Fox News’ morning show brought host Sean Hannity on Tuesday to push conspiracy theories about Hillary Clinton’s health and rail against a rival network for “literally” kissing “Hillary Clinton’s ass.”

The conservative talk radio host, who has for weeks conducted an on-air “investigation” of whether Clinton is hiding serious health problems from the American public, admitted on “Fox and Friends” he doesn’t actually know if she’s unhealthy, but voters deserve to know.

Asked if there’s a risk in doggedly pursuing conspiracy theories about Clinton’s health, Hannity said, “I don’t know if there’s a risk. I mean, you can compare the vitality between the two [Trump and Clinton] and there’s no comparison. What her actual health is, I don’t know.”

Hannity went on to rage against the mainstream media, CNN in particular, for being “so in the tank, so on board for Hillary.” Hannity referenced a segment from “pipsqueak” CNN anchor Brian Stelter’s weekend show, where an “arrogant professor” spoke about Trump being a demagogue, as evidence of the “abusively biased” media.

“That is the kind of coverage that CNN offers in this presidential race as they literally kiss Hillary Clinton’s ass and Obama’s ass every day,” he said.

The outburst prompted a surprised response from the “Fox and Friends” hosts, who joked that Hannity can’t use that language during a morning show.

“I say that on my show every night, sorry guys,” he responded.
