In light of dangerous NKorea threat, I'm stopping all petty political disagreements for at least next 12 hours. Let's see what others do.— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) August 8, 2017
Four hours shy of hitting his goal of silence, the combative Fox political commentator detonated his petty bomb after Mitch McConnell spoke ill of Hannity's bestie, Donald Trump.
At Monday's Rotary Club meeting in Kentucky, McConnell vented about Trump's incompetence after the President denounced his "do-nothing Congress."
"Our new president, of course, has not been in this line of work before. And I think he had excessive expectations about how quickly things happen in the democratic process,” McConnell told the attendees.
The Senate Majority Leader added, “So part of the reason I think people feel we’re underperforming is because too many artificial deadlines — unrelated to the reality of the complexity of legislating — may not have been fully understood.”
Meanwhile, it's fairly easy to imagine a seething Hannity mustering all his energy to refrain from grabbing his phone.
But alas, he couldn't wait another minute. Hannity launched an invective at McConnell for his slanderous words against the Commander-in-Chief.
Sean, you promised you weren’t going to engage in “petty political disagreements for at least next 12 hours.” What happened?— Jon Passantino (@passantino) August 9, 2017
It seems the only demonstration of pettiness out of this whole debacle was his vow.
