So Much For ‘Lock Her Up’? Sean Hannity Now Slams Threats to Imprison Political Opponents: ‘Beyond Despicable’

By Reed RichardsonJun 7th, 2019, 3:12 am

In his “Big Picture” segment, Fox News primetime host Sean Hannity blasted Congressional Democrats for pursuing impeachment and singled out Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her recent, private comments that she wanted to see President Donald Trump imprisoned after he leaves office.

“She wants a political opponent locked up in prison,” Hannity said in apparent disbelief. “That happens in Banana Republics, it’s beyond despicable behavior. They would turn the USA into a country we no longer recognize.”

Hannity went on to rail against the Democrats, saying they were ignoring key issues as part of a vendetta against Trump. “They focus on one thing and one thing only. That’s their rage. Their obsession. Donald Trump the president lives in their heads 24/7.”

Hannity’s outrage over the criminalization of politics strains credulity, to say the least. The president’s 2016 campaign notoriously made “lock her up” — a direct threat to imprison Hillary Clinton — one of its signature rallying cries. Relatedly, a transcript search of Fox News for just the past 12 months finds that Hillary Clinton’s name has been mentioned at least once on more than 240 of Hannity’s shows, or nearly every single broadcast (some of which were reruns). During this same period, Hannity offered up no public criticism of “lock her up.”

In fact, back in March, after the Barr summary of the Mueller report came out, Hannity took a decidedly unbothered approach to the phrase during a long, exclusive interview with Trump. In it, he blithely referred to the many campaign crowd chants for imprisoning Hillary Clinton —which Trump routinely encouraged and joined — but did not see fit to call out that rhetoric as “beyond despicable” and instead merely asked if Trump still agreed with that sentiment (18:35 mark in video below).

1. Amazing!

"Hannity’s outrage over the criminalization of politics strains credulity"

"Strains credulity?"

The guy is such a blind, two-faced idiot that he can't even see his own stupidity. Perhaps it's because his head is too far up IQ45's A$$!

2. No Shame for Lumpy

He counts on his devotees being dumb as a rock complete with selective memory.

He is literally Goebbels Jr. I hope someday he gets what he deserves.

Hate is a strong word but I am there with Trump and his hand puppet.

3. Shammity Ignores The Obvious--His Pal Donnie Wants To Govern Like A Banana Republican

Shammity deliberately ignores the obvious: Donnie wants to govern like a Banana Republic’s President: his wishes by decree or enacted by a rubber-stamp legislature, an ignored constitution, a gelded judiciary, a cowed or sycophantic press, crowds bulked up by mandatory participation, personal corruption, looting of the homeland to enrich his cronies, and all the other traits once common in the Americas.

The major difference is that our Senor President doesn’t like brown people and he no habla Espanol.
