Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed Rachel Maddow on Monday night, calling her MSNBC’s “top conspiracy theorist.”
Hannity introduced what he billed as a brand new segment, calling out America’s worst liberal conspiracy theorists of the “destroy Trump propaganda press” and promised to shine a light on the culprits. He said the media has become “deranged” and single out NBC.
Hannity then played a series of examples that he felt demonstrated Maddow’s habit of spreading anti-Trump rumors, including when she said Venezuelans were “enraged” by a White House filing.
“I get it. If the dog bites, if the bee stings, if you’re feeling sad, it’s got to be Donald Trump’s fault,” he said. “It’s pretty unbelievable.”
Hannity then moved on to the time Maddow theorized “Trump can be a gateway drug” for the KKK and that the president is turning America into a dictatorship, playing footage of both instances.
The Fox News veteran said Maddow has also pushed “bizarre” theories about members of Trump’s administration, including Vice President Mike Pence. He played what he called a “totally false” acquisition of Maddow saying Pence didn’t want to spend money of curing AIDs.
This isn’t the first time Hannity has mocked an MSNBC star, he regularly spars with “Morning Joe” namesake Joe Scarborough on Twitter and his fans recently called for a boycott of Maddow’s show.
