Fox News host Sean Hannity is an insufferable hack and failure of a journalist. He fell for the internet news hoax that America is accepting 250,000 Syrian refugees. What’s worse, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appeared on Hannity’s show and both continued to spread the lie to the Fox News audience. The conservative news cycle is pathetic.
