Here’s Sean Hannity, dismissing the NYTimes report that President Trump tried to have Bob Mueller fired … followed shortly thereafter by a chilling scene in which Sean Hannity has to remove large amounts of egg from his face.
Sean Hannity: The New York Times is trying to distract you. They say Trump tried to fire Mueller, but our sources aren’t confirming that!— Matt Fuller (@MEPFuller) January 26, 2018
Sean Hannity, minutes later: Alright, yeah, maybe our sources confirm Trump wanted to fire Mueller. But so what? That’s his right. Anywho… pic.twitter.com/yUIt7Un56d
It’s worth noting here that Sean Hannity did confirm that President Trump tried to fire Mueller, which contradicts Trump’s statement this morning from Davos that the Times report is “Fake News.”
But more to the point, we have the President’s biggest cable news defender, by far, expressing outrage at any suggestion that Donald Trump might have attempted to have the Special Counsel fired only to have to backtrack and change the tone of his argument from, “He would never!” to “Eh, so what if he did? What’s the big deal?”
The real important story, however, is that high-speed chase.
God, what a bonehead.
Great show tonight! I loved the way you went from reporting @realDonaldTrump 's obstruction of justice to the car chase and wreck. Was that supposed to be a metaphor?— Queen of Heaven (@Sherriburger) January 26, 2018
