Sean Hannity’s excuse for not interviewing Stormy Daniels’ attorney, Michael Avenatti, was just blown out of the water by Rudy Giuliani. So why is Hannity continuing to avoid an on-air discussion with Avenatti?
Sean - if it is old news, then why did you have Mr. Giuliani on to discuss it last night and ask him questions about it? Let's have a one on one discussion about the case, what has transpired, and what it means. One street fighter to another. What could possibly go wrong? #myturn— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) May 3, 2018
Avenatti responded to an invitation from Laura Ingraham by saying that Fox has been “dodging” him on a Hannity interview. He even offered to appear with Giuliani.
Thanks but I’ve been really clear as to the next Fox show I will appear on, and that’s Sean’s show. I keep asking and the network keeps dodging me. I’ll even go on with Rudy if need be. What are they afraid of?#myturn https://t.co/QbI3znD6KF— Michael Avenatti (@MichaelAvenatti) May 3, 2018
So who could better balance Giuliani than Avenatti?
Hannity is acting as though talking to Avenatti on the air would be as terrifying as being waterboarded.
After all, we know that a debate with Avenatti, with or without Giuliani, would probably be a big ratings getter. And even though Hannity was back on top in April, he has to be worried about whether Rachel Maddow will beat him again this month.
Sorry, Sean, but you're looking like one big chicken!

Will I get censored if I write “HELL YES!!!!!!!!”.
If you look carefully at a side view of Hannity, you can see a bit of yellow stripe down his back…
Viewership of a Giuliani-Avenatti interview would likely set some kind of record. I’d think Fox would want him to do it, unless THEY are afraid of long-term damage.
