The blatant hypocrisy of defenders of the GOP never fails to disappoint. Men like Sean Hannity use their public platforms to preach about morality and godliness, yet when one of their own (read: White Christian Males) stands accused of molesting multiple children, they fall all over themselves rushing to his defense.

Such was the case with Sean Hannity on Thursday, who spent a good portion of his radio show defending accused child molester and GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore. Multiple women have come forward over the past week accusing Moore of initiating sexual acts with them when they were as young as 14 years of age.

During Thursday's show, Hannity claimed he doubted the validity of the allegations against Mr. Moore, cited a possible conspiracy theory against the Republican from Alabama, and agreed with co-host Lynda McLaughlin when she stated that the acts were 'consenual.' Stated Hannity:

You've got the establishment - they hate Roy Moore. Roy Moore, to them, is another Ted Cruz, another Mike Lee, somebody they can't control. Do some people do it for political reasons?

Children cannot consent to sex, Mr. Hannity.

After media outlets picked up his comments, Hannity dialed them back, claiming via Twitter that he had been misquoted and that his comments had been taken out of context.

Poor Sean Hannity, he said something stupid and got called out on it by the big, mean, liberal media.

The age of 'consent' in Alabama is 16, and Hannity is claiming that his remarks were regarding two women who were ages 16 and 17 at the time that 30-something Roy Moore had sexual contact with them. But even if Hannity was only referring to the 16 and 17 year-olds, he is still defending a man who lured children into his home to have sexual contact with them. That is literally the definition of 'pedophile.'

Thank you, Sean Hannity, for making it crystal clear to us that you will stoop to any level and go to any length to further the disgusting agenda of your buddies in the GOP.
