A polite Obamacare hotline operator who answered conservative radio host Sean Hannity’s questions during an on-air interview lost her job the following day.
“They fired me from my job,” Earline Davis told Hannity Thursday, saying she had been escorted to Human Resources when she arrived at work Tuesday, the day after Hannity’s show.
“The lady that was sitting behind the desk, I guess called up another head lady, and they had her on speakerphone on her cellphone, so the lady was talking, and I couldn’t really understand what she was saying because she had me on speakerphone,” Davis said. “I remember her saying, ‘We can’t have this type of stuff going on here, so we have to release you.’”
Feeling badly that he had something to do with the Florida mother of two losing her job, Hannity said he would give her $26,000, tax-free – the amount of her annual salary — and help her find another job.

Davis also appeared on “Hannity” Thursday night, saying her termination turned out to be a “blessing from God.”
Hannity had to set up a special email address to accept job offers for Davis, saying that the response throughout the day had been overwhelming, including at least one solid offer.
