“He needs to pick up the phone, I suggest, just call Mar-a-Lago and bring unity to the country as he says he so desperately wants,” said Hannity, responding to Biden’s prime time address on the coronavirus pandemic.
Biden should thank Trump “because a few moments ago he tried to take credit for everything that Donald Trump did on COVID-19,” Hannity continued. “Three vaccines: thanks to Donald trump’s Operation Warp Speed.”
“Why don’t you just thank Donald Trump?” Hannity added. “No Trump, no vaccine Joe. Stop taking credit for something you had nothing to do with.”
Critics, however, reminded Hannity of the ex-president’s overall disastrous response to the pandemic ― with him dismissing the threat of the virus, mocking people for wearing masks and holding packed campaign rallies. Trump ended up contracting COVID-19 and being hospitalized for three days.
Did Sean Hannity want Biden to call Trump to thank him for downplaying COVID, stigmatizing and politicizing masks, or pushing crack cures that don’t work? It was a little unclear.

That’s fair! How about:

In fairness, Hannity said exactly the same thing when Trump took credit for the great economy he inherited from Obama
