Sean Hannity: Jon Stewart ‘has his head so far up Obama’s a*s he cannot see clearly’

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity and his Daily Show counterpart, Jon Stewart, engaged in another war of words on Tuesday, Politico reported.

“Jon’s problem is he has his head so far up [President Barack] Obama’s a*s he cannot see clearly,” Hannity said in a statement. “He is obviously better suited to reading his joke writers material, and making his clapping seal audience happy.”

The latest clash between Stewart and Hannity began when Stewart criticized the Fox host in an interview with Rolling Stone that touched on Stewart’s views on both Hannity’s colleague Bill O’Reilly and Fox News itself.

“Sean Hannity is probably the most loathsome dude over there,” Stewart said. “That’s just pure cynicism, and it’s horrible. Everything is presented in as devious a manner as it could be possibly be presented.”

Stewart was more complimentary of O’Reilly, saying that conservative philosophy had tilted so far to the right that the Factor host almost looked like a “Kennedy Democrat” by comparison.

“He reminds me of everybody I grew up with,” Stewart said of O’Reilly. “I have real affection for where I grew up, though I disagree with many of the people, and it helps me understand that I have to remain open to argument and contact. People say, ‘Why do you have him on? He’s evil!’ But I don’t think he’s evil. He has a viewpoint. It’s pretty rigid. It’s dogma. I don’t think it’s informed, but he argues it well. He has a sense of humor about it.”

However, Stewart said he did not plan to invite Hannity onto his show for a discussion.

“That’s probably a shortcoming, but I have no interest in that,” he conceded. “I probably should. It would be interesting, I guess.”

Hannity responded by mockingly saying he was waiting for Stewart to invite “Fatwah supporter Cat Stevens” to another “rally for sanity” event, a reference to the singer, now known as Yusuf Islam. Hannity had brought up Islam’s threat against novelist Salman Rushdie this past April.

Stewart responded by calling Hannity out for the hypocrisy of criticizing Islam while promoting far-right rocker Ted Nugent as a “friend of the show.”

On Tuesday, Hannity referred to Obama as Stewart’s “beloved president,” and slammed his record.

“Do I even need to remind him about keeping our doctors, our health plans and saving money?” he told Politico. “And how is that healthcare website working out? Or Iraq, Isis, the ‘Russian reset’?”

The mutual disdain between the two received wider attention earlier this year, when Stewart called Hannity “the Arby’s of news” over his support of anti-government rancher Cliven Bundy. Hannity then insisted he was arguing in favor of “proportionality” from federal officials trying to seize Bundy’s cattle for his refusal to pay federal grazing fees.

Published

President Donald Trump's Michigan supporters are abandoning their 2016 pick for Vice President Joe Biden as the election comes closer.

In a series of interviews on MSNBC Sunday, revisited voters they'd met earlier in the election cycle in Kent County.

Katey Morse and her husband were both working full time, and their kids were in school back in March, but things quickly changed as the coronavirus spread throughout the country. Luckily, she and her husband didn't lose their jobs, but they, like many parents, are struggling to do virtual school for their kids.

"I'm turning into more of an angry person than I've ever been in my life," she said about how she feels politically, noting that it makes her sad. "I've just got a countdown to November now, and I'm hoping we'll wake up from this nightmare we're in."

Trump abusing the intelligence community in an attempt to keep them quiet about Russia election hacks: Conservative

Published

on

The New York Times Magazine piece outlining President Donald Trump's battles with the U.S. intelligence community revealed that Russia is continuing to wage its own cyberwar against the world. According to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot, the devastating report explained the extent to which the president is ignoring the threats to the 2020 election.

“The options faced by the intelligence community during Trump’s presidency have been stark: avoid infuriating the president but compromise the agencies’ ostensible independence, or assert that independence and find yourself replaced with a more sycophantic alternative," wrote Robert Draper in his lengthy investigation into Trump's efforts to politicize international intelligence. According to Boot, the most shocking part of the investigation was that the experts in the intelligence community have been banned from speaking honestly about the Russian attacks.

‘Incompetent moron’ Chuck Todd ripped for letting Trump official claim Democrats want more COVID-19 deaths

Published

on

"Meet the Press" host Chuck Todd is under fire -- once again -- after letting Donald Trump's trade adviser Peter Navarro claim on NBC that Democrats want more Americans to die during the coronavirus pandemic to boost their chances at the polls in November.

Instead of pushing back the NBC host known for his lack of follow-up questions let the comment slide by responding, "I take your point."

Todd's failure to call out the Trump aide for what one Twitter commenter called a "disgusting" comment led to an avalanche of criticism for the MBC political director who recently saw his weekday show cut back to make room for more commentary by colleague Nicolle Wallace.
