Hannity Calls ‘Total Bullsh*t’ After Time Refutes Trump’s ‘Person of the Year’ Claim

Fox News host Sean Hannity is a firm supporter of President Trump, and he calls the bulls*t as he sees it!

A time such as this has come after Time Magazine claims they never commented to Trump about the possibility of Trump being the “Person of the Year.”

Trump tweeted out yesterday that Time contacted him to inform him that they were considering him to be featured as their “Person of the Year,” and he claims that he respectfully declined.

Trump said, “Time Magazine called to say that I was PROBABLY going to be named “Man (Person) of the Year,” like last year, but I would have to agree to an interview and a major photo shoot. I said probably is no good and took a pass. Thanks anyway!”

Time has fired back, claiming that they never said that. They tweeted, “The President is incorrect about how we choose Person of the Year. TIME does not comment on our choice until publication, which is December 6.”

Hannity isn’t into playing games though and called the magazine out. He said, “I call total Bullshit on Time. Answer the question; did you or did you not call the WH and say @realDonaldTrump @POTUS was being considered for person of the year and ask for an interview?”

The Hill reports: 

Hannity, a top ally of Trump, weighed in on the pushback from Time after the president tweeted to say that he turned down the magazine’s offer after they said he would “probably” be named “Person of the Year,” saying that “probably” was not good enough.

Trump was previously named “Person of the Year” in 2016. At the time, he called the magazine’s distinction a “great honor.”

“It’s a great honor. It means a lot,” Trump said at the time. “To be on the cover of Time magazine as the person of the year is a tremendous honor.”

In 2016’s edition, Time managing editor Nancy Gibbs said that, regardless of how readers feel about Trump, most Americans had an opinion on the then-president-elect.

Gibbs said, “For those who believe this is all for the better, Trump’s victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class.”
