Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity raised serious concerns about Kathy Barnette, a black conservative running for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania.
Hannity used a flurry of old tweets to attack Barnette for among other things being homophobic.
The longtime television host has endorsed Barnette’s opponent, Dr. Oz.
Dr. Oz is facing attacks as well for his position on abortion rights, transgenderism and gun control.
“If Dr. Oz was really leading in the polls, why was he bashing and trashing his opponent Kathy Barnette on Hannity,” Diamond & Silk wrote on Twitter.

And here’s Barnette’s response to the RINO accusations that she was pro-Obama Marxist.

Meanwhile, supporters of Dr. Oz are sharing a video that has been heavily edited that allegedly shows Barnette ranting about white racism.
This is troubling. Watch @Kathy4Truth in her own words. https://t.co/wjL8aKXsUF— Richard Grenell (@RichardGrenell) May 11, 2022

They only Smear who they Fear!
GOP leadership is in a backstage panic over Kathy Barnette but unclear whether they’ll do anything substantial to stop her… McConnell’s SLF has no current plans to intervene and Thune says they’ll leave it to the voters. https://t.co/tGf7eGgtv7— Jonathan Swan (@jonathanvswan) May 12, 2022
