Sean Hannity Admits He Botched Cory Booker Story, Then Insults Him Anyway

Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) for his supposed silence on allegations of sexual assault against Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax (D).

Just one problem: Booker hadn’t been silent.

Hours before Hannity’s show aired, Booker addressed the allegations on CNN:

Fairfax is next in line for governor of Virginia at a time when the current governor, Ralph Northam, is facing growing calls to resign over a racist image in his medical school yearbook. However, the allegations against Fairfax have led to calls for his resignation as well.

He has denied the allegations.

Attorney General Mark Herring, who is third in line for the governor’s job, is also being urged to resign after he admitted to wearing blackface makeup at a 1980s college party.

Hannity issued an “update” at the end of his show, but delivered it while referring to Booker by the mocking nickname of “Spartacus.”
