Colbert's Late Show edits together an alternate Sean Hannity reaction to his outing as Michael Cohen's client

Sean Hannity

On Monday night's Hannity, Fox News star Sean Hannity faced a mild dressing-down from guest Alan Dershowitz for editorializing about the FBI's Michael Cohen raids last week without disclosing that he had sought legal advice from Cohen — or, as Cohen's lawyers claimed in court Monday, that Hannity was one of Cohen's three clients. Hannity defended himself and claimed his "discussions with Michael Cohen never rose to any level that I needed to tell anyone." But what if he had just owned up to making a mistake? The Late Show created that alternate Hannity, and you can watch Hannity excoriate himself below, via the magic of television editing. Peter Weber
