Sean Hannity Freaks Out Over 'Idiotic' Mulvaney Presser

How bad are things for Mick Mulvaney? So bad that even Sean Hannity on his radio show was hurling around words like "dumb", "idiotic", etc to describe Mulvaney's presser performance today. Don't believe your lyin' eyes and ears, folks, everything is fine in Trumpland. At least it is, according to Sean Hannity, all evidence to the contrary.

It seemed at least conceivable that Mick Mulvaney might be in danger of losing his dual roles as OMB director and “acting” White House chief of staff following a disastrous press conference on Thursday, during which he admitted the Trump administration held up aide for Ukraine in exchange for political help for President Trump.

To those who may be concerned about the “quid pro quo,” Mulvaney advised them to “get over it.”

But that danger grew far more real after Fox News host Sean Hannity threw Mulvaney under the bus and then drove over him on his afternoon radio show.

Transcript: Media Matters

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I just think half these people, Republicans too -- what is Mulvaney even talking about? I just think he's dumb, I really do. I don't even think he knows what he's talking about. That's my take on it.

So, you got the cowardly Schiff, we know, pressured Ukraine, Ukraine witness to change his testimony. No wonder Nancy Pelosi wants to keep her secret Soviet-style impeachment coup in place and not let anybody know anything.
I guess the truth is complicated. This is what, you know -- this is why, I think, some of these people are so stupid. Read the transcript. We don't need a non-whistleblower whistleblower. You don't need a chief of staff's idiotic interpretation of things, when the president and the president of Ukraine and everybody else can read it all themselves. That's what's amazing.
