Sean Hannity issued the one apology no one ever thought they would hear
Sean Hannity is one of the most popular hosts on Fox News.
That’s made Hannity a target over the years.
And now Sean Hannity issued the one apology no one ever thought they would hear.
Towards the end of Tucker Carlson’s show on Tuesday, Carlson blasted Amazon owner Jeff Bezos for using The Washington Post he also owns to continually press the case for longer and more stringent coronavirus lockdowns.
Carlson pointed out that as lockdowns forced businesses to close, Americans became more dependent on Amazon for online retail shopping.
This led to Bezos – already the world’s richest man – to increasing his wealth by $13 billion in just a single day.
“I’m not against wealth accumulation, I’m not against free enterprise, but $13 billion in a day suggests something is skewed with the system, no?” Carlson asked guest Chadwick Moore.
This segment came at the end of Carlson’s show where he handed it off to Sean Hannity when Hannity appeared to contradict Carlson.
“People can make money, they provide goods and services people want, need, and desire? That’s America. It’s called freedom, capitalism, and as long as it’s honest, right? People decide,” Hannity said in response.
Viewers thought the two popular hosts were fighting and Carlson looked taken aback.
But Hannity later clarified on social media he only heard the end of Carlson’s segment and thought he was agreeing with Carlson’s support for honest capitalism.
“I was in the chair one minute before airtime and I was specifically responding to the end of Tucker’s interview when he said he supported honest capitalism, I had not heard any of the other parts of the interview,” Hannity wrote on social media.
