    More texts between Mark Meadows and Fox News hosts published by CNN on Friday further detail the link between former President Donald Trump’s White House and the popular network – particularly surrounding the 2020 presidential election and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. CNN notes that multiple Fox News hosts reached out to Meadows, including Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Brian Kilmeade, and Maria Bartiromo also texted with Meadows. Tucker Carlson texted with Meadows once, but to ask a question while researching his show and the two did not connect. While Ingraham and Kilmeade largely expressed frustration with Trump’s messaging around the Jan. 6 attack, Bartiromo can be seen sending questions the “planned to ask Trump” an hour before he gave his first interview since the election on November 29th. Bartiromo texted Meadows at 9:21 a.m, as reported by CNN: Hi the public wants to know he will fight this. They want to hear a path to victory. & he’s in control. 1Q You’ve said MANY TIMES THIS ELECTION IS RIGGED… And the facts are on your side. Let’s...

    Former President Donald Trump has slammed Joe Biden for 'playing into Putin's hands' in an interview with Sean Hannity. Trump spoke to Hannity via phone call on the FOX News show, laying into his successor Biden while on the topic of the ongoing Ukraine Russia conflict. Speaking to Sean Hannity on Thursday, Trump said: 'I rebuilt our whole nuclear arsenal. Stronger, bigger and better than ever before. 'It's better and bigger than Russia. He should say we are a nuclear nation, we don't want war and we don't want to wipe out Russia.  'This is the way he should be talking, he isn't talking about our nuclear capability. 'Instead, he keeps saying that they are a nuclear nation, we don't want war. He is playing right into Putin's hands when he does that.'

    Former President Donald Trump said media reports of a conflict between him and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, R., were "totally fake news" on Thursday, saying he intended to have a good relationship with him for the foreseeable future. During Trump's phone interview on "Hannity," host Sean Hannity relayed that DeSantis said there was no conflict or bickering between the two when he met recently with one of Hannity's friends. "Is he right?" Hannity asked. (AP) "Well, he is right," Trump said, praising DeSantis for his work when he served in the House combating the Russia collusion narrative that dominated coverage of his presidency. TRUMP REACTS TO BIDEN'S FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE: ‘I WANT HIM TO DO WELL’ BUT AMERICA IS ‘IN TROUBLE' "The Republicans really stuck together, and it was a great thing, and Ron was one of them, and Ron wanted to run [for governor], and I endorsed him, and that helped him greatly, and he went on, and he's done a really terrific job in Florida," Trump said. "Ron has been very good. He's been a friend...
    CNN political commentator Bakari Sellers says he can have drinks with former Donald Trump press secretary Sean Spicer, and that Spicer isn’t a bad person, just a party loyalist who was “consumed” by Trump. Sellers gave the somewhat surprising assessment of Spicer while speaking with Aidan McLaughlin for the latest episode of Mediaite’s The Interview podcast. The remarks are not what one might expect from Sellers or any Democrat about someone so closely associated with Trump and so widely reviled on the left. McLaughlin mentioned during the podcast that both Spicer and Fox News host Sean Hannity have previously been guests on The Interview. Sellers reacted to the mention of Hannity’s name. “Sean Hannity is not Sean Spicer,” said Sellers. “I mean, they’re not — I actually — Spicer, I don’t know if he would still consider me a friend. We’re probably associates now.” “But you know, I drink with Spicer,” said Sellers. “I mean, Spicer is is is more of a character of the DC political circus. I don’t think he’s a bad person. I think that he kind...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The House panel investigating the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol insurrection on Tuesday requested an interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, one of former President Donald Trump’s closest allies in the media, as the committee continues to widen its scope. In a letter to Hannity, Mississippi Rep. Bennie Thompson, Democratic chairman of the panel, said the panel wants to question him regarding his communications with former President Donald Trump, former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and others in Trump’s orbit in the days surrounding the insurrection. A Fox News spokesperson declined to comment on the request. Jay Sekulow, Hannity’s lawyer, told Axios, “If true, any such request would raise serious constitutional issues including First Amendment concerns regarding freedom of the press.” Sekulow later told The Associated Press he had not seen Thompson’s letter. In his letter, Thompson said: “The Select Committee has immense respect for the First Amendment to our Constitution, freedom of the press, and the rights of Americans to express their political opinions freely. For that reason, we do not intend...
