Fox News host and perennial hack Sean Hannity got his feelings hurt because someone dared to criticize his orange savior, Donald Trump.
On his show Thursday, Hannity made reference to a speech given this week by former President Barack Obama in which he warned:
“We have to tend to this garden of democracy, or else things could fall apart quickly.
“That’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s, which, despite the democracy of the Weimar Republic and centuries of high-level cultural and scientific achievements, Adolph Hitler rose to dominate. Sixty million people died. . . .So, you’ve got to pay attention. And vote.”
We do indeed have to tend to democracy. It has been taken away in far too many once-democratic countries. We need to pay attention and we all need to vote. But to hear Hannity tell it, Obama stepped over the line, saying it was:
“Very cute, very clever, comparing the president, in a subtle way, to Hitler and Nazis.”
Hey, Sean, as the old saying goes: If the shoe fits, wear it.
Next, Hannity tried to assert that Obama is obsessed with Trump:
“The former president is obviously sick, pathetic, and twisted in this obsession with President Trump. It’s kind of like everyone in the media. Every single chance Obama gets, whether it be here or at home, overseas it doesn’t matter, he’s trashing, trying to undermine the president. Maybe he can’t get over the fact that his record was atrocious. Maybe he needs to take his own advice and accept the results of the election.”
Trump has been taking potshots at Obama ever since he first ran for president and still cannot resist comparing himself to Obama anytime he gets a chance. There’s your “twisted” obsession, Sean. Both Trump and Hannity trashed President Obama over his two terms in office. But now that Obama dares to make a comment Sean doesn’t like, he goes off on a rant.
I was born and raised in the South, and I’ve heard the following expression my entire life: A hit dog always hollers.
Maybe if Sean Hannity didn’t feel so guilty for his own vitriol and lies, he wouldn’t be such a whiny little douchebag when his traitorous BFF has to take a verbal punch.
