“She wants a political opponent locked up in prison,” Hannity said in apparent disbelief. “That happens in Banana Republics, it’s beyond despicable behavior. They would turn the USA into a country we no longer recognize.”

Hannity went on to rail against the Democrats, saying they were ignoring key issues as part of a vendetta against Trump. “They focus on one thing and one thing only. That’s their rage. Their obsession. Donald Trump the president lives in their heads 24/7.”

Hannity’s outrage over the criminalization of politics strains credulity, to say the least. The president’s 2016 campaign notoriously made “lock her up” — a direct threat to imprison Hillary Clinton — one of its signature rallying cries.
