HANNITY: Media Using President Bush’s Death to ‘Attack Trump’
Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on the mainstream media’s blatant hypocrisy regarding prominent conservatives; saying the press “viciously attacks” Republicans when they are alive, then applaud them “after people died.”
“This is all part of a pattern, isn’t it? The mainstream media viciously attacking any prominent Republican, all while providing cover for their friends in the Democratic party. Reagan was portrayed as a heartless monster, George Bush bashed for his speaking style,” said Hannity.
“Mitt Romney called a sexist because he wanted to hire women… All these attacks are completely disingenuous. When people died, all of sudden they like them. The mainstream media will seemingly forget about their nasty coverage,” he added.
