Hannity Addresses Bundy on Fox: Comments ‘Downright Racist’ and ‘Bigoted’

Sean Hannity elaborated on his earlier comments about Cliven Bundy on his show tonight, calling out Bundy’s “disturbing comments” (though he did use words like “allegedly” and “reportedly” to cushion it) and condemning them again as racist garbage.

Hannity said, “I believe those comments are downright racist, they are repugnant, they are bigoted, and it’s beyond disturbing. I find those comments to be deplorable, and I think it’s extremely unfortunate that Cliven Bundy holds those views.”

However, he made it incredibly clear Bundy was never his main concern, it was all about the government’s disproportionate response.

Hannity went through example after example of his coverage of eminent domain stories over the years, and then invoked the IRS, Benghazi, Obamacare, The New York Times, and Jon Stewart for some reason, all enveloped in the overarching point about “government gone wild.”
