Do you want evidence of how much Donald Trump hurt himself with tonight’s dueling town hall stunt? It’s not just that social media is laughing in his face for having bombed so badly. It’s that one of his biggest cheerleaders, Fox News host Sean Hannity, is completely melting down over it.
Trump’s town hall ended just as Hannity’s show was beginning, and he started by saying this: “NBC fake news did their best to just ambush President Trump at tonight’s town hall. He pretty much debated [host] Savannah Guthrie, and what we all witnessed was not journalism.” Hannity then went on to falsely and bizarrely accuse Guthrie of being a Biden campaign surrogate.
By the time Sean Hannity was done melting down, he was ranting about “New York liberal elitist out of touch” and “conspiracy TV” and whatever “MSNBCDNC” is supposed to be. This is a clear sign that even Hannity thinks Donald Trump did horribly tonight, or else he’d be trying to paint it as a Trump win.
