from the No. 1 slot, which sold over 950,000 copies on its first week. Life Free or Die is Hannity’s fifth book and first in the last 10 years. Amazon describes the book as Hannity demonstrating “why now is an All Hands on Deck moment to save the Republic. His solution is simple: if all you can do is vote, then vote. But if you can inform people of the truth, that’s even better. And the truth...

    Kamala Harris was ripped by Sean Hannity as "the most radical running mate ever" because she "supports socialism." Speaking on his Fox News show Tuesday night, Hannity mocked Joe Biden for choosing Kamala Harris as his Vice Presidential pick. 6Kamala Harris was revealed to be Joe Biden's Vice Presidential pick on TuesdayCredit: Splash News 6Sean Hannity, pictured, said Harris' 'radical extremist record is atrocious'Credit: Reuters Hannity said: "This pick now solidifies what is the most extreme, radical, far-left, out-of-the-mainstream ticket of any major political party in American history.  "Her radical extremist record is atrocious.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden and his newly minted running mate Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., make up the most radical and extreme ticket put forward by any major political party in U.S. history, Sean Hannity argued Tuesday. "This pick now solidifies what is the most extreme, radical, far-left, out-of-the-mainstream ticket of any major political party in American history. Her radical extremist record is atrocious," Hannity said. "Her support for socialism [is] frankly scary." VideoHannity called out Harris over her embrace of single-payer health care, her decision to back the Green New Deal, and, among other things, her proposed executive action on guns. "Now more than ever, Joe Biden is running on the most radical platform of any candidate from any major party in U.S. history, now with the most radical running mate ever," he said. "In other...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity will interview President Trump on Tuesday night to discuss the news of the day, including presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden's choice of Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., as his running mate. Trump offered his initial reactions to the Biden-Harris ticket during a news conference at the White House, telling reporters he was "surprised" that his 2020 rival would pick the California senator and calling her "extraordinarily nasty" over her treatment of Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his 2018 Senate confirmation.

    Former vice president and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden has been open about his lifelong struggle to overcome his stutter and has devoted time to mentoring children with similar issues. As The Washington Post reported last year, it is a “central part of his political story.” On Monday night, as Sean Hannity’s guests chortled, the Fox News host mockingly affected a stutter to ridicule the presidential hopeful. For months now, President Donald Trump and his conservative media allies have attempted to frame Biden as mentally unfit for office, accusing him of being senile and suffering from cognitive decline. Hannity, a Trump confidant who is sometimes referred to as the White House shadow chief of staff, has led the charge...
    November's election represents "the biggest choice election by far in our lifetime and the consequences couldn't be bigger," Fox News host Sean Hannity told "The Story" Monday night. "[On] every issue, it's amazing, there is the deepest divide," Hannity, the author of the new book "Live Free or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink," told host Martha MacCallum. "I've never seen one major party candidate [Democrat Joe Biden] race so solidly to the left ... I mean, they co-opted Bolshevik Bernie's [Sanders] agenda, pledging trillions for AOC's [Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's] new green deal, the gun czar is 'You're damn right we're going to take your gun'  Beto O'Rourke." Hannity's comments came after President Trump accused Biden Friday of "following the...
    This column has been adapted from Sean Hannity's new book, "Live Free Or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink"Trump’s call with Zelensky was routine; the president was asking lots of other world leaders to cooperate with Barr’s probe. In fact, America would never have even heard about this nonissue were it not for the infamous “whistle-blower.” Eighteen days after the Trump- Zelensky call, an unnamed CIA officer filed a complaint with the inspector general of the intelligence community, accusing Trump of abusing his power for political gain by pressuring Zelensky to investigate the Bidens and 2016 election meddling. By September, Democrats and the media had swirled this trivial call into a full-blown “scandal,” adding even more allegations. Trump had...
    This column has been adapted from Sean Hannity's new book, "Live Free Or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink"The Trump impeachment was actually two stories. The hate-Trump press wanted America to hear only one of these—the fantasy claim that Trump abused his power by pressuring Ukraine for dirt on Joe Biden. But it’s the other story that matters, since it puts everything into context. That’s the story of Ukrainian corruption. The media never covered this reality because it vindicated Trump. That story also centered on the front-runner for the Democratic nomination: former vice president Joe Biden. It particularly spotlighted Biden’s second son Hunter, a lawyer and lobbyist. Hunter was acutely aware of the sway of the Biden name, and...
