During her first appearance on Fox News’ “Hannity” as an employee of the once conservative news network, host Sean Hannity spent the first minute or so of the segment attempting to endear himself to the former DNC chairwoman.
Hannity had Brazile on as a guest last night, in what represents her first appearance on Fox News as a paid employee. He spent the first few minutes of the interview stroking her ego and virtue signalling about Fox News’ commitment to having on air personalities with diverse opinions.
As he announced her, Brazile stopped him in the first few seconds and said “First of all you should say, ‘Welcome Donna!'” This prompted Hannity to spend the next minute or so feeding the ego of the scandalized Democrat.
“I’ve known you for years. We have had a very friendly, I would say, cordial relationship,” said Hannity. “We’ve met at a lot of debates, we’ve met at a lot of conventions. We always have a good time. We ask how each other are doing, and we never agree on much, do we?”
He then added “By the way, just for being on this show you will get in trouble with some Democrats. ‘Why are you on Hannity’s show, why do you talk to him, he’s not a nice guy!’ Then you’re going to have to tell them, well he’s not that bad.”
Brazile then noted her previous appearances on Hannity before becoming a Fox News employee, when he allowed her to advertise her new book.
Hannity then expressed his gleefulness at Fox News’ having “varying opinions.”
“Well welcome to the Fox News Channel, and for those that say we don’t have varying opinions, I could go down the list,” said Hannity, “and if I do I’ll probably get in trouble, so I’m going to stay away from trouble for once in my life.”
The Fox News host then attempted to start the “lightning round” discussion Brazile was brought on the show to have, only to have her refuse to provide straight answers to his questions for the next 10 minutes.
Brazile was hired by the formerly conservative news network in the immediate wake of the suspension of Judge Jeanine Pirro, who the network threw under the bus after she questioned whether possibly anti-Semitic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s apparent adherence to Sharia Law makes her unable to perform her duties and uphold the United States Constitution.
As Trump Leaves Office, Media Cites Ineffectiveness of Lockdowns and Democratic Leaders Display Eagerness to Reopen
Right on cue.
With President Donald Trump’s impending exit from the White House, many are starting to perceive pivots from Democratic leaders and the mainstream media on the ineffectiveness of lockdowns and the reopening of society.
For example, Newsweek ran an article Thursday titled “COVID Lockdowns May Have No Clear Benefit vs Other Voluntary Measures, International Study Shows.” The study, published in the European Journal of Clinical Investigation, found through a mathematical model that there was “no clear, significant beneficial effect of [more restrictive measures] on [COVID-19] case growth in any country.”
This is just one study, of course, so it may not reflect objective reality any more than one study which concludes that lockdowns saved “millions of lives.” But after getting bombarded with messages from the media that lockdowns were necessary—with the opposite message found only on explicitly conservative outlets like Big League Politics—it may seem too coincidental to see such a story while the changing of the presidential guard takes place.
Not only that, it also comes at a time when some Democratic leaders appear to be chomping at the bit to reopen restaurants, bars, and schools—after several months of harsh insistence that they all must stay closed in the name of “safety” and “public health.”
On Monday, for example, Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York called for the reopening of the state’s economy “smartly and safely.”
“We simply cannot stay closed until the vaccine hits critical mass. The cost is too high. We will have nothing left to open. We must reopen the economy, but we must do it smartly and safely,” Cuomo tweeted.

Mayor of Chicago Lori Lightfoot put out a similar call on Thursday, saying that bars and restaurants need to reopen “as quickly as possible” because it will help those businesses survive and reduce the number of large private parties and gatherings.
And incoming president Joe Biden recently pitched a $175 billion plan to return children to school, $130 billion of which would be for public elementary, middle, and high schools, the other $35 billion for colleges and universities. Many teachers unions stubbornly refused to return to in-person classes for the longest time, but now that Biden has come out in support of in-person classes, don’t be surprised to see them suddenly change their tune.
The left is so predictable, isn’t it?
