Always the loyal MAGA foot soldier, Sean Hannity rushed to Donald Trump‘s aid during his Fox News broadcast earlier this week. However, the longtime supporter of the former president deployed an unusual tactic that doesn’t seem to be going as planned. In an odd move, Hannity decided to list all of the lawsuits and investigations that Trump is facing including the damning search of Mar-a-Lago that former attorney general Bill Barr believes will end in an indictment. (The reported finding of nuclear documents probably didn’t help.)
“Instead of trying to fix the economy or dare talk about it or the border or the fentanyl or opioid crisis or the crime crisis, Democrats have been wasting almost all of their time and billions of your tax dollars with one investigation after investigation into all things Donald Trump,” Hannity said. “And this has been going on now for years.”
Hannity then scrolled a massive list of Trump’s alleged misdeeds in an effort to prove his point that the Democrats are “wasting” the government’s time and resources. Instead, Hannity provided a damning portrait of Trump’s current predicament.
You can see the full lis that Hannity rattled off below, which The Washington Post notes isn’t even complete. Hannity actually forgot a few items, but once you get past the 20th investigation, does it even matter?
