Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Tuesday night, Sean weighed-in on Nancy Pelosi’s stunning behavior during the State of the Union Address; calling her actions “one of the most classless things ever done.”
“What a night this has been… I have seen a lot of these speeches over the years, perhaps tonight is the best I’ve ever seen. Every American should be proud of their country… On one side you had the Do Nothing Democrats, they’ve offered nothing but hate and rage,” said Hannity.
“The President is pushing freedom, prosperity, and security… The country is thriving and we’re highly respected all over the world. At the end of the speech, Pelosi ripped up her copy; one of the most classless things ever done in the history of the State of the Union,” he added.

ANOTHER NO SHOW: As Impeachment Fantasy Collapses, Al Green Says He Won’t Attend State of the Union
Impeachment-obsessed Congressman Al Green confirmed Tuesday his plan to boycott Donald Trump’s State of the Union Address; saying he won’t attend a speech delivered by a “bigoted President.”
“Because of an impeached, reckless, ruthless, lawless, shameless, corrupt, & unapologetically bigoted president – who is still engaging in a coverup, the state of the House, the state of the Senate, and the #StateOfTheUnion are divided. I will NOT attend,” posted Green on social media.

I will NOT attend #SOTU2020.

Three other House Democrats announced their decision to boycott Trump’s address this week.
“A third House Democrat announced plans on Monday to boycott President Trump‘s Tuesday State of the Union address, which will take place a day before the Senate is expected to acquit the president in his impeachment trial,” reports The Hill. “Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.), who also skipped Trump’s previous State of the Union addresses, said that he will not be attending the speech on Tuesday.”
“I have chosen not to dignify Trump’s parade of lies about health care, his persistent exaggeration, and his personal attacks with my attendance at this year’s State of the Union Address. His appalling performances each day continue to justify that decision, and I have no doubt tomorrow night will be more of the same — even possibly worse,” Blumenauer said in a statement.
The other two Democrats include Representatives Steven Cohen and Frederica Wilson.

'THE ANSWER IS NO': Hannity’s Reality Check for CNN’s Jimmy Acosta
Sean Hannity torched CNN’s senior White House correspondent Jim Acosta Wednesday; blasting the anti-Trump “journalist” after he bizarrely challenged the Fox News host to “schoolyard meeting.”
“As I said to little Fake News Jimmy Acosta, you have not earned time on the number one show in all of cable news. You can tell all your reps to stop begging my staff, the answer is no,” said Hannity. “Unlike you, I don’t peddle lies on the lowest rated cable network in America. Nor will I promote your lies on 618 of the best talk radio stations in America. Nor has anyone ever provided me scripts or talking points (another Acosta lie).”
“For the record, I do not recall meeting you on a bus, why did you miss your big chance to talk to me?” he asked. “Now I do have good news for you. I will gladly meet you privately in a mutually agreeable ‘schoolyard’ ALONE, as you requested. My only condition is this meeting will have nothing to do with your failing book, failing career, or failing network. I’m free the week of the 4th.”
Acosta attacked Hannity during a radio interview with Hugh Hewitt; calling Fox News a “house organ for the President.”
“[At] certain hours of the day on Fox…it is very much a house organ for the president,” Acosta said. “Have we ever witnessed a situation like that, where a network essentially just serves as an amplifier of the president’s message of the day? And to some extent, focused and fixated on the conspiracy theories that he spreads. That to me is very much the definition of propaganda and state TV.”
“The likes of Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson, they’re willing to go off on me on their shows, but they’re not willing to have me on in person to defend myself,” Acosta added. “What’s with that? If you’re so darn tough, why don’t you give me an invitation to come on your show? What I’ve found over the last few days is that they’re not willing to do that. They’re willing to shoot spitballs from the sidelines like the class clown, but they’re not willing to meet me on the schoolyard. And that’s on them.”
