Trump Minister of Propaganda, Sean Hannity, Lashes Out at Media On the Air in the Stupidest of Ways

(Before It's News)

Can we arrange for Katrina Pierson, Sean Hannity, and anyone else who is drinking Donald Trump’s bath water to get into some sort of class to literally teach them what the use of the word “literally” means?

Trump’s groveling Minister of Propaganda brought his angst-y act to “Fox and Friends” Tuesday morning, lashing out at the liberal media and misusing words, as only one of Trump’s lobotomized minions can.

“There’s a double standard in everything. Mike Pence said to me the other night that they’re playing two on one. The media is so in the tank, so on board for Hillary, they’re so abusively biased,” the Fox News host said during a telephone interview on “Fox & Friends.”

Hannity took particular umbrage with a segment on CNN’s “Reliable Sources” on Sunday, referring to its host Brian Stelter as a “little pipsqueak” who “allowed this arrogant professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism, to talk about Donald Trump being a demagogue and demagogues like Trump become dictators. That’s the type of coverage that CNN offers in this presidential race as they literally kiss Hillary Clinton’s ass and Obama’s ass every day.”

I’ll give Hannity this: With the exception of Fox News, cable and network media are firmly in the Clinton Camp, but then, that’s to be expected. This is not a new thing that just emerged in this election season. That, however, doesn’t translate into grounds for using the word “literally” in the way he did. It literally makes him sound like a fool.

Fox News, on the other hand, has been firmly on the Trump Train from the very beginning, helping to squeeze out more qualified candidates, in favor of Ailes’ pal, and of course, the ratings that chaos brings.

For Hannity or anyone with Fox News to pretend to be the standard bearers for freedom and the American way is obscene. Were they that concerned with keeping the nation from falling, they would have covered the primaries and the legitimate candidates far more evenly and honestly.

Stelter’s guest, John Huey, who was editor in chief at Time Inc. from 2006 to 2012, was a fellow at Harvard Kennedy School’s Shorenstein Center on Media, Politics and Public Policy in 2013.

So Huey is literally more qualified to comment on the race and the candidates than Hannity.

Hannity will be having a crotch-sniffing event, coyly billed as a “town hall” with Trump and was on the morning show to promote that event, when his mini-meltdown occurred.
