After Politico reported on Monday night about a draft opinion suggesting the Supreme Court is moving towards overturning Roe v. WadeTwo Fox News contributors called the leak of the draft to the press – which is truly unprecedented – a “revolt” against the courts.
Sean Hannity spent most of his prime hours responding to the report, first turning to fellow Fox and attorney Shannon Bream, then moderating a three-person team that included Fox collaborators Ari Fleischer and Mike Huckabee.
“Make no mistake, Sean. This is a revolt against the Supreme Court,” said Fleischer, who served as the White House press secretary for the George W. Bush administration.
“I’ve seen people on the left celebrate this jumper, calling him brave, trying to throw a Hail to stop the verdict from coming,” continued Fleischer. “The Supreme Court seems to be the last organ of internal integrity. This is a revolt against the courts and it is necessary to find out who did it and any legal action that can be taken against them needs to be taken. “
Hannity responded by calling Fleischer’s comments “strong”, then turned to Huckabee for input.
“I’m glad Ari used the term ‘revolt.’ That’s exactly what it’s doing,” the former Arkansas governor said. Huckabee then compares it directly to the January 6 uprising, which resulted in several deaths.
“This is an uprising not by some people from some state who have gone hot-tempered and come to DC and overheated in a protest,” Huckabee said, downplaying the Capitol riots. “This was an uprising by someone who was paid by taxpayers and who was obligated to keep his mouth shut in his particular job and job, and he didn’t do it. So that’s a serious form, if you will, of insurgency, and I hope that people will use that term, because if what happened on January 6th was an uprising. uprising, then this is a complete uprising. “
Hannity neither agrees nor disagrees but calls the words “power”. And Fleischer and Huckabee’s shared message was echoed later that night on Fox, when GOP attorney Harmeet Dhillon called the Politico report a “rebel-level event.”
