Sean Hannity said that the left is so consumed with their hatred for President Trump that they will use the deaths of Green Berets in Niger for political purposes.
He said that the most recent case, involving Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.), is very troubling, Fox News reports.
Hannity said Wilson accused President Trump of being intentionally insensitive when he called the widow of La David Johnson.
The Miami congresswoman reiterated to other news outlets that Trump said Johnson “knew what he signed up for.”
Hannity said Wilson took the president out of context, a claim that is backed up by the White House’s account.
“Is Congresswoman Wilson trying to exploit a tragedy here?” he asked. “She has hated the president from Day One.”
“You have to be a really sick, twisted and ugly person who puts politics first… to think the president got out of bed, got on the phone and purposely wanted to hurt this family.”
He said Wilson has beat the drum of impeachment against Trump, urging Republicans to join her on the “right side of history.”
He recalled that Wilson called Trump a racist after the Charlottesville violence, and said the media has effectively egged her on.
“Cheers” actor Woody Harrelson said on ABC that Trump “has no compassion” – a statement echoed by MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Scarborough.
Hannity said he donated $14,000 to Johnson’s grieving family, and asked whether “Fake Jake Tapper” and “Humpty Dumpty [Brian] Stelter” of CNN would join him, or instead continue to bash Trump.
