Hannity Ridiculously Insists That He’s ‘Always Taken the Coronavirus Seriously’
Fox News host Sean Hannity, after spending weeks upon weeks downplaying and minimizing the threat of COVID-19 that has now resulted in a worldwide pandemic, declared on Wednesday night that he has “always taken the coronavirus seriously” and never referred to it as a “hoax.”
Hannity, who recently changed his tune on the viral outbreak once President Donald Trump began exhibiting urgency about the crisis, complained about the amount of criticism the media has thrown at him and Fox News over their earlier COVID-19 coverage. Taking aim at his critics, the pro-Trump host insisted they were “politicizing” the pandemic with their “hysteria” and “neverending” lies about the president.
“You know what, if it wasn’t so serious, it was pretty sick and you could probably laugh at it but nothing to laugh at here,” he continued. “By the way, this program has always taken the coronavirus seriously and we have never called the virus hoax.”
