Donald Trump has been widely condemned for his attacks on the Khan family, whose son Capt. Humayun Khan was killed in Iraq. But he’s still getting support from one source.
FOX News commentator Sean Hannity has taken it upon himself to investigate the Khan family. According to Hannity, Khizr Khan, Capt. Khan’s father, is suspicious.
“He looks ‘terroristy,’” said Hannity on his radio show. “He is a Muslim, he speaks fluent English and he can travel in out of the country, since he has a passport. He would make the perfect terrorist.”
Hannity took to Twitter to announce his plans to look into Khizr Khan’s background, reported Salon.
“In a special #Hannity investigation, we look into the background of Khizr Khan,” said Hannity.
In a piece on his FOX News show, he implied Khizr Khan supported Sharia law.
“Now all Americans, we all honor his service, his sacrifice, and his courage — and on that, everybody agrees. But Khizr Khan, since his DNC speech, has made controversial comments. During one recent interview, he said there’s no such thing as Sharia law. Really?” said Hannity.
Hannity doesn’t have a great reputation outside of FOX. Recently Wall Street Journal editor Bret Stephens called him “FOX News’ dumbest anchor.”
