Sean Hannity apologizes for spouting bogus garbage about Michelle Obama that he found on the internet

Published

on

Fox News commentator Sean Hannity has been engaging in false information sharing as of recently, but on Tuesday he apologized after spreading a fake rumor on his radio show about the Obamas and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Mediaite reports.

Specifically, Hannity referenced a Gateway Pundit post titled “Rats Jump Ship=> Michelle Obama Did Scrubs Hillary Clinton from Twitter History?” which alleged that the First Lady and Warren deleted any references to Clinton from their Twitter accounts, including mentions.

Hannity suggested that the Obamas were scrubbing their tweets over Clinton’s illegal email server because “Obama is implicated here and he’s pissed.” He added, “You know what his legacy might be? Jail.”

However, the claim was just simply untrue.

On Monday, Hannity also retweeted rumors that Clinton was drunk at a campaign rally last week — and then denied it, so it’s nice to see him apologizing for some of the misinformation he is circulating.

In two tweets, Hannity wrote on Tuesday, “Correction. Live on radio I read a gateway pundit report that @MichelleObama had deleted mentions of HRC. And a listener said BHO and… Elizabeth Warren did same. Fact is they didn’t. I humbly apologize. Live radio.”

Here is what she wrote:

I study genocide. It's been a theme in my academic endeavours for nearly 30 years. More accurately, I study the conditions in the lead up to genocide, be they cultural, social, political, economic, etc... 1/n

Year of Rat hails easy ride for Donald Trump — but bumps for Harry and Meghan

Published

on

As the world prepares to welcome the Year of the Rat, feng shui masters predict a lucky year for Donald Trump, but warn Harry and Meghan's futures are less certain as they make a bid for freedom.

Both the US President and the Sussexes have begun 2020 with a bang.

The former is facing down an impeachment trial -- and seeking re-election in November -- while the latter are beginning a new chapter in Canada after consciously uncoupling from the gilded but pressured career of being a working British royal.

But if experts in the field of Chinese horoscopes are to be believed, it is the US president that will have the easier journey this year.

John Roberts caused a ‘crisis of democratic legitimacy’ — it’s ‘entirely fitting’ he has to preside over his mess: columnist

Published

on

Supreme Court Justice John Roberts was blasted in The Washington Post on Thursday for his culpability in creating the dynamics that resulted in President Donald Trump -- and his impeachment.

"There is justice in John Roberts being forced to preside silently over the impeachment trial of President Trump, hour after hour, day after tedious day," Dana Milbank wrote. "Roberts’s captivity is entirely fitting: He is forced to witness, with his own eyes, the mess he and his colleagues on the Supreme Court have made of the U.S. political system. As representatives of all three branches of government attend this unhappy family reunion, the living consequences of the Roberts Court’s decisions, and their corrosive effect on democracy, are plain to see."
