Sean Hannity called out the mainstream media and the left for putting a decidedly-negative spin on last week's positive economic news. 

In his opening monologue Monday, Hannity played a montage of pundits downplaying President Trump's Friday speech in which he touted "amazing" GDP growth of 4.1 percent, the fastest pace since 2014.

"We're on track to hit the highest annual average growth rate in over 13 years and I will say this right now, and I'll say it strongly: as the trade deals come in one by one, we’re going to go a lot higher than these numbers," said Trump.

The unemployment rate is now at 4.1%, one of its lowest points in years, and Trump also noted falling unemployment rates for African-Americans, Hispanics and women, as well as an increase in manufacturing jobs.

Hannity characterized the reaction as more evidence of the media and the left rooting for the administration to fail. For instance, MSNBC's Joe Scarborough dismissed the economic growth as a continuation of the economy under Barack Obama, laughing at Trump's remarks. 

Hannity told his audience to "buckle up" and prepare for the "insane rhetoric" against President Trump to ramp up in the final three months before the midterm elections. 

"Everybody is going to be smeared. The future of your country is at stake," he warned, explaining that Democrats want to rescind the tax cuts, impeach the president, end investigations into the "deep state," keep ObamaCare, block Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination and implement open-border policies. 

"In 99 days, you the people will decide if the Trump agenda stops. You want that to happen? What did you vote for in 2016? There's a lot on the line here," he said, later discussing the Mueller probe with Alan Dershowitz and Gregg Jarrett.
