Hannity: 'Pathetically Predictable' Mainstream Media Never Misses an Opportunity to Smear Trump
In his opening monologue Friday night, Sean Hannity said most of the mainstream media is so preoccupied pushing their false Trump-Russia collusion narrative that they are missing one of the biggest political scandals in modern U.S. history.
He pointed out that President Trump has fully cooperated with Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, which has not found any evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.
Hannity noted that the media breathlessly ran with a New York Times report that Trump ordered the firing of Mueller in June and only backed down after his White House counsel refused to carry out the instruction and threatened to resign.
Trump dismissed the Times report as "fake news."
"Facts, truth? We've been telling you for a long time it doesn't matter to the liberal mainstream media," Hannity said. "It's why last night, when The New York Times posted their story ... the media goes into a frenzy. They're foaming at the mouth, they completely lost it."
He said the media will never miss an opportunity to smear the president, which he called "pathetically predictable."
He argued that's one reason the media has been largely oblivious to bombshell revelations that suggest some Justice Department and FBI officials had a clear pro-Hillary Clinton, anti-Trump bias during the 2016 election.
"From what we've seen, it's shaping up to be the biggest scandal in American history, and they have missed the boat," Hannity said. "This is going to make Watergate look like an afterthought."