    Sean Hannity spoke with former Trump chief-of-staff Mark Meadows shortly after the January 6th committee voted to recommend criminal contempt charges against Meadows. While the two did discuss the vote, neither mentioned that the committee had just revealed that the Fox News host texted Meadows during the riot. “Can he make a statement, ask people to leave the Capitol,” Hannity texted Meadows on January 6th as violence raged on. Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) read the text during the hearing. The committee also revealed that Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Brian Kilmeade texted Meadows that day asking the president to take action. The next never came up during a nearly eight-minute segment that featured Meadows and a discussion of the January 6th committee and the criminal contempt vote affecting Meadows. “First, I guess I’ll get your reaction to the January 6 vote – nine [to] zero – that will now go before the House, but we already know this is a predetermined outcome,” said Hannity. “Obviously it’s disappointing, but not surprising,” Meadows replied. “And let’s be clear about this, Sean....
    Fox News host Sean Hannity interviewed Mark Meadows about the Capitol riot committee's investigation but declined to discuss how, hours earlier, the panel revealed a text message from Hannity urging Meadows to get former President Donald Trump to make a statement to stop the violence on Jan. 6. Instead, Meadows was presented the opportunity to respond to the Jan. 6 committee, which voted unanimously Monday to advance contempt proceedings against Meadows, Trump's White House chief of staff on Jan. 6, who last week stopped cooperating with its investigation into the Capitol riot. "Obviously, it's disappointing, but not surprising. And let's be clear about this, Sean, this is not about me — holding me in contempt. It's not even about making the Capitol safer. We see that by some of the selective leaks that are going on right now," Meadows said. "This is about Donald Trump and about actually going after him once again continuing to go after Donald Trump. And when we look at the real results of this investigation, it is not really — the foundation is...
    Former President Donald Trump joined Sean Hannity for a phone interview Wednesday, and the results were ratings gold for the Fox News opinion host. Hannity swept the competition at 9 p.m. Wednesday, notching more total viewers and viewers in the valuable A25-54 demographic than The Rachel Maddow Show and Cuomo Prime Time combined, according to Nielsen data. Hannity had 3.47 million total viewers and 569,000 in the demo. By comparison, Maddow had 2.34 million total viewers and 326,000 in the demo, and Cuomo had 1.06 million total viewers and 192,000 in the demo. Hannity also topped the charts overall in cable news on Wednesday. Tucker Carlson Tonight was second, with 3.06 million total viewers, and 476,000 in the demo. The Five was third in total viewers, with 2.63 million, and fifth in the demo, with 341,000. The Ingraham Angle was fourth in total viewers, with 2.39 million, and third in the demo, with 451,000.

    (CNN)Out of office and having shut down his revolutionary communications site blog, former President Donald Trump has lost much of his ability to drive the daily national political conversation.But he still has a telephone! And that means he can, whenever he wants, call into friendly outlets to spout his latest, um, observations on the state of the country and world.Which is what he did on Wednesday night, chatting with Fox News' Sean Hannity about, well, everything. Below the lines you need to see. 1. "Well, I guess the overall is, we didn't get anything. We gave a very big stage to Russia, and we got nothing."This is Trump's analysis of President Joe Biden's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Which is sort of ironic because when Trump got together with Putin in Helsinki in 2018, he undermined America's intelligence community by saying that "both sides" were to blame for Russia interfering in the 2016 election. And away we go!Read More2. "And performance art, you will take a look at how various people performed, namely, the two people. And you have...
