Fox News host Sean Hannity called Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell "weak" and "spineless" hours after vowing to stop "all petty political disagreements" in light of new threats from North Korea.
". @SenateMajLdr No Senator, YOU are a WEAK, SPINELESS leader who does not keep his word and you need to Retire!" Hannity wrote on Twitter in a post dated 5:30 a.m. Wednesday morning. He appears to have sent but deleted the same tweet at around 11 p.m. Tuesday, about eight hours from his vow to not start disagreements.
The tweet also linked to an ABC News story. It is unclear as to what the story was as the link was broken. A report about McConnell venting about President Donald Trump’s “excessive expectations” for legislative priorities was featured on the homepage, however.
But nearly 14 hours before, Hannity bashed McConnell, the Fox News host vowed to stop "petty political disagreements."
"In light of dangerous NKorea threat, I’m stopping all petty political disagreements for at least next 12 hours. Let’s see what others do." Hannity tweeted at 3:11 p.m. on Tuesday.
His comment came after it was revealed that North Korea produced a miniature nuclear bomb small enough to fit on an intercontinental ballistic missile. Trump has since responded saying North Korea would be met with "fire and fury like the world has never seen" if the threats continued.
