Sean Hannity has been having a rough time recently. He was completely trounced by Jon Stewart on the Colbert Show, called “Fox News’ dumbest anchor” by a WSJ editor, melted down on Twitter, and CNN’s Brian Stelter accused Hannity of not being a journalist but merely irresponsibly wielding a megaphone. Now, Hannity can add being slammed by an election official to his list of current woes.
The trouble started when Trump warned Hannity that:
“I’ve been hearing about it for a long time,. I know last time you had precincts were there were practically nobody voting for the Republican and I think that’s wrong… people were curious, how is it possible? I hope the Republicans get out there and watch very closely.”
Rather than challenge the claim, Stelter’s criticism was prompted by Hannity merely accepting Trump’s claim that the election in November might be rigged. Stetler claimed Hannity’s failure to question Trump was dangerous:
“Interviewers, even the ones that support the person they’re interviewing, have an obligation to probe further and push back when a candidate says something dangerous. And this is dangerous. Suggesting an election is going to be stolen, this is Third World dictatorship stuff.”
Godfrey let loose on Hannity in a series of 24 numbered tweets.
Probably right about this point Hannity was wishing for a do over, but Godfrey is far from finished.
Now you might think even with different party affiliations, there was still an opportunity to fraud if the officials colluded. You would be wrong.
Essentially, while they would be able to boost the votes of a candidate, they would not be able to remove votes. Thus the accusation that Romney’s zero votes are the result of rigging is baseless.
But Godfrey is far from done. He wants to make sure there is absolutely no question that Hannity and Trump’s accusations are utterly without merit.
One of the people who responded to Godfrey’s tweetstorm was a Fox News employee who actually explained the 100% Obama districts to Hannity.
