Sean Hannity: Liberal Media Has 'Double Standard' on Trump Coverage

(Fox News/"Fox & Friends")

Fox News' Sean Hannity complained Tuesday that the liberal media — in particular, CNN — has been biased when it comes to covering Donald Trump and engages in a "double standard" when it comes to covering the GOP nominee and his rival, Hillary Clinton.

"The media is so in the tank, so on board for Hillary, they're so abusively biased," the Fox News star, who will host a town hall event in Milwaukee Tuesday night for Trump, told the "Fox & Friends" program.

Hannity was particularly angry with a segment on CNN's "Reliable Sources" Sunday show, calling host Brian Stelter a "little pipsqueak" for allowing "this arrogant professor from the Kennedy School of Journalism, to talk about Donald Trump being a demagogue and demagogues like Trump become dictators."

Such coverage, he said, is the kind CNN offers "as they literally kiss Hillary Clinton's [expletive] and Obama's [expletive] every day," using language in the telephone interview that met with alarm from the hosts.

"Wait a minute," "Fox & Friends" Ainsley Earhardt said. "I don't know if we're allowed to say that. It's too early."

"By the way, I say that on my show every night," Hannity replied. "Sorry guys."

Hannity on Tuesday also discussed growing concerns over Clinton's health, after Trump said he thinks she "lacks the mental and physical stamina to take on ISIS" and other adversaries.

" I don't know if that's a risk," said Hannity. "I mean, you can compare the vitality between the two. And there's no comparison. What her actual health is I don't know. But I do think the public has a right to know and I'm all in favor of her releasing her medical records."

In Tuesday night's town hall, Trump will likely follow up on Monday's speech about his plans to combat Islamic terrorism, said Hannity.

"I thought yesterday's speech by Trump was the best speech he gave," said Hannity. "I think it creates a great paradigm for him to follow the next 84 days of this campaign . . . If he focuses only on Hillary and Obama, the way he did yesterday, and he lays out their failures like he did yesterday and then he offers an alternative way to deal with not only radical Islam and ISIS, but the economy, energy, immigration, all the other important topics I think that's the formula, that's the secret sauce that would get him elected."

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, also speaking on the "Fox &Friends" program, said he'll be at the town hall Tuesday night, and also believes Trump needs to make it clear the race is between himself and Clinton.

"She's fundamentally unfit to be the president," said Walker. "She lied about the emails, put our national security at risk. She lied to the family of those fallen in Benghazi and now we have more evidence there's a question as to where the State Department ended and where the Clinton Foundation started."

The state of the race in Wisconsin is a "roller coaster," said Walker and he thinks that will continue unless Trump keeps the focus on her.
