Hannity: 'Shameful' Media Using Hurricane Harvey to Smear President Trump

posted by admin - 8.31.17

Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Wednesday night, Sean called-out the destroy-Trump media for politicizing yet another tragedy to smear President Trump; this time using Hurricane Harvey to slander the President.

“While the media politicizes yet another tragedy, President Trump is once again leading the way on this recovery effort along with the Governor, Lieutenant Governor of Texas, and local officials and offering his full support,” said Hannity.

“Unfortunately, the destroy-Trump media, they won’t focus on how hard the President and good politicians in Texas are working for all of these flood victims. Instead, the abusively biased press is stealing a page from the democratic playbook […] Never let a good crisis go to waste,” he added.

“Right now, millions of Americans are facing carnage and heartbreak caused by what may end up being the most expensive natural disaster in the history of this country,” said Hannity. “The media, seemingly, they don’t care at all. They’re using this as an opportunity to go after the President.”

Sean ripped the mainstream press for using the unfolding tragedy as a weapon against the President, calling the Commander-in-Chief “unfit” and questioning his “empathy” for storm victims.

“This is way beyond petty, this is beyond disgusting, beyond shameful, even for the destroy-Trump media,” said Sean. “This is what the media does. They always find a way, even during a tragedy, to go after the President. Try and discredit the President, de-legitimize him, the First Lady, his family, his advisers, anybody that likes him and is associated with him.”

“They’ve wanted from day one to damage, to destroy the President with every chance they get and if they can’t find one they’ll make up a reason, regardless of what he does,” he added.
