“I can’t believe it’s been a year,” Sean Hannity told Fox News Digital

“The great gift that I think Rush had is he always had a unique take on whatever the issue of the day was, that nobody else would ever think of. I can’t tell you how many times he would say something and I’d be like, ‘Why wouldn’t I think like that?’ He just had a gift that nobody else had,” Hannity said. “You want to talk about the greatest of all time, the goat? It’s definitely Rush.”
