Did Trump Surrogate Sean Hannity Threaten the RNC Chair? [VIDEO]

FOX News’ Sean Hannity has come under criticism by many for his seemingly constant defense of bloviating billionaire and GOP frontrunner Donald Trump.

In fact, during town halls with constitutional conservative and GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, Hannity frequently takes an adversarial role of Trump surrogate rather than show host.

During a segment on his show on Wednesday, Sean Hannity seems to have continued his role as Trump surrogate while “interviewing” RNC Chair Reince Priebus. Beyond that, Hannity looks to have issued a threat to Priebus and the RNC, in true Trump-style.

According to the rules, a candidate must secure 1,237 delegates in order to become the GOP nominee for president. The new Trump narrative is that if he is ahead in the delegate count, even if he doesn’t reach 1,237 delegates, then he should be the nominee or there “may be riots.”

Hannity goes after Priebus with this Trump talking point, and it was a bit disturbing.

Was this a threat or simply commentary?
