‘Uh-oh’: Hannity announces plans for time off over holiday weekend, as Fox News fires off statement…

That’s strange.

Amid a growing number of advertisers bidding his show adieu, Fox News Host Sean Hannity will be replaced by colleague Kimberly Guilfoyle for the remainder of the week, and possibly Monday.

The first sponsor to leave “Hannity” was Cars.com, apparently over the host’s pursuit of information on the murder of DNC staffer Seth Rich, but the number has since grown to seven, according to Philly.com, which reported:

Soon after, exercise bike company Peloton; Leesa Sleep; mattress retailer Casper, insurance company USAA; home security equipment maker Ring and Crowne Plaza Hotels all announced they would be redirecting their ad buys from Hannity’s shows.

 

Of the six additional sponsors leaving the fold, USAA is the most surprising. It provides insurance, banking and credit card services at reasonable rates exclusively for military families. Hannity has always been a huge supporter of the our men and women in uniform.

The Fox News host appeared to take the news well — at least on his Twitter feed. He reported:

But the network claimed in a statement that nothing should be read into its decision.

“Like the rest of the country, Sean Hannity is taking a vacation for Memorial Day weekend and will be back on Tuesday,” a Fox News spokesperson said. “Those who suggest otherwise are going to look foolish.”

From your lips to God’s ears.

Even with Fox’s statement, Hannity fans remain skeptical of the announcement and had their say on Twitter after the anti-Trump crowd rejoiced:

The Twitter war rages on as Hannity’s tweet set off a firestorm.
