Sean Hannity is widely known as one of Donald Trump's greatest supporters in spite of the fact that he and Trump have a number of differing beliefs.
While the Fox News host is a well-documented conservative and a hater of all things Hillary Clinton, Trump has, in the past, more closely identified with the Democratic party and been good friends with HRC and former President Bill Clinton.
In fact, there is a theory floating around that Trump is intentionally throwing the election to ensure a Hillary Presidency; a scenario that would earn Trump permanent residence in one of the circles of Hell in a conservative like Sean Hannity's mind.
However, Hannity's latest rhetoric seems to place blame for such a scenario on Republicans who oppose Trump, and as conservative pundit Ben Shapiro said this week while quoting "an online wog," "I wish my wife looked at me the way Sean Hannity looks at Donald Trump."
This week in Fact Checker: Sean Hannity's tale of a Trump rescue https://t.co/qjwJwB3kz9 pic.twitter.com/R3Ohllc4sdShapiro did not take credit for the line, but he didn't name the person who said it either. Considering that in political circles it's a laugh-out-loud funny line that houses a lot of truth, it raised the question for many searchers, "Where did that come from?"

The Inquisitr had that same question and sought to solve the riddle on behalf of the rest of you Googlers. With that said, here's where the hilarious tweet comes from.
I want my wife to look at me the way Sean Hannity looks at Donald Trump.Just who is Donny Ferguson other than a guy who wears cowboy hats and is a Sean Hannity troll second to none?

He is a former Senior Communications and Policy Adviser for former U.S. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas). In his role, Ferguson made a number of viral tweets that ended up on the front pages of Drudge and other conservative/libertarian-leaning outlets.
Today, Ferguson remains a conservative lobbyist having founded Ferguson & Associates, as well as Americans for a Better Economy, according to his LinkedIn profile.
With such credentials, why would he target Sean Hannity, one of conservatism's most outspoken representatives?
The answer is a microcosm for the 2016 election cycle and something that Ben Shapiro touched on right after bringing that Sean Hannity tweet back to the forefront.
Trump's polling is terrible, Shapiro says, because "Trump is a terrible candidate." From there, Shapiro lists a number of ways in which "the Donald" differs from conservatism and falls more in line with Clinton's policies.
He also shares a number of ways that Trump continually shoots himself in the foot in spite of Hillary Clinton being "one of the worst candidates" that the Democratic party, or any party, has ever run, he said.
"What Sean Hannity's solution was, was to get behind the one guy who is not conservative on any of the things that we [conservatives] believe," Shapiro said. "Donald Trump is not any of the things that Hannity proposes to be."
He continued, "He's [Sean Hannity] ripping into Ted Cruz and saying he didn't do enough to fight Obamacare? Excuse me, Ted Cruz was the guy filibustering Obamacare on the floor of the Senate and trying to shut down the government over it."
Essentially, Ben and a lot of other conservative talking heads and politicians are saying, Sean Hannity's solution was to back a candidate that did not stand for conservative values, and he attacked conservatives that called him on it.
Shapiro sees no difference between the real Trump and Hillary Clinton. But what do you think, readers?
