Usually when Hannity tells a whopper, he’s a tad more clever than he was when he smeared the Clintons’ marriage and then immediately claimed “but I don’t like to judge other people’s marriages.”
The comment came during a discussion with Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina. During the debate Thursday night, Fiorina said, “Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”
Hannity played the clip on his show, then exclaimed with approval, “Ouch!”
“It seems like it’s a marriage of convenience to me but I don’t like to judge other people’s marriages,” Hannity added, with unintentional hilarity.
Fiorina claimed her point was that “Hillary Clinton has been on the inside of this game her whole life and done whatever she had to do, said whatever she had to say to gain and hang on to power.”
So that’s why Clinton doesn’t like to spend time with her husband? Really?
Fiorina went on to call the Clinton Global Initiative “a giant Ponzi scheme to buy and sell influence.” But as The Wall Street Journal pointed out – and, of course, Hannity didn’t - Fiorina has “appeared on panels at Clinton Global Initiative meetings in 2013 and 2014, and several organizations where she has had an advisory role have participated in CGI commitments.”
Then Fiorina delivered her next zinger: “Actually, Hillary Clinton has escaped prosecution more times than El Chapo. I think Sean Penn ought to interview her, honestly.”
This time, Hannity didn’t bite. Not that he didn’t appreciate the sentiment. He could be heard laughing offscreen. But he was more interested in gently suggesting it’s time for Fiorina to get out of the race. “Look, you had this meteoric rise and you’ve fallen off somewhat, that’s not deniable,” he said. “So walk me through your take on how you get the nomination at this point because the numbers are the numbers.”
After Fiorina insisted she’s in it “for the long haul,” Hannity added, “Listen, I want to be very clear. I think you have exceeded everybody’s expectation and you deserve a lot of credit for that. You’ve also added a lot to the process.” He didn’t say he thought she might win.
In fact, when Fiorina said she’s the candidate best able to beat Clinton, Hannity questioned it, saying that he thinks Clinton may well be indicted.
But I’m sure Fiorina will always be welcome on the show to take personal digs at the Clintons.

Well iCarly, I suspect that may have more to do with the fact HP didn’t love spending time with you — but that’s none of my business . . .
Funny; “marriages of convenience” usually don’t last almost 41 years, as the Clintons’ have . . . in fact, they usually last only as long as the pre-nupt dictates — like any one of Rush Limpballs’ unions . . .
‘But I Don’t Like To Judge Other People’s Marriages’
I don’t blame you, Seannie Poo — especially if you had to use Limpballs (married 4x), Rupie Murdoch (soon to be 4x), Trump (3x), or Newt (3x) as comparisons . . .