    Former President Donald Trump called into Fox News on Wednesday night and ended up attacking Fox News’ own Chris Wallace. Trump spoke with Sean Hannity about President Joe Biden’s summit with Vladimir Putin. Hannity brought up Hunter Biden and Burisma at one point as he talked about Ukraine. Trump hit the younger Biden as well and brought up one moment during the 2020 presidential debates where things got particularly heated. The former president accused Wallace of trying to “protect” Biden on a question about his son, and he told Hannity, “Chris Wallace protected him because he couldn’t answer the question. So Chris Wallace protected him, good old Chris Wallace. He’ll never be Mike.” He went on to say “we no longer have a fair and free press.” Hannity did not react to the comments about Wallace, but responded, “I said in 2007, sir — I wish I came up with ‘fake news’ — but I did say journalism in America is dead, and I don’t think I was wrong. I think I probably understated it.” Trump has repeatedly attacked Wallace over that...
    Comedy legend and actor Charles Grodin died on Tuesday at the age of 86. Grodin was not just a beloved actor, but he was very politically outspoken and famously hosted a talk show on CNBC in the 90s. The news of Grodin’s passing got many to reflect on his hilarious late night appearances over the years, and one moment in particular that stands out was a wild interview Grodin did with Sean Hannity several years ago. In a 2009 appearance on Fox News, Grodin asked Hannity a series of unrelated questions – from the ridiculous to the serious – that put him on the defensive. “How much mascara do you have on right now?” Grodin asked Hannity. “None,” he responded. “Zero.” “Because I asked for it and they said, ‘We’ve given it all to Sean.'” Grodin also randomly asked Hannity if he was dating Ann Coulter, and then seamlessly segued to a question about his support of waterboarding, a method of torture that Hannity referred to as “enhanced interrogation.” Grodin: Have you ever been waterboarded? Hannity: Ollie North...
    Sean Hannity slammed Jimmy Kimmel on Tuesday night, reminding the late-night host of the insensitive things he's done on his own show after Kimmel made an off-color comment about the Fox News host's interview with Caitlyn Jenner. Jenner, who is running for governor of California, sat down with Hannity for a Q&A last week. Kimmel's response: 'Is it transphobic to call a trans person an ignorant a-hole?'   That didn't sit well with Hannity, who fired back on Tuesday, warning Kimmel not to talk about his show.  'This is you: an ignorant a**hole,' Hannity said, reminding the host of 'all the crap' Kimmel's done over the years - and warning him he'd take his concerns higher. 'If he wants me to remind his bosses back at Disney of all the crap he's done over the years ... I'll be glad to,' Hannity said.   Jenner, who is transgender, had come under fire by some for comments she made that some people interpreted as insensitive about California's out-of-control homeless population.  My friends are leaving California,' Jenner said on Hannity's show. 'My hangar -...
    LOS ANGELES -- Caitlyn Jenner, a Republican whose campaign for California governor has elicited angry reaction from some members of the LGBTQ community, said Wednesday that "I move on" when it comes to her critics.Her comment came during a one-on-one interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity, which marked some of her first words in public since announcing her candidacy for the expected recall election that could remove Democratic Gov. Gavin Newsom.In their wide-ranging chat, Jenner used the friendly platform of Hannity's stage to stake out positions on issues from immigration to forest management. She said she would reopen the state immediately after more than a year of pandemic restrictions, opposed efforts to defund police departments and suggested that funds from the state's troubled high-speed rail project should be channeled into desalination plants to provide more water in the drought-prone state.RELATED: Caitlyn Jenner releases 1st ad in bid to recall Gov. Newsom, branding herself a 'compassionate disrupter'But she also displayed signs of a first-time candidate, occasionally stumbling over answers, rambling or providing only generalities. At one point she said she...
