Leave it to Sean Hannity to find something controversial about Michelle Obama shopping at Target.
On Friday evening’s edition of Hannity, the Fox commentator took umbrage over the First Lady shopping at the renowned retail store. Clearly upset at seeing photographs of her at such a location, Hannity deemed that she has “an image problem along with her husband” and questioned the authenticity of her shopping at Target.
“Martha’s Vineyard, golfing, basketball, extravagant trips, a lot of diamonds, all this stuff,” he said. “So here’s her with a picture at Target, and it just so happens an AP photographer happens to be there, right?”
Taken aback by Hannity’s skepticism, both Republican strategist Karen Harenty and Democratic strategist Joe Trippi tried to place the focus back on President Obama. But that didn’t stop the conservative firebrand from getting one last jab at the First Lady.
“I shop there, but we’re being manipulated here,” he said.

Florida Republicans wrecked state’s unemployment system — forcing jobless to risk lives to fill out paperwork
Last week, some Republicans in Florida admitted that former Gov. Rick Scott had intentionally made it more difficult for residents in his state to receive unemployment benefits as a way to artificially keep unemployment statistics low.
“It’s a sh*t sandwich, and it was designed that way by Scott,” one adviser to current Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis told Politico. “It wasn’t about saving money. It was about making it harder for people to get benefits or keep benefits so that the unemployment numbers were low to give the governor something to brag about.”
Critics claim Trump’s ‘confession’ on permanent payroll tax cut is ‘an excuse to destroy our Social Security system’
President Donald Trump on Tuesday once again voiced his support for slashing the payroll tax—the primary funding mechanism for Social Security and Medicare—and said he would be calling for such a cut even if the U.S. were not currently in the midst of a nationwide public health and economic emergency.
"I would love to see a payroll tax cut," Trump, who has repeatedly vowed to "save" Social Security, said at the end of the Coronavirus Task Force briefing Tuesday evening. "I think on behalf of the people it would be quick... There are many people who would like to see it as a permanent tax cut."
MSNBC’s Morning Joe angrily blasts his own network for helping Trump spread coronavirus lies
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough bashed his own network for carrying President Donald Trump's daily coronavirus briefings without real-time fact checks.
The "Morning Joe" host worked himself into a shouting rant against MSNBC and other cable news networks that broadcast the president's news conferences without correcting the false claims until the briefings are over.
"The president lies so much in these press conferences, I still for the life of me don't understand why the networks, including our own, allow Donald Trump to lie for two hours to the American people," Scarborough said. "If he were giving good information, that would be one thing, but it is a lie. So if this network or CNN or Fox is going to run him lying for two hours a night, they need a real-time fact checker."
