Fox News’ Juan Williams: Limbaugh, Coulter, and Hannity Are ‘Running This Government!’

A Fox News panel on the government shutdown got heated tonight and Juan Williams in particular said that colleague Sean Hannityis one of a few notable conservative voices running the government.

Martha MacCallum spoke with Williams, a liberal co-host of The Five, and Karl Rove about the border wall fight and Nancy Pelosi‘s (D-CA) letter to President Donald Trump about delaying the State of the Union.

Rove blasted Pelosi over the move, saying she’s clearly doing this for political reasons and wants to “humiliate” Trump. “Shame on her,” he added.

Williams said Trump’s the one taking a hard line on this and he clashed with MacCallum over whether Democrats are being hypocrites and on what exactly should happen at the border.

“You’re hung up on whether or not the thing is called a wall,” MacCallum said.

“No no no,” Williams retorted. “He wants a wall that is ineffective and inefficient.”

As he and Rove argued over walls at the border, Rove told Williams to “read the goddang bill!”

Williams said in response, “You should go listen to Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and Ann Coulter, because they’re running this government!”
