Fox News host Sean Hannity attempted to turn the tables on CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert, who performed scathing monologue targeting President Donald Trump Monday night.
“Stephen Colbert sinking to an all-time low,” said Hannity on Tuesday evening. “The alt-radical left, they stooped to a brand new low.”
Stephen Colbert, host of “The Late Show,” delivered a brutal monologue on Trump in defence of CBS newsman John Dickerson’s terse interview with Trump on Sunday. “John Dickerson is a fair-minded journalist, and one of the most competent people who will ever walk into your office, and you treat him like that,” Colbert said, before launching into a litany of insults against Trump.
“If we say those things, we are inflammatory,” said Fox News contributor Tomi Lahren on Hannity’s show Tuesday night. “If they say those things, they’re funny. It’s interesting how the world works.”
“I’d never call for anybody to boycott Stephen Colbert,” said Hannity. “You know how I’d boycott Stephen Colbert? It’s called ‘watching Jimmy Fallon.”
“I don’t even like Stephen Colbert — but I would not want anyone to try and shut him down or anyone else.”
