Sean Hannity, the anchor of Fox News, expressed strong criticism towards House Republicans who were allegedly displeased with his emails that vigorously advocated for the speakership campaign of Representative Jim Jordan, a Republican from Ohio, on Monday.
Following a story by Axios journalist Juliegrace Brufke, it was seen that moderate House Republicans were experiencing a rising level of annoyance due to emails sent by producers affiliated with Hannity. These emails were aimed at pressuring the aforementioned Republicans to vote in favor of Jordan, who has received an endorsement from Hannity. Consequently, Hannity, the anchor of Fox News, posed a question in response to this situation.
Why is it a shock to certain lawmakers and members of the media mob – all of you out there – that yours truly, a member of the press, is daring to ask elected representatives, the so-called public servants in this country, if and when they plan to wrap up this speaker battle and reopen the People’s House amid growing chaos both at home and abroad?
I have a lot more to say on this later, but I do have to chuckle that a few of my questions, simple questions that I asked to some Republicans over the weekend about the importance of getting a speaker as soon as possible, showed we have a few sensitive little snowflakes in Congress.
Here’s the truth, they are the majority, they need to act like it. No deals with the Democrats and that would mean, yeah, no temporary solutions either. Elect a speaker, get the House open, and start doing your job. The good news is the anonymous votes end tomorrow and we will know and we will see which Republicans understand what is the importance of this moment in history, not only for the Republican Party, for them to unite, them to lead by reopening the People’s House while we have war in the Middle East, and war in Europe, and open borders, and serious budget deadlines.
Hannity concluded, “I offer no apologies for doing my job and seeking answers from those elected public servants. Again, keyword, servants.”
The producer of Hannity wrote, “Sources tell Hannity that Rep xxxx is not supporting Rep Jim Jordan for Speaker,” in an email distributed to a number of House Republicans. Could you please check to see whether this is correct?
The email kept going:
And, if true, Hannity would like to know why during a war breaking out between Israel and Hamas, with the war in Ukraine, with the wide open borders, with a budget that’s unfinished why would Rep xxxx be against Rep Jim Jordan for speaker? Please let us know when Rep xxxx plans on opening The People’s House so work can be done. Lastly, are there any conditions Rep xxxx will choose to work with Democrats on the process of electing a new speaker? The deadline for comment is 11 AM ET tomorrow 10/16. Thank you.
Hannity was among the initial public personalities to express support for Jordan after to the removal of Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) from the position of speaker of the House.
