Upset with Republicans' inability to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Fox News host Sean Hannity said the party was “dead,” “morally corrupt,” and “weak.”
During his radio show on Monday, Hannity told former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon that his party left him and turned on President Donald Trump when he entered the White House.
“Then they get the White House, and then they turn on a man that's advocating the same principles that they have been quoting for years on the campaign trail,” Hannity said, according to The Hill.
“It is a dead party. They are morally corrupt, they are weak,” he also said.
Hannity's comments followed multiple failed attempts by congressional Republicans to scale back the ACA, also known as Obamacare. But according to Hannity, Republicans never even intended to repeal the Obama-era health law.
“They are ineffective, they're vision-less, and they have no identity,” he also said of the party.
Last week, Senate Republicans passed a tax reform package that would repeal the penalties of the ACA's controversial individual mandate.
