Since the day he decided he was a Republican, the hosts of the Fox News hosts have gone out of their way to protect Donald Trump. He is their golden goose, and in their minds, he can do no wrong.It was no surprise that people like Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham tried to deflect any blame for the January 6th insurrection away from Trump.
It has now been revealed, though, that on that day, those hosts were desperate for Trump to stop the rioters. Jim Acosta called out the Fox hypocrites during his Saturday afternoon show.
The CNN host told his audience, “But what’s even more disgusting is that Fox News hosts Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity, they’ve been caught red-handed. Acting like North Korean State Television and lying to their viewers about what happened that day. Covering up the misdeeds of a wannabe dictator. Blaming Antifa sympathizers for January 6th and downplaying the violence in the days to follow. Guys, you’ve been busted on your bullsh*t.”
