Volvo has pulled its advertisements from Sean Hannity's show on Fox News after his coverage of sexual misconduct allegations made against Roy Moore. "You must immediately and fully come up with a satisfactory explanation for your inconsistencies", Hannity said.

Last week, The Washington Post published an investigative report in which four women claimed Moore pursued relationships with them while they were teenagers and he was in his 30s, including one who said Moore initiated a sexual encounter with her when she was 14.

Fox News opinion host Sean Hannity gave the embattled Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore an ultimatum to resolve lingering doubts prompted by the multiple sexual misconduct allegations against him.

Tuesday, a day after another woman went public in a news conference with accusations against Moore, Hannity seemed to change his tune.

Keurig announced Saturday it had pulled advertising from "Hannity" after several Twitter users questioned the host's coverage of the allegations against Moore.

"You know I do not and will never rush to judgment, because we have seen the media and politicians get it wrong so many times", he said. Then, when another accuser on Monday said Moore sexually assaulted her in a vehicle when she was 16, Moore denied knowing her.

Top Republican lawmakers, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) have already said Moore should leave the race due to the seriousness of the allegations against him and what they deem his inadequate responses.

Moore had denied knowing his fifth accuser, Brenda Young Nelson, however in a press conference Monday in New York, Nelson had held up her 1977 high school yearbook showing Moore's signature. "If you can't do this, then Judge Moore needs to get out of this race". We needed to correct answers first time on issues of this serious.

"This country has way too many issues and problems", he said. "We deserve answers and consistent answers", he added.
