CNN has gotten quite the reputation for pushing some crazy fake stuff lately. If you thought their story about Trump hiring Russian hookers to pee on Obama’s bed was extreme, just wait…because this next story takes the freaking cake. Now CNN is concocting a story about one of FOX News’ main anchors that’s so extreme, it will no doubt destroy what was left of their reputation forever.
Liberals love painting conservatives as gun-toting nut-jobs. The latest target of their propaganda is Sean Hannity, who they are now blasting as a gun-toting lunatic who pulls guns on liberals up at the FOX News studio. In bold headlines all over CNN, their latest hit piece reads, ‘Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams.’
According to CNN, who cited three unnamed sources, Hannity turned on his weapon’s laser sight “causing a red dot to bob around on Williams’ body.” The sources said that the off-camera incident “clearly disturbed” Williams and others present, adding that Hannity “was showing off.”
Of course anyone reading the CNN story immediately thinks Hannity is about to be arrested and carted off to jail for pulling a gun on Williams. There’s just one small detail that they’re leaving out about the story however: It never even freaking happened! Even Juan Williams, the supposed “victim” of the story, came out saying that CNN’s story was a complete fabrication.
“This incident is being sensationalized – everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams said. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”
Because of CNN’s asinine news report, FOX News was forced to respond to the incident, saying it is now being “investigated.”
“Sean Hannity has been trained in firearm safety since he was 11 years old and has a license to carry a gun in five states, including New York,” Fox News told CNN in a statement. “The situation was thoroughly investigated and it was found that no one was put in any danger,” the Fox News spokesperson added, saying the incident was referred to the network’s legal and human resources departments.
The Fox News spokesperson also provided a statement from Hannity:
“While discussing the issue of firearms, I showed my good friend Juan Williams my unloaded firearm in a professional and safe manner for educational purposes only,” the statement read. “Every precautionary procedure that I have been trained in since the age of 11 was followed. I’ve had a conceal carry permit in five states for all of my adult life. Any other interpretation of this is outright false reporting.”
Hannity took to Twitter late Thursday night to deny CNN’s story saying, “Never pointed at anybody. Let’s be clear. Unloaded. Never pointed. I have been a gun safety advocate for years,” Hannity said on Twitter.
You’ve got to hand it to CNN…they are getting pretty damn creative with their stories. It’s truly unreal that they think Americans are going to fall for their fake propaganda!
