Fox News host Sean Hannity, who has supported Republican U.S. Senate nominee Roy Moore through four allegations of sexual misconduct, began to distance himself from Moore on Nov. 14.
Hannity, who has lost numerousadvertisers because of his support for Moore, claimed that Moore’s fifth accuser changes the situation, notes The Washington Post.
Hannity said that Moore he had 24 hours to come up with a new explanation:
You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies. You must remove any doubt. If he can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.
Matthew Gertz of Media Matters, which has pushed for a boycott of Hannity’s show, told Free Speech TV’s The Bill Press Show the Hannity is basically the unofficial “spokesman” for the Republican Party and pushing the party line regarding Moore (video below).
