Dem Congressman Gets Thrown Off After Calling Hannity A Liar, Immoral: Youâre âThe Worse Excuse For A Journalistâ
During a particularly contentious interview onSean Hannityâs show tonight, Democratic congressman Keith Ellison launched into an angry tirade against the host, accusing him of being âimmoralâ and a liar. He told Hannity he continuously says things that arenât true, pointing to his consistently blaming the massive debt onPresident Obama. Hannity immediately stopped the interview at this point and told Ellison that having him on was a waste of time.
Right at the top of the interview, Ellison told Hannity, âYou are the worst excuse for a journalist Iâve ever seen.â He scolded Hannity for trying to blame the president instead of providing accurate information on the sequester fight, and called Hannity a âshill for the Republican party.â Hannity invited Ellison to âkeep ranting.â
After Ellison spoke for a bit, Hannity cut him off to ask another question, but Ellison fired back, âNo, wait a minute, you said I could rant, and I am.â Hannity said heâs had plenty of time to rant, but before he could get onto the next question, Ellison kept loudly talking. Hannity asked, âWhy are you so angry?â
Hannity told Ellison he was acting âcomical,â and in response to Ellisonâs bewilderment and light mocking, he said he gave him enough time to rant without getting another question. Hannity said that in the spirit of bipartisanship they should have a dialogue. Ellison shot back, âI thought you werenât a Republican.â Hannity clarified heâs a registered conservative.
Hannity then moved on to his question. He claimed the sequester was the Democratsâ fault, to which Ellison immediately insisted it was the Republican-led Houseâs fault. Hannity tried to call outPresident Obama for the massive debt, and Ellison fought back with a few suggestions for how Democrats want to lessen the debt, which Hannity practically laughed at.
As Hannity attempted to ask Ellison another question about the âimmoralâ debt, Ellison called Hannity immoral and accused him of telling lies. He insisted that the massive debt is not Obamaâs fault, which led to a brief shouting match between the two men. Hannity cut Ellison off by telling him the interview was a âtotal waste of time.â
