Sean Hannity: Trump’s Jan 6th Pardon Comments Are Fine Because of Antifa

Donald Trump’s comments during his political rallies are generally off the wall. This weekend in Texas, though, the former president seemed to go farther than usual. His most alarming statement concerned pardoning the insurrectionists that stormed the United States Capitol last January 6th.

The next day, several Republican lawmakers condemned the words. But Fox News, as always, was there to give Trump cover. Sean Hannity said the comments were ok during his Tuesday radio show because Antifa exists.

The Fox host bloviated:

“You know, with all the talk about, “Oh, Donald Trump at his rally mentioned that he might pardon some of the people from the January 6 riot at the Capitol,” and — you know, where is the committee looking into the rioting and all the thousands of cops that were injured and the dozens of dead Americans and the billions in property damage?

You know, that was the summer of love zone, and what was happening in Portland every night and cities all across America, and rocks and bricks and Molotov cocktails, you know, being thrown at police officers. We have all of this video.

Is it — is it — If you don’t prosecute people you have on videotape committing crimes, isn’t that ostensibly the same thing as a pardon? Oh, nobody’s outraged about that.”
