Sean Hannity roasted the media in his opening monologue on Friday, accusing them of trying to overturn the results of the election, per Breitbart.
Hannity called the media the “unelected fourth branch of government.”
Check it out:
The unelected fourth branch of government, the deep state, is trying to overturn the results of November’s election and throw this president out of office! So how did a bunch of unelected bureaucrats get so much power, feel so emboldened that think they can undermine a duly elected president of the United States and just take over?
All right, so the unelected fourth branch of government is now being aided and abetted by the destroy Trump media, all in a massive effort to damage and destroy President Trump. Now, this week alone, we have seen unprecedented and potentially criminal leaks from the deep state to the liberal Washington Post.
Hannity went on to say that the “liberal smear machine” is disguising itself as unbiased media and basing reports on anonymous leaks that bear no credibility.
He went on:
OK, how is it possible that they dare to leak information almost every single day without any fear of consequences? And by the way, they’re wrong so often. Present Trump responding to that report today, tweeting, quote, “I am being investigated for firing the FBI director by the man who told me to fire the FBI director. That’s a witch hunt.”
Hannity continued to say that there’s a reason the only information about the Russia investigation that was never leaked was that the President wasn’t actually under investigation.
Here’s the problem. Whoever is leaking this information to the media — they need to be arrested. They need to be prosecuted. Every one of them needs to be put in jail. Why hasn’t every Obama holdover been fired? Why have the leakers, you know, not been discovered and arrested at this point?
