Hannity Slams Media, Says Manafort Story Vindicates Trump: You’ve ‘Been Exposed For The Frauds You Are!’

On Tuesday night, Sean Hannity went after the “Destroy Trump” media for “being caught in a massive lie” and “misleading” the American people, insisting President Trump was right that the Obama administration “wiretapped” Trump Tower after the bombshell report was released that former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was wiretapped before and after the 2016 election.

“So for all of you lazy, overpaid, ideological liberal mainstream media people out there, you have now been exposed for the frauds you are yet again!” Hannity exclaimed. “And as we’ve been saying, the biased press is not interested in reporting the truth and fact. The only care about spearing and delegitimizing President Trump in this is more evidence.”

The Fox News host then played a montage of clips featuring CNN’s Jake Tapper and Brian Stelter, ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos and MSNBC’s Joy Reid that dismissed Trump’s claim.

“The conspiracy theory media lies to you yet again,” Hannity reacted. “Now this is not surprising considering the left-wing media- it’s like an echo chamber. They all find one topic to attack the president on and they repeat and repeat and readapt the same talking points. This is beyond pathetic, predictable, frankly dangerous in a lot of ways.”

He then showed clips of CNN’s Alisyn Camerota and Erin Burnett seemingly suggesting that Trump was vindicated and asked when will “other members of the establishment Destroy Trump Media” come forward and admit “they had it wrong.”
