Hannity fires Kathy Barnette for ‘highly controversial rhetoric’, says she’s ‘ineligible’

Fox News host Sean Hannity ripped Kathy Barnette for ‘very controversial rhetoric” surrounding gays, lesbians and Muslims Thursday night on “Hannity.”

SEAN HANNITY: Now, last week, out of nowhere, she surged to second place in the polls for the crowded Pennsylvania Republican Senate primary. Currently, the candidate I endorsed and President Trump endorsed, Dr. Mehmet Oz, retains the top spot.

But because she was voting so low, until about last week, unfortunately, Kathy Barnette didn’t go through any sort of vigorous and rigorous vetting. This is now proving to be a huge problem in this race.

It is a very important state. There are so many questions she has never answered in many tweets that probably make her ineligible in Pennsylvania.

Most of these problematic comments and tweets are fairly recent, meaning it wasn’t done when she was in her 20s or 30s. These are controversial comments, extremely controversial, repeated over and over again. So I must conclude, these are his deep convictions.

On Twitter, she asked her followers to pray for her because, in quotes, she was about to board the plane to California, and in quotes, there was a gay woman on the flight. In 2015, she tweeted, quote, Obama did what he does best, shoving his gay agenda down everyone’s throats and paraded a slew of ‘gay people in front of the pope’, whatever that means . She also strongly insinuated “Obama was a horrible gay Muslim. Obama is horrible in every way. He loves all things gay and supports all things Muslim.” Also on Twitter, Barnette apparently called for a ban on Islam in the United States. This, in other words, would eliminate the First Amendment from our US Constitution.

Either way, Kathy Barnette is running for the US Senate, in what must be described as a purple state, not an easy win for a Republican. In a general election, the media mob, the Democratic Party, they’ll tear it up on all these questions, all these comments, all these tweets. If she’s unable to fix those issues right before the primary, that’s my prediction and I don’t think it’s hard to do. It will be completely destroyed in a general election as it was in 2020.
