There was a “STILL ANGRY” caption under a Navy vet on The Sean Hannity Show last night, but it turned out the veteran, who was fighting for the rights of our military, wasn’t angry at all. The only one angry was Hannity.
The interview was a perfect example of a TV host disregarding workers and trying to stir the political pot.
It all happened when Wayne Tunick, a Navy vet from Virginia, attended a town hall meeting last week held by his congressman, Democrat Jim Moran. Tunick was upset Congress was potentially going to shut down the government over the budget because that would mean thousands of military personnel wouldn’t get paid.
