Sean Hannity says the allegations made against Roy Moore by several women are “false.” On November 9, the Fox News host defended the Alabama Senate candidate, who has been accused of having sexual relationships with teenage girls during his 30s.

Speaking to Lynda McLaughlin on The Sean Hannity Show, Hannity said the claims were only “false allegations” made especially at big companies with money.
“How do you possibly tell, know the truth...it’s he said, she said,” Hannity told McLaughlin.
He also said the alleged acts were consensual. “Okay, so, the two other girls were older in this case. He was apparently, like, 32, and he dated -- one girl was 18, one girl was 17. There was no sexual -- there was kissing involved, and then they're saying this one encounter with a 14-year-old.”

Later, on his Fox show, Hannity admitted that he misspoke when he said it was a consensual relationship between Moore and 14-year-old Leigh Corfman, who is now 53.
However, the left media had a field day with his comments nonetheless. Hannity took to Twitter to vent his frustration with the "Fake News" outlets.
