Hannity kicks Democratic Congressman off show, calls him a “total waste of time”

Apparently Fox News host Sean Hannity isn’t afraid to kick guests off his show if they refuse to play hardball!

The conservative pundit booted Minnesota Congressman Keith Ellison from his show last night after the Democrat launched into a six minute tirade in which he accused Hannity of being a yellow journalist and party hack.

“Quite frankly you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison said.

Ellison was invited onto the primetime show to discuss President Obama’s position on the upcoming sequestration, which is set to begin on Friday. He apparently decided to chide the Fox News host after Hannity played a video montage featuring clips of Obama discussing the sequestration at various locations, including his visit Tuesday to a Newport News, Va. shipyard.

After berating Hannity for violating “every journalistic ethic I’ve ever heard of,” Ellison continued on, calling the Fox News host a “shill for the Republican party.” Unfortunately for Ellison, Hannity was able to point out that he is actually a member of the Conservative Party of New York State. Hannity even offered to bet with Ellison about his registration during the segment.

Hannity attempted on several occasions to end the rant, including joking with Ellison that he should continue on with his rant (apparently Ellison thought he was being serious!) and asking questions about the upcoming sequestration, but that didn’t stop him, ultimately forcing Hannity to boot the Congressman from the program.

Hannity later told Newsbusters that Ellison’s meltdown “was actually funny to watch” and that the tirade could be a wakeup call for many Americans who follow Obama, and not the Democratic party.

“It just shows how reckless, radical, and extreme the modern day Democratic Party has become,” Hannity said in response to the segment. “As Americans continue to see the President’s policies fail, I suspect it will dawn on them Obama and the Democrats have nothing but empty rhetoric, scare tactics, false promises, and they deserve to be fired. I mark this night as the beginning of the end for the Obama Democrats.”

This is not the first time that Hannity and Ellison have butted heads on the show. The two were involved in a heated argument back in 2011 over the controversy surrounding the construction of a mosque in Lower Manhattan.

    The congressman made a fool of himself!

  2. Shirley Jensen says:

    I am so sick of the liberals telling the American people WHAT they should see, and what they should know…and THE BLAME GAME!! They are nasty, lying bigots!!

  3. Jonathan Fields says:

    Sean isn’t a Journalist he’s a Commentator. I have a hard time believing Ellison is a congressman. Watching Sean and him talk reminds me of the things I see at work. I’m in corrections and It was like watching an Officer talking to a verbally hostile offender waiting for back up to arrive. The congressman was trying to make a point but he kept repeating himself and it’s as if he lacked the intelligence and vocabulary to make his point. The only thing missing was the congressman using profanity cause his body language and tone were on par. I guess (in most cases) politicians and criminals really are cut from the same cloth.

  4. J. Miller says:

    The Congressman really did make a fool of himself. His type of Democrat/Socialist is exactly what is putting the US down the tubes. If this continues, you won’t recognize this country in another 20 years. I’m beginning to think its too late. This has been going on for far too long and now has become the way of thinking for the younger generation. The nanny state mentality appears to be winning. But one day everyone will wake up when they realize how many lliberties they have lost, unfortuneately you won’t be able to go back.

  5. Roger Mitchell says:

    Well Hannity has never called himself a journalist in fact over the yrs I have heard Hannity state that fact and restate that fact he is a commentator like Al Sharpton and Jessie Jackson and several other idiots ..In their world Keith Ellison is a great man , They always get fired up like this and they will never be over talked or out talked they then just shout louder and longer.. And get on a rant that just never stops whats that woman from Fl. she wears those stupid cowboy hats LOL I’d not vote that woman dogcatcher and as for Ellison behaviour that typical and its only going to get worse as they stick it too da man.. Mo money Mo Money just Mo Mo…

Calling for cooperation, Obama engages in confrontation

DCCC fundraises off shutdown that didn't happen
Democrats really jumped the gun on this one.
