Did Sean Hannity vape live on air?
On March 19 Hannity was caught puffing away on a vape oblivious to the fact that his show was back live on the air.
The prime-time political commentator was caught off guard as the show, Hannity, came back from a commercial.
During the hilarious gaffe, Hannity can be seen staring down, apparently reading something, with his glasses skew-whiff as he puffed away on his vape before letting out a plume of mist.
For several seconds he seems to be aware, before quickly tossing his vape and looking around in an anxious way.Hannity was caught vaping on airCredit: Fox News
Realizing his blunder, he finally offered up an "uh-oh".
As Hannity handed over to Laura Ingraham, she posed with a water glass in her hand, jokingly prodding her colleague.
She said: "Oh wait, am I on camera right now?
"It happens to the best of us, Hannity" she continued. "I mean, those little moments are cute. Those are in the forever reel of the real Hannity. We wanna know you!"
"Enjoy it, everybody, at my expense," Hannity said before signing off.His co-host Laura Ingraham teased him about the blunderCredit: Fox News
Will Sean Hannity replace Rush Limbaugh?
In February 2020, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh announced he was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer.
It's widely believed that Limbaugh's lung cancer diagnosis was correlated with his history of smoking, however, the radio host never confirmed those claims.
He passed away on February 17, 2021.

It's unclear if Hannity will step into Limbaugh's role, but for now, guest hosts such as Mark Steyn, Todd Herman and Ken Matthews, who helped fill in while Limbaugh underwent cancer treatment over the past year, will help guide the show from segment to segment, the network said.
