Without a doubt, Sean Hannity is one of the biggest jokes in media. A partisan hack who’s so ridiculous that his own network called him out for lacking “editorial standards” in his love-fest with Donald Trump. While he’s always been a right-wing cheerleader, over the last few years he’s basically become nothing more than a conspiracy theorist featured on a mainstream “news” network.
Like Trump, Hannity loves to whine. During the election he went after several members of the conservative media for daring to speak out against the awfulness of Trump.
Now Hannity’s taking aim at congressional Republicans for failing to act on the bold promises they conned the American people into believing.
Let me run through a few excerpts from his little meltdown on FoxNews.com:
President Trump is shaking up Washington with a shock and awe campaign that has caught the establishment flat-footed – including the Republicans who are supposed to be helping him with the heavy lifting.
That part actually made me laugh. Can his nose get any further up the backside of Trump? Have some dignity for Christ’s sake.
But that was just the beginning. He then went on to brag about all of Trump’s “accomplishments” he’s done via executive orders. A rather hypocritical boast from a clown who used to constantly complain when President Obama used any executive orders to bypass Congress.
Then Hannity basically admitted that Republicans are nothing more than frauds and liars:
But it seems like the Republicans, who should be helping Trump advance the agenda America voted for, are always out to lunch.
Now, they’re saying that a bill to deal with ObamaCare may not be ready until the end of the year and that the promise Republicans have made for nearly eight years to “repeal and replace” it might be more like “repeal and repair.”
These are the same Republicans who repeatedly said that if the voters could only give them the White House, Senate and House, they would abolish ObamaCare once and for all. Now that these spineless, gutless and timid career politicians have all three, what’s their excuse?
Their “excuse” — is that they’re con artists who’ve been lying to the American people for years.
That’s why “Obamacare” hasn’t been repealed despite the fact House Republicans voted to do just that over 60 times while Obama was president. They wasted tens of millions of taxpayer dollars and shut down the government trying to repeal the damn law; meanwhile, what were they going to do if President Obama had given them what they wanted and signed their repeal?
Now here we are in a situation where Republicans have the power they’ve told their voters for years they needed to repeal “every last word of Obamacare” — and they haven’t done a damn thing. Surprise!
Hannity went on to say:
President Trump’s health care agenda is clear. He wants more competition, portability, erasing state lines and health care savings accounts.
Um, no, that’s not a “clear agenda.” Any fool can just say something — but Trump hasn’t submitted a plan to accomplish any of that. While Hannity’s whining about Republicans in Congress, Trump, himself, has said the replacement might not be for at least another year.
Then again, Hannity more or less admits that Republicans are nothing but propagandists:
There is no excuse for not having a plan to repeal or replace ObamaCare. There’s no excuse for not having a tax cut plan. There’s no excuse for not having a plan so we become energy independent or a plan to reduce or size and influence of government. You have the House, you have the Senate, you have a president that wants to move fast on everything the American people have spent years begging for.
He’s right in the regard that they do have the power to do all these bold promises they spent years promising they’d do. That goes back to my point that the party does nothing but make fear-mongering promises on which they know they can’t deliver.
And, for the record, 54% of the American people voted against Trump.
A point Hannity is missing in this rather laughable rant is that even though most Republicans are publicly standing with Trump, they know how terrible he is. Sean Hannity is upset because he sold his soul to suck up and kiss the backside of the biggest mistake this country ever “elected.” While many Republicans have done the same thing, few have become such over-the-top cheerleaders as Hannity. It really is an embarrassment that this fool is a feature on a major cable “news” channel.
All Hannity’s really complaining about here is what progressives have been saying about Republicans for years: They’re liars, con artists, and frauds.
They haven’t passed any tax plan because they know the bold promises Trump made would be an epic disaster. They haven’t repealed “Obamacare” because they never once came up with a plan to replace it, and have absolutely no idea what to do now. They haven’t gotten rid of the Iran deal because they don’t know how to do it. They haven’t found a way to “make Mexico pay for the wall” because there’s not a way for them to do that.
The simple reality is Republicans run campaigns based on fear-mongering, lying, and manipulating Americans into believing a bunch of nonsense that they never do. They run as the party of “fiscal responsibility” while adding trillions to the national debt every time they control the White House. They say they’re going to keep America safer, yet they give terrorists exactly what they want by vilifying Muslims. They say they’re all about the Constitution, while supporting a man who’s routinely bashed our First Amendment while trying to undermine our Third Branch of government.
So, Sean Hannity can whine and cry all he wants, but all he’s complaining about is that the myths he’s spent his career pushing aren’t happening because the party he backs is, and has been for decades, nothing but one giant con.
