WATCH: Hannity Goes Off On GOPers Who Won’t Back Trump

Sean Hannity has just about had it with Republicans who won’t get behind Donald Trump.

During his Fox News show on Thursday night, Hannity lamented that Republicans have had plenty of time to get used to Trump and suggested that the House find a new speaker, given that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) still won’t support Trump as the nominee.

“To me it seems selfish,” Hannity told Republican National Committee Chair Reince Priebus, referencing Ryan’s refusal to back Trump. The Fox host also noted that Mitt Romney, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush won’t back Trump either.

“I’m getting a little ticked off,” Hannity said.

Priebus offered a measured response, telling Hannity that “it’s gonna take some time for some people to come to grips and to get to know Donald Trump and to get on board.”

“This has been going on a year!” Hannity hit back. “What do they need to know?”

Priebus again said that some people need more time “to get to a full embrace” of Trump as the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

At another point in his Fox News show, Hannity complained about Ryan’s comments to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-GA).

“I’m not ready to support Speaker Ryan anymore. I’m thinking maybe we need a new speaker,” Hannity said.

Gingrich said that Ryan “made a big mistake” in not openly supporting Trump.

“He is the speaker of the House. He has an obligation to unify the party,” Gingrich said.
