Sean Hannity has given Alabama senate nominee Roy Moore 24 hours to clear his name, or else.
The Fox News host came out guns blazing on Tuesday after he played clips from his radio interview with Moore, where the Alabama Republican senate nominee did not definitively deny having inappropriate relationships with teenagers.
“You know I do not and will never rush to judgment, because we have seen the media and politicians get it wrong so many times,” the Fox News host said at the end of his program, before he played the clips.
Hannity said he was concerned over Moore’s “inconsistencies” and his denial of knowing his fifth accuser, before a yearbook was produced with an inscription to her, allegedly from Moore, calling her “beautiful.”
“For me, the judge has 24 hours. You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies… You must remove any doubt,” Hannity said.
“If you can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race,” he said.
“This country has way too many issues and problems,” he said. “The American people deserve 100 percent truth and honesty. We need correct answers the first time on issues this serious.”
The ultimatum followed a boycott campaign against Hannity that saw people destroying their Keurig coffee makers after the company pulled out of sponsoring his show.
They were joined by several other companies, like Realtor.com, that promised not to advertise on Hannity’s Fox News show.
It also came on the same night that it was discovered that a robocall was going out to Alabama residents pretending to be a Washington Post reporter offering a cash reward for gossip about Moore.
Scores of Democrats, and many Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. John McCain have called on Moore to exit the race.
