Sean Hannity spent another hour playing lapdog to Donald Trump last night. But what really seemed to excite him was the prospect of Trump putting “everything on the table” to attack Hillary Clinton.
In the first part of the interview, Hannity prodded Trump to reveal his mean-spirited nickname for Clinton. Which Trump promised to reveal on a future Hannity show. But Hannity was obviously dying to hear it right then. From the Fox News transcript:
HANNITY: Have you thought of a nickname for her yet?
TRUMP: I have, actually. I’ll release it on one of your next shows, but I don’t want to do it.
HANNITY: I think they want to hear it now.
(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
TRUMP: We have some good ones. We have some good ones.
HANNITY: But you do have a name picked out for Hillary?
TRUMP: Well, you know, I’d like to use “lying,” but we already used it for Ted. We don’t want to use it twice.
TRUMP: No, I have—I actually have, I think, a pretty good name. You know, I’ve come up with some pretty good names during this campaign. And we have a pretty good one, I think, but we’ll try it out here first in about a month. Is that OK?
HANNITY: All right. We’ll come back in a month.
Later, in another segment, Hannity was obviously delighted with Trump's upcoming ruthlessness to Clinton:
HANNITY: I think you’re holding it close to the vest how hard you’re going to hit.
TRUMP: Oh, you have no idea. You have no idea.
HANNITY: And if they hit back, is everything on the table?
TRUMP: Yes. I don’t care. I mean, to me it doesn’t matter.
HANNITY: That’s the way it should be?
Sean Hannity and Donald Trump: two peas in a hate-mongering pod of viciousness.
By the way, despite Trump’s claim that he’ll “do fantastic” with minorities, I only saw a sea of white faces in this audience.
