Sean Hannity is giving Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore (R) “24 hours” to either come up with a “satisfactory explanation” for the allegations that he engaged in sexual misconduct with teenagers or “get out of this race” after multiple companies pulled their ads from his show over his initial attacks on Moore’s victims.
“Here’s where I am tonight. Between this interview that I did and the inconsistent answers; between him saying ‘I never knew this girl’ and then that yearbook comes out – for me, the judge has 24 hours,” Hannity said Tuesday night.
“You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed,” Hannity continued. “You must remove any doubt. If he can’t do this, Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.”
Hannity’s comments come after nearly a dozen advertisers pulling their ads from his show in the wake of his defiant coverage of Moore.
Five women have come forward in the last week to accuse Moore of sexual misconduct, including one woman who alleged Moore sexually assaulted her when she was 16 and he was in his 30s.
Moore has denied all of the allegations, calling them “completely false.”
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called for Moore to drop out of the race on Monday.
