In a desperate attempt to defend failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump on his show Monday evening, Fox News host Sean Hannity only succeeded in humiliating himself and the Donald as he ran through the 30+ investigations and crimes of the ex-president that could result in serious prison time if he’s convicted.
Mediaite notes that Hannity kicked off his show by suggesting that Democrats were obsessed with investigating Trump:
“Instead of trying to fix the economy or dare talk about it, or the border, or the fentanyl or opioid crisis, or the crime crisis, Democrats have been wasting all of their time and billion dollars of your taxes with one investigation after investigation into all things Donald Trump,” Hannity said. “This has been going on now for years.”
But the graphic Hannity ran as he railed against Trump being under the microscope for his alleged wrongdoings severely undercut the message he was attempting to convey.
The list, as you’ll see in the video, was voluminous, and yet the Fox host added this kicker:
“After all of this, Trump hasn’t been charged with any crime whatsoever, and they are trying hard, but there has been nothing. That’s because the partisan Democrats in charge of all of these witch hunts, they’re not investigating crimes. They’re investigating a person in a blatant attempt to smear, slander, destroy him and destroy his supporters. It’s the old Soviet Union saying: ‘show me the man, I’ll find you the crime.’ Except, they haven’t actually found a crime yet, so I guess they’ll make that up too.”
It didn’t take long before Twitter users mocked Hannity for doing more harm than good in his efforts to rescue his political savior.
