We are definitely living in strange times, folks. Like many people reading this probably have, while I’ve never wanted to do it, I’ve often wondered what it would be like to live under an oppressive regime propped up by state-run media and propaganda. It’s one thing to deal with dishonest members of the media, or some crackpot conspiracy theorists, but it’s quite another to be faced with some sort of authoritarian ruler backed by a media controlled by the government that will, without shame, deny indisputable facts and make absolutely outrageous claims that they expect people to believe.
I no longer wonder what that’s like because we’re seeing a version of that right now as it relates to Donald Trump and Fox News.
Aside from a handful of people on the network who’ve still maintained their dignity and integrity, the vast majority of the network has become nothing more than Trump’s own version of state-run media, with Sean Hannity as his head cheerleader.
Hannity has always been a pathological-lying scumbag, but he’s taken his shameful hypocrisies and lies to an entirely different level since the rise of Trump. He’s gone from your typical right-wing fraud similar to the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck and morphed into a full-blown conspiracy theorist rivaling the insane rants of a whack job like Alex Jones.
For instance, on Friday when he accused Barack Obama of being obsessed with Donald Trump.
No, that’s not a joke.
“The former president is obviously sick, pathetic, and twisted in this obsession with President Trump. It’s kind of like everyone in the media,” Hannity said. “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.”
Yes, a cheerleader for a “president” who obsesses about Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama on a daily basis, who seems to base most of his governing decisions on “whatever Obama supports, I’m against,” is accusing our former president of being “obsessed with Trump.”
I guess Hannity has forgotten that Trump’s obsession with Obama is so incredibly pathetic that he blatantly lied about the size of his inauguration crowd just so he could falsely claim it was larger than Obama’s crowd.
Even foreign diplomats recognize and mock Trump’s obsession with Obama.
Though I’d also like to point out the irony of someone like Hannity claiming that Obama is obsessed with Trump when he’s clearly obsessed with Hillary Clinton. I’m willing to bet if I went back through every single one of Hannity’s shows over the last few months, I couldn’t find more than a handful (if any at all) where he hasn’t mentioned her name.
Oh, and to call Obama “no class” when you’re someone who defends a lowlife scumbag and self-admitted sexual predator like Trump?
You just can’t make this trash up.
We are truly living in “Bizzaro World” right now. Almost nothing makes sense anymore because we’re dealing with people who just seem to be making this crap up as they go.
