SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Crazy, creepy, sleepy uncle Joe is now saying -- calling on Trump to condemn supporters. Well, the president already said earlier today the following --


“I disagree with it, I didn't chant, I tried to stop it early,” alright, you know, the problem with the media -- “Now you've got to condemn them,” your supporters.

Now, a lot of this gets down into what is the real interpretation here.

You know, one of the things -- there's always context, there's always texture. Sometimes, things are not exactly -- why did the audience in North Carolina feel as they feel about Congresswoman Omar? Why do they feel this way?

Now, Omar by the way, she's not doing particularly well in the polls, when the president has bad poll numbers -- by the way, he has his highest Gallup rating ever, he's up five points in Rasmussen.

The plurality of voters in another poll know that they're trying to call Trump a racist to bludgeon him for political purposes.

So, all of this is doing the typical boomerang that we always end up pointing out. The media doesn't get -- the harder they -- they can't help themselves, now people see what's going on. It's every second, every minute, every hour of every single day. This is what they do, they wake up, “How can I hate Trump today? Who can I use to bludgeon Trump with today?”
