Speaking during his opening monologue from Helsinki Monday, Hannity slammed the mainstream media’s full-fledged assault on President Trump; saying they simply can’t keep up with the President as he “moves at the speed of Trump.”
“President Trump is just not slowing down, and some people in the media are having a hard time dealing with the fact that he moves so fast; moving at the speed of Trump. This was the President’s 21st visit to a foreign country in just 18 months,” said Sean.
“After today’s one-on-one meeting with Vladimir Putin, the two leaders held a joint press conference,” he added. “The meeting comes just days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the indictments of twelve Russian agents who were accused of hacking the DNC.”
“Many on the left want you to believe this alleged interference is a shocking turn of events, but we all know Russian election meddling isn’t new at all,” said Sean.

HELSINKI HUDDLE: Trump and Putin Meet Face-to-Face in Historic Summit
President Trump met Russian President Vladimir Putin behind closed doors in Helsinki Monday; discussing a wide range of issues including Syria, terrorism, and allegations of Kremlin-influenced meddling during the 2016 race for the White House.
According to Fox News, the two leaders huddled in Finland as the President predicted an “extraordinary relationship” with Putin.
“I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship,” Trump said, sitting next to Putin at the presidential palace in Helsinki. “Getting along with Russia is a good thing, not a bad thing.”
“The president met with Putin after sparring for the better part of the past week with traditional U.S. allies — first with NATO nations over their levels of defense spending, and later with British Prime Minister Theresa May over her ‘Brexit’ strategy, though he seemed to patch things up before leaving London,” writes Fox.
The meeting comes just days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced a new string of indictments against 12 Russian agents over their “hacking” of the 2016 race.

RAND PAUL: Helsinki Summit Critics Motivated by ‘DISLIKE of the PRESIDENT’
Senator Rand Paul slammed the “pro-war” critics of President Trump’s historic Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin Monday; saying his GOP detractors were motivated by their “dislike of the President.”
The Senator praised the President’s face-to-face meeting with the Russian leader just hours after Trump met with Putin in the Finnish capital, saying “small steps” towards a thaw in relations with another nuclear superpower was a good thing for both countries.
“We’re going to talk to the president about some small steps in order to try to thaw the relations between our countries,” said Paul.
“Republicans that are making the criticism are either the pro-war Republicans like (Sen. John) McCain and (Sen. Lindsey) Graham or the anti-Trump ones like (Sen. Ben) Sasse,” he added. “They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the president.”
