Less than 24 hours after Washington Post fact-checkers reported that President Trump has made more than 16,000 false or misleading statements in the three years since he was inaugurated, Fox News host Sean Hannity characterized Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), one of the lead House managers in President Trump’s Senate impeachment trial, as a “beady-eyed lunatic” and “the worst liar in politics.”
“They said it’s a slam dunk. Now the House managers, they got their impeachment, they have their trial, everyone is sworn in, dressed up and ready to go,” Hannity, a staunch supporter of the president, said in a monologue.
“Present your slam-dunk case,” Hannity continued as the trial extended into his 9 p.m. time slot. “They didn’t call the witnesses that they now are demanding to be called. They have the sole power to impeach, [but] they think the U.S. Senate now should spend months doing their constitutional job.”
“The beady-eyed lunatic you’ve been watching on your screen all day is, perhaps, my view the worst liar in all of politics,” the host added in reference to House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff. “He said he had significant evidence, for three years, he told us — is Trump-Russia collusion. That was a lie.”

Hannity also said that any Republican who allow House Democrats “special treatment they don’t deserve” will “be adding legitimacy to this unconstitutional corruption.”
“If you give the House Democrats — if your representatives allow the House Democrats the special treatment they don’t deserve, that’s unconstitutional. You are literally a part of what is a charade that will live in perpetuity, that is ripping this country apart. You, your representatives, your senators will be adding legitimacy to this unconstitutional corruption.”
