Sean Hannity; He Will Have His Reckoning

January 27th, 2018

For about thirty seconds, I actually felt sorry for Sean Hannity. But that couldn’t last.

Hannity opened his show with a strong FOX position that the NY Times lied about the report that Trump had ordered Mueller’s firing last June. Then, near the end of the show, with that shit-eating smirk, said FOX news was now confirming the report. He stuttered and said “Trump’s the president and he can do what he wants.” Then he cut to a car chase. I’m not kidding. It was embarrassing.

Sean Hannity’s transformation from a slightly familiar annoyance  to a stumbling Trumpian sycophant is not unique. The lure of money, approximately $40 million a year according to the New York Times, has darkened many a soul before. But Trump changed all that.

No longer is Hannity simply one of the many media whores, today he is the Pravda-like mouthpiece for a dangerous sociopath whose instability has everyone from John Kelly to Angela Merkel sleeping with one eye open.

Sean Hannity will have a reckoning, but hopefully not at the expense of the nation he purports to love.
