During an interview on Hannity, Donald Trump took yet another swipe at Megyn Kelly’s Fox News presidential debate questions to him. And host Sean Hannity gave Trump a pass.
Before they got to the subject of debates, Hannity attacked President Obama for “viciously mocking” Republican presidential candidates “complaining about the unfair moderators at the CNBC debate.”
“I have never in my life witnessed a more whiny human being than this president,” Hannity declared. “He whines about Fox News, he whines about talk radio… It’s embarrassing that Assad and Putin and the mullahs are kicking sand in our face and I don’t really think that’s funny, especially giving the Iranians nuclear weapons.”
And, of course, even after Trump called President Obama “a great divider,” Hannity didn’t think to point out that it was Trump who wasted so much of Hannity’s air time with utterly bogus and discredited birtherism. Also, Trump has yet to disclose the results of that Hawaii investigation into the subject he claims to have conducted.
Instead, Hannity moved on to the debate over the debates.
HANNITY: You have said you were not going to do the CNBC, I guess Universal, [Hannity appears to mean NBC and Telemundo] debate that they had planned, that you will negotiate directly with the TV networks on debates. Where do you stand now as it relates to debates, moderators going forward? What is Donald Trump’s plan?
TRUMP: Well, honestly, I don’t know why that was even said because I don’t care. I mean, they give me a podium. They’ve asked me some very negative questions, including your Megyn. They’ve asked me very, very disgraceful questions, frankly. And last time with Harwood, the same thing happened. They were inappropriate questions.
And I take them and I do ‘em and I do whatever I have to do, and it comes out just fine. So I don’t really care. I like the idea of debates. I’ve done well in the debates, according to everybody, and according to the polls, I’ve led every debate, number one in every debate, which you know, and I couldn’t say it unless I did. Even CNBC said the last debate, it was their debate, they said I won the debate.
…I don’t really care that much, I’ll be honest. This is more of an issue for other people.
I do say this. The networks are making a fortune with the debates. I think they should give money to the wounded warriors and to the veterans. They are making a fortune.
HANNITY: I agree with that.
TRUMP: They used to have 2 million people watching. Now they’re having 24 and 25 million people watching, even though it is because of Trump, but I won’t say that.
HANNITY: Let me...
TRUMP: But they have 24, 25 million people watching, they should give some of the money to the wounded warriors and to the veterans.
Not only did Trump diss Fox and Hannity’s colleague, Megyn Kelly, but Trump lied about not caring. As almost everyone with an internet connection or a cable subscription knows, Trump threw a major – and very ugly – tantrum over Kelly’s questions.
But Hannity moved on to ask Trump, “Let’s say you become president. Let’s talk about the first hundred days.”
Watch Hannity make appeasing Trump more important than defending Fox or Kelly, below, from the November 3 Hannity.
HANNITY: I agree with that.
I wonder if tRump and Hannity think that FoxNoise should give away the money IT made off that very first debate? Or, the upcoming FoxMonkeyBusiness debate?
And, Sean? You might want to hold back with your smarmy ass-kissing considering it’s been HOW MANY YEARS since you volunteered to be waterboarded for charity? You know, for the “troops’ families?” Okay, granted, that probably wouldn’t have brought in as much cash as what the networks have been making, but still.
Oh. One last point—this to tRump. How much money have YOU and the other candidates brought in through “donations” following your debate participation? Have you considered dipping into YOUR “personal funds” (since you can’t legally use campaign contributions for any purposes other than campaigning and you are this great businessman) to give money to charity? Perhaps a “challenge” to the networks, where you’ll match $1 for every dollar donated by the networks to charities?
Oh, but, you see, that’s NOT how “capitalism” works. Capitalism is ALL about “making money” (to most of the 1%, charity donations are seen as a “tax deduction” to save on taxes)—not “giving it away.”
The Stop Hannity Express says Hannocchio is a self-serving man who uses others to climb to the top of the ladder. Former colleagues who were burned by this clown can attest to it.
NOTE TO HANNITY
We can’t wait until your former friends throw you under the bus, you hypocrite.
Trump disgracefully complains about the ‘disgraceful’ questions he has to answer.
Welcome to Bizarro World.
Uncle Ben (aka Herman Cain 2.0) will also soon fade. The teabaggers’ current infatuation with him will sour when the actual primaries start. No way that the teabaggers are going to put another black man in their White House.
That leaves the Cubans. Big Gulp Marco and Teddie. Desi Arnaz would be so proud.
