Hannity endures explosive verbal attack from crazed Dem. congressman

It’s probably fair to say Fox News’ Sean Hannity didn’t expect Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison to tell him off on-air Tuesday night, but Hannity endured the verbal attack with some chuckles and a cool smile.

Ellison began the interview by calling Hannity “the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” and went crazy from there.

Hannity couldn’t get a word in edgewise, but Politico reported why Ellison was so angry:

The congressman’s remarks came after Hannity aired footage of President Obama giving two similar interviews about the looming effects of sequestration, set against a soundtrack of “O Fortuna,” from the Carmina Burana. Hannity said the President was “more concerned with fearmongering than finding a solution to the problem he created.”

Hannity allowed Ellison to say his peace, then Hannity ended the interview saying, “Congressman, you are a total waste of time. We’re moving on, because our audience deserves better. I tried to give you a fair shot.”
