Sean Hannity first mocked Chrissy Teigen’s anxiety about Donald Trump. Then he boasted about having some kind of “story” about her that he was too “nice” to tell on the air.
On Thursday night, Hannity paused from his gloating over the House of Representatives passing the draconian Trumpcare bill for yet another opportunity to be a sore winner. After all, we know that fat cat Hannity won’t be worrying over whether his health insurance will become unaffordable, as millions of others will. His only worry is probably how big his tax cut will be that those less fortunate are paying for both in money and in health.
But while Hannity and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs licked their lips over cruelty to Americans, Hannity took time out for a little more – while feigning consideration.
You see, Chrissy Teigen had the nerve to tweet about anxiety she said was caused by Donald Trump:
so fucking tired of this manically insane, incompetent president and this dumpster fire administration I'm gonna have to go on another med— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 4, 2017
that is not a joke. I think I need to either up my dosage or talk to my doctor to "see what works for me" when the world explodes.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 4, 2017
Today I had a tooth shaved down because crippling anxiety makes me grind and rock my teeth on one side. I blame trump.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 4, 2017
I also had Botox in my jaw muscle to relieve tension from constantly clinching. I was not like this before. Pay my bill, POS POTUS— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 4, 2017
Politics aside, I feel relief for the first time in many months. It really works.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) May 4, 2017
Remember how just last week Hannity was so upset about “liberal fascists” supposedly trying to silence his free speech with smears? Apparently, it's totally different when a liberal criticizes Hannity’s beloved Trump. Because after reading Teigen’s tweets, Hannity didn’t seem to mind an itsy-bitsy when Dobbs suggested she should shut up.
DOBBS: If she’s on so many meds that need adjustment, I would hope she just holistically reconsider her whole being. She’s obviously in need of something and perhaps something beyond medication.
Not only did Hannity not mind those comments, he teased about having some kind of dirt on Teigen… with a thinly veiled suggestion that he might not be so “nice” about keeping it to himself in the future.
HANNITY: Well, I have a story. I’m gonna be very nice tonight. Lou, you’ll be proud of me. I met John Legend and her at a Super Bowl event but there’s a story that I’m gonna keep to myself because I’m being very nice. I’m being very nice!
This is reminiscent of Hannity boasting about his tolerance for Stephen Colbert – while smearing him every time Hannity had a chance to bring up the subject.
Watch Hannity’s “consideration” below, from the May 4, 2017 Hannity show.
And do you think the “story” was about Teigen’s nip slip? See below for more on that, too.
1. “I’m calling on any construction worker or foreman who used to work with Hannity back in the 1980s. Share your personal story about him.”
2. “Were you a classmate of Hannity? What was he really like as a student?” Share a photo of him from high school."
3. “Attention Athens, Alabama residents. Share your personal story of Hannity when he worked at WVNN in the 1990s.”
4. “Did you date Hannity prior to his marriage in 1993? Share your personal story of him.”
5. “Why did Hannity befriend Hal at WABC radio?”
Share this story: In an interview posted March 19, 1995 in the Montgomery Advertiser newspaper, Hannocchio called homosexuality “unatural…weird.” The article was written by Dan Sewell of the Associated Press.
Did you know Rep. Mo Brooks was a fill-in for about two weeks prior to Hannocchio arriving at WVNN in Athens? That station should have never hired that amateur. That was their foolish mistake.
How can we forget Second Amendment Leah who invited the inexperience WVNN talker to a fundraiser. If our memory serves correct she was running for a seat on the school board. We believe she had a slight crush on the-then dark-haired Omen mouthpiece. She used to brag to her friends about him, and told her friends to listen to his morning show.
He has two nicknames, Hannie-Pie, The Tin Man and Grandpa. He hates those names.
Who can forget the nasty fight between the then dark-haired one, and The Kimmer? Classic story.
There are plenty of gems about Hannocchio’s interesting life that he tries to bury from the public. Many people know his dirty secrets prior to his start in radio, and early years prior to his move to Georgia.
NOTE TO CHRISSY TEIGEN
Next time the gray-haired one attacks you post the 5 on Twitter.
I remember that! I’m surprised Hannity hasn’t played it again lately, given that Baldwin has been such a thorn in Glorious Donald’s side.
The mindless obedience of the foxies to the paradigm that can be summarised as “OK for us, not-OK for them” no longer amazes me. It’s clearly a dollar-driven mutation that I trust can and will be edited out of the species americanus.
PS: On CNN yesterday, Smerconish provided yet another example of this unthinking, i.e. reflex reaction. In summary, he presented two examples of the error of generalising the behaviour of a few to a whole category (one being the eight frat boys who killed a boy during hazing; I’ve forgotten the other example). I realised that Smerconish, himself, had earlier presented Stephen Colbert’s (one person) poor taste as evidence that the left as a category is slipping into the gutter. It’s days like yesterday that I wish I could do Facebook or twitter.
