Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed the fake news media for its contempt of President Donald Trump and his supporters in a blistering commentary.
Warning that the “forgotten men and women” of America whom they disparage will be the ones who determine the next election, Hannity blasted the likes of CNN and MSNBC as well as other media outlets that sneered through their reporting of Trump’s campaign kickoff rally in Orlando this week.

Hannity called out the MSNBC and CNN talking heads after airing clips of those like David Jolly who demanded the media hold the president’s supporters accountable for their hateful chants at Tuesday’s rally. A video clip of MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough slammed Trump as Fat Elvis before he died in 1977 and Rick Wilson insulted Trump voters who came in their “formal flip-flops and cargo pants.”
Hannity torched the offenders.
“I have a message for the conspiracy theorists on fake news NBC, the conspiracy network, the Americans who showed up last night in flip-flops and cargo shorts, they will be the people who choose the next president,” the Fox News host said Wednesday on “Hannity.”
“They are the ones who were right in 2016 and all of you were wrong,” he added.
“I suggest you go back and watch yourself on Election Day and I know the exit polls show that Donald Trump didn’t win and you all started your coverage giddy and happy and uplifted and you thought you had it in the bag. Then all of a sudden, North Carolina came around and Wisconsin came around and Michigan came around and Pennsylvania came around and Ohio came around and yeah, Florida came around and what happened? It didn’t work out the way you wanted and you could see the depression set in in the media mob, an amazing night,” Hannity said.
He pointed out that, for all the efforts of the left to lie about Trump and spend his entire presidency trying to get him ousted, Americans are not fooled.
“The forgotten men and women in this country, the ones that suffered the most under Biden-Obama, the people that make this country great every day, they didn’t buy into your lies, your conspiracy theories and your hoax the last two years,” he said.
“And as the President has been setting records as it relates to the economy and jobs and everything else, they have turned off the nightly vitriol on fake news CNN and MSNBC, they have had enough of all of your disgusting Hitler comparisons too,” he added.
He then turned his wrath on CNN chief Jeff Zucker, telling him he “should be ashamed” of himself.
“You run fake-news CNN. Your ratings are in the tank. I know Jimmy Acosta is begging to be on my show. His book was 550 on Amazon today,” he said, referring to White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s whining that he offered to come on the Fox News show to promote his new book but was turned down.
“You can barely break a million any hour during the day, we had over 5 million last night — nobody is watching,” Hannity went on, blasting Zucker for letting CNN host Don Lemon compare Trump voters to supporters of Hitler.
