Hannity Slams ‘Officially Psychotic’ Media Over Trump-Putin Meeting: They ‘Need to Be Committed!’

On Wednesday night, Sean Hannity ripped the “Destroy Trump Media” over their reporting on the alleged “secret” second meeting President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin had at the G20 Summit.

He dismissed the story as “fake news” and claimed that the media created the “fake scandal” and “spread it like wildfire.”

The Fox News host showed clips from CNN’s Anderson Cooper, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, and Lawrence O’Donnell who “went into full-freakout conspiracy mode.”

“This is just beyond pathetic!” he reacted.

He then showed a photo of the supposed meeting, which was actually a dinner that all the world leaders (and the press) present at the G20 Summit attended and pointed out that Trump was sitting next to the Japanese Prime Minister’s wife and Putin was sitting next to First Lady Melania Trump.

“According to the White House, at some point during the dinner, Donald Trump did something so shocking… he actually walked over and talked to another guest!” Hannity exclaimed.

He then accused the media for “foaming at the mouth.”

“They’re officially psychotic!” he stated. “These people need to be committed! I mean if it wasn’t so serious, it’d be laughable! They’re suffering well beyond Trump Derangement Syndrome. They need help!”
