HYPOCRISY ALERT

Hannity Says It’s ‘Despicable’ Pelosi ‘Wants a Political Opponent Locked Up’ – After Supporting ‘Lock Her Up’ for Years

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity, who advises and speaks daily to President Donald Trump, is outraged that Speaker Nancy Pelosi reportedly said of Trump, “I don’t want to see him impeached, I want to see him in prison.”

Thursday night Hannity reacted to the news.

“Based on no actual crimes, she wants a political opponent locked up in prison?” Hannity, incredulous, said. “That happens in banana republics—beyond despicable behavior. And by the way, they would literally turn, in many ways, the USA into a country we no longer recognize.”

The Speaker said it behind closed doors, not on stage at a political campaign rally, not on national TV, but to her caucus who are increasingly pushing for impeachment. It was not a comment that was meant for the general public. Politico, citing several Democratic sources, reported her remarks.

Hannity has literally stood on stage next to President Donald Trump at a campaign rally where the crowd chanted, “Lock her up!” – referring to Hillary Clinton. Based on no actual crimes, Trump and his supporters regularly call for a political opponent to be locked up in prison.

Here’s Hannity pushing for Clinton to be locked up on his Fox News show:
