Sean Hannity unleashes full wrath on NYT after paper details his advising relationship with Trump

The Blaze - 14 hours 20 min ago

Fox News host Sean Hannity lashed out at the New York Times Saturday after the outlet published a story about over the weekend detailing the advising relationships President Donald Trump has with two dozen or so advisers, including Hannity.

The Times report detailed the unofficial and official relationships Trump has with 20 different people including his wife, first lady Melania Trump, House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), Hannity, Fox News parent company owner Rubert Murdoch, Roger Stone and other family members including his two sons, his lawyer, other media members, business peers and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

Here’s what the Times wrote about Hannity:

Presidents always deploy surrogates to appear on television to spout their talking points, but Mr. Trump has expanded on that by developing relationships with sympathetic media figures like Mr. Hannity who also serve as advisers. Mr. Hannity, the Fox News host, defends Mr. Trump’s most controversial behavior in public, but privately, according to people close to Mr. Trump, he urges the president not to get distracted, and advises him to focus on keeping pledges like repealing the Affordable Care Act.

Hannity took to his Twitter account Saturday evening to fire back at the report in a series of rapid-fire tweets, where the Fox News host made his disdain for the newspaper very clear.

In his tweets, Hannity accused the Times of colluding with Hillary Clinton in last year’s presidential election, labeld the newspaper as a “fake news” outlet and inquired weather or not he was “surveilled and unmasked” by the Times and National Security Agency because he has “never” talked with the Times — about Trump, at least.

@nytimes You colluded with HRC in 2016. It's none of your business who i do or do not talk too. Total fake news speculation about me/@POTUS

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 22, 2017

@nytimes Any conversation I have with ANYONE is supposed to be PRIVATE. I have NEVER talked to you. Was I surveilled and unmasked by u/NSA?

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 22, 2017

The @nytimes has no clue who I talk to as I refuse to EVER TALK TO THEM! @POTUS knows you are FAKE NEWS and I doubt he talks to u either.

— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) April 22, 2017

Maggie Haberman, a White House correspondent for the Times who co-authored the story with fellow Times White House reporter Glenn Thrush, fired back at Hannity for his reaction, given that the story was “hardly critical” of the Fox host.

W all due respect, we were interested in who POTUS talks to, not you, and several ppl close to him cited you

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 22, 2017

Also reached out to Fox News pr, who took no issue w it. And it was hardly critical of you. Not sure why the reax

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 22, 2017

She added in a subsequent tweet that it’s “widely known,” even to people not as well-sourced or experienced in Washington politics as Haberman, that Hannity is a close unofficial adviser to Trump.

@RosieGray @GlennThrush It's really widely known for folks around POTUS, even attenuated ones, that he talks to Hannity

— Maggie Haberman (@maggieNYT) April 22, 2017

Thrush also added a tweet to the mix:

I was once sitting with a Republican elected official preparing for an interview when he got an email from u giving him political advice

— Glenn Thrush (@GlennThrush) April 22, 2017

Hannity replied to Haberman’s tweets on Sunday by inquiring if she has ever “publicly commented on how @wikileaks revealed the @nytimes colluded” with Clinton. Hannity also took issue with the fact that Haberman allegedly didn’t contact him for the story and that the Times has a “biased anti-Trump agenda.

Indiana police: Muslim professor charged with fabricating anti-Islamic hate crimes, assault

The Blaze - 15 hours 21 min ago

An Indiana State University professor was arrested Friday for allegedly fabricating anti-Muslim threats and an assault.

Azhar Hussain, 56, an assistant professor of aviation technology, was arrested and booked into the Vigo County jail Friday on one charge of felony obstruction of justice and one charge of misdemeanor harassment, according to the Terre-Haute Tribune-Star.

More from the Tribune-Star:

The charges stem from a series of emails that were received on campus containing anti-Muslim messages and threats of potential violence against members of the Muslim community, according to the university.

The first report of the emails occurred on March 8. The messages specifically mentioned Hussain as a target. On March 24, Hussain reported an assault in the College of Technology in which he said he was attacked from behind as he was entering his office early that morning. He told police he was thrown to the floor.

He said he had not seen his attacker, and no words were spoken. ISU Police at the time said four people in the vicinity were unable to corroborate his story, saying they’d seen no suspicious activity or people.

While a motive for the alleged fabrication hasn’t yet been established, police said Hussain was trying to earn sympathy from university administrators as being the victim of anti-Muslim hate crimes. That’s because the school already had plans to not renew Hussain’s faculty position after the 2017-2018 academic year over poor teaching performance.

“Based upon the investigation, it is our belief that Hussain was trying to gain sympathy by becoming a victim of anti-Muslim threats, which he had created himself,” Joseph Newport, ISU’s chief of police, told the Tribune-Star.

“It is extremely unfortunate that this situation caused undue concern on other members of the ISU community,” he explained.

Investigators discovered the anti-Muslim hate emails had been sent to Hussain by Hussian after they were able to track the emails back to the location where they were sent. ISU police were assisted by the Indiana State Police, an ISU computer engineer, the FBI and the Vigo County prosecutor’s office during the course of the investigation.

Hussian has been suspended from his teaching duties at the school and university administrators are actively working to dismiss him completely, according to the Star-Tribune.
