Bernie Goldberg Real Talk: Hannity’s Pro-Trump ‘Ranting’ Really ‘Doesn’t Get a Lot Accomplished’
Over the past week or so, with the White House rocked by bombshell report after bombshell report, Fox News host Sean Hannity has ramped up his pro-Trump coverage. Last night, he called on supporters of the president to “fight back” against anti-Trump forces, namely the mainstream media and Democrats.
During an appearance on America’s Newsroom, Fox News contributor Bernie Goldberg explained that while he thinks Hannity is right on many things, overall, it is essentially sound and fury, signifying nothing.
Noting that Hannity is correct that media would like nothing better than to bring President Trump down, there’s “crazies on the left” who think Trump’s as bad as Hitler, and Democrats are obstructionists, he wondered aloud what Hannity could actually do.
“What are you going to do about it?” Goldberg asked. “What do Trump’s most loyal allies want to do about it? We’re not going to repeal the First Amendment because Donald Trump thinks The New York Times and others engage in fake news.”
He continued, “My point is that ranting goes only so far. And on cable TV it serves a purpose. It riles the base. But it doesn’t get a lot accomplished.”
Goldberg further added that Trump “brings a lot of this heat on himself” as he’s not exactly “Mother Theresa.”
