Fox News hosts fail miserably defending Sean Hannity, MSNBC hosts respond Video

This week on the dysfunctional reality show known as the White House: It turns out that Michael Cohen, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer, was forced to name his secret third client on Monday.

In a pair of fiery statements from the courthouse steps Monday, porn star Stormy Daniels and her attorney, Michael Avenatti, insisted that they will never give up their legal push alleging that President Donald Trump's "fixer" Michael Cohen defamed the adult film star, who alleges a sexual encounter with Trump. Hannity didn't have to say he was a client of Cohen's because it's possible the dude is just conflating who he considered a client and who he didn't (three clients are better than two, I suppose).

Hannity drew immediate fire for failing to disclose his relationship with Cohen while bashing the Federal Bureau of Investigation raid on his radio and TV shows.

At roughly the same time, Hannity, on his radio show, said it was odd to see his name appearing on Fox News and wondered aloud if he should release a statement.

Hannity also said that he "might have handed him 10 bucks".

Hannity made his case in response to Alan Dershowitz, who interrupted a panel discussed devoted to trashing James Comey to confront Hannity about the Cohen controversy.

It was not until the last segment of his show that Hannity really dove into the "wild speculation from the mainstream media" about his connection to Cohen.

British opposition lawmakers have called on May to give Parliament a vote before any military action. Other members of May's Conservative party have urged restraint in a highly fraught situation.

Numerous personalities latching on to this most recent claim also went to the mat for other outlandish ideas, including the inexplicably prominent PizzaGate yarn that held Trump's 2016 rival Hillary Clinton was involved in a pedophile ring run out of the basement a Washington, D.C. pizzeria (the restaurant has no basement).

In the course of arguments in court yesterday, it was revealed that one of Cohen's clients is Sean Hannity.

This isn't the first time Carrey has illustrated the right-wing host. And to be absolutely clear, they never involved any matter, any - sorry to disappoint so many - matter between me, a third party, a third group, at all. Even on his own show, Hannity was criticized for not doing so.

Hannity responded to the ensuing media reportage, telling his audience that Cohen never represented him in any legal matter and that he never "retained [Cohen's] services".

Cohen has worked for Trump and been a close friend for years. During the hearing, a judge ordered Cohen to reveal any other individuals he had as clients in 2018, with Sean Hannity being at the top of the list.

Already unable to comprehend Cohen's confession, Colbert raised another question that could potentially lead to a new revelation. Cohen also facilitated a $1.6 million payment to a former Playboy model who said Broidy got her pregnant, The Wall Street Journal reported last week. He never once mentioned that he even knew Cohen, much less that Cohen would describe him as a client in a legal proceeding.
