My, my, my but “tough guy” Sean Hannity has such thin widdle skin. CNN’s Brian Stelter called out Hannity’s hackery again this week. And Hannity reacted like the consummate professional he is… not.
You may recall that Stelter has ripped Hannity a few times lately. Last month, Stelter blasted Hannity as “unpatriotic” for promoting Donald Trump’s bogus fear mongering about a “rigged” election. Not long after, Stelter ripped Hannity a new one, this time for promoting baseless conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health.
On Tuesday, Stelter took another dig at Hannity, this time by reminding Stelter’s 376,000 Twitter followers what Hannity had tweeted to him three days after former Fox host Gretchen Carlson filed her lawsuit for sexual harassment against Roger Ailes: “Brian talk to the hundreds of woman at Fox that I talked to this week both on air and off. They say it all BS.”
Also on Tuesday, Fox all but admitted Carlson’s “BS” was true when it settled her suit for $20 million and issued a public apology.
Once again, Hannity responded petulantly. Media Matters caught him whining on his radio show:
HANNITY: CNN needs to hire back poor Dr. Drew, and they probably need to fire that idiot pipsqueak Brian Stelter, who said anybody that raised a question about Hillary’s health was a conspiratorial thinker—theorist.
In the first place, Stelter did not say “anybody that raised a question about Hillary’s health was a conspiratorial thinker.” Stelter said that Hannity had proved, by virtue of the fact that he had not interviewed people who were present during the incidents in question, that he was “not interested in the truth.”
In fact, Stelter was validated Tuesday night when Hannity allowed Herman Cain to “diagnose” Clinton’s coughing fit on the air.
Secondly, for a “pipsqueak,” Stelter sure seems to be having an outsized effect on Hannity.

I wonder if something similar may not happen to the bully called Trump during the debates (assuming the latter are conducted professionally).
It always amazes me just how thin-skinned and over-sensitive these loud, supposedly tough guys like Hannity, BOR and Trump are. In reality, they are nothing more than dishonest, fragile, insecure egomaniacs.
Grandpa Hannocchio should be worried about what’s coming down the pipeline regarding his role at this House of Demons called Fox “News” Channel. He will fall from grace, like his mentor, Nixon Trainee Ailes. He will bring shame to Merri Jill, his kids, nieces and nephews. His friends will distance themselves from him. It’s coming.
Coming down the pipeline:
1. More exits at Fox “News” Channel.
2. Another lawsuit filed.
3. A prominent Fox “News” mouthpiece sings like a canary and drops names.
4. Another big, BIG shocker involving this hideous network. We mean BIG!
6. Criminal investigation.
8. A nervous breakdown on the air.
9. Divorce filed.
NOTE TO MURDOCHS
You have some serious explaining to do with the university and college administrations regarding the student interns at Fox News Channel. If we were you, we focus our attention on the female intern students. If you get our drift.
