Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on recent allegations of sexual assault against former Vice President Joe Biden; saying the New York Times was caught “stealth-editing” a story on the accusations.
“The New York Times finding even more ways to destroy their credibility. They were caught stealth-editing a story about a serious sexual assault allegation against Joe Biden by a former staffer. The Times largely dismissed the allegation, running cover for Quid Pro Quo Joe,” said Hannity.
“The Times updated the story removing any mentions of Biden’s long history of inappropriate touching… The double-standard couldn’t be any more obvious. Where are all the ‘I Believe Hers?’” he asked.

BERNIE’S PLAN: Sanders Prepared to ‘Leverage’ US Aid to Stop Israeli Government’s ‘Racism’
2020 presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders escalated his war-of-words with the Israeli government this week; saying he is prepared to “leverage” US aid to end the Jewish State’s “racism” against Palestinians.
“The United States government gives a whole lot of money to Israel, and I think we can leverage that money to end some of the racism that we have recently seen in Israel,” Sanders said.
“The fault is not all with Israel, you have very poor and corrupt Palestinian leadership, but what the goal of the United States has got to be is to bring people in the region together, the Palestinians and the Israelis to create a kind of workable peace which works for both parties, not just one,” he added.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly rejected Ilhan Omar’s anti-Israeli legislation Tuesday; ending her quest to boycott the Jewish State in a lopsided 398-to-17 landslide.
“The 398-to-17 vote, with five members voting present, came after a debate that was equally lopsided; no one in either party spoke against the measure. The House’s two most vocal backers of the boycott movement — Representatives Rashida Tlaib of Michigan and Ilhan Omar of Minnesota, freshman Democrats and the first two Muslim women in Congress — did not participate in the floor debate,” reports the New York Times.
“However, earlier in the day, Ms. Tlaib, who is Palestinian-American, delivered an impassioned speech in defense of the boycott movement. She branded Israel’s policies toward Palestinians ‘racist’ and invoked American boycotts of Nazi Germany, among others, as an example of what she described as a legitimate economic protest to advance human rights around the world,” adds the Times.
“I stand before you as the daughter of Palestinian immigrants, parents who experienced being stripped of their human rights, the right to freedom of travel, equal treatment,” said Tlaib. “So I can’t stand by and watch this attack on our freedom of speech and the right to boycott the racist policies of the government and the state of Israel.”
The bill supported the BDS -or Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions- movement; a push to boycott Israeli goods and services to support Palestinian statehood.
“Americans of conscience have a proud history of participating in boycotts to advocate for human rights abroad including … boycotting Nazi Germany from March 1933 to October 1941 in response to the dehumanization of the Jewish people in the lead-up to the Holocaust,” Omar said in the resolution introduced Tuesday.
Congressman Lee Zeldin slammed the bill, saying “Israel is our best ally in the Mid East; a beacon of hope, freedom & liberty, surrounded by existential threats. Shame on Rep @Ilhan Omar for bringing her hateful twist on that reality to House Foreign today, propping up the BDS movement & blaming Israel for all of its challenges.”
BIDEN GOES OFF: Joe Snaps at Reporters for Asking Questions About Hunter Biden
Former Vice President Joe Biden snapped at journalists on the campaign trail in recent days, with reporters increasingly asking questions over his son Hunter’s overseas business deals -particularly in regards to the Ukraine.
“I wonder whether you have a comment on this report on a court filing out of Arkansas that your son Hunter just made you a grandfather again,” asked Fox News Channel’s Peter Doocy.
“No. That’s a private matter, I have no comment. But only you would ask that. You’re a good man. You’re a good man. Classy,” fired-back Biden.
“How many times have you ever spoken to your son about his overseas business dealing,” asked another reporter.
“Here’s what I know. I know Trump deserves to be investigated, he’s violating every basic norm of a president!” Biden deflected.
