Gretchen Carlson slams Sean Hannity for asking Bill O’Reilly to “go back on Fox”: “So f’ed up” – By Igor Derysh (Salon) / Nov 27 2019
“Mr. Hannity is all but begging his network to rehire an accused sexual predator”
Fox News host Sean Hannity urged hos disgraced former colleague Bill O’Reilly to return to the network he was fired from following multiple allegations of sexual harassment.
Hannity interviewed O’Reilly on his radio show to promote his former colleague’s recent interview with President Donald Trump on the former host’s web platform.
O’Reilly told Hannity that he had attempted to make the interview “a little personal.”
“I said you know, you — you’re taking more attack and vitriol than any other president, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln,” O’Reilly said. “And I said, ‘I’ve seen you show emotion to me when I had never seen that before in 30 years.’ His answer to that is really interesting, because I do believe it’s taken its toll on President Trump. But if you read ‘The United States of Trump,’ this statement that I wrote in that book remains true: I have never seen a human being able to absorb more punishment than Donald Trump.”
“So true — it’s unbelievable,” Hannity agreed.
