Sean Hannity gives ultimatum: Judge Roy Moore has 24 hours to explain everything or drop out — Video

On Tuesday, Fox News talk show host Sean Hannity issued an ultimatum to Judge Roy Moore — either explain everything to his satisfaction in 24 hours or drop out of the race.

“Before we close tonight I want to address the new very serious misconduct allegations against Judge Roy Moore. If you watch this program regularly you know I will not rush to judgment, we have seen in the media and politicians get it wrong so many times, I’ve outlined all of that,” he said.

“In light of new information about Judge Roy Moore, we have to address this issue tonight. We should be troubled by two things: when the Washington Post story first broke I said that the allegations it should be taken seriously, they should be fully investigated. It’s a 14-year-old girl. We need to discover the truth,” he added.

“I also said, I can understand why women wait years to come forward to because of the evil that in cases where they are guilty, it’s evil trauma, I can understand it, people have a difficult time talking about it years later.”

He then outlined what he called inconsistencies in Moore’s answers.

“He denied knowing this fifth accuser but this accuser has brought forth a yearbook that he appeared to sign ‘to a sweeter, more beautiful girl, I could not say Merry Christmas, love Roy Moore,’” Hannity said.  That yearbook signature, however, have raised a number of questions.

“Here’s where I am tonight: Between this interview that I did and inconsistent answers come up between him saying I never knew this girl and then that yearbook comes out,” he said.

“You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistency,” Hannity continued, demanding the judge “remove any doubt. If you can’t do this, then you need to get out of this race.”

“The American people deserve 100 percent truth and honesty. We needed to correct answers first time on issues of this serious. You owe that to the people of Alabama, to the Republican Party that you represent and to the country which is suffering under so many problems. We deserve answers and consistent answers,” he added.

The ultimatum followed a boycott campaign against Hannity that saw people destroying their Keurig coffee makers after the company pulled out of sponsoring his show.

They were joined by several other companies, like Realtor.com, that promised not to advertise on Hannity’s Fox News show.

One of those companies was ConAgra, the maker of Hebrew National hot dogs.  According to the Business Insider:

Hebrew National, Reddi-wip, and Marie Callender’s stopped running ads on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show a few months ago – but the news has come to light at a time when the show is in the spotlight.

A spokesperson from Conagra Brands, the company that owns all three food brands, told Business Insider on Monday that the company had “removed Hannity from our advertising plans for all Conagra brands.”

“Our advertising is not intended to be an endorsement of or sponsorship of any particular program,” hot dog brand Hebrew National posted on Twitter earlier in the day.

On Tuesday, a Conagra Brands spokesperson clarified the timing of the company’s decision to cut advertising, adding that it had no relation to the current controversy with Sean Hannity.

Was Hannity’s ultimatum a response to the loss of advertisers?  Some seem to think so:



No doubt, we haven’t seen the last of this…