    Former Olympian and California gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner joined "Hannity" to discuss her candidacy amid recall of Gov. Gavin Newsom. During the interview Jenner emphasized where she stands on law enforcement as crime skyrockets in her state. Hannity questioned Jenner on whether or not she agrees with the current governor's plan to release prisoners, some of whom had committed violent crimes. "Not at all. I think on the releasing of the prisoners, criminal justice reform is very important and we need to do that. We need to rehabilitate people in prison and bring them back into the community safely. In [Newsom's] case I don't know how many of these people have actually been rehabilitated to go back into society." In combination with criminal justice reform, Jenner discussed the need to back law enforcement.  Video"I am 100% behind our police force. Every place I go. If I see a cop, if I'm driving and see a cop, I'll put my hand out the window and give him a thumbs up. If they're sitting there I'll pull up and say ‘thank you...
    Former Olympian, transgender activist, and now gubernatorial candidate Caitlyn Jenner will be appearing for her first TV interview since announcing in a May 5 interview with Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity. Last week Jenner announced her run in the California recall election. The news was well-received by Fox’s Greg Gutfeld, and not as well by Charlie Kirk when appearing on Fox. “There are so many talents that Caitlyn Jenner has and the most important one, besides being a sensible Republican, is she has a tremendous sense of humor,” said Gutfeld. “She may be a role model, but she doesn’t take herself seriously. She’s an athlete, and athletes have no patience for victimology.” On Thursday, Fox News announced that Jenner will join Hannity for a one-on-one sit down covering the recall, and “the current issues facing the state, including recent Covid-19 restrictions and the rising crime rates.” Running as a Republican in extremely blue state can be challenging, but former Republican governor of the state Arnold Schwarzenegger suggested that name recognition (fame) can make a big difference in California. The...
    (CNN)On Monday night, former President Donald Trump sat down with Fox News' Sean Hannity for his first on-camera interview since leaving the White House in January. I use the word "interview" lightly here because what Hannity did in his capacity as a "journalist" was something short of asking tough questions of a public figure. It was more like having a few beers with an old friend who you were hoping might help you get a job one day.I went through the transcript -- you're welcome in advance! -- and pulled out the best(?) lines. They're below. 1. "Well, we're seeing a lot of people. We're seeing a lot of good Republicans and a lot of good Americans, in some cases, great Americans. And we are working very hard."What was the question from Hannity that elicited this response? "You were working as hard as you did when you were in the White House, except you play a little golf more, that you're keeping an insane schedule, seven days a week. You really don't stop." And away we go!Read More2. "You...
    Igor Derysh October 5, 2020 3:13PM (UTC) President Donald Trump did not disclose that he had already tested positive for COVID-19 and was awaiting a second test when he was interviewed by Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday, according to a new report. Trump received a positive result from a rapid test on Thursday evening before his Fox News interview, The Wall Street Journal reported. The president mentioned that his top aide, Hope Hicks, had tested positive for COVID-19 — but not that he was awaiting the results of a second test to confirm the preliminary result. : "I'll get my test back either tonight or tomorrow morning," Trump told Hannity hours before confirming on Twitter that he and first lady Melania Trump had both tested positive for the disease. Trump appears to have attempted to keep Hicks and other aides' positive results under wraps, as well.  "Don't tell anyone," Trump told an adviser after their own positive test, according to the report. : Campaign manager Bill Stepien, who worked closely with Trump and Hicks on debate preparations, was not...
    (CNN)While most Americans who care about politics were watching the final night of the Democratic National Convention, President Donald Trump sought to offer up a bit of counter-programming: Calling into Sean Hannity's show on Fox News.Hannity, who has long been one of Trump's most ardent backers, always offers up a comfortable perch for the President to unload on his perceived enemies while touting his alleged accomplishments. Thursday night was no different. Below, the lines you need to see from the interview. 1. "I have watched some, not that much, but I have watched some."This is Trump responding to Hannity's question about how much of the Democratic National Convention he has watched. If you believe he has watched "not that much," you are wrong.Read More2. "And you talk about suburbia. You know, we're all saying about suburban women. The fact is, they're going to really want to support me, because we're for law and order."In the most recent CNN poll, Trump was losing to former Vice President Joe Biden among all women by 24 points. In the 2018 midterm elections,...

