Sean Hannity used his opening monologue on Tuesday’s show to highlight what he sees as liberal hypocrisy amid the Harvey Weinstein scandal.
After playing the disturbing 2015 audio obtained by the New Yorker of Weinstein admitting to a model that he touched her breasts without consent, the host then recounted some of the other allegations of sexual misconduct by the movie mogul.
“I don’t remember Hollywood stars speaking out against Clinton or talking about his issues that he had to deal with,” Hannity declared. “Or how Hillary defended him.”
Weinstein was a donor to the Clinton campaign and the Clinton Foundation.
“I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein. The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated. Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior,” Clinton said in a statement.
“I have explained over and over on this show, liberals love to be so sanctimonious,” Hannity continued. “Holier-than-thou. They are really hypocrites. They claim moral authority over Republicans and conservatives over issues like women’s rights, gay rights, religious freedom.”
Hannity also played a clip from the 2003 Academy Awards, showing Meryl Streep cheering when accused child rapist Roman Polanski won the award for Best Director, saying that the “hypocrisy is stunning.”
