Heard It From a Friend Who Heard It From a Friend Who…

I knew this story was a dumpster fire as soon as it hit Twitter. Of course, the liberal (especially New York) press was all over it. Supposedly, Sean Hannity pulled out a scary gun and aimed it at Juan Williams on the Fox News set after a particularly energetic on-air discussion.

It’s total bullcrap.

The New York Daily News reported it as fact, citing “Sources” who told CNN.

Sources told the network that the incident occurred after a segment where he and Williams were arguing.

I won’t even link to the original CNN story, which had nothing to do with guns. It was a 17-paragraph screed on the word “jackass” published to smear Sean Hannity, with three paragraphs focusing on the “gun” incident. Who did CNN cite? Their words: “according to three sources with knowledge of the incident.”

That means heresay. They weren’t direct witnesses. They weren’t there. They heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another you been messin’ around (with guns).

Juan Williams, a gentleman, handled this perfectly.


That should be the end of it. Williams was there.

Responsible gun owners show their pistols to each other every day, everywhere. I had a doctor show me his .30 semiautomatic carry gun in his office. He did what Hannity did: unloaded it, cleared it, and handed it to me to admire. I have had police officers who pulled me over for a minor traffic infraction end up discussing Glock 23s with me.

For liberal media who live in their bubble: this is common in America. And no, we don’t point our guns at each other.

But you know, I heard it from a friend who, heard it from a friend who, heard it from another that liberals loved it when Snoop Dog pointed a gun at a clown Trump.
