Sean Hannity has distinguished himself as the Senior Trump-Fluffer on Fox News. He can be depended on to back the Former Guy no matter what the issue is. And now that Donald Trump is frantically lobbying Republicans to oppose President Biden’s “Build Back Better” initiatives in Congress, Hannity is obediently trailing behind like a good drooling sycophant.
On his Fox News program Thursday night, Hannity delivered a harangue that was supposed to be critical of the Democratic infrastructure legislation currently being discussed. But as usual, Hannity was too ignorant, and too obsessed with his knee-jerk, right-wing bias, to include any substantive arguments that support his position. It was just another childish, lie-riddled rant (video below). Hannity whined…
“The bill expands Medicare, Obamacare. It includes money for government housing, government funded medicine, government funded healthy food. Gee, I really need their healthy food advice. After all, they look so healthy. Joe [Biden] looks so healthy to me. And of course, government funded green energy programs.”
Oh my! Hannity is scaring his audience with the fearsome threat that Democrats are trying to strengthen Medicare and Obamacare, two of the most popular federal programs in modern history. And if that weren’t enough, he is also raising the horrifying prospects of having government help disadvantaged Americans with housing, medicine, and food assistance. Hannity’s alternative is apparently to promote homelessness, illness, and starvation.
In his attempt to malign these programs that have broad support across the country, Hannity threw one of his trademark insults at President Biden, suggesting that he isn’t “healthy.” It’s a tedious cliché on Fox News, where they have vainly tried to compare the active and avid Biker Joe to the Couch Potato Trump. But Hannity wasn’t through making an arse of himself:
“And that’s not all. The bill also gives billions in entitlements to illegal immigrants. Oh, why — when other countries charge for citizenship, why are we offering illegal immigrants that didn’t respect our laws or sovereignty, why are we offering them — making them pay?”
WHUT? There is nothing in any current draft of the legislation that “gives billions in entitlements to illegal immigrants.” Hannity is, once again, making things up because he doesn’t have the intellect to form a honest, coherent argument. What’s more, he seems to be proposing that the United States sell citizenship. Everything to these Republican grifters has a price tag on it. And citizenship is just another product, another opportunity to exploit people for profit. Plus, such a repulsive plan would mean that only the rich could emigrate to the U.S.
This is how the GOP thinks. It’s how their “brain” trust at Fox News thinks. But it isn’t how the American people want their nation to be run. America is not a subdivision of Walmart where principles and patriotism are for sale. And the more that cretins like Hannity treat it like that, the deeper they will dig themselves into irrelevancy.
