Here’s Hannity saying President Clinton pic.twitter.com/XIiEcIiflU— Dusty (@DustinGiebel) October 31, 2017
Fox News host Sean Hannity seems a bit confused about who the president of the United States is.
Hannity opened the show with the words, “This may be one of the most important monologues I ever give on this” — and then shortly after referred to Hillary Clinton as “President Clinton.”
The Fox News host's deranged rant came after the network was criticized for not talking about special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation on President Donald Trump administration. Hannity undermined the recently unveiled allegations of money laundering against Trump’s former campaign chair Paul Manafort and the guilty plea of adviser George Papadopolous where he admitted to lying to FBI investigators about his links with Russia.
Instead, Hannity spent most of his segment trying to divert attention to the Republicans’ favorite scapegoat, Hillary Clinton, arguing there was “incontrovertible evidence” that the Clintons and their allies “sold out America’s national security interests.”
“What did President Clinton — or President Clinton wannabe… President Obama, and key members of the administration, what did they know about the Uranium One scandal?” the host said referencing to the allegations that Clinton, while she was secretary of state for President Barack Obama, negotiated a deal to sell uranium to a Russian nuclear energy agency.
The accusation was pushed by Trump during his presidential campaign. Trump last week, once again, mentioned the uranium deal, something he reguarly does to distract from other issues, like the Russian investigation.

Clinton, in fact, did not approve the sales.
Ever since the investigation into Trump administration started, Fox News has been obsessed with Clinton. During the weekend, the former secretary of state joked the network treated her as if she was running the government.
“It does strike me that, in the last few days at least, Fox News seems to think that’s where I live, in the White House," she said at a dinner for the Human Rights Campaign held in Washington, D.C. "Because they spend a disproportionate amount of their time talking about impeaching me.”
