Fox News’ Sean Hannity gave an ultimatum to Roy Moore Tuesday about the sexual abuse allegations that have been plaguing his campaign for Alabama’s seat to the U.S. Senate.

Here’s what he said:
Hannity cited the interview he had with Moore that he said had inconsistent answers to serious questions about the allegations.
“Between him saying I never knew this girl, and then that yearbook comes out,” he said, referring to the yearbook an accuser produced with what appeared to be Moore’s handwriting inside.
“For me, the judge has 24 hours,” Hannity said. “You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed.”
“You must remove any doubt,’ he added. “If you can’t do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race.”
“This country has way too many issues and problems. The American people deserve 100% truth and honesty,” Hannity concluded.
Hannity had been a stalwart defender of Moore, even going so far as to face advertisers dropping his show from a liberal campaign over the Moore interview.
The ultimatum came on the same day as the announcement from the Republican National Committee saying they would no longer support Moore’s campaign.
