Obamacare Operator Fired After Taking Call From Hannity; Hannity To Give Her A Year's Salary

Posted by   + Show Post

On the top of Thursday's broadcast of his radio show, Sean Hannity revealed Erling Davis, the Obamacare operator he called early in his Monday show, got fired. Hannity quizzed her on how well the law is being received by applicants and she revealed no one liked it. Hannity had Davis on his show today and revealed he will give her a year's salary of $26,000 and help her find a new job.

SEAN HANNITY: Something happened between the time we made that call to you, and now, what happened?

ERLING DAVIS: They fired me from my job.

HANNITY: Because of the phone call, the information that you gave us?

DAVIS: Yes sir.

HANNITY: Tell us what happened.

DAVIS: Okay, the day I received the call from the radio station, I had to go pick up my best friend that night, and then someone was like, ”someone was looking for you.” But, I don’t know who that person is. So I was like, well I’m going to come back in the morning, because I had to go back to work. So the next day I came back and they had, like, two people escort me upstairs to H.R. And then it was three head people and me, we sat down, and I’m like, “why am I up here?” I figured, okay, they wanna talk about the phone call – the incident.

Then the lady sitting behind the desk; I don’t know what their name is, but the lady that was sitting behind the desk, I guess called up another head lady on her cell phone, so the lady was talking, and I couldn’t really understand what she was saying because she had me on speakerphone. I remember her saying, “We can’t have this type of stuff going on here, so we have to release you.” But they had locked the doors and everything; I guess they didn’t want anybody to come in there.
So when she told me they had to release me, that’s when I put my name tag – my badge – on the desk, and something was going wrong with my cell phone, so that’s when I tried to call my ride to come pick me up, but the lady next to me was just, like, being rude. She had, like, an attitude.

HANNITY: Now, did they give you… You were hired… How long had you been working with this company?

DAVIS: I started September 23.

HANNITY: Okay, so it’s a fairly new job for you. Did they—I assume they put you through some training, right?

DAVIS: Yes sir, they did.

HANNITY: And did they ever tell you that you’re not allowed to take a call from a radio show? Your job was to answer phones.

DAVIS: I did not hear anything about that. There were so many of us in a big group, you can only talk so loud.

HANNITY: Right, and one of the things that struck me. I was really impressed, and I said that to you on Monday. You are patient, you are kind, you answered all our questions. You were totally honest. Wasn’t that what you were hired to do?

DAVIS: Yeah, I’m just out here tryin’ to help everybody. And I know, like, some people have been making bad comments about me. Some people have been making good comments about me. But, some people are like, “Oh, you knew you shouldn’t have said that!” And I’m just like, okay… I kinda felt bad about it. My gosh, I got fired.

HANNITY: And what was the specific reason? When they sat you down, did they give you a specific reason?

DAVIS: They said that no contact with the media. No type of media whatsoever. We’re not allowed to do that at that company.

HANNITY: Meaning, in other words, they didn’t tell you before you were hired, they didn’t tell you during your training, but then they told you after the fact that you aren’t allowed to be on the media if somebody called in. It’s not your fault I called.

 LMAO.  First she didn't work for the fed gov't.  There are no job descriptions for people who man phones to read a script.

I'm sure you didn't bother to listen to the audio.  If you had, you would have heard her say 'sir' several times to Hannity.  This would give you a clue that she's been reaised to be respectful, and I'm sure it never entered her head that she had to be super careful....because someone might want to get the truth.  She was simply trying to be polite and helpful as she'd been told.

Her employer was just one more cog in the wheel of incompetent companies the admin hires.  They should have told them during their whole two hour training course that they had better not talk to the media.  She probably had no idea she was talking to a national tv and talk radio show host

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

She worked for the federal government.  If it wasn't in her job description to be talking to the media, she shouldn't have talked to him.  It's sad she didn't have the commonsense to realize she should not be talking to the media in the first place.

Why does the Obama administration have such disdain for women and children?

 She's not a subcontractor....either.  She's simply some one hired to answer phones.

A subcontractor would be:  The gov't (A) hires Lockheed (B) to build jets.  B hires C, D, E. F.....etc. to make the parts to build those jets.  C, D, E, etc are subcontractors to the gov't.  The people who work for B, C, D, etc. are simply just employees.

Quoting PinkButterfly66:

So she was a subcontractor.  Still a big no-no.

Quoting Billiejeens:

She didn't work for the federal government she worked for some hiring agency that provided semi-warm bodies to answer phone calls. 6 weeks ago she was a server at Olive Garden.

 good point. I think that Obama should fork out cash too...personally.

This is making HIM look bad...perhaps try to fix that image?

My job refuses me to talk to the media , local newspapers, we are to direct that to the pr department.

Many jobs are like that. And its common sense. Hell look at what happens to people who post stuff about their job on social media.

 For crap's sake.  It was a call center with dozens of people in one room....not a corporation.

Did you miss the part where she was a waitress prior to getting this job.....which she only held for a couple of weeks?  I doubt the company that hired her spent a lot of time teaching them about company protocol.  And, having been a waitress, she knew all about being helpful and answering customer's questions.

Too bad she wasn't hell bent on covering Obama's ass like so many in the WH, the press, on CM, etc....shit, nearly the entire dem party....huh?

Your lack of sympathy and empathy for the every day Joe, because you have a cushy life, is just mind boggling.  I almost feel sorry for you.  Nah, I don't.
