The other day I said this:
Is Hannity still on Fox? If so, look for some sort of thin-gruel allegations against him too, sexual harassment or something else, before too long.
But even I didn’t expect them to exploit their victory this fast.
The latest conservative commentator to be accused of sexual misconduct is host Sean Hannity who was accused on the Pat Cambell Show by lawyer, political commentator, and frequent Fox News guest Debbie Schlussel. Debbie claimed on the show that Sean Hannity asked Schlussel to come back to his hotel twice after a book-signing event. Does this constitute sexual misconduct?
Doesn’t really matter. There’s blood in the water, the libtards smell it, and—unable to lay a finger on Trump, who doesn’t much give a shit what they shriek about, and doesn’t have to so far—they intend to lap up every drop.
Maybe there’s something to it, and maybe there ain’t. That, too, doesn’t matter. Last time I checked, verbally hitting on a girl doesn’t constitute sexual harassment, in any sort of legal sense. What does matter is that the Progressivists will use every tool in the box, for just as long as we let them. Fox News, now busily converting itself into CNN Lite under the prodding of the Left, isn’t the vehicle to stand up to them. The sad fact is, there really isn’t one right now.
But we’re gonna have to find one, or create one. I know I said the other day that I’m no fan of O’Reilly, and I ain’t. I never liked Hannity much, either; much as his heart may be in the right place, he’s completely inept, one of the most hapless and incompetent debaters I ever saw.
But he’s going to need defending against the shrill harpies now after his scalp. I don’t know what Schlussel is thinking here, or what axe she may have to grind against Hannity. But on the face of it, I don’t think inviting her back to his hotel constitutes much of anything beyond an ill-considered faux pas on the part of a guy who probably should have known better. For her to launch this assault now is puzzling, and worrisome. Whatever she hopes to achieve with it, it will NOT redound to the advantage of the side she has supposedly supported for years.
But if all that really happened is that Hannity invited her back to his hotel—no groping, no career-limiting threats, no intimidation, no nasty little quid pro quos explicit or implied…well, exactly who among us expect our TV personalities to grow into plaster saints, anyway?
And who among those who will piously express patented Lefty OUTRAGE! about this nothingburger will be the first to mention serial rapist Bill Clinton in the same breath, pray tell?
