Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Monday night, Sean praised President Trump’s fulfillment of yet another campaign promise; thanking the Commander-in-Chief for successfully sending Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
“President Trump has fulfilled yet another campaign promise. Judge Brett Kavanaugh has now officially been sworn in as the newest member of the US Supreme Court; making him the second judge successfully sent to the bench by the President,” said Hannity.
“Presumption of innocence is core to who we are… In the face of one of the most despicable hit jobs in our history, Judge Brett Kavanaugh just made history. This is about power. The left will stop at nothing when it comes to blocking a nomination or winning an election,” he added.
