Hannity Blasts Mainstream Media: ‘You Have Zero Credibility Left’ (Mediaite)
Before airing his highly-anticipated interview with Donald Trump Jr., Sean Hannity took the opportunity to address the media he knows is watching his show Tuesday night.
“For all the members of the Destroy Trump Media who have to tune into my show tonight,” he began, “get out your pad and your pen. You may actually learn a thing or two and we have a message for you, so maybe you want to take notes. And we’re gonna lay out the real scandals that you’re not covering that you should be covering. If you were actual journalists, you would be.”
In his opening monologue, Hannity read Trump Jr.’s emails between him and Rod Goldstone along with his statements. He also noted that Trump’s legal team have suggested that the meeting between him and that Russian lawyer could have been a “set-up” to incriminate the then-presidential candidate’s son and that the lawyer is connected to Fusion GPS, which was the opposition research firm that produced the debunked Trump dossier and has “several ties” to Democrats including Hillary Clinton allies and Planned Parenthood.
“So, from looking at the facts,” Hannity stated, “a friend of the Trumps offered to coordinate a meeting to share opposition research on Hillary Clinton, which Donald Trump Jr. agreed to. Nothing came of it because there was no information exchanged and it ended there.”
He claimed that Democrats and the media are “hysterical” over this story, but they have “completely ignored an example of actual election interference” because “it involves a Democrat.”
