Fox News host Sean Hannity was confronted on-air Monday night with news that the New York Times had obtained dozens of questions special counsel Robert Mueller was interested in asking President Donald Trump — and it did not go well.
“I am told by my sources tonight, that the New York Times is full of crap,” said Hannity “A lot of those questions are not the questions that the special counsel is asking. Clearly a leak by the special counsel’s office again with anonymous sources.”
It’s unclear who Hannity’s sources are given that he routinely insists he is not a journalist and prefers the label of “talk show host.”
“It is a disinformation campaign,” Hannity added later. “How stupid is it? They want to get in the president’s mind.”
