Watch: Sean Hannity Totally Loses His Sh*t With Palestinian Guest

Sean Hannity became increasingly hostile toward a Palestinian guest on Thursday.

Before cutting off Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in Washington, Hannity proudly displayed his bias.

Hannity asked, "Is Hamas a terrorist organization?" Hannity asked.

 “Do I get to actually speak now?” Munayyer said.

"You get to answer the question, it’s a simple yes or no question,” Hannity responded.

 “Sir, you invited me on here as a guest,” Munayyer said.

 “I’m asking a question," Hannity said again. "Is Hamas, whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel, is that a terrorist organization? That’s a yes or no question.”

 “Thank you for your question and now I will provide an answer,” Munayyer replied. “It’s very telling to me, and it should be telling to your viewers by the way, that the moment you have a Palestinian voice on your program who begins to explain the legitimate grievances of Palestinians on the ground, not just Hamas--”

Hannity began shouting at Munayyer to answer the question.

 "Am I a guest on your program or am I on the witness stand here?" Munayyer asked.

"Yeah you're a guest, but you don't get to filibuster," Hannity said. "Answer, is Hamas a terrorist organization?"

 Munayyer answered, saying that the United States designates Hamas as such.

 "What part of this can't you get through your thick head?" Hannity shot back.

 Munayyer asked if he would get to say anything further. "You had your chance," Hannity said as he cut off the guest. "You didn’t say Hamas is a terrorist organization. Goodbye.”
