Sean Hannity: Bill Press Just ‘Wants Attention’


By Merrill Knox Comment

Last night on Fox News, Sean Hannity’s “Great American Panel” took on Current TV’s Bill Press for remarks he made yesterday calling the National Anthem “an abomination” and saying he is “embarrassed every time I hear it.”

The entire panel, including Democratic pollster Doug Schoen, disagreed with Press’ statement, with Hannity concluding that Press just “wants attention.”

“I’ll buy him a plane ticket anywhere else he’d like go to in this world,” panelist Leann Tweeden said.

“I’ll take it a step further. We’ll get him a private jet,” Hannity responded. “I’ll pay for it. But he’s got to promise not to come back.”

Press’ remarks were also the topic of a segment with FNC contributor Michelle Malkin on “Fox & Friends” this morning. “We are so lucky to live in this amazing country and let’s say and sing these words with dignity,” Gretchen Carlson said.
