Fox News host and unapologetic Trump supporter Sean Hannity blasted the Republican Party on Monday night during an interview with “Breitbart News Tonight” special edition host Stephen Bannon, calling the GOP a “dead party” and saying Republicans never had any intention of repealing and replacing ObamaCare.
“Here’s my view on the Republican Party,” Hannity said to the former White House chief strategist.
“It is a dead party. They are morally corrupt, they are weak. … They are ineffective, they’re vision-less, and they have no identity,” he said.
Hannity said he thinks the Republican Party left him, not the other way around.
“And I feel it is heartbreaking to me, because so many people trusted them in 2010, 2014 – ‘Give us the House, give us the Senate,’ ” Hannity said.
“Then they get the White House and then they turn on a man that’s advocating the same principles that they have been quoting for years on the campaign trail,” he said.
He called it “total and complete bullshit.”
The Hill added:
The Fox News host interviewed Trump several times throughout the 2016 campaign and after he entered office, while Trump praised Hannity’s ratings in a late-night tweet last month.
Republicans, earlier this year, failed multiple times to repeal and replace ObamaCare. Last week, Senate Republicans passed their bill to overhaul the tax code, which included a repeal of ObamaCare’s individual mandate, which required that most people have health insurance or face a tax penalty.
The Senate bill must still be reconciled with House legislation that does not include the mandate’s repeal, but that is unlikely to be an issue given support in the GOP conference for repealing the mandate.