    (CNN)President Donald Trump appears to have developed a new Thursday night ritual: He calls in to Fox News anchor Sean Hannity's show and just, well chats.He did it in late March. He did it earlier this month. And he did it this Thursday, too!I went through the transcript and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below. 1. "Well, it's really the China virus. Call it Covid. Call it any one of a lot of different names."[narrator voice] It's not called the "China virus." And away we go!Read More2. "We're setting an example. We don't want to have people so close together. We have had such enthusiasm. Everybody wanted to go there."So, wait. Trump canceled the Republican National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, to set an example about crowds? Didn't he move the convention to Jacksonville -- from Charlotte -- so that he could have a big crowd? I'm confused.3. "We went to North Carolina. We wanted to do it there. It was all set. We were going to build a beautiful facility. And it got hit hard. And...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity publicly apologized to his colleague Tucker Carlson after he ostensibly refuted his colleague's point in an interview just before the prime-time hand-off. Following the conclusion of his nightly show Tuesday, Hannity said he did not hear Carlson's full segment after he appeared to disagree with his colleague's claim that Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos profited off the coronavirus pandemic. "I was very clear I support capitalism. If someone is honestly providing goods and services people want, need, and desire I’m fine with that. If they capitalize on tragedy, that’s a different issue and I was very clear. I’ve seen no evidence of that. But if I do, watch out," Hannity said in a series of tweets. "I was reiterating Tucker’s point on NOT being versus capitalism. I was in the chair one minute before airtime and I was specifically responding to the end of Tucker’s interview when he said he supported honest capitalism, I had not heard any of the other part of the interview," the network host continued. "I...
    Fox News host Sean Hannity became emotional Sunday reflecting on his conversation with Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr., the father of a 19-year-old black man who was shot and killed last month inside Seattle’s Capitol Hill Organized Protest (CHOP). In a raw and honest interview with Fox News host Harris Faulkner during 'The Fight for America' special that aired Sunday night, Hannity opened up about his conversation with the grieving father and discussed the impact of his powerful words as a father of two children. "I wondered how this father of color sat with Sean Hannity and you were able to pull so much out of him, it felt like, and then we learned about you," Faulkner said during the segment, delving deep into the state of race relations in the U.S. "It wasn't about race to me, it was father to father."— Sean Hannity, 'The Fight for America' Fox News special"I've been at this since Fox went on the air in October 1996, and I’m not gonna lie, that was a very hard night for me personally," Hannity responded. "It wasn't about race to me, it was father to father. "He lost his precious 19 -year-old...
    Mary Trump made a cheeky dig at President Donald Trump lashed out at his niece and called her a 'mess' following the release of her highly-lauded tell-all memoir.  Trump's niece went after her uncle's fascination with TV ratings with a simple Friday tweet: 5.23 million v. 5.11 million.' The number referred to reported views of Mary interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow on Thursday versus the reported views of the president's town hall with Fox News' Sean Hannity in June.  She added the hashtag '#seldomseen' in reference to Trump's declaration that she was 'a seldom seen niece.' Mary Trump took to Twitter Friday to cheekily dig at how she had more viewers during her MSNBC interview compared to a Sean Hannity Fox interview with President Donald Trump The tweet comes after Donald Trump struck out at his niece Mary and former National Security Advisor John Bolton Friday over their tell-all memoirs about the president.  In a Twitter tirade, Trump claimed that he is the 'ultimate member of The Book of the Month Club' because of the recent string of scathing stories...
