(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Fox News host Sean Hannity continued his long, slow decline from a once-vaunted spot atop the network’s primetime roster by rudely attacking Rep. Lauren Boebert, R-Colo., over her refusal to support Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., for the House Speaker position, the Gateway Pundit reported.
After more than six rounds of voting, McCarthy has failed numerous times to garner enough votes to secure the speakership, despite having the support of heavy hitters including Hannity, former President Donald Trump and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.
After about 20 House Republicans once more declined to vote for McCarthy on Tuesday, Hannity attempted to deride one of those republicans, Lauren Boebert, on national TV.
“Who is your final choice for speaker, and if you can’t get more than 30 votes, will you follow your own advice… and withdraw?” Hannity asked.
“Is this a game show?” Hannity mocked after Boebert joked that she might vote for Trump for House speaker. The interview then descended into total chaos as Boebert and Hannity tried to speak over each other.
“We need to find somebody who can actually unify the Republican party,” Boebert noted, slamming McCarthy for failing to make concessions to the Freedom Caucus as Hannity continued to interrupt, appearing exasperated.
Hannity’s political takes have become increasingly painful in recent months as he denies all election fraud and takes shots at Trump for his antics.
In recent weeks, Hannity gave a deposition for a lawsuit coming from Dominion Voting Systems, claiming that he did not believe that the voting machines used in the 2020 election were used in a scheme to steal the election from Trump.
According to Hannity, regarding election fraud, he “did not believe it for one second.”
“Almost single-handedly, Sean Hannity sowed deep seeds of disinformation, flat-out lies every night for the last five days, and that was just extremely hard to overcome apparently,” Senatorial candidate Kathy Barnette, said last summer.
