MSNBC Panel Unloads on Sean Hannity: Pushes ‘Slew of Unrelated Conspiracy Thoughts’

A panel on MSNBC, led by Nicolle Wallace, laid some heavy burns on Fox News anchor Sean Hannity during a segment this evening.

It started as they discussed Special Counsel Robert Mueller and the notion that he might take more confidants of President Donald Trump into custody as an attempt to flip them.

That’s when Evan McMullin began to tear into Hannity.

“The Republicans are sticking with the Republican base. Right now the president has about 85 percent approval within the party. Why is it so high? Well, it’s high because Fox News feeds them a bill of goods every night, if you’ve ever watched Hannity,” he said.

“Now, what it is is just a slew of unrelated conspiracy thoughts that don’t connect and if you try to connect them, it’s exhausting and it’s depressing.”

John Heileman chimed in, noting Hannity’s propensity for discussing conspiracy theories related to failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. 

“In the middle of all this news that’s been happening over the last few days, you turn on Hannity and his lead story––the lead of Hannity––is Hillary Clinton and her emails,” he said. “I’m talking this week!”
