Wealthy Hannity Slams Media For Luxe Lifestyles (Video)

Fox News host Sean Hannity slammed members of the media for their expensive lifestyles, but did not mention his own, on Sept. 26 (video below).

Hannity made the comments after praising Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, whom Hannity openly supports, for his debate performance, according to

Hannity was upset that most journalists said Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton won the debate when there were online open polls (reportedly manipulated by Trump voters) that showed Trump winning.

Hannity slammed those reporters by invoking some class warfare: "Now, my overpaid friends in the media, well, they have their chauffeured limousines, they like their fine steakhouses and expensive wine lifestyles."

After Hannity attacked the journalists, many responded on Twitter about Hannity's expensive lifestyle:

"Sean Hannity travels on a GD private jet."

"He owns a f-------- private jet. He's The Wolf of Bullshit Street."

"Hannity is literally describing himself here."

"Hannity awakens in his mud hut, built with his own hands, before walking to Fox News (uphill both ways). He eats air & dresses in moonbeams."

"Finally, Hannity has clarified to me why I had to leave the media: I get carsick in big cars, I don't eat beef and I don't drink."

"Sean Hannity has a net worth of $80 million."

"Private jets cost more than limos right? Or did they get cheaper?"

Hannity has repeatedly attacked those who have criticized the rich for years.

Media Matters noted in July 2010 that Hannity said:

For the next 106 days we can expect a ton of class-warfare rhetoric, demagoguery as you just pointed out, and demonization, etc., character assassination, maybe some supportive groups playing the race card because they can't run on their record? That's what's the next 106 days are going to be like? This is going to be all we see?

In 2011, Hannity complained about class warfare again, reported Media Matters: "And, as usual, the president could not help but resort to using the same kind of class warfare and false choices that we've gotten used to over the past two and a half years."
