“You know what? That’s a great idea…”
Fox News host Sean Hannity dared NFL agitators Thursday to come on his show and explain to America why they are using the national anthem as a time of protest.
The idea was discussed by Hannity and radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh during Limbaugh’s appearance on Hannity.
“The left has hijacked this game,” Limbaugh said, adding that players are “caught up into something that I don’t even think they understand.”
“You know their backtracking now, ‘Well, this is not about protesting the flag. This is not about —’ of course it is. That’s how it all got started,” he said.
He then had a question for Hannity.
“If they really wanted to make — do you think they could — if one of these players or group of them called you and said we want a half hour on your show, would you give it to them?” Limbaugh said.
“Hundred percent,” Hannity replied.
“I’ll give them hours on my show,” he later said.
“Let’s see if they take you up on it,” Limbaugh said. “You know what you’re gonna find? … a lot of these players really believe ‘hands up, don’t shoot.’ They really do.”
“Never happened!” Hannity replied.
“It didn’t happen but the media says it did,” Limbaugh said.
Hannity later went into more detail about the concept.
“You know what? That’s a great idea from Rush, and as I said to him, I’ll be more than happy; I’ll invite NFL players, coaches, owners, those who protest the national anthem — you’re invited on the show. We’ll give you an hour, we’ll give you two hours, three hours, whatever it takes,” Hannity said.
“And you know what? We’ll do a town hall. You wanna fill up a football stadium? We’ll even do that for you. All of you can come, all you have to do is show up,” he added.
Hannity also dared players to talk about something constructive.
“By the way, if you’re really interested in solving problems, and finding solutions for this country, then I think it’s time that we got a talk about solutions,” he said.