    On December 18, 2019, Democrats did to Donald J. Trump what they’d promised from the moment he was elected: they impeached him. That vote had nothing to do with telephone calls to the Ukrainian president, or quid pro quos, or obstruction of Congress. It had nothing to do with high crimes or misdemeanors—or even impropriety. It was not about “protecting national security,” or “upholding the Constitution,” or any of the dishonest arguments Democrats gave for their vote. Impeachment was instead the foreordained outcome of the left’s psychotic rage against President Trump. They were unable to accept that he won the 2016 election. This president, as a result, lives rent-free in their heads, every second of every day. It’s become a...
    Fox News primetime anchor Sean Hannity’s first new book in 10 years, Live Free Or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink, has topped Amazon’s list of bestsellers. Hannity’s previous bestsellers include Conservative Victory (2010), Deliver Us From Evil (2004), and Let Freedom Ring (2002). The last book debuted in a significantly different media landscape speaking both broadly and specifically for Hannity. He was just a year into hosting his own program, Hannity, in 2010 after a successful 13-year run on Hannity & Colmes with late cohost Alan Colmes. The audience for Hannity stood at more than 4 million last month compared to around 2 million in its first year. Hannity has said he views himself as a commentator, but added...
    The Republican National Committee (RNC) is promoting a new book written by Fox News host Sean Hannity — and offering signed copies as an incentive for political donations. The book, titled “Live Free or Die,” does not go on sale until later this month. However, an email sent from an RNC HQ address over the weekend suggests that the committee will make a bulk pre-order — if it has not already done so. “It won’t be available until later this month,” the email says. “But because you’re a TOP supporter, we’re giving you PRIORITY-ACCESS so that you can get your copy FIRST.” The bonus kicks in at a $75 starting price point, and the email suggests that the president, whom Hannity has advised and routinely interviews for the network, involved himself personally in the process: “Trump has requested...
    The anti-Trump "smear machine" is up and running and it's only going to get worse as the election gets closer, Sean Hannity said Monday. "This is the arrangement, [it's] sadly predictable behavior," the "Hannity" host said. "We see it every two years and every four years, and as we now march closer to the election, [near] the three-month mark, the smear machine is only going to get worse. Prepare yourself for the greatest insanity, emotional roller coaster -- well, you've probably never seen before.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden continually moves left on the political spectrum, breaking from a history of Democrat presidential nominees posturing as centrists as a general election nears, Sean Hannity, author of Live Free or Die: America (and the World) on the Brink, told host Joel Pollak on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday. Hannity recalled that former President Barack Obama publicly presented himself as more moderate than his genuine political inclinations, particularly in 2008 during his first presidential campaign. Biden, on the other hand, continually moves left as November’s election approaches. “We’ve never really seen this before,” Hannity stated. “You and I have been through a lot of election cycles together, and usually–you watch presidential candidates–they’ll move to the left or the...
    Sean Hannity joined "Life, Liberty & Levin" this week to discuss what he described as the dire situation facing the United States should former Vice President Joe Biden defeat President Trump in November's election.

    Sean Hannity and I have been friends for 30 years. I think of him as a younger, dramatically more successful brother. In a sense, we both grew up together. I was elected Speaker of the House in November 1994, just as his new radio career was starting to take off. We had immediate camaraderie. We knew we shared the same values — freedom, integrity, love for the Constitution and love for America. TRUMP ALLY CHRISTIE URGES MORE AND EARLIER PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES It is no surprise to me that Sean has become one of the most influential voices in conservative talk radio and one of the most-watched shows on Fox News. He is incredibly talented and intelligent, but more than that, he is always looking to learn and improve, no matter...
