Fresh After Her "White Hizzy" Remarks, Hannity Trots Out Sandra Smith To Attack Obama

Reported by Ellen - June 16, 2011 -

Less than a week after Fox Business' Sandra Smith joined in such a racially offensive discussion about President Obama that both Media Matters and ColorOfChange.org are demanding that host Eric Bolling be fired, Sean Hannity trotted her out for a presumably impartial response to the question, "Can America really afford four more years of this?"

On his Follow the Money showt last week, Bolling teased a segment about President Obama hosting the leader of Gabon at the White House by saying “Guess who's coming to dinner? A dictator. Mr. Obama shares a laugh with one of Africa's kleptocrats. It's not the first time he's had a hoodlum in the hizzouse." Plus, there was a photo of Gabon’s leader with a shining tooth and the repeated use of a banner saying, “Hoods in the House.”

Rather than disapprove of such an attitude, Smith joined in the bigoted fun by asking, “Do we really have to have him in the White Hizzy?”

As I've posted many times, Hannity has a long history of jumping to the side of white people in racial hot water. In this case, he didn't bring up the controversy but he did give Smith an especially enthusiastic welcome.
