Hannity Goes Off on GOP Over Spending Bill: ‘I Personally Wish the President Vetoed’ It

Sean Hannity tonight, while opening his show by blasting the media (mostly CNN) for its coverage of Stormy Daniels and Karen McDougal, also went off on Republicans over the spending bill President Trump signed.

Trump signed the bill today but said he’s not happy about it and that he would “never” sign a bill like this again.

Hannity said Republicans are “abandoning their core principles” and in this bill were “taken to the woodshed by Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.”

The President, Hannity argued, is not to blame here because Republicans left “fled Washington” and left the bill to him. He also took note of the distance between Trump and the GOP and how they haven’t done enough to support him.

Hannity even said he thinks Trump should’ve vetoed it, like he threatened to do this morning:

“I personally wish the President vetoed this bill, made them stay in Washington. Make them keep their promises. What happened to the Republican party––whatever happened to the party that believed in fiscal responsibility? We now need a revitalized second party, Republican party. They need to go back to their core principles. If they don’t by November, they will have nobody to blame but themselves if they lose. It won’t be Donald Trump’s fault.”
