Hannity’s Inane Praise for Trump’s Ridiculous Lie

Hannity’s Inane Praise for Trump’s Ridiculous Lie June 23, 2017

Donald Trump made a fool and a liar of himself with his tweet about how James Comey better hope there aren’t tapes of their conversations, but professional Trump lickspittle Sean Hannity bizarrely thinks it’s some stroke of strategic brilliance.


SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I’m sorry, this was one of the most brilliant, strategic, doubt-inducing, mind-messing tweets in the history of mankind, because he basically said to Comey, “Well, if there’s tapes, you’re in trouble with the deep state,” it was also a nice shot at them.

Uh, what? He didn’t say anything about the “deep state” (or any other cliche suddenly popular on the far-right fringe. And where is there even a shred of evidence that the tweet induced any doubt or messed with Comey’s mind in any way? His response was plain as day. He said good, I hope there are and I hope they’ll be released. Doesn’t exactly sound like he was intimidated or doubtful in any way. After all, he knew he was telling the truth and that if there were recordings, they would prove that he was doing so.

Hannity is a partisan hack, which is all he’s ever been. Like all partisan hacks, to whatever extent he is capable of being reasonable at all, he simply turns it off whenever he needs to in order to preserve his preferred narrative.
