Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Wednesday for “demonizing hardworking truckers” involved in the nation’s Freedom Convoy rather than genuinely addressing their concerns.
Hannity made the remarks during his Wednesday night “Hannity” broadcast that highlighted the growing impact of the Canadian trucker convoy that has occupied the nation’s capital of Ottawa, now in its sixth day.

“To the left, anyone that stands for freedom, liberty, instantly becomes the enemy. Especially far-left failed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau who is now resorting to the predictable baseless smear attacks instead of seriously addressing the truckers’ concerns,” Hannity said.
His comments went on to attack Trudeau’s total failure to address Canada’s truckers. Trudeau instead tweeted on Tuesday, “Today in the House, Members of Parliament unanimously condemned the antisemitism, Islamophobia, anti-Black racism, homophobia, and transphobia that we’ve seen on display in Ottawa over the past number of days. Together, let’s keep working to make Canada more inclusive.”

The Fox News personality added that he had a direct message for Trudeau regarding his misrepresentation and mistreatment of Canada’s truckers.
“I have a message for you Prime Minister,” Hannity said. “You’re a disgrace in terms of being an excuse for a leader. But demonizing hardworking truckers and anyone else who doesn’t surrender to your point-of-view….This is how you lead when you’re supposed to be a public servant?” Hannity also accused Trudeau of embodying the left’s “never-ending” power grab.“It’s the complete embodiment of the failed far-left rule, never-ending pandemic power grabs,” Hannity commented.
“Instead of lecturing these guys that are pivotal to the supply chain, and literally bring everything to every store that consumers need, why don’t you get your a** out of your office and go to Ottawa, sit down with the truckers, and listen to them,” the Fox News host argued. “Start being a public servant instead of a public lecturer.”Hannity also addressed a popular GoFundMe fundraiser started by organizers of the Freedom Convoy that reached more than $10 million in donations but has now been locked by the platform.
