No intellectual consistency from Sean Hannity, who found the Trump ‘attacking CNN’ tweet, video ‘hilarious’

Sean Hannity continues his long resume of hypocrisy, rightfully outraged over the Kathy Griffin photoshoot with a bloody President Trump head, as the Fox News host claims to find the Trump tweet of a video bodyslamming CNN as “hilarious.”

Trump’s tweet of an altered video showing him tackling “CNN” at a wrestling match is his most re-tweeted post yet.

The Sunday post has been retweeted more than 340,000 times.

Hannity led the way: “Hilarious tweet. The fact that the destroy Trump media is melting down just makes it better! ”  — @seanhannity

The 28-second video and its source have been the subject of questions since Sunday morning, when the president tweeted it as he continued his attacks on the news media.

CNN responded to the tweet Sunday, calling it a “sad day” when the president encourages violence against reporters.

“Instead of preparing for his overseas trip, his first meeting with Vladimir Putin, ‎dealing with North Korea and working on his healthcare bill, he is instead involved in juvenile behavior far below the dignity of his office. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his,” the network said in a statement.

CNN said on Tuesday that it had found and spoken to the Reddit user, who had apologized for creating the video and other posts deemed “racist and anti-Semitic.”

On May 31, 2017 – Hannity aattacked the media for not being more upset about Kathy Griffin posing in a photo with a fake severed head that resembled Trump:

HANNITY: Now, to be fair, some in the media, they did realize that what Kathy Griffin did here was wrong and some spoke out against it because these types of attacks against the president — it is so disgusting and despicable. It has no place.

But of course, still plenty of others, well, they tried to defend it and laugh it off and even mocked the idea that people would be upset about this.

Can’t we just agree that both were wrong?
