Democrats’ media allies like to claim that Sean Hannity is a shadow chief of staff for Donald Trump.

The longtime Fox News host took on one of the biggest issues of the 2024 election.

And Sean Hannity gave Donald Trump one piece of advice that no one saw coming.

Hannity tells Republicans to go soft on abortion

Ruling class RINOs – particularly the hack consultants and political operatives employed by the establishment – led Republicans to defeat after defeat in the 2022 Midterms by telling candidates to stick their heads in the sand and ignore the Supreme Court’s decision overturning Roe v. Wade

To his credit, Fox News’ Sean Hannity correctly pointed out that Democrats will employ a strategy of lying about Republicans’ position on the issue, claiming they want to “kill” women and smear them as medieval barbarians looking to take away women’s healthcare.

He also added that Republicans need to answer those attacks head-on, rather than running from them.

“We know what the playbook is,” Hannity said during a recent broadcast of his Fox News show. “They will demagogue on abortion. Republicans, they better have a good answer. And they also need to understand where the country is.”

But while Hannity described himself as “pretty pro-life,” the Fox News talking head believes Republicans need to follow former President Donald Trump’s lead by voicing support for only restricting abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy, a position that would allow for around 90% of abortions to continue.

“That’s where the country is,” Hannity claimed. “And if Republican politicians don’t understand that, then they’re gonna get their asses kicked and they’re gonna lose.”

Hannity’s guest, Trafalgar Group pollster Robert Cahaly, said the language Republicans use is more important, and that candidates need to go on offense to convince the American people that their proposals are “reasonable limitations,” while pointing out Democrats’ extremist position of supporting unregulated, taxpayer-funded abortion on-demand up until – and often after – the moment of birth.

“And it’s also the way you talk about it,” Cahaly declared. “When the word ‘ban’ is being thrown around, Republicans are losing. When you start talking about ‘simple limitations,’ ‘reasonable limitations,’ and talking about the extreme being, ‘third-trimester abortion’ and ‘partial birth,’ Republicans are winning.”

Hannity’s gone wobbly before

Hannity has a habit of panicking after Democrats win an election, and urging conservatives  to throw out their deeply held beliefs and surrender to the Left.

In the 2012 election, former President Barack Obama soundly defeated establishment RINO Mitt Romney.

Instead of realizing that Romney’s decision to make his campaign about supporting ruling class elite ideas like amnesty, globalist free trade deals, and support for endless wars in the Middle East depressed turnout amongst working class conservatives, Hannity focused on the fact that Obama won 71% of the Hispanic vote.

In response, Hannity told listeners to his radio show that he “evolved,” and now supported amnesty for illegal aliens.

“It’s simple to me to fix it,” Hannity began. “I think you control the border first. You create a pathway for those people that are here — you don’t say you’ve got to go home. And that is a position that I’ve evolved on. Because, you know what, it’s got to be resolved. The majority of people here, if some people have criminal records you can send them home, but if people are here, law-abiding, participating for years, their kids are born here, you know, first secure the border, pathway to citizenship, done.”

Hannity bought into Democrats and their media allies’ lies that Republicans couldn’t win Hispanic voters without going all-in on amnesty.

Polls showing Donald Trump leading Joe Biden with Hispanic voters proved Hannity wrong.

Sean Hannity looks like he is offering similarly bad advice on abortion.

Should Republicans abandon the pro-life cause?
