Fox News’ Sean Hannity hasn’t hidden his boy-crush for presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump. In fact, he said during an interview following Trump’s awful press conference on the missing money meant to go for Veterans that he will be voting for the billionaire candidate.
To be sure, Trump’s press conference was pathetic. He even called a reporter a ‘sleaze’ while bemoaning the media for daring to ask him questions.
What’s really interesting about his interview with Hannity is that the Fox host, who is part of the media, joined in with Trump to bash the media.
Hannity didn’t think reporters should ask questions about Trump’s fundraising operations. However, some of Trump’s checks — more than a dozen — were sent on the same day the Republican candidate was interviewed by Washington Post. The Post has been questioning Trump’s alleged $6 million in donations raised for Veterans.
“What? Do they think you need the money? You’re gonna steal it?” Hannity asked, according to Mediaite.
“This is not an isolated incident,” Hannity then noted a New York Times story about Trump’s treatment of women, according to Talking Points Memo. “I said in 2008, journalism is dead, you’re confronting this bias, institutional bias, and they don’t seem to like it.”
Trump told Hannity that “the press really dishonest” and added that political reporters are “bad people.”
Trump labels people and that bodes well with his supporters. For example, “Crooked Hillary” and “Crazy Bernie.” Labels stick to people and Trump is a salesman. So now, reporters are ‘bad people’ who, he seems to forget, are exercising their First Amendment rights.
Trump wants to lead the most powerful country on Earth yet can’t take a question from a reporter without demeaning him or her. He’s a delicate flower.
Hillary Clinton responded to Trump’s news conference on the donations, saying, “The problem here is the difference between what Donald Trump says and what Donald Trump does.”
He’s bragged for months about raising $6 million for vets and donating $1 million himself, but it took a reporter to shame him into actually making the contribution,” she added.
