Fox News is going to be working overtime these next few days, with the Paul Manafort and Michael Cohen findings ramping up the pressure on Donald Trump.
CNN are basically frothing at the mouth right now, with wall to wall coverage, but at least their reporting contains elements of truth.
So what has Trump sycophant number one, Sean Hannity, been talking about in the wake of these massive developments? Spoiler alert – Donald did nothing wrong.
Here’s the Daily Beast:
The only crime uncovered by prosecutors on Tuesday, Fox News host Sean Hannity insisted, was the crime of being too close to Donald Trump.
“Is it dangerous to be friends with Donald Trump?” Hannity asked at the top of his show. “We will call out the corruption justice system.”
Yeah, but that’s not really true though, is it? Manafort was found guilty of five tax fraud charges, one charge of hiding foreign bank accounts and two counts of bank fraud, and Cohen admitted eight counts of violating campaign finance laws, including tax and bank fraud in a plea deal with prosecutors.
The tape of Hannity is quite something – squirm, Sean, squirm:
Sadly, you know the Fox News sheeple will gobble it up.
You want proof that Sean is rattled? How about some rapid-fire errors:
Ha, first he introduces a Trump rally clip that doesn’t play. Then he turns to the wrong camera to introduce Ed Henry when the screen is showing Gregg Jarrett.

Yeah, that man is shook.
I wonder if he will ever go full Bill O’Reilly?
Never gets old.
As news of the Manafort and Cohen legal woes dominated coverage across all the major American news networks, Fox took a different approach.
