With President Donald Trump about to name his second United states supreme court campaigner in a primetime address Monday night, Sean Hannity made a rare trip to Fox News’ afternoon panel show The Five and frequently clashed with one of the network’s few remaining “liberals,” Juan Williams.
During the segment about Trump’s SCOTUS pick, Williams urged special courts could” become a rubber stamp for right-wing plan .” In answer, Hannity shot back,” Where’s the evidence? You say these things and you’re trying to scare the American people .”
But their back-and-forth banter came to a manager subsequently in the present during a discussion about the 2020 election as Hannity denounced the Democrat for having an “agenda” that would fail in the face of Trump. ” You have a Sean Hannity plan ,” Williams told the primetime sun.” I think you’re running this presidency !”
” That is the silliest situation I’ve ever heard ,” Hannity responded, with a smile on his face.” That is what CNN forge report remarks, and they’re lying each night .”
CNN has hardly been the only media channel reporting under Hannity’s role as Trump’s ” shadow ” joint chiefs of staff, as White House advisers referred to him in a Washington Post clause this past April. Earlier in the year, The Daily Beast reported that Hannity had been personally advising Trump to release the so-called Nunes memo. Just yesterday, Hannity reportedly smacked the links with Trump at the president’s New Jersey golf club. And as we learned not long ago, the president and the Fox News host too shared a advocate in Michael Cohen.
Last March, CNN reported that Hannity actually placed a artillery at Williams after a heated on-camera arguing. Harmonizing to unnamed generators, Hannity” even turned on the laser display, inducing a crimson speck to bob around on Williams’ mas .”
” While discussing the issue of pistols, I evidenced my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded pistol in a professional and safe style for educational purposes merely ,” Hannity said in a statement about the incident.” Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was comply. I &# x27; ve had a conceal carry let in five commonwealths for all of my adult life. Any other reading of this is outright fallacious reporting .”
Williams added,” This incident is being sensationalized–everything was under total power throughout, and I never felt like I was put in harm’s highway. It was clear that Sean articulated my safety standards above all else, and we continue to be great friends .”
But that did not to be stopped from firing back, so to speak, on the breath today.
