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.
President Trump Releases FULL 60 Minutes Interview To Counteract Fake News Bias
The interview has been released.
President Donald Trump released the full session of his interview with 60 Minutes presenter Lesley Stahl on Thursday morning, seeking to counteract deceptive edits on the part of liberal media network CBS.
The interview was uploaded on President Trump’s Facebook page on Thursday morning.
CBS’s Stahl can be seen engaging in charged political commentary during the Presidential interview, attempting to correct matter-of-fact statements from the President, such as responding “you know that’s not true” when he speaks of the strength of the economy before the coronavirus pandemic.
The two go on to discuss the national coronavirus response, with the President pointing to quickly decreasing mortality rates in the country that he attributes to what he calls the most stringent testing system in the world. The daily diagnoses of new coronavirus cases in the “progressive” European Union have surpassed those in the United States.

The President continues to call Stahl out as a fake news media personality throughout the duration of the interview, rebuking charged, biased questions and liberal Democrat talking points from the supposedly “neutral” legacy media news show.
60 Minutes had whined upon finding out that the President would release the full video of the 60 Minutes White House interview. They had hoped that they’d be able to color the exchange with deceptive and selective editing, producing a de facto campaign advertisement for Democrat Joe Biden as the President’s challenger proves unable or unwilling to meaningfully campaign.
CBS News Statement:
The White House’s unprecedented decision to disregard their agreement with CBS News and release their footage will not deter 60 Minutes from providing its full, fair and contextual reporting which presidents have participated in for decades. (1/4)

President Trump names China as the United States’ most potent foreign adversary in the interview, and points to the need for continued tough trade restrictions on the mercantilist-Communist dictatorship.
