Right-wing radio host and Fox News Sean Hannity went after fellow Fox anchor Tucker Carlson, blasting “stupid commentators on TV” just minutes after Carlson contradicted his position on possible further U.S. military action against Iran.
Breaking ranks with the majority of his Fox colleagues, Carlson on Monday criticized the U.S. drone strike that killed top Iranian general Qassem Soleimani, questioning why the same people who’d fervently denounced America’s intelligence agencies in the recent past were now so willing to trust them over its claims that Iran was posing “an imminent threat” to U.S. national security.
“These are the same people who lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction way back in 2002, and by doing that got us into an utterly pointless war that dramatically weakened our country. The people pushing conflict with Iran are the same people who did that. It seems like about 20 minutes ago, we were denouncing these very people as the deep state and pledging never to trust them again without verification. But now, for some reason, we do see to trust them, implicitly and completely. In fact, we believe whatever they tell us, no matter how outlandish,” Clarson said.
Hannity, however, on his prime time show that follows Carlson’s, cheered the killing of Soleimani by ranting against the “rage-filled idiots in the media mob and elsewhere” who have been critical of the assassination.
In a segment he called “How to Deal With the World’s Most Evil Terrorists for Dummies,” Hannity hyped up the need for military action against Iran by stating its “aggression must be checked or it will get worse. And it has gotten worse and worse and worse. They must know their hostile actions have consequences.”
“Despite the whining and the complaining, predictably, among Democrats and the stupid commentators on TV in the media mob, top military experts agree the president’s strategy is effective,” he added, noting he didn’t want to see U.S. boots on the ground.
