Sean Hannity accidentally referred to Barack Obama as “President Clinton” while discussing the indictments against former Trump campaign officials on his Fox News show on Monday.
Hannity opened his program on Monday by dismissing the news that former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort had been indicted by a grand jury impaneled by special counsel Robert Mueller.
After saying that the indictments showed no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russian government, Hannity attempted to pivot to a discussion about the 2010 sale of the Toronto-based mining company Uranium One to a Russian corporation.
“Here’s what we do have tonight,” Hannity said. “This is what the media will ignore. This is what matters. These are the facts. This is where the evidence comes in. What did Hil– What did President Clinton, uh, or President Clinton wannabe President Obama and key members of the administration– What did they know about the Uranium One scandal?”

I think Sean Hannity is having a trauma-induced dissociative episode on national television. https://t.co/OTQI7DjfMv
