Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean weighed-in on the Democrats’ latest anti-Trump obsession; saying they care more about “bashing the President than literally anything else.”
“It’s more clear than ever that Democrats care more about bashing this President than literally anything else… One of the world’s worst terrorists is dead, the mob in the media, the Democratic Party just seems distraught,” said Hannity.
“This is another political hit-job to undermine the President. It gives the Mullahs in Iran another talking point,” he added. “How did that Biden-Obama bribe work out for any of us? The answer: It was a disaster. Now the President is cleaning up their mess.”

CHAOS IN IRAN: Soleimani Funeral Procession Stampede Leaves 40 Dead, Hundreds Injured
Chaos erupted in southeast Iran Tuesday after a stampede at the funeral procession of General Soleimani left at least 40 dead and hundreds injured.
“At least 40 Iranians were crushed to death Tuesday in a stampede that erupted during the funeral for Qassem Soleimani, the general killed last week in a U.S. airstrike, the country’s state media is reporting,” reports Fox News.
“The gory episode in Soleimani’s hometown of Kerman, which also reportedly left more than 200 injured, came as the U.S. Maritime Administration is warning ships across the Middle East to be on alert for possible retaliatory attacks from Iran,” adds Fox.
“Unfortunately as a result of the stampede, some of our compatriots have been injured and some have been killed during the funeral processions,” Pirhossein Koulivand, the head of Iran’s emergency medical services, told state media.
A similar incident occurred in 1989 at the funeral of Ayatollah Khomeini, when his body was toppled from his coffin on live television.

DEVELOPING: Iraqi Parliament Votes to Expel US Troops, Trump Threatens New Sanctions If Enacted
Iraq’s Parliament voted Sunday to expel the remaining 5,000 US troops from the country following an American airstrike on an Iranian General in Baghdad; further escalating tensions in the region.
“The Iraqi government has an obligation to end the presence of all foreign forces on Iraqi soil and prevent it from using Iraqi lands, waters, and airspace or any other reason,” Iraqi Parliament Speaker Mohammed al-Halboosi said in an address to lawmakers before the vote.
“The United States is disappointed by the action taken today in the Iraqi Council of Representatives. While we await further clarification on the legal nature and impact of today’s resolution, we strongly urge Iraqi leaders to reconsider the importance of the ongoing economic and security relationship between the two countries and the continued presence of the Global Coalition to Defeat ISIS,” State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus said. “We believe it is in the shared interests of the United States and Iraq to continue fighting ISIS together. This administration remains committed to a sovereign, stable, and prosperous Iraq.”
“We’ve spent a lot of money in Iraq,” Trump told journalists aboard Air Force One. “We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build. … We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it.”
