It didn’t take long for Fox’s Sean Hannity to address RINO Liz Cheney’s attempt to smear the popular conservative primetime host. Cheney publicly read a text message by Hannity to then President Trump’s Chief of Staff, Mark Meadows, encouraging him to contact the President and condemn the ensuing riot that was taking place at the Capital on January 6th.
Hannity wasted little time Tuesday evening during his opening monologue telling his viewers about Cheney’s “weak attempt to smear” him. “Last night, in a weak attempt to smear yours truly, and presumably, President Trump, Congresswoman Cheney presented one of my text messages from January 6th to Mark Meadows,” Hannity stated.
“I said to Mark Meadows the exact same thing I was saying live on the radio at the time and on TV that night, on January 6th and well beyond January 6th,” he continued. “I’m an honest, straightforward person. I say the same thing in private that I say to all of you.”
In an apparent attempt to suggest that something nefarious was afoot on January 6th, the Democrat controlled House Committee publicly released a series of text messages. These messages were in regards to the day of the Capitol riot, between then White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows and three Fox News hosts, urging Trump to issue a formal statement condemning the riot along with telling his supporters to immediately leave the area.
The Fox host also took direct aim at his progressive critics’ attempt to smear the 59-year old staunch conservative by falsely reporting about the matter, saying that anyone who reads his text message, listens to his radio broadcasts, or tunes into his primetime evening show on Fox will realize he’s been consistent from the moment the riot began on January 6th and the days that followed. Those following Hannity would know he has continually condemned those who started the rioting, and those yet to be named individuals who facilitated the rioting.
“Every good, decent, honorable American would condemn all violence and urge any protesters that want to go down that road,” Hannity told listeners on January 6th. “I see a lot of older people, moms and dads and families and stuff, but there’s always going to be the agitators and some of these groups.”
Hannity added, “We have to protect every single elected member of the Congress and Senate. This is not politics. They deserve to be protected. The world, our enemy, saw weakness and a vulnerability that should never exist in our nation’s Capitol. We need to fix that immediately for everybody’s sake. We all need answers on what went on a lack wrong and how did this happen and how do we prevent it from ever happening again.”
1/6 CMTE’S POLITICAL AGENDA: The House committee investigating January 6th has been political from the start! It’s clear their investigation is more about playing politics than keeping the Capitol safe. @RepJimBanks, @DBongino & @GeraldoRivera will weigh in TONIGHT on “Hannity.”— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) December 15, 2021
The conservative icon then circled back to Cheney, stating that the once respected Republican knows the truth regarding his position, but Cheney “doesn’t seem to care.”
“She is interested in one thing and one thing only: smearing Trump and purging him from the party,” said Hannity.
The primetime host ended the segment by firing back at Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.) who heads up the Inquisition after McGovern publicly advised Hannity to use his huge platform to “tell the American people the truth, just like he was privately texting Mark Meadows the truth on that terrible day.”
Hannity’s response; “Hey, Jimbo, I have no idea who the hell you are!”
