WATCH: Sean Hannity Calls for Assassination of Vladimir Putin; Questions Decades-Old Executive Order Forbidding Political Assassination


U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham went on Fox News Thursday evening and called for the assassination of Vladimir Putin.

Did Lindsey Graham Just Call for the Assassination of Vladimir Putin? (WATCH)

Sean Hannity joined the warmongering rhetoric and followed up Graham's call for the assassination of a foreign leader.


"You forfeit your right to live," Hannity said.

"I hope that people around Vladimir Putin.... I hope they take action sooner than later."

Hannity referenced an executive order the U.S. operates under that prohibits government employees from engaging in political assassinations (we won't go into clandestine operations conducted by the intelligence community in this post).

In regard to Vladimir Putin, Hannity suggested reforming the executive order.

"You invade a sovereign country. You kill innocent men, women, and children. You forfeit your right to run a country. You forfeit your right to live," explained Hannity.

"Cut off the head of the snake, the snake dies."

Here's a longer clip via Rumble:

Twitter users commented on Hannity salivating the prospects of war with Russia:

American Wire noted the contrasting approach suggested by Tucker Carlson:

Tucker Carlson, it seems, it not quite so keen on escalating the aggressions. While noting President Joe Biden’s rousing support of Ukraine in his State of the Union address — as well as the open displays of support from many members of Congress — he cautioned that removing Putin could have a far more destabilizing effect on the world, and he wondered where support for the many issues impacting Americans could be seen .

“[Biden] talked far more about Ukraine and with much greater passion than about any other topic,” Tucker stated. “Biden delivered exactly the speech everyone wanted to hear. Virtually every lawmaker in the room last night from both parties arrived wearing some version of the Ukrainian flag.”

He noted that, while House Minority Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) was sporting a Ukrainian flag lapel and pocket square, Old Glory was an absent accessory.


“That’s about as Ukrainian as you can get,” Tucker said. “Even the president of Ukraine doesn’t do that very often. What McCarthy conspicuously didn’t do, was don an American flag pin. No, not at all. And many others went without that too, because within the context of [the State of the Union address], the American was literally irrelevant.”

Tucker stated that the Russian economy is “destroyed” and liberating Ukraine “by force” is not an option for the United States. He then questioned the wisdom of forcing Putin out.

“What’s the point of all of this?” he asked. “Putin’s bad. No one in America is going to argue with that. But will destroying the entire Russian economy make Putin less bad? Will it force Russia troops to withdraw from Ukraine? And if it will, how exactly will that work and how long will it take?”

“Or is the plan bigger than that?” Tucker mused. “Is the idea that we can force Vladimir Putin from office entirely? Okay. Will that work? And if it does work, what happens to Russia after Vladimir Putin leaves?”

The controversial Fox host wondered if, given America’s history with regime changes, the devil we know may not be a safer bet.

“Would the next Russian president be an improvement over Putin?” Tucker asked. “Or would Russia descend into barbarous chaos like Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan did once we overthrew their governments?”
