Hannity: Trump Made It ‘Perfectly Clear’ With Clarification Today He ‘Trusts Our Intel Agencies’
On Tuesday, Sean Hannity defended President Donald Trump amid criticism of his clarification for remarks that were said at his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
At the Helsinki summit, Trump suggested he believed Putin “strong” rebuke of allegations of meddling in the 2016 election. Today, he backtracked, insisting he meant to say he doesn’t see any reason why it “wouldn’t” be Russia instead of “would,” which is a complete reversal from his rhetoric at the press conference.
Hannity told his viewers Trump made it “perfectly clear” earlier that Trump “trusts our intel agencies.”
“In case the left forgot, what you just saw from President Trump is a position that he has clearly articulated over and over and over and over again,” Hannity said. “And if you’re media had any honesty in them, they would remind you, they would do their job.”
The Fox News host then played a montage of Trump repeatedly saying throughout his presidency that he “thinks” the hacking was Russia and it “could have been other people and/or countries.”
“So your media didn’t believe them, but he said it over and over and over again,” Hannity reacted. “We all know the Russians have been meddling in our elections. We know that Russia is a hostile regime, we know that the Putin is a bad actor. Today now that trump is president, all of us on the left seems to care.”
He later called out the “blatant hypocrisy” of the media not caring about President Barack Obama offering “more flexibility” to Putin after his reelection and his inaction on the Russia meddling under his watch.
