Hannity Defends Trump With 'Thinking About Murder Isn't A Crime'

Sean Hannity goes full "shooting on Fifth Avenue" in defense of his pillow-talk buddy.

Sean Hannity often says crazy right wing nonsense on his radio show that he does not say on television. Via Media Matters:

SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Let's say the president thought for a minute, "You know what, I'm going to kill that person. I'm going to kill that idiot." Uh-oh. You speak and you say "I'm going to kill that person." Do you kill them? No. You're not guilty of murder. What are we now going to -- are thoughts crimes now according to this new politically correct world we live in?

That's radio-Sean crazy, right? He wouldn't go that far on his Fox TV show oh wait

They're going for the "well, he didn't commit MURDER" defense?

Can you help us out?
