Someone forgot to remind Sean Hannity that Trump is still going to need these Republicans before any of them leave office if he wants to get that big fat tax cut passed that will enrich Hannity, his BFF Trump, and all of those wealthy donors who are getting impatient with the fact that Republicans have shown once again that they're really, really, bad at governing once they get in power.

Trump's head cheerleader on Fox opened his show this Tuesday by lashing out at every Republican senator who has dared to go up against Trump in any way, shape, or form, even though all of them have voted for Trump's agenda eighty to ninety percent of the time.

Hannity started out his rant pretending that those tax cuts are going to help "the forgotten man and women in poverty and on food stamps" before tearing into the few Republican members of the Senate who have seemed to have located their spines in recent weeks or days: Hannity Blasts Flake: 'Don't Let The Door Hit You on the Way Out':

Sean Hannity said Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) "completely failed to deliver on his promise" he and his party made to the American people.

Flake announced his retirement effective 2019 and slammed President Trump in a lengthy floor speech Tuesday.

Hannity listed several Republican senators, including Flake, who he said have obstructed Trump's - and thereby the voters' - agenda.

"These guys have accomplished nothing... and are trying to be martyrs in the process," he said of Flake, Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), John McCain (R-Ariz.), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Bob Corker (R-Tenn.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine).

"Good riddance, happy trails, don't let the door hit you on the way out of town," he said of Flake and Corker, who are not seeking reelection.

Hannity said Flake is using his distaste for Trump as a cover, since his reported approval rating is hovering around 18 percent in Arizona.

He said Flake would not be able to beat Dr. Kelli Ward in the 2018 primary anyway.

"The senate has done next to nothing... to help Trump keep his promises," he said.
