Skip to comments.Sources: Sean Hannity once pulled a gun on Juan Williams

The Wall Street Journal columnist who called Hannity the "dumbest anchor" on Fox News is a "jackass," according to Hannity. The forensic psychologist who suggested a blood vessel had popped inside Hannity's brain is a "jackass." Even the conservative MSNBC host who sometimes criticizes President Donald Trump is a "jackass."
If you criticize Hannity, or the Trump administration, there is a fair chance he will call you a "jackass" on Twitter. The chances of being called a "jackass" by Hannity are significantly higher late at night. Of the 21 people Hannity called a "jackass" in the last year, nearly half were told off between 9 p.m and 2 a.m. Hannity, Trump's biggest backer on television, has said this is entertainment for him: "I am a counterpuncher," he told one Twitter user who asked why he was so antagonistic. "I do not start fights but I finish them. This is pure entertainment for me. If people take cheap shots I hit back."
Still, Hannity's version of entertainment can go too far. Last year, after ending one of his many spirited on-air arguments with liberal contributor Juan Williams, Hannity pulled out a gun and pointed it directly at Williams, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident. He even turned on the laser sight, causing a red dot to bob around on Williams' body. (Hannity was just showing off, the sources said, but the unforeseen off-camera antic clearly disturbed Williams and others on set.)
For the record: Hannity's colleagues brought the Williams incident to the attention of Fox News executives, though it's not clear whether anything came of it. The sources said it went to Bill Shine, the network's co-president and longtime Fox News executive, who is Hannity's longtime friend and a former producer.

Someone’s panties are in a knot.
Only once ,LOL
Actually he has gotten better. I used to say, Hannity just reads GOP talking points every day... but in the last couple of years he has begun to find an independent streak. He is getting better.
Shouda’ shot him.
Yep. Fake News.
FTA..... “This incident is being sensationalized — everything was under total control throughout and I never felt like I was put in harm’s way,” Williams’ statement read. “It was clear that Sean put my safety and security above all else and we continue to be great friends.”
Sean Hannity is one of the hardest workers in any business known to man. He is proof positive that you don’t have to have the highest IQ to get far ahead of the best and the brightest - those men and women who have destroyed America.
And he’s not an anchor. That moron Bret Baier is an anchor. Sean has an opinion show.
“Without proof” alert
Once again Sean has an opportunity to do some good for humanity, but lacks the ability to follow through.
Well, it IS CNN, so it is automatically suspect.

He missed... darn
Hannity has leakers too.
Never trust a Democrat. Ever.
Haven’t we all?
CNN has become a deranged parody.
Sources and CNN = fairytale.
What a stupid thing to do. He failed to pull the trigger.
