Actor and documentary filmmaker Sean Penn appeared on Hannity on Tuesday to recount his time spent on the ground in Ukraine during the Russian invasion. Penn, who had previously traveled there last fall to film a documentary about the Ukraine-Russia conflict, also detailed relief efforts he is overseeing through his non-profit organization.
The lengthy discussion between two Seans who don’t see eye-to-eye on much was respectful, with Penn acknowledging from the outset that despite his reservations about Hannity’s trustworthiness, he could reach a lot of viewers with what he had to say.
Early in the interview, Hannity questioned Penn about his encounter with President Volodymyr Zelensky as the war was taking shape. “Did he see this coming? Did he believe that this was real?” the Fox News host asked.
