In his opening monologue tonight, Sean Hannity reacted to the media's meltdown after receiving a "historic beating" at the hands of President Donald Trump yesterday.

He noted that NBC News' Chuck Todd compared Trump to Richard Nixon, CBS' Scott Pelley called out the president for "bluster, bravado, exaggeration and few loose facts," ABC News' Matthew Dowd said he came off as "small and insecure," and CNN's Jack Tapper told Trump to "get to work and stop whining."

Hannity said that Trump has been working, and he simply used Thursday's press conference to defend himself from an "out of control media bias."

"Not only was he being presidential, not only was he being honest, but he was being funny," Hannity said.

He said the press' reaction is just "one huge temper tantrum," because they finally got called out for their bad behavior.

"All the members of the media, they can be bad all they want. It doesn't change the fact how biased, how lazy they are, and how abusive they've been toward the 45th president."
