A slew of new accusations of sexual assault and misconduct by Donald Trump came out Wednesday night. Yet Fox not only went with a pre-recorded Hannity show, the network included an unintentionally hilarious discussion in which Hannity attempted to exonerate Trump by comparing him to Bill Clinton and claiming Trump had only engaged in raunchy talk, not predatory behavior.
Hannity essentially reiterated what he’s been saying since the Access Hollywood tape – and which just happens to echo the words of his beloved Trump: that he only engaged in lewd talk whereas Bill Clinton engaged in actual sexual assault (never mind that Trump talked about engaging in sexual assuault).
But Wednesday night, four new accusations alleged horribly inappropriate behavior by Trump;
The New York Times reported:
According to Ms. [Jessica] Leeds, Mr. Trump grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt.
Ms. [Rachel] Crooks was a 22-year-old receptionist at Bayrock Group, a real estate investment and development company in Trump Tower in Manhattan, when she encountered Mr. Trump outside an elevator in the building one morning in 2005.
Aware that her company did business with Mr. Trump, she turned and introduced herself. They shook hands, but Mr. Trump would not let go, she said. Instead, he began kissing her cheeks. Then, she said, he “kissed me directly on the mouth.”
From the Palm Beach Post:
“All of a sudden I [Mindy McGillivray] felt a grab, a little nudge. I think it’s Ken’s camera bag, that was my first instinct. I turn around and there’s Donald. He sort of looked away quickly."
We walked into that room alone, and Trump shut the door behind us. I [Natasha Stoynoff] turned around, and within seconds, he was pushing me against the wall, and forcing his tongue down my throat.
Meanwhile several former Miss Teen USA contestants told BuzzFeed they recall Trump walking in on them while they were changing during the pageant.
But most of that news apparently broke after Hannity recorded his show. Either that, or he ignored it when he decided to do his “words/actions” routine again.
HANNITY: Nobody’s perfect. But there’s a big difference between saying something, locker-room talk, and dropping your pants in front of a woman if you’re the attorney general or having sex in the Oval Office and lying about it or assaulting women. Those are actions. The media, as we now know in the back pocket of the Clintons, they never wanted to talk about that. Donald Trump had to do the vetting himself.
Later, Hannity asked guest Taya Kyle: “Do you think most people see the double standard and the difference between words and actions?”
I can’t wait to hear what differences Hannity sees Thursday night.
The other guest was Carrie Prejean. Remember her? She’s the gay-marriage opposing, first runner up of the Miss USA pageant who was dethroned by then-pageant owner Donald Trump after a sex tape of her, when she was a teenager, was found.
Since then Prejean has become a fervent Trump supporter. After Wednesday’s news, video of this segment may be her latest dishonor.
PREJEAN: I am so proud of him. He is stronger and standing taller than ever and he is not backing down.
Donald Trump is the only one that is gonna expose the corruption of the left and the media and the only one that is going to turn this country around.
While we wait to see Hannity spin this latest embarrassment for his significant other, watch the video below, from the October 12, 2016 Hannity.
And take particular pleasure in Hannity’s sanctimonious self-righteousness as he claims Trump only engaged in “locker-room talk.”
His political downfall on November 8th will be epic and Shakespearean.
