Hannity: "The one thing that Jack did give us was an opening, I have a means of communicating with him. I'll put you on hold, give us your evidence, and I swear I'll forward it right over to him"

CALLER: Hey Sean, thanks a lot. I heard your interview with Jack from Twitter, but there's a huge other issue -- Twitter deletes MAGA retweets, and I've got all the proof and copies. I'm a big Trump supporter, big MAGA account, and I have an app that shows all my deleted retweets, Mr. Hannity --
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Well, I'll tell you right now, the one thing that Jack did give us was an opening, I have a means of communicating with him. I'll put you on hold, give us your evidence, and I swear I'll forward it right over to him.
He said he wants to hear about all of this, and the thing that I liked about him is he is very open with the fact that he has every intention of making sure that he gets to the bottom of it. He admits that they haven't been perfect, they've made mistakes, but they want to get it right.
CALLER: If there were threats or profanity in my tweets, or anybody else's, I'd completely get it, but here they target the account. My Twitter handle is @AnthemRespect, and on my timeline, I've got all the proof, I've got copies of all the deleted retweets -- they just go boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, boom. boom.
I did one on Major League Baseball, standing for the anthem, in comparison to NFL, a couple days ago -- bam, they hammered it, knocked out about 30 percent of my retweets.
HANNITY: Wow. All right, stay on hold, we'll let Lynda pick it up from there.
