Remember when Sean Hannity likened Vladimir Putin to Rocky while mocking President Obama’s fitness routine? Well, now Hannity seems to think he’s Putin.
Hannity took time out from race baiting and smearing last night to show off his MMA chops – and the fact that “regular guy” Hannity worked out with Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell.
But first, Hannity had to take a swipe at Obama. “As all of you know, I’m not really a fan of President Obama,” Hannity began, “and I’m not just talking about his politics.” Once again, we saw the footage that Hannity sneered was Obama’s “really, really strenuous workout” with what Hannity thought looked like “one or two pound weights.” (Memo to Hannity: my gym has weights that size that go up to 10 pounds.)
“And I’m not sure what this little step thing is that he does here,” Hannity continued, as we saw Obama taking steps up and down with the weights. Hannity "forgot" to mention that Obama was working out while he was in Poland, at a foreign gym. So who knows how he was limited?
The last time I saw Hannity play this Obama workout video, he coupled it with footage of Putin riding bare-chested on a horse and doing martial arts. In case we missed the point, Hannity played footage of Sylvester Stallone as Rocky, working out, accompanied by the Rocky theme song.
This time, we had Hannity as Martial Arts Man.
“Alright, guess what? That’s not exactly how I roll,” Hannity boasted after he played the Obama workout clip. “In order to stay in shape, now for a couple of years, I’ve been doing mixed martial arts training and I had the great honor, distinction and pleasure of training with former UFC champion, Chuck ‘The Iceman’ Liddell. And we went one-on-one during a two-hour training session.”
Hannity then treated us to “some of the highlights.”
At least he spared us the Rocky music this time.
But with all his MMA Awesomeness, Hannity still hasn’t fulfilled his promise to undergo waterboarding for charity – or as Hannity calls it, a “dunk” – to prove it’s not torture. Hannity made that pledge on April 22, 2009. You can contact Hannity via his website or tweet him @SeanHannity and ask him why a tough guy like himself has avoided a little dunking for charity in all this time. Especially since Keith Olbermann offered $1,000 for every second Hannity endures. That should be a piece of cake for a guy like him!
You can watch Rocky, I mean Hannity, below, from last night's Hannity show.
He might be dumber than Eric Boling, if that’s humanly possible.
The Stop Hannity Express says you’re correct Bob Roberts. Hannocchio does not travel without bodyguards.
At CPAC, this cafeteria Catholic had a handful of bodyguards around him. They walked with him to the convention center and to the hotel lobby. He needs protection from the big, bad, scary conservatives.
This video is nothing but a promotion for him and his show.
Here’s a secret about Hugh’s little boy. His hair is 90 grey, and his mouth is bigger than his height.
If Hannocchio decided to have cosmetic surgery to remove the massive age lines from his face that would be newsworthy.
NOTE TO HANNITY
President Obama is laughing at your “martial arts” demo. He’s rolling on the floor laughing out loud. It’s not too often you see an old man trying to recapture his youth.
And yes Doug D., Klannity is never without bodyguards. His tales of going out to the diner or Walmart shopping with the family are about as truthful as anything his buddy O’Falafel says about his correspondent days. So no opportunity for him to use his vast MMA skills to defend himself, unless cowering behind bigger, more well-trained men is a skill he has mastered.
