Fox News’ Sean Hannity assembled an all-white panel to discuss racism.
The all-white panel talked about Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ censuring of black ESPN host, Jemele Hill because she tweeted Trump is a “white supremacist who has largely surrounded himself w/ other white supremacists.” Sanders was asked about Hill’s tweets during Wednesday’s daily White House briefing, and she said the comment should be considered a “fireable offense.”
The conservative panel consisted of Fox News’ Tomi Lahren, a “psychology expert,” Gina Louden, and political commentator Danielle McLaughlin.
In their conversation about racism, Hannity failed to mention Trump’s “both sides” are to blame comments following the Charlottesville white supremacist rally, and lamented that he’s sick of liberals referring to Trump supporters as racists.
Hannity complained, “The most amazing thing and I can’t take it anymore, Danielle, I don’t like that conservatives, that the president — this is a lie, and this is a narrative that happens every two years and every four years, ‘Republicans, conservatives, the president are racist, sexist, misogynistic’ — you know what, stop lying about who we are. Tomi, we are not racist, nor is the president, nor are the people around him.”
The white panel then discussed whether or not it was appropriate for Sanders to call for Hill’s termination while she was conducting a news briefing.
Hannity argued, “I don’t do boycotts or call for firings,” he said — but concluded the segment by asserting that “it looks like conservatives are the ones that are open minded, the ones that believe in freedom.”
Did I mention Hannity and his panel were all white?
