Fox News’ Sean Hannity Issues Warning To People Saying Donald Trump ‘Caved’

“You don’t really know the Donald Trump I know.”

Many right-wing figures lined up Friday night to criticize President Donald Trump for temporarily ending the government shutdown for three weeks without having convinced Congress to fund his proposed U.S.-Mexico border wall.

Controversial commentator Ann Coulter called Trump “the biggest wimp ever to serve as president” and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs said Trump had been “whipped” by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

Fox News’ Sean Hannity, however, had a different take.

The “Hannity” host, who is a staunch supporter of the president and even joined him on stage at a Missouri rally ahead of the 2018 midterms, insisted that Trump still “holds all the cards” when it comes to negotiating with Congress for the wall.

Hannity claimed that Trump would simply declare a national emergency to obtain the funds if he couldn’t seal a deal for the wall with Congress during the next three weeks that the government is reopened.

“Anyone out there, by the way, thinking President Trump caved today, you don’t really know the Donald Trump I know,” Hannity claimed in the clip shared online by Media Matters. “He will secure the border, one way or another.”

Trump Associate Roger Stone Indicted In Mueller Investigation

Roger Stone has a long reputation as a GOP "dirty trickster."

The longtime Republican political operative was in touch with WikiLeaks and Russian hackers during the 2016 campaign.

Roger Stone, an eccentric longtime Republican strategist with a tattoo of Richard Nixon’s face on his back, was indicted Friday on charges that include obstruction of an official proceeding, false statements and witness tampering.

A federal grand jury impaneled by special counsel Robert Mueller charged Stone in a seven-count indictment. 

Stone ― who worked on presidential campaigns for Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Bob Dole and others ― took credit for Donald Trump’s presidential run and served as an informal adviser after he left Trump’s campaign in August 2015.

The July 2018 indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers in connection with the hack of a Democratic National Committee server during the 2016 election referred to Stone as “a person who was in regular contact with senior members of the presidential campaign of Donald J. Trump.”

Stone has described his contact with the Russians ― who used the handle “Guccifer 2.0” ― as “benign.” He has also admitted to being in contact with Julian Assange of WikiLeaks during the Trump campaign.

Stone told The Washington Post that he met with a Russian national who wanted to sell Trump damaging information on Hillary Clinton for a sum of $2 million. The man had previously worked as an informant for the FBI, but told the Post that he was not working on the FBI’s behalf when he met with Stone in May 2016.

Stone’s indictment came after his associate Randy Credico, a radio show host, testified before the grand jury.

WARREN STAFFER ASKS HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGE FOR ‘AUDIENCE DEMOGRAPHICS’ AHEAD OF SPEECH

The office of Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Elizabeth Warren appears to have been unaware she was set to speak at a historically black university last month when a staffer asked the school to provide the “demographics” of the graduating class.

“Would you be available sometime today or tomorrow to discuss a few details about the ceremony?” Christopher Huntley, a speechwriter for Warren, asked in an email addressed to Larry Jones of Morgan State University that was obtained by The Daily Caller. “It would be helpful to get a better understanding of audience demographics and the makeup of the graduating class in addition to any unique messages that will be associated with this year’s ceremony.”

Warren was set to speak at Morgan State University, which qualifies as a historically black college and university (HBCU). HBCU’s are institutions that were established prior to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the goal of serving black students.

The graduating ceremony took place last month and was notable because Warren acknowledged she was not a person of color despite having stated that she is Native American in the past.

“I’m not a person of color. And I haven’t lived your life or experienced anything like the subtle prejudice, or more overt harm, that you may have experienced just because of the color of your skin,” Warren said. “Rules matter, and our government — not just individuals within the government, but the government itself — has systematically discriminated against Black people in this country.”

Warren released a DNA test in October in an apparent attempt to combat President Donald Trump’s repeated attacks on her alleged Native American ancestry. The test results showed that she has a Native American ancestor “in the range of 6–10 generations ago.”

She had been identified as a minority multiple times in her past, including in her professional career. A 1997 Fordham Law Review article identified Warren as Harvard Law School’s “first woman of color.” 

Earlier this month, she announced that she was forming an exploratory committee to determine whether or not she will officially run for president in 2020.

Warren’s office did not respond to a request for comment.
