Sean Hannity rages against ‘weak Republicans without a backbone’ for not standing against Trump impeachment as he blasts trial as ‘psychotic rage’ of Democrats
- Hannity implored Republicans to ‘focus on your job,’ not impeachment
- The Fox News host claimed the results of the impeachment trial are predestined
- He also said that Kamala Harris and Maxine Waters should be censured
- Hannity is likely right about the impeachment trial after Republican senators largely supported a resolution declaring the trial unconstitutional
Sean Hannity spent part of his show on Wednesday attacking both Democrats and ‘weak’ Republicans over the looming impeachment of Donald Trump.
The Fox News host blasted Senators for wasting the public’s time in pursuing the trial of the former president, and insisted that ‘radical Democrats are falsely accusing Trump of inciting an insurrection.’
Hannity called out members of the GOP who have not pushed to block the upcoming trial.
He said: ‘Republicans, will you for once, get a backbone? Will you for once not buckle, not capitulate, not give in? Will you say he’s not in office – enough? Stop wasting our time and our money?’
On Tuesday, 45 GOP senators voted for a resolution stating that Trump’s impeachment was unconstitutional because he is now a private citizen.
But five Republican senators didn’t vote in favor of the motion: Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, Mitt Romney, Ben Sasse, and Pat Toomey.
With 67 votes needed to convict Trump, at least 12 who voted for the resolution would need to flip, likely dooming any chance of a conviction.

Sean Hannity blasted some Republicans as being ‘weak’ and without a backbone
Hannity referred to the upcoming proceedings as a ‘sham, unconstitutional impeachment trial.’
‘We already know the outcome,’ Hannity said. ‘President Trump will be acquitted so they will now officially be wasting your money and your time.’
‘Enough, we get it,’ Hannity said of Democrats. ‘You hate President Trump. Donald Trump has this unique ability to live in these people’s minds.’
Trump infamously posted his ‘love’ for the Capitol Hill rioters on social media before being banned from multiple platforms, espousing false claims of election fraud when the rioters came to the Capitol on January 6.
After predicting Democrat defeat in the impeachment trial, Hannity turned on Republicans, imploring them to ‘get a backbone.’
Hannity then suggests Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer, Maxine Waters should be censured themselves.
‘Stop legitimizing – you Republicans, you weak ones – this psychotic rage,’ Hannity exclaimed about the impeachment trial. ‘Focus on your job.’

It’s likely, therefore, that Donald Trump will escape an impeachment conviction once again
He then claimed Democrats don’t have compassion, awareness, or empathy in regards to those struggling during the coronavirus pandemic, evidenced by their desire to have an impeachment trial for Trump.
Hannity has a famously close relationship with Trump, with the two talking on the phone on an almost weekly basis during Trump’s presidency.
