Sean Hannity comes completely unglued over alleged ‘secret sperm’ hidden in Obama’s portrait

Published

on

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday came completely unglued over what he claimed was a “secret sperm” hidden within former President Barack Obama’s official portrait.

Writing on Twitter, Hannity said that Obama’s portrait, which was unveiled on Monday, was loaded with “inappropriate sexual innuendo” that showed “a stark contrast to predecessors.”

As evidence for this claim, Hannity posted a link to an article on his own website titled, “PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM.'”

[Editor’s note: Fox personality Sean Hannity pulled the post down late Tuesday afternoon stating, “It does not reflect my voice.”]

The article itself details Obama portrait artist Kehinde Wiley’s past use of what the New York Times has described as “rich textile or wallpaper backgrounds whose patterns he has likened to abstractions of sperm.”

The article then zooms in on a portion of the Obama portrait that it believes depicts a sperm swimming on the former president’s head, just around the area of his left temple.

The Hannity article said that the purported sperm in the Obama painting was part of a “shocking” and “widening scandal” about the portrait. In addition to painting the supposed sperm, notes the Hannity article, Kehinde Wiley has in the past made jokes about “killing Whitey.”

The article was later deleted from the website. “Earlier today my web staff posted content that was not reviewed by me before publication. It does not reflect my voice and message and, therefore, I had it taken down,” Hannity said in a statement.

Published

on

New Yorker editor David Remnick described the singular "humiliation" that comes from enduring Donald Trump's presidency.

The veteran journalist recalled how Trump presented himself as a Republican candidate and compared that to his blame-shifting presidency, which he told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" was all the more tragic as the coronavirus claims thousands of American lives.

"What you have right now is a president of the United States who began his national ascent at the Republican National Convention saying, 'I alone can do it,'" Remnick said. "Remember that? 'I alone can do it.'"

Published

The chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Richard Burr, sold off almost $47,000 dollars worth of shares in a small Dutch fertilizer company in 2018, just weeks before its stock began a sharp 40% collapse.

Beginning on Sept. 5, 2018, Burr and his wife sold off their stake in the company, OCI, in three days when its shares were priced near their highest point in the last four years.

A month later, the company, which is not traded on a U.S. stock exchange, began to falter, completing its dramatic fall after news that the company failed to meet quarterly earnings expectations.
