Sean Hannity urged President Trump to ‘purge’ all the undercover politicians working for Obama in his administration. “For weeks, we’ve been warning you about the deep state Obama holdover government bureaucrats who are hell-bent on destroying this president, President Trump. Tonight, it’s time for the Trump administration to begin to purge these saboteurs before it’s too late,” said Hannity.
“While president Lincoln sought to unify his party through cabinet selections, he also executed an extensive government purge. He fired over 75 percent, nearly 1,200 people out of 1,500 bureaucrats that worked in the executive branch who President Lincoln feared could be disloyal,” explained Hannity.
“It’s time now for President Trump to follow Abraham Lincoln’s example and a fire anyone and everyone who is actively working against him in government. After all, even former president Bill Clinton — he utilized this tactic back in 1993. He fired all 93 U.S. attorneys — all of them,” said Hannity.
One day after Hannity said this opening monologue on his show, Jeff Sessions fired all 46 remaining U.S. Attorneys appointed by Obama. No one thought there was a connection between these two events. Not even Sean Hannity. The only one who would believe something so far-fetched is CNN’s Don Lemon.
“Coincidence, you think? Or is this another example of the president having a knee-jerk reaction to a right-wing news story?” asked Lemon to his panel. He went on to say that he thinks Hannity gave President Trump a direct order to fire these people. Sean Hannity responded to Lemon with a single perfect tweet. “Don, I have great respect for the work you do. Clearly you do NOT understand @POTUS He is his own man. Study Lincoln and Clinton purges!!” he tweeted.
