Sean Hannity slapped ‘crazy’ Trump supporters while doing White House Bidding: Texts

Fox News host Sean Hannity took orders from the White House even as he whipped up about the “madness” that backed then-President Donald Trump, according to new details in a bunch of text messages revealed by CNN.

Hannity and then-White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows exchanged 82 texts from election day 2020 until Joe Biden’s inauguration as president, CNN reported.

The messages were among 2,319 texts Meadows delivered in December last year to the House committee investigating the January 6, 2021 uprising at the U.S. capital.

In some cases, the lyrics reveal that Hannity acted as a sort of shadow chief of staff and advised Meadows in the wake of the 2020 election. But Meadows also issued specific orders to Hannity to help the Trump administration by transforming Fox News into a kind of state media.

On election day, Meadows wrote to Hannity in a text: “Stress, every vote matters. Come out and vote. On the radio.”

“Yes sir,” Hannity replied. “On it. Any special place where we need a push?”

“Pennsylvania. NC AZ, Nevada,” Meadows instructed.

“Understand that,” Hannity wrote.

In another revealing text, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo sent a text message to Meadows with a heads up about the questions she planned to ask Trump in the air at the end of November 2020, a practice that is frowned upon by journalists. She indicated she would provide a platform for Trump’s lies about the election and pleaded with Meadows: “Please make sure he does not break. We want to know he is strong, he is a fighter and he will win.”

In mid-December 2020, Hannity called on Meadows to continue merging. “You must also spend at least half of your time trading with us,” he wrote to Meadows.

“I agree. We can make a strong team,” Meadows replied.

Meadows and Hannity also worked together to help spin Trump’s false narrative of a false election.

But Hannity’s enthusiasm seemed to flare on Dec. 22 as he began basking in the “madness” that supported Trump.

“You fight is fine,” he wrote to Meadows. “The finger baptisms are NOT fine. They are NOT helping him. I’m tired of those people.”

Meadows and Fox News have not commented on CNN’s report on the lyrics.

But earlier this week, Hannity defended accepting orders from Meadows and acted as a de facto Trump campaign in 2020.

“Sean Hannity wanted Donald Trump to win. There is – there’s a CNN warning for you. What a shock,” Hannity said in his radio program.
