Hannity Face-Plants On Mueller Firing Story [VIDEO]

Business Insider reports:

Following a New York Times report where President Donald Trump reportedly ordered special counsel Robert Mueller fired one month after he was chosen to oversee the Russia investigation, Fox News host Sean Hannity came out swinging on his program Thursday night.

“They’re trying to change the story,” Hannity said, referring to The Times’s report. “At this hour, The New York Times is trying to distract you.”

“And our sources, and I’ve checked in with many of them, they’re not confirming that tonight,” Hannity continued. “And the president’s attorney dismissed the story, and says, ‘Nope, no comment. We’re not going there.’ And how many times has The New York Times and others gotten it wrong.”

As you’ll see below, minutes later Hannity is forced to admit that Fox News sources had confirmed the New York Times report. He then immediately cuts to a police chase. Yup.
