Guest Austan Goolsbee pretty much demolished Sean Hannity's plans to spend yet another segment obsessing about his high taxes by way of pretending to care about Phil Mickelson. First, Goolsbee swatted away Hannity's claim that Mickelson pays more than 60% by noting that his accountants have said otherwise. Then, Goolsbee smacked down Hannity's contention that he pays 60% by pointing out that Hannity pays 60% “on the millionth dollar, not the first 300, 400,000.” That first $300-400,000 was obviously chump change to to the multimillionaire, self-styled “Great American.” Then Goolsbee brought up the dinner bet.
“I have a bone to pick with you, Sean,” Goolsbee said. “We made a bet on the election that you were going to take me to dinner if the president won. Well, we just had the inauguration. He won, Sean. And my friend Mario in Chicago, he watches your show. He told me you would never take a Democrat to dinner. He said it would never happen.” So Goolsbee pulled out a Nathan's hotdog nugget.
Rather than offer to take Goolsbee to dinner, Hannity said, “Show everybody the Ruth's Chris gift certificate I gave you. I sent that a month ago.” He forgot to mention that that gift was quite self-serving given that Ruth's Chris Steakhouse is a big advertiser on Hannity's radio show.
And then it was back to Mickelson.
By the way, today makes 1373 days, or 3 years, 9 months, 2 days, since Hannity promised to undergo waterboarding for charity as proof that it's not torture.
He couldn’t keep a promise if he tried.
As far as taking anyone to dinner, Hannity’s fine dinning experiences are strictly limited to Mickey D’s.
That’s where he finds his “favorite meal”.. a Big Mac, supersized (and oversalted) fries and multiple 64oz sugar drinks.
This is the meal he keeps feeding his kids. Hannity probably wants them to be full-blown Type IIs by the time their 20 years old!
$$$$ TALKS — BULLS**T WALKS!
For the record, I’m now in my fifth year of boycotting a Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant near me because the manager of this restaurant is a HUGE Faux Spews Channel fan, especially Sean KKKlannity. I’ve backed up my “LOSE FOX NEWS CHANNEL OR YOU’LL LOSE MY BUSINESS!” ultimatum.
