Sean Hannity has always been incredibly loyal to Donald Trump. The Fox News host took major heat for appearing on stage with Trump during a rally. And co-Fox anchor Tucker Carlson has reportedly mocked Hannity behind his back over his Trump sycophancy.
Trump was on Hannity’s mind on Friday while he discussed Vladimir Putin’s most recent rally. According to the Fox host, Putin channeled his inner-Trump.
Hannity told his radio audience, “It looks like Vladimir Putin is channeling his inner Donald Trump. He had a what looked like, it almost looked like the big house in Michigan, their football stadium I think holds a hundred and ten thousand people.”
The Fox host continued, “Putin had a massive Moscow rally. By the way, if you didn’t show up you probably got in trouble. My only guess, I’m sure many people showed up just out of fear. That’s what authoritarianism is all about, and we should know that by now.”
