Fox News host Sean Hannity tweeted his enthusiastic agreement Sunday when someone tweeted at him that Americans should work together to “make Russia great again.” Hannity was responding to a tweet from an account called “Donnie L’il Hands,” which he apparently did not realize was mocking him and Donald Trump.
Hannity has come under fire in recent days for his softball interviews of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, who U.S. intelligence agents claim received the hacked DNC emails from Russia. Until recently, Hannity was a fierce critic of both Assange and Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Hannity has since deleted the “Amen!” tweet, but followed up with the below.
Question; WW2, which enemy country did we have an alliance with to defeat the Nazis? https://t.co/xeHvbraGZW

. @seanhannity That would be Stalin's Russia, so it's a little surprising that you are worshipfully comparing Putin to Josef Stalin.
