Conservative talk radio host Sean Hannity is fed up with the Republican leadership criticizing Donald Trump and said he plans to blame the GOP establishment if the party’s nominee loses on Election Day.
On his Wednesday radio show, Hannity named and shamed House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), along with former primary candidates Jeb Bush, Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), as the parties he’ll blame if Trump loses to Hillary Clinton, but called the election “completely winnable.”
“I have watched these Republicans be more harsh towards Donald Trump than they’ve ever been in standing up to Barack Obama and his radical agenda,” he said. “They did nothing, nothing – all these phony votes to repeal and replace ObamaCare, show votes so they can go back and keep their power and get reelected.”
“Sorry, you created Donald Trump, all of you because of your ineffectiveness, because of your weakness, your spinelessness, your lack of vision, your inability to fight Obama,” Hannity continued. “I’m getting a little sick and tired of all of you. Honestly, I am tempted to just say I don’t support any of you people ever.”
A fired up Hannity also said he hasn’t made up his mind whether he will support Ryan’s re-election run, a nod to Trump repaying Ryan this week by withholding his primary endorsement.
Although the Fox News host didn’t endorse Trump until June, Hannity has been one of Trump’s earliest and most vocal cheerleaders anywhere in the media. Hannity’s evening Fox show has provided a safe harbor for interviews with top staffers and the billionaire himself, he has attacked conservatives who refuse to back Trump, and even offered the nominee advice on-air.