    Sean Hannity told Fox News Radio's “The Brian Kilmeade Show” Friday that he was motivated to write his forthcoming book "Live Free or Die" by the upcoming election, which the "Hannity" host says is "going to be a tipping point" for America. “I see the Democratic Party just racing, not only to the left, but to the far radical left," Hannity told host Brian Kilmeade. "We can see this now, with Joe Biden leading the way and then the comments of Barack Obama [at John Lewis' funeral] yesterday."

"His big...
     Fox News anchor Sean Hannity responded to John Oliver’s recent criticism that he has inaccurately portrayed the protests in Portland — claiming the late-night host is “not funny” and ignoring facts during SiriusXM’s “Jim Norton & Sam Roberts” radio show. During Sunday’s Last Week Tonight episode, Oliver blasted Hannity for misrepresenting the Portland protests as “the end of America as we know it,” and played a clip of a reporter explaining that the chaos being broadcasted was exclusive to one city block. The host later noted that those on the ground had reported less confrontation in Portland before the federal agents, deployed by President Donald Trump, showed up and faulted news reporters and the Trump administration for misrepresenting the protests. “Well, John Oliver, number one, he’s got...
    Sean Hannity has never minced words when it comes to what a Joe Biden presidency would mean for the country, but with fewer than 100 days remaining before the November election, the Fox News primetime host is ramping up his warnings in a new Fox Nation special, "Live Free or Die with Sean Hannity." "I’m gonna be very blunt here," Hannity told host Greg Jarrett. "Schumer, Pelosi, Biden, 125 [combined] years of failure. If what they are running on is ever implemented, bye-bye American Pie, it’s over," he said. "America as we know it will be changed forever. Irreparable damage will be done if those policies that they’re stating publically are implemented. "How serious am I?" he emphasized, "Serious as a heart attack."...
    Sean Hannity rounded on the Democratic mayors of Seattle and Portland Monday, accusing them of "aiding and abetting all of this nonstop crime" after another weekend of lawlessness and violence in those cities. "[Seattle] Mayor [Jenny] Durkan, [Portland] Mayor [Ted] Wheeler or city council so-called leaders, how can you not see or care what this is all resulting in and at what point do we blame these failed politicians for aiding and abetting all of this nonstop crime and chaos and carnage?" Hannity asked in his opening monologue Monday. AMERICAN MAYHEM: MORE RIOTING AND LAWLESSNESS IN CITIES ACROSS US Hannity praised President Trump for "taking bold action to restore law and order" after he cracked down on protestors in a tweet Monday night. "Anarchists, Agitators or Protestors who vandalize or damage our Federal Courthouse...
     Last Week Tonight host John Oliver blasted Fox News host Sean Hannity for misrepresenting the protests in Portland, Oregon after President Donald Trump sent federal officers to the city, arguing Trump’s  tone “does not honestly reflect the conditions on the ground.” Following Oliver’s segment on Portland, the host addressed the containment and abuse the Uighur people are facing at the hands of the Chinese government. The Black Lives Matter demonstrations in Portland have been occurring daily since the police killing of George Floyd, and Oliver explains that they were de-escalating until Trump deployed federal agents to the city — calling his leadership tactics “great.” “OK, first: It’s never good when Trump says he’s doing a ‘great job,’ given that he thinks his administration is doing a ‘great...
    On Sunday night, John Oliver kicked off the latest edition of his acclaimed late-night show Last Week Tonight by addressing the ongoing brutalizing of Black Lives Matter protesters by Trump’s federal agents in Portland, Oregon. “The protests in Portland have actually been going on daily for nearly two months now, since the killing of George Floyd,” said Oliver. “But the deployment of federal agents was a sharp escalation of questionable legality, and yet, to hear the president tell it, he had no choice and it was a terrific idea.” Yes, in a press conference with reporters, Trump announced, “We’re doing a great job in Portland. Portland was very rough, and they called us in, and we did a...

    Fox News says there are inconsistencies in the allegations of a former guest that accused their primetime anchors of sexual harassment. In a lawsuit filed on Monday in New York, Cathy Areu alleges that Tucker Carlson invited her to a hotel room, implying his wife wouldn't be there, and that Sean Hannity offered to pay one of his staff members to take her on a date. She says that her refusal to 'play along' led to her rarely, if ever, being invited back to either of their programs.  But Fox News told Mediaite that Areu, 49, continued to appear on Carlson's show, and was invited back four times in the four months after she claims he harassed her.   Additionally, Areu...
