Sean Hannity Shows Why Hillary Clinton Is Unfit Be President, Yet Might Be Anyway

To be sure, it was not what Hannity wanted to hear or Ingraham wanted to say, but it was precisely what needed to be said and needs to be heard.

The decisive issue in the upcoming presidential election is who would be a better President, presumptive Democrat nominee Hillary Clinton and presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Clinton's campaign message is that Trump isn't fit to be President and she has ample political experience to steer the ship of state.

Trump's campaign message is that Clinton is a crooked liar unfit to be President and he as a successful businessman is a much better choice than a dishonest career politician like Clinton.

Obviously the media should be scrutinizing both candidates closely.

Last night Sean Hannity defied Clinton and devoted his hour long television show to the upcoming book on Clinton by former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne titled Crisis of Conscience.

Byrne was a Secret Service agent when Clinton was First Lady and it was not until 2004 that such agents were required to sign non-disclosure agreements as a condition of employment, so Byrne's conscience is his guide as to what to what to write and/or say and Clinton can sue him for defamation if he lies about her.

Hannity told vkiewers not to expect the ABC, CBS and NBC to be presenting interviews of Byrne, even though what Byrne is saying should be known to voters.

The Drudge Report previously reported that the Clinton campaign "has worked tirelessly to persuade the major networks to blacklist former Secret Service officer Gary Byrne" (

On "Hannity" Byrne declared: "I hope one day that it (my book) does many a difference. I mean if Mrs. Clinton ends up being President of the United States, then sheís our President, sheís the Commander in Chief. It is what it is. But if she did become the President without me speaking the truth, Iím not sure I could deal with that. People need to know this is serious. Her behavior is appalling. It is just two different people."

Hannity got Byrne to elaborate, as follows:

"Thereís many examples that I site in my book where she blows up at people. Like Iíve said, she has blown up at me before, and agents, and her staff. At one time, I saw her staff so afraid to tell her about a mistake that was made. They werenít upset about the waste of the mistake, ordering the wrong invitations, they were terrified that someone was going to have to tell Hillary Clinton that there was a mistake made."

Clinton has charged that Trump lacks presidential temperament.

Hannity and Byrne discussed Clinton's temperament:

BYRNE: "I feel so strongly that people need to know the real Hillary Clinton and how dangerous she is in her behavior. She is not a leader. She is not a leader."

HANNITY: "She does not have the temperament?"

BYRNE: "She doesnít have the temperament. She didnít have the temperament to handle the social office when she was First Lady, she does not have the temperament."

HANNITY: "Sheís dishonest."

BYRNE: "Sheís dishonest, she habitually lies, anybody that can separate themselves from their politics and review her behavior over the past 15 yearsÖ"

HANNITY: "Youíre going to be accused of being political."

BYRNE: "Absolutely Iím sure I will be, I have already and itís not."

HANNITY: "And whatís your answer?"

BYRNE: "Itís got nothing to do as politics."

Hannity elicited Byrne's view on Clinton's interactions with Vince Foster.

BYRNE: "When I met Vince Foster in the White House and I saw him walk around, I never saw anyone who didnít want to be there, more than he didnít want to be there. He looked so uncomfortable. Here were many instances or stories where the staff would hear [Clinton] berating Vince and she blamed him publicly for some of the things that didnít get done. As a lot of people know, in his suicide note, he basically said that that Washington D.C. was this terrible vindictive place and that was one of the reasons he took his own life."

Then there were President Clinton's White House affairs and his wife's reactions to them.

HANNITY: "How many women do you know, for sure, that he had affairs with in the Oval Office?"

BYRNE: "In the White House complex? Iíd say easily three, maybe four, that I know of."

HANNITY: "And you could see Monica Lewinsky from a mile away?"

BYRNE: "Sure. Sure."

HANNITY: "You knew she wanted to be near him."

BYRNE: "She was certainly manipulated some of the staff, other officers, myself to find out where he wasó"

HANNITY: "She wasnít manipulating if you saw through it."

BYRNE: "Yeah, I agree. But I saw through it right away, but she was trying to place herself in his path, as he would move throughout the complex."

"Complex" is one word for the Clinton marriage. Byrne discussed the vase that Hillary threw at Bill while they were in the White House, giving him a black eye. Voters probably think he deserved worse, but it is fair to ask if the Clintons are the couple the American people should pick to represent them.

After interviewing Byrne, Hannity discussed the interview with Fox contributor Laura Ingraham. Ingraham opined that the Clinton scandals are already "backed in the cake" and the liberal media will either ignore or vilify Byrne, so that Byrne's revelations may not have a significant impact on the presidential race.

To be sure, it was not what Hannity wanted to hear or Ingraham wanted to say, but it was precisely what needed to be said and needs to be heard.

Ignorant voters make bad choices, and the Clinton campaign and the liberal media are determined to keep voters from learning the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

It's been more than fifteen years since the Clintons left the White House to which they are trying to return and there are millions of voters and potential voters who are not familiar with what interviewer Hannity was talking about with witness to history Byrne.

Ad George Washington said, "Truth will ultimately prevail where there is pains to bring it to light."

It is up to the Trump campaign to educate voters and potential voters and to conservative media, especially including stars like Hannity and Ingraham, to bring the truth to light.

If they don't, the Clintons will return to power and things will go from bad to worse.
