Hannity: Stephanopoulos’ Trump Interview Was ‘Genius Setup’ to Create ‘Phony Outrage’ by Media
Fox News host Sean Hannity led off his primetime show Wednesday night by not only defending President Trump saying he’d take foreign dirt on a 2020 candidate if it were offered, but also insisting that ABC’s George Stephanopoulos had set the president up in order to create a media outrage cycle.
“This will all get another round of fake, phony, moral selective outrage over that interview but it’s the perfect setup because if they are outraged about that and how can you not be outraged over what I just said?” Hannity asked. “That’s all to be expected.”
“In many ways, that was a genius setup because the media mob will fall right into his trap breathlessly spewing fake, phony outrage over a nonstory for days,” he added. “We’ll be showing you the tape this time tomorrow night ignoring the real abuse of power that took place in 2016 and the real Russian dossier that was bought and paid for and then used as a basis to spy on the Trump campaign.”
