Hannity: 'Trump Derangement Syndrome Reaches New Heights' With WaPo Headline on Trump & Hurricanes
Paper declares Trump 'complicit' in deadly hurricanes.
Sean Hannity said the mainstream media has reached a new low by blaming President Trump for Hurricane Florence.
He pointed to an column by the Washington Post editorial board titled "Another hurricane is about to batter our coast. Trump is complicit," which pointed to Trump's skepticism of human-induced climate change and his administration's efforts to "dismantle" environmental regulations.
"The president has cemented the GOP’s legacy as one of reaction and reality denial. Sadly, few in his party appear to care," the piece concluded.
In his opening monologue Wednesday, Hannity said the media's Trump derangement syndrome is out of control.
"It is now a full-blown psychosis, it is a psychological level of unhingement I've never seen," Hannity said.
He said the media is completely blinded by their hatred for the president, so they try and blame him for everything, including, now, the weather.
"If your dog bites, if the bee stings, if the baby cries, if you're feeling sad, it's all President Trump's fault," Hannity said. "If he literally cures cancer, they will never give him credit in the media."
He said if the media wasn't so obsessed with pushing false, anti-Trump narratives, they might be able to focus on new bombshell revelations about the "deep state's" efforts to derail Trump's candidacy and presidency, which he called "the biggest abuse of power scandal in our history."
