Roy Moore is about to lose Sean Hannity. After a wave of advertiser defections followed his supportive interview with Moore last week and after a fifth, very credible accuser came forward, Hannity has turned on Moore. UPDATED
It’s hard to know just how many advertisers really left the Hannity show in the wake of a boycott effort led by Media Matters. It’s also hard to know how much that weighed on Hannity’s decision to abandon Moore as the evidence mounts against him.
“We should be troubled by two things in this case,” Hannity said during an announcement at the end of his show. One, was Moore’s inconsistency about dating teenagers during his interview with Hannity and the other was Moore’s claim not to know Beverly Young Nelson, his fifth accuser, who has produced a comment from him in her yearbook: “To a sweeter more beautiful girl I could not say ‘Merry Christmas.’ Love, Roy Moore, D.A.”
HANNITY: For me, the judge has 24 hours. He must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed. You must remove any doubt. If you can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race. This country has way too many issues and problems. The American people deserve 100% truth and honesty. We need correct answers the first time on issues this serious. Judge Moore, you owe that to the people of Alabama, the Republican party that you represent and to the country which is suffering under so many problems. We deserve answers, insist on answers. And truth.
Well, better late than never, I suppose. But before anyone gets warm and fuzzy about Hannity, let’s recall that this same guy demanding “truth and honesty” from Moore is a guy who has deliberately been hyping the baseless Uranium One conspiracy theory and that followed his hideous exploitation of a murdered young man, Seth Rich, into another baseless conspiracy theory.

4:36 PM Update: Media Matters has a very plausible explanation for Hannity's 24-hour ultimatum: that he's either waiting for a lead from Donald Trump (who held a press conference today) or that Hannity knows what's coming and has decided to go along. As it happens, Trump made no major announcement about Moore. However, Moore is holding a press conference at the top of the hour. I'll bet dollars to doughnuts he announces he's getting out.
“Most of the focus in Alabama right now is the upcoming Iron Bowl football game next week between Auburn-Alabama with the winner going to the SEC championship game. After that’s over then they’ll start paying more attention to the election.”
Yes, indeed they will doors17. After the Auburn vs. Alabama game next week, the million $ question will be the following: will enough Alabama voters “punt” on Roy Moore?
The comments from Mitch McConnell and other Republicans asking Moore to drop out might backfire and give Moore voters an excuse saying, I wasn’t going to vote for him, but after the attacks from the Washington establishment and the liberal media telling us not to vote for him I changed my mind and voted for him.

When faced with the prospect of following Bildo O’Reilly out the door, KKKlannity turned on his BFF Diddling Roy Moore.
Pie is not a fan of both McConnell or Ryan, however Pie knows the GOP butters his bread, financially. The GOP, in the past, has invited Pie to various political events, and paid him, to speak.
The Fox News Revolt Express says Pie is a self-serving fraud who will sacrifice his own family to keep his job at this demonic network. No other network would hire Pie, if the suits fired his fat azz. He is under pressure to keep his advertisers from fleeing the network.
The employees at this worthless network enjoy watching Pie sweat. They would be thrilled if Pie was dumped.
NOTE TO HANNITY
Kevin and Sam Sorbo are fools do to business with you. For an Irishman, you seem to have the worst luck. Their film, Let There Be Light will suffer because of you.
The Second Floor is livid, but you already know it. No one really likes you at this satanic network. They talk behind your back like a rabid dog.