    Major holes appear to be forming former Fox News guest Cathy Areu's lawsuit against Fox News and some of its prominent hosts, including Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. Fox News has vehemently denied Areu's allegations. What's a brief history? Areu, 49, filed the lawsuit on Monday, insisting that several current and former Fox personalities acted with varying degrees of sexually inappropriate behavior toward her. Areu says she was prevented from appearing on Fox News after she rebuffed several advances from the likes of Carlson, Hannity, and more. Fox News recently told the Washington Examiner that a third-party investigation found that Areu's claims are false. "Based on the findings of a comprehensive independent investigation conducted by...
    Inconsistencies are emerging in claims made by Cathy Areu, a once-periodic Fox News guest, that she was harassed by some of the network’s biggest names — including prime time anchor Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity. New emails obtained by Mediaite shed further light on the case. In a lawsuit filed on Monday in the Southern District of New York, Areu claims she was harassed by Carlson, Hannity and other employees of the network, and that she was largely barred from appearing after she declined their advances. In an initial response the company said the claims were “completely false.” Over the last several days, records of Areu’s appearances on the network and other publicly available information has undermined some of her claims....

    Fox News host Sean Hannity publicly apologized to his colleague Tucker Carlson after he ostensibly refuted his colleague's point in an interview just before the prime-time hand-off. Following the conclusion of his nightly show Tuesday, Hannity said he did not hear Carlson's full segment after he appeared to disagree with his colleague's claim that Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos profited off the coronavirus pandemic. "I was very clear I support capitalism. If someone is honestly providing goods and services people want, need, and desire I’m fine with that. If they capitalize on tragedy, that’s a different issue and I was very clear. I’ve seen no evidence of that. But if I do, watch out," Hannity...
    Tucker Carlson’s usual show handoff to Sean Hannity tonight got a bit awkward as it really looked like Hannity was arguing against what Carlson was saying in his Carlson’s end-of-show segment. Carlson opened the segment saying the coronavirus shutdowns “indisputably crushed huge parts of the American economy” and now millions of Americans are out of work, before singling out one person who “has become extremely rich, richer than any man in history, from all of this, including a lot of the suffering.” Carlson proceeded to go off on Jeff Bezos after the reporting that Bezos made a whopping $13 billion in one day. He said if that happened years ago, “the Democratic party would have something to say about...
    An apparent disagreement about billionaire businessman Jeff Bezos led to an awkward handoff between the prime time Fox News shows Tuesday night. The transition was preceded by a segment featuring a conversation between Tucker Carlson and The Spectator editor Chadwick Moore about the $13 billion the Amazon founder and CEO added to his net worth Monday. WATCH: “But at least one person has become extremely rich, richer than any man in history from all of this, including a lot of the suffering,” Carlson said after speaking to the suffering endured by millions of Americans because of the coronavirus pandemic. “Now 20 years ago if that had happened, if a captain of industry had made $13 billion in a single...

    Meghan McCain applauded Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Monday for his tough weekend interview with President Donald Trump. As The View reviewed Wallace’s efforts to grill the president on a variety of subjects over the weekend, McCain said it was “interesting to finally watch an interview where the interviewer landed punches” on the president. She likened great political interviews to boxing matches, saying “I always think the purpose is to get your opponent or your person you’re interviewing on the ropes and nervous, which is 100 percent what Chris Wallace did.” She added: I think it was the first time I have really seen President Trump squirm. This is someone who’s clearly not feeling as confident as we have...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity became emotional Sunday reflecting on his conversation with Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr., the father of a 19-year-old black man who was shot and killed last month inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP). In a raw and honest interview with Fox News host Harris Faulkner during 'The Fight for America' special that aired Sunday night, Hannity opened up about his conversation with the grieving father and discussed the impact of his powerful words as a father of two children. "I wondered how this father of color sat with Sean Hannity and you were able to pull so much out of him, it felt like, and then we learned about you," Faulkner said during the segment, delving deep into the state of race relations in...
