Hannity and Penn both claim that Penn told Hannity the first thing he did was to tell Hannity he didn't trust him. What was the reason for your distrust in me? Hannity laughed and asked‚ Yes‚ Penn said‚ there are many reasons that I don't trust you. Hannity struggled to let that go and would bring up the question of trust again. Penn stated that he did not get too concerned about Hannity's lack of trust because the events in Ukraine are so important. Penn stated that he doesn't think he has the time or patience to allow his lack of trust become a trivial thing. People‚ including babies are being killed. These people fight for our dreams‚ which is what all Americans want. That was something we also discussed and agreed to. Penn talked about his first encounter with Volodymyr Zelensky‚ the Ukrainian president. This was months before Hannity brought up the topic of trust. Penn stated that it was interesting. He had first met Penn via Zoom. Did you feel comfortable with him? Hannity said‚ I trust him more than you. Penn said that this baggage dates back to 2007‚ when Hannity called Penn an enemy of state. Hannity asked Penn why Penn didn't believe him at the end. Penn then used an analogy as a way to summarize their situation. Penn explained that after an accident‚ there is a lot more physical therapy. It's not possible to do it all in one day.
