"For me, the judge has 24 hours", Hannity said.
Facing an exodus of advertisers, the Fox News host gave the firebrand jurist until Wednesday night to disprove the harrowing claims of sexual misconduct five women have lodged against him. "If you can't do this, then you need to get out of this race".
Also, Hannity played tape of Moore saying an accuser who was flanked by attorney Gloria Allred made allegations about him that were "absolutely false", adding that he did not know the woman. "You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies that I just showed".
Other companies including Keurig announced they would stop advertising on Hannity's show, but later reversed course.
When asked by a Banker & Tradesman reporter on Twitter why Realtor.com deleted the tweet announcing it would pull ads from Hannity's show and how it would explain the move to its members, almost two-thirds of whom are women, a spokesperson for Realtor.com replied with a link to the company's full official statement.
In his show Tuesday, Hannity pointed to inconsistencies in Moore's account.
During the Hannity interview, Moore admitted to dating teens when he was in his 30s but said the alleged sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl "never happened". The new accuser said she thought Moore was going to rape her and described in tearful, credible, intimate detail how he assaulted her in his auto behind the restaurant she worked.
A fifth woman came forward Monday to accuse Moore of sexually abusing her when she was 16.
Moore has denied the sexual misconduct allegations. Then, when another accuser on Monday said Moore sexually assaulted her in a vehicle when she was 16, Moore denied knowing her.
"The American people deserve 100 percent truth and honesty", Hannity said. "We will continue to place ads across a broad range of networks, including Fox News and its top shows". You owe that to the people of Alabama, to the Republican Party that you represent and to the country which is suffering under so many problems.