    Roger Stone on Monday night said his trial for lying to Congress was “the most horrible experience you can have” — and slammed the federal justice system for his prosecution. Stone, whose 40-month sentence was commuted by President Trump Friday, blasted his prosecution while venting about his experience in an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. “This is the most horrible experience you can have because I see immediately why 99 percent of the people who chose to plead not guilty and go to trial, lose,” Stone, 67, told Hannity. “When you’re up against the horrific and deep-pocket resources of the federal government and these, really sadistic, arrogant, politically motivated prosecutors … I had a biased judge, I had a stacked jury, I had a corrupt jury forewoman,” Stone fumed. Stone’s lawyer, David Schoen, said in the interview that he and Stone will “have to sit down and make a decision as to whether to go forward with the appeal.” Stone was convicted in November 2019 on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress...
    Roger Stone Brendan Smialowski/Getty Images File this in the “breaking, but not shocking” news department: Sean Hannity will have “an exclusive interview” with Roger Stone on Monday, July 13, according to a statement provided to Mediaite by Fox News. Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump, was convicted of seven counts of lying to Congress and the FBI and witness tampering, and sentenced to forty months in prison. Stone was due to report to prison on Tuesday, but Trump commuted his sentence on Friday. Trump’s decision was sharply criticized by his Democratic opponent Joe Biden , who posted tweet calling Trump “the most corrupt president in modern American history,” and former Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who penned an op-ed for the Washington Post to defend the work of his office as proper and in compliance with the law, and point out that Stone “remains a convicted felon, and rightly so.” On the flip side, Hannity and other Fox News hosts like Tucker Carlson were supportive of Stone’s quest for a commutation of his sentence. The statement from Fox confirmed that...
    Fox News’ Hannity scored the best ratings in cable news on Thursday, thanks to a call-in interview with President Donald Trump. That helped the network handily win primetime and take first in total day audience as well. According to Nielsen Media Research, Fox News topped its CNN and MSNBC rivals in the 6:00 a.m. – 2:00 a.m. daypart in both total viewers and those in the coveted 25 – 54 age demographic. For the total sales day, Fox News averaged 2.11 million viewers overall and 371,000 in the demo, besting CNN’s 1.16 million and 301,000 and MSNBC’s 1.78 million and 253,000, respectively. At 4:00 p.m., the ongoing ratings battle stayed true to form, as MSNBC’s Deadline: White House continued its success, taking the time-slot with 2.20 million overall viewers. That outdistanced Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, which pulled in 1.69 million, and CNN’s The Lead with Jake Tapper, which trailed with 1.36 million total viewers. Among A25 – 54 viewers, however, CNN took first during the hour with 287,000, edging out Fox’s 270,000 and MSNBC’s 250,000. In primetime, Fox soared to four million in...
    (CNN)Faced with coronavirus surges in some of the largest states in the country and a public turning dramatically against how he has responded to the crisis, President Donald Trump spent 40 minutes of his Thursday night on the phone with Fox News host Sean Hannity.The "interview" was, as is so often the case when Hannity and Trump talk, a grievance session -- as the President used Hannity's friendly forum to paint a version of reality that doesn't comport with, well, reality.I went through the transcript and pulled out the lines you need to see. They're below. 1. "And we can't abolish our police. They want to abolish our police.""No, I don't support defunding the police." -- Joe Biden. And away we go!Read More2.

    The Washington Post just published an investigation into the platoon that served — for just three days  — under 1Lt. Clint Lorance in Afghanistan. In those three days, Lorance allegedly committed three war crimes, and the platoon swiftly turned him in. He was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to a nineteen-year prison sentence. But he only served six years, thanks to a lobbying effort by Fox News hosts who convinced President Donald Trump to pardon Lorance. He was freed last year. The Post spoke to members of Lorance’s former platoon in the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 82nd Airborne Division, who expressed disgust that conservative media lionized Lorance and a feeling of betrayal in response to Trump’s mindless pardoning of him. The paper provided a detailed account of the war crimes and their aftermath, “based on a transcript of Lorance’s 2013 court-martial at Fort Bragg, N.C., and on-the-record interviews with 15 members of 1st Platoon.” In 2012, after several soldiers in the platoon were wounded in Afghanistan, Lorance, who had never seen combat, was named their new platoon leader. Soldiers...
