Sources: Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams

The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the "dumbest anchor" on Fox News is a "jackass," according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity's brain is a "jackass." Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a "jackass."


If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a "jackass" on Twitter. The chances of being called a "jackass" by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a "jackass" in the last year, nearly half were told off between 9 p.m and 2 a.m.

Hannity, Trump's biggest backer on television, has said this is entertainment for him: "I am a counterpuncher," he told one Twitter user who asked why he was so antagonistic. "I do not start fights but I finish them. This is pure entertainment for me. If people take cheap shots I hit back."

Still, Hannity's version of entertainment can go too far. Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident. He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams' body. (Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.)

19. Uncle Juan has already said they are "great friends" and he didn't feel threatened.

As if Juan Williams is going to bite the hand that feeds him.

What does he do when he's really serious?

8. And Juan Williams still works there and calls Hannity a colleague?

If someone pointed a gun at me in the workplace and he wasn't immediately fired, I'm pretty sure I'd say "either he goes or I go." And I wouldn't hesitate to go if they didn't fire the guy with the gun.

12. If this story is true Juan Williams needs a self-esteem lesson.

I remember the insults he took from Jim Glassman who would start every sentence with "Well, Juaaaan". The article calls him a "liberal"? He is a Stockholm Syndrome victim who needs therapy. I would take nothing from InSanity.

14. That is unbelievable

I knew this guy was unhinged but geeze. I can't believe the executives at Faux News let that privileged ahole get away with that and I can't believe this Juan Williams didn't say much about it except that he was a bit disturbed.

17. Just another gun nut who violates all the safety rules of gun ownership.

Even if done in jest, he still violated the #1 rule: NEVER point a gun at someone unless you intend to kill them...because you might.

25. Under whatever rules one uses, Hannity is a jackass.

NRA Firearm Safety Rule #1: ALWAYS Keep The Gun Pointed In A Safe Direction

Jeff Cooper's Firearm Safety Rule #1: All Guns Are Always Loaded.

There are no exceptions. Do not pretend that this is true. Some people and organizations take this rule and weaken it; e.g. "Treat all guns as if they were loaded." Unfortunately, the "as if" compromises the directness of the statement by implying that they are unloaded, but we will treat them as though they are loaded. No good! Safety rules must be worded forcefully so that they are never treated lightly or reduced to partial compliance.

All guns are always loaded - period!

This must be your mind-set. If someone hands you a firearm and says, "Don't worry, it's not loaded," you do not dare believe him. You need not be impolite, but check it yourself. Remember, there are no accidents, only negligent acts. Check it. Do not let yourself fall prey to a situation where you might feel compelled to squeal, "I didn't know it was loaded!"

26. I am sorry, bu the f**ker should have been arrested right there and then on the spot, and

immediately terminated.

Williams should have sued fox news for not firing him
