Fox News host/right-wing propagandist/paid liar Sean Hannity may have just put himself in the running for the nonexistent award of Hypocrite of the Year.
The perfect example of Hannity’s disgusting hypocrisy and sheer idiocy can be found on his website, where he decided it would be a great idea to criticize President Joe Biden for playing golf over Mother’s Day weekend while his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, was visiting Ukraine:
The optics on this are terrible. According to a report from The Daily Wire, while First Lady Dr. Jill Biden was visiting war torn Ukraine —on Mother’s Day —President Joe Biden was working on his golf swing, hitting the links with his brother Jimmy. Meanwhile, across the world and in a literal war zone, First Lady Jill Biden was doing Joe’s job. No word on how Joe’s golf game went.
Now ask yourself a question: Do you suppose either Donald or Melania Trump would have set foot in Ukraine? Donald wouldn’t have because his BFF Vladimir Putin would never have given him the approval. Melania wouldn’t have because, to quote her jacket as she went to visit migrant children being held at internment camps on the border: I really don’t care. Do you?
Oh, and let’s not forget that Donald Trump played more golf and took more “personal time” away from the White House than any president in recent memory. How much? Let’s take a quick look:
- “If we, therefore, assume a blanket average of $3.4 million per trip, regardless of duration, the total the government has spent on Trump’s trips to the (Mar-a-Lago) resort tops $64 million.” (Washington Post; Feb. 5, 2019)
- “Donald Trump’s golf habit has already cost taxpayers at least $102 million in extra travel and security expenses, and next month will achieve a new milestone: a seven-figure presidential visit to another country so he can play at his own course.” (HuffPost; March 22, 2019)
Trump even played golf at the height of the COVID pandemic. Thousands of Americans were dying each day while Donald hit the links and gave the occasional press conference where he lied about the severity of coronavirus.
Sorry, Sean, but your bullshit only makes you look like the willfully uninformed dolt you are and always will be.