    Mary Trump made a cheeky dig at President Donald Trump lashed out at his niece and called her a 'mess' following the release of her highly-lauded tell-all memoir.  Trump's niece went after her uncle's fascination with TV ratings with a simple Friday tweet: 5.23 million v. 5.11 million.' The number referred to reported views of Mary interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Thursday versus the reported views of the president's town hall with Fox News' Sean Hannity in June.  She added the hashtag '#seldomseen' in reference to Trump's declaration that she was 'a seldom seen niece.' Mary Trump took to Twitter Friday to cheekily dig at how she had more viewers during her MSNBC interview compared to a Sean Hannity...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity and conservative radio host Larry Elder both jokingly tried to take credit for the fact that civil rights attorney Leo Terrell is voting for President Donald Trump in November. The light-hearted Thursday night “Hannity” segment featured the Fox News host asking Terrell, dubbed “Leo 2.0” by Elder, if he had ever “voted for a Republican for president before?” WATCH: “A good question,” Terrell said. “Here’s my answer as a lawyer. This will be the first time in my life. This will be the first time in my life, Sean Hannity viewers, that I will be voting Republican. Right on your TV program, first time in my life.” “For Donald Trump?” Hannity asked. “For Donald...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity said he believes Robert Mueller could be charged for crimes related to how he carried out his special counsel investigation. Hannity, who frequently derides the investigation into links between the Trump campaign and Russia, made the claim about Mueller, 75, on his radio show Monday afternoon. The television and radio host noted that Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham said he will invite Mueller to testify before his panel and that the former special counsel was "willing" and "capable" to defend the investigation in a Washington Post op-ed over the weekend. "Great, since we already know beyond any reasonable doubt that the Mueller investigation now is a complete fraud, and he needs to now defend...
    Roger Stone Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images File this in the “breaking, but not shocking” news department: Sean Hannity will have “an exclusive interview” with Roger Stone on Monday, July 13, according to a statement provided to Mediaite by Fox News. Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, was convicted of seven counts of lying to Congress and the FBI and witness tampering, and sentenced to forty months in prison. Stone was due to report to prison on Tuesday, but Trump commuted his sentence on Friday. Trump’s decision was sharply criticized by his Democratic opponent Joe Biden , who posted tweet calling Trump “the most corrupt president in modern American history,” and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who penned an op-ed for...
    (CNN)Faced with coronavirus surges in some of the largest states in the country and a public turning dramatically against how he has responded to the crisis, President Donald Trump spent 40 minutes of his Thursday night on the phone with Fox News host Sean Hannity.The "interview" was, as is so often the case when Hannity and Trump talk, a grievance session -- as the President used Hannity's friendly forum to paint a version of reality that doesn't comport with, well, reality.I went through the transcript and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below. 1. "And we can't abolish our police. They want to abolish our police.""No, I don't support defunding the police." -- Joe Biden. And away...
    A team of economists has published a National Bureau of Economic Research (NBER) working paper that accuses Fox News host Sean Hannity of killing thousands of people through “misinformation” about the coronavirus pandemic. The paper, “Misinformation During a Pandemic,” was funded by the Becker Friedman Institute at the University of Chicago, but largely consists of partisan hackery dressed in statistical models to smear a popular pro-Trump voice. To begin with, at least one of the authors of the paper, David Yanagizawa-Drott, appears to dislike President Donald Trump intensely. He complained in 2017 that then-New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady supported the president. He also encouraged protests against the Trump administration in 2017, and again in 2018. In times like these, @Patriots...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity is urging people to wear masks to stop the spread of the coronavirus. In a public service announcement that debuts Thursday night on Fox — posted by Mediaite ahead of its airing — Hannity ticks off the reasons “I choose to do it.” “Alright, so I’ve been saying all along throughout the pandemic, COVID-19, essential employees all across America they never stopped working,” he says in the pitch. “Mask, PPE – it kept them safe and I was right here in the epicenter.” “Every store I went to, everybody was wearing their mask and thankfully at my grocery store nobody got Covid-19 so what did I learn?” Hannity continued. “I don’t have a problem wearing a...
