For a moment, it seemed like the Sean Hannity conspiracy train had come to a halt.
The Fox News host announced on his show Tuesday night that he would stop talking about the debunked claim that murdered DNC staffer Seth Rich had leaked thousands of emails to WikiLeaks “out of respect for the family’s wishes.”
Apparently, not discussing the matter means immediately going on Twitter and hitting Kim Dotcom with an OMG.
Then he posted a tweet with lots of caps, so you know to take it seriously.
Ok TO BE CLEAR, I am closer to the TRUTH than ever. Not only am I not stopping, I am working harder. Updates when available. Stay tuned!

But in case the FAKE NEWS distracted you from his important message, he followed it up with this:
It’s basically the social media equivalent of “please clap” — which, of course, the internet referenced as it roasted him.
I can understand indulging conspiracy theories for ratings, that’s basic stuff — but asking for retweets, at long last have you no decency https://t.co/Yu8CnzM8Oa

Sadly, nobody gets a year’s supply of tasty chicken nuggets if people retweet Hannity, just more conspiracy theories.
