For the last five years Sean Hannity has been known as Trump’s biggest ass kisser. His on-air praise for the orange buffoon would embarrass any normal person who values his or her self-respect, but not Hannity.
However, in a new book by CNN’s Brian Stelter, called “Hoax: Donald Trump, Fox News, and the Dangerous Distortion of Truth,” Hannity has a far different view of the pathological liar in private.
“Early on in the Trump age, Hannity gained weight and vaped incessantly, which some members of his inner circle blamed on Trump-related stress.
“The book, an excerpt of which was published in Vanity Fair on Thursday, says Hannity told a colleague, “If you were hearing what I’m hearing, you’d be vaping too.”This exposes Hannity for what I knew he was. He’s a little man, physically and mentally, who will do anything for money. When he’s on camera with Trump he is acting, which means that we cannot believe anything he says, and questions he offers Trump are discussed prior to the broadcast to save Trump the embarrassment of appearing to be what he is, a poorly educated man who cannot think clearly and accurately.
Stelter had multiple sources from inside Hannity’s circle who offered the Fox News personality’s true evaluation of DJT.”‘Hannity would tell you, off-off-off the record, that Trump is a batshit crazy person,’ one of his associates said,” Stelter wrote, adding that another friend told him, “Hannity has said to me more than once, ‘he’s crazy.'”
Hannity also told a colleague that on his calls with Trump, “I barely get a word in,” the book says.
I shouldn’t be surprised. I know from sources inside the Capitol Building that many Republicans in the House and Senate share Hannity’s opinions about Trump while supporting him in print and on television.
This also confirms once and for all the description of the Trump family in Mary Trump’s tell-all book, “Too Much and Never Enough: How my Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man.
My question is, “how could anyone lower themselves to serve a man who has no interest in America or the American people and is using his position solely to enhance his personal wealth?” I couldn’t set aside my principles and lose my dignity for money. I would never be a traitor to my country for any reason, especially money.