    Fox News’ Hannity scored the best ratings in all of television on Wednesday with his long interview with the father of a 19-year-old victim killed in Seattle’s CHOP zone. And his dominant performance helped drive Fox News to strong wins in total day and primetime dayparts in both total viewers and those in the coveted 25 –54 age demographic. According to Nielsen Media Research, Hannity posted the best overall ratings in both cable news and broadcast, with 4.33 million total viewers, thanks to the host’s emotional interview on Wednesday night with Horace Lorenzo Anderson. Fox’s 9:00 p.m. show came in second, however, in A25 –54 viewers with 747,000, just behind the 768,000 viewers of its 8:00 p.m. Fox lead-in, Tucker Carlson Tonight (4.12 million total viewers). Fox’s other primetime show, The Ingraham Angle, competed the network’s primetime trifecta, coming in third in total and viewers in the demo with 3.41 million and 627,000, respectively. Those numbers helped Fox average a massive 3.95 million in total viewers across all of primetime and an impressive 714,000 in the demo. CNN came in a distant second in A25 – 54 viewers with...
    The father of a 19-year-old killed in Seattle’s “Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone” (CHAZ) spoke in a lengthy, emotional interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday evening. Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr. died the morning of June 21 during a shooting on the outskirts of CHAZ, which was later renamed “Capitol Hill Organized Protest” (CHOP). The young man’s death not the only one that occurred inside the now-defunct “no-cop zone.” His father Horace Lorenzo Anderson Sr. pleaded for answers and told Hannity that no one in charge has spoken to him about his son’s murder. Anderson continued on to note that “these are kids” inside the zone and criticized local officials for failing to stop it earlier. “I gotta bury my son tomorrow,” Anderson said at one point during the interview. “It’s just been a lot going on. … To this day, it’s been almost two weeks, I haven’t heard from nobody. Hasn’t nobody called. Ain’t nobody called me or tried to find me. … His number is my number, so it’s easy … for the detectives to say, excuse me,...
    Horace Lorenzo Anderson, the father of a 19-year-old killed in the “CHOP” zone, spoke out Wednesday night in an emotional interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity. His son, Horace Lorenzo Anderson Jr., was shot and killed on June 20th at the edge of the zone in Seattle. His father sat down with Hannity tonight, joined by community activist and Not This Time founder Andre Taylor. Anderson has called for the zone to be dismantled. He told Hannity he had not heard from the mayor and law enforcement, saying that when he went to the hospital, there weren’t any detectives there or anyone from the press. “To this day they still haven’t called me right now,” Anderson said. “I’ve been on TV. They still haven’t called me. Nobody has called me.

    President Donald Trump’s fitness to hold office was called into question after the broadcasting on Thursday evening of a town hall that had been pre-recorded with Fox News personality Sean Hannity. Trump falsely claimed there would not be any COVID-19 cases were it not for testing to detect the pandemic. Trump also predicted Joe Biden would win the 2020 presidential race and bragged about being “the most perfect person.” And Trump flopped after being asked his priorities for a second term. Here’s some of what people were saying about the interview: Again, someone close to the president should let him know that he cant lose the election if he drops out of the race.

He wasn’t sharp." Trump added: “He’s the only man I think I ever met -- I knew him for a year -- I don’t think I ever saw him smile once. I said to him, ‘John, do you ever smile?’ And it tells you something about somebody.’" TRUMP BLASTS BOLTON AS 'WASHED UP CREEPSTER' AS BOOK HITS SHELVES, SAYS HE SHOULD BE IN JAIL Bolton earlier this week defended his decision to write a tell-all about his time in the Trump administration...
