Sean Hannity Just Turned His Back on Assaulter Roy Moore, Giving Him 24 Hours to Drop Out of the Senate Race

It’s been quite a week for conservative talk show host Sean Hannity. On Monday, his fans were smashing Keurig coffee machines to show their support for him and his lenient treatment of child molesters (we’ll get to that in a second). Now, Hannity appears to have performed a complete 180 on his views. He’s now calling for the child molester in question to turn himself in.

He’s also been involved in several relationships with underage girls. According to a report by the Washington Post, Moore was engaged in a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32 years old. Another woman has come forward and claimed that Moore tried to rape her when she was 16. Obviously, this isn’t the kind of guy you want to be defending, right? Well, that didn’t stop Sean Hannity.

“Every single person in this country deserves the presumption of innocence,” Hannity said. He appeared to be defending Moore’s actions and implying that the incidents had been consensual. Yikes.

This inspired some of Hannity’s fans to “boycott” Keurig and smash the coffeemakers in protest. There are a few big problems with this plan. First of all, smashing a coffeemaker that you’ve already paid for does nothing to hurt the company.  

Whatever happened to the time when people thought child molestation was a bad thing? Remember Pizzagate? Sure, the guy was a conspiracy theorist nut job who fired an assault rifle inside a pizza parlor full of innocent bystanders, but at least he did it because he thought it was full of child molesters, so… plus?

“Here’s where I am tonight,” Hannity said after sharing an interview he held with Moore. “Between this interview that I did and the inconsistent answers, between him saying ‘I never knew this girl’ and then that yearbook comes out. For me, the judge has 24 hours. He must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed. You must remove any doubt. If he can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.”  

Hannity may be a tough-talking, chest-pounding pseudo tough guy, but even he recognizes the power of advertisers. No advertisers means no show, and Hannity needs his show.

After all, you can’t un-smash a coffeemaker. It’s become more and more clear what Hannity finds important — and it’s not having any sense of moral compass or defending children against predators. It’s money.
