The telephone operator who answered Sean Hannity's questions on-air "shouldn't get fired," the radio talk show host said Friday.

"She shouldn't get fired because I made a phone call, and it was public. She did nothing wrong. Nothing," Hannity said Friday morning on "Fox & Friends."

"She was kind. She was nice. She was terrific. She was thoughtful. She was honest. Just really, really, really wonderful," he said about the operator, Earline Davis.

Hannity called the Obamacare toll-free number Tuesday, after President Barack Obama publicized it as a way for people to get information if they had trouble enrolling in Obamacare on the healthcare.gov website.

During the call, Davis was aware the conversation was being broadcast, and advised Hannity not to use the website for 42 hours. When asked if she had spoken to anyone who liked the healthcare plan, she said, "Not really."

Davis was reportedly fired on Thursday for speaking to the conservative radio host.

Hannity explained that he made the call because he thought "it was going to be helpful" to his radio listeners. He has offered to pay her $26,000 to cover lost wages.

"We have 15 million people that listen to the show. And, I figured, if I made the call, that would prevent that fewer numbers of people from actually calling, because they would get the benefit of hearing it. So, I thought it was going to be helpful," he said.

Hannity said Davis ended up being treated "horribly" for speaking honestly. "She couldn't even clean out her own desk. And, literally [they] had her escorted out of the building, as if she's a criminal," he added.

Since Davis' dismissal, Hannity said, people have been contacting him to offer her a job, money, and words of encouragement.
