I’ve never been a fan of Fox News’ Sean Hannity. If you really want to see what’s wrong with our government, and our country in general, look no further than hypocrites like him who are nothing more than propagandists peddling lies, conspiracies, and fake outrage trying to defend what’s often indefensible.
While I’ve always known Hannity was a hack who preys on the ignorant, Trump’s rise to the top of the Republican Party has proven what a fraud he truly is. Someone who spent years playing up Benghazi and Hillary Clinton’s emails as two of the biggest scandals in this country’s history, who now parrots the “president’s” talking point that the on-going investigation into whether or not Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia is “fake news.” Even though every rational person reading this knows that if a Democrat were linked to a fraction of the scandals Trump has been thus far, while also acting like he does about them, Hannity would be losing his damn mind, calling them a traitor who needed to be impeached and imprisoned.
Can you imagine what Hannity would be saying if Clinton were president and her daughter was busted setting up a meeting with a foreign enemy during last year’s election where they were promising dirt on Trump as part of their effort to help her campaign?
He would have lost his damn mind — not given Chelsea a softball “interview.”
Well, in another display of how full of crap Hannity is, he threw an absolute hissy fit over the failure of Donald Trump and Republicans to “repeal and replace Obamacare” — something they’ve spent the last seven years promising to do.
“What happened last night was a disgrace.” Hannity said. “They don’t want the president to succeed either. Look at the pathetic display from Senate Republicans this week. Seven years of promises and they couldn’t even pass the ‘skinny repeal’?”
Actually, based on the fact that we’re six months into Trump’s “presidency” and Republicans still hadn’t repealed and replaced Obamacare, what happened the other night seems about par for the course.
He seems “shocked” that Republicans have been exposed as frauds who never had any plan to replace Obamacare, spent the last few years lying about it to benefit themselves politically, and now that they were forced to turn their propaganda into action, backed down. Despite their anti-Obamacare crusade the last seven years, the GOP is well aware of how many conservatives have actually benefited from the law. What Hannity fails to mention is that, while the “skinny repeal” barely failed, the vote to reject the full-on repeal of Obamacare wasn’t even close.
As far as not wanting “the president to succeed,” that’s just idiotic. During his campaign he promised a bill that would make health care cheaper, better, and cover more Americans — yet Trumpcare literally would have done none of that. It was going to strip-down coverage, raise premiums, and 22 million fewer Americans would have had health insurance by 2026.
He then went on to claim that the “deck is stacked” against the Trump administration.
It’s easy to understand why Trump and Hannity get along so well; they’re two of the biggest crybabies I’ve ever seen. In case anybody’s forgotten, the Republican Party controls the House, the Senate, and the White House. If they can’t pass legislation that’s on them — and nobody else.
What Sean Hannity’s essentially whining about here is the fact that Donald Trump and the GOP are liars who pander to ignorance. Now he’s upset because their conservative fan fiction they all desperately want to be real is running up against a reality that would expose what con artists they are. They know if they instantly stripped health care away from millions — many of whom are their own voters — the political ramifications from that fallout would be catastrophic for the party at nearly every level of government.
So Hannity can blame whoever, or whatever, he wants for the failures of Donald Trump and the Republican Party in fulfilling the lies they fed to millions of naive people who actually believed their nonsense. The bottom line is, the only things that are “stacked against” them are reality, facts, and science.
