Hannity Slams ‘CNN’s Fake News President Jeff Zucker’ for Statement Calling Out Trump: ‘Beyond Shameful’

Sean Hannity tonight spoke out against the bomb scares against multiple high-profile Democrats and CNN today at the top of his show, but he also criticized CNN president Jeff Zucker for his statement calling out President Donald Trump‘s rhetoric.

“I have had many many threats myself over the years,” Hannity said, bringing up several examples. “My heart goes out to anyone ever threatened. Anybody today, anybody tonight. No conservative that I know would ever support this horrible act.”

But Hannity’s monologue talking about the importance of civility also included several references to CNN as “fake news.”

He decried people pointing fingers at Trump’s rhetoric, including who he referred to as “CNN’s fake news president Jeff Zucker,” who put out this statement today:

“Even when they lie? You’re not allowed to call out lies?” Hannity asked. “Blaming the President for an act of violence from an unknown perpetrator seems beyond shameful [for] a network that claims to put facts first.”

Later on in the monologue, he referred to “fake news CNN” twice.
