Fox News correspondent Sean Hannity has further proven that he is absolutely, 100-percent full of shit. He got on his radio show, and he actually said:
“Nobody picked on Malia and Sasha, no conservative that I know of. Nobody picked on Michelle Obama except for the stupid statements, ‘for the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country.’ She inserted herself into the campaign. If she’s going to say something like that then she deserves to be criticized.”
Let’s see just how “nice” the Republicans have been to the Obamas:
Back in 2013, Hannity himself had a fit over Sasha and Malia taking trips for spring break.
Just last year, Hannity said that he would like to send the Obamas away to Kenya or Indonesia or Canada, as long as they don’t come back.
Michelle Obama has said this about the racism she’s dealt with while First Lady:
“There was the first time I was on a magazine cover—it was a cartoon drawing of me with a huge afro and machine gun. Now, yeah, it was satire, but if I’m really being honest, it knocked me back a bit.”
“And over the years, folks have used plenty of interesting words to describe me. One said I exhibited ‘a little bit of uppity-ism.’ Another noted that I was one of my husband’s ‘cronies of color.’ Cable news once charmingly referred to me as ‘Obama’s Baby Mama.’ And all of this used to really get to me. Back in those days, I had a lot of sleepless nights, worrying about what people thought of me.”
It’s not just the Republican politicians, either. Idiot right-wingers have been saying racist things about the Obamas for years. A mayor in West Virginia resigned because of a post she wrote calling Michelle Obama an “ape in heels.”
My, what a short memory you have, Mr. Hannity. Or would that be a ‘selective’ memory?
