Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.), who apologized last night after yelling “you lie!” during the president’s address to Congress, appeared on Sean Hannity’s radio show to push back against the idea that he was actually wrong.

“At the end of the day, you’re right and the president is wrong,” said Hannity.

“You and I know it’s an expansion of big government, aside from giving benefits to illegal aliens,” said Wilson. He thanked Hannity and talk radio for pushing the issue and educating the public.

“I think that there’s a fear here,” said Hannity. “I think they’re having a hard time dealing with the fact that you were right about immigration.”

Update: Hannity ended the segment by telling listeners to donate to Wilson and playing a montage of Democrats being mean to George W. Bush.

“There’s quite a double standard, Sean.”
