Fox News host Sean Hannity dismissed the brutal murder of Washington Post correspondent and U.S. resident, Jamal Khashoggi, by asking where the same outrage was during “Benghazi.”
During an interview with Rush Limbaugh, the right-wing radio host accused “the left” of trying to blame Khashoggi’s murder on Trump.
Limbaugh, “I think this is a precarious time for the Trump administration because the Left is trying to use this Khashoggi death, tie it to Trump. They are trying to get Trump blamed for everything,” Limbaugh said before listing the positive changes Saudi Arabia’s deputy crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, was doing in his country.
“He was getting rid of the Wahhabi influence, which is where terrorist Islam comes from,” he said. “Then this Khashoggi thing comes along, and it looks like there isn’t any real reform. You criticize the state, and they kill you, so forth.”
“Where was the Benghazi outrage? Except for the conservatives?” Hannity asked.
“Exactly. I asked that the other day. Where’s all the concern for four dead Americans in Benghazi?” Limbaugh responded.
