Fox News’ Sean Hannity announced Thursday he’d be off the air until 2022, days after bombshell revelations about a private text message he sent then-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows during the storming of the U.S. Capitol.
“I’m coming back ready for a political fight,” vowed the Trump apologist, who in his Jan. 6 text to Meadows urged him to get then-President Donald Trump to call off the violent mob of his supporters.
“On vacation, I try to center myself, find God, and then get my creative juices flowing, and I already know where I’m headed,” Hannity told Ingraham. “I know next year is the biggest most important midterm election year in our lives and I’m going to be focused like a laser beam.”
Ingraham likened his comments to a framed poster on a corporate wall.
In this case, however, it appears to be a normal vacation. Last year, for instance, Jason Chaffetz guest-hosted the show over the holidays.
Clarification: This story was updated to note that Hannity has taken the same time off in previous years.
