Throughout his four years in the White House, FOX News’ Sean Hannity was one of President Trump’s most enthusiastic supporters. The popular nighttime conservative talk show host stood by the former president through the most difficult challenges of his presidency.
However, there have been some startling revelations over the last year-and-a-half since the highly successful president was manipulated out of office. Hannity has been discovered to have supported some strange views that seem counterproductive to what most conservatives believe.
A series of text messages seem to allude to the notion that Hannity did not agree with various parts of President Trump’s post January 6 strategy. Hannity openly condemned the violence, but likewise defended the peaceful protesters.
As one of President Trump’s staunchest allies in the media, the sham January 6 commission has continually twisted much of Hannity’s involvement. The truth is that he has blasted the commission from its very inception.
Nevertheless, there are still some perplexing revelations that have dogged the popular talk show host. Hannity is said to have suggested a pardon for Joe Biden’s crooked son, Hunter. According to text messages obtained by the sham January 6 panel, Hannity proposed the idea.
Apparently, he wanted to run the suggestion by former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany. The text messages are supposedly relaying the sentiments of a conversation Hannity had with President Trump the day after the Capitol Hill Protests.
Sadly, this appears to be actually true. Hannity secretly proposed in a text to Trump spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany that Trump pardon HUNTER BIDEN, who Hannity slams almost every night on his show as a corrupt reprobate #GOPSwamphttps://t.co/sJjF0Ztzv6

Hannity tried to sell President Trump on the strategy, saying that such an act might help “smooth things over” after January 6’s troublesome developments. Ultimately, the idea fizzled. It joined other suggestions made to President Trump about the election and pending inauguration.
Hannity suggested that it would be wise politically to have “no more stolen election talk” and that President Trump should strongly consider “attending the inauguration.” Despite President Trump’s showing mild interest, the pardon idea was “never seriously considered.”
Is too much being made of Sean Hannity’s seemingly counterproductive remarks towards the end of Donald Trump’s presidency? The left is trying to run with them as evidence. But are they evidence of anything more than Hannity’s close association with the Trump White House?
When faced with difficult decisions amid challenging circumstances, people make suggestions. Not all these suggestions should be assumed to be steadfast beliefs about how to proceed. The stolen election and the January 6 chaos meet the criteria as highly challenging situations.
Is it not possible that Sean Hannity was actually being a stalwart for President Trump by suggesting otherwise unpopular avenues to explore? Every parrot in the liberal mainstream media wants to turn conservatives against themselves. We’d be wise to exercise extreme caution when condemning someone without all the facts.
