This is wonderful.
And to be clear, I’m no fan of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show.” It was only vaguely amusing when Jon Stewart was the host. With Trevor Noah at the helm, it has gone from mildly annoying to full-on social justice claptrap, with the occasional attempts at humor.
That being said, in this age of Trump, and my own, personal awakening to the hypocrisy of both sides, I’ve found quite a few bits from the show that deserve kudos.
This latest, giving the side by side of President Trump’s personal gimp, Sean Hannity, is devastating.
No, I don’t expect Trump loyalists to see this and be moved. The stain of cultism is too deeply set in, without a really solid, well-proven mental health program implemented to reverse the hold the hay-haired mountebank has over his subjects.
For those who remain in control of their facilities, however, you’ll see this and really get the picture that those of us who have chosen to remove ourselves from partisan politics have seen since Donald Trump became the GOP nominee.
The Sean Hannity video is so full of hypocritical contradictions by the Fox News personality, I’m recommending a neck brace for those who might suffer neck damage from the wild swings, back and forth.
In the video, Hannity says he sees “parallels” between Trump and former President Reagan, who negotiated with leaders of the Soviet Union during his presidency, while other clips show him comparing Obama to former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, famous for his appeasement of Adolf Hitler.
“President Obama, catering to the world’s dictators, is literally the Neville Chamberlain of our time,” Hannity says in an old clip in the video.
But in a more recent clip while talking about Trump, Hannity says, “There’s no downside to what happened here at all … only a win as far as I’m concerned.”
“It’s not wise, it’s not in our best interest,” past-Hannity fires back. “We’re dealing with the world’s worst dictators, and we’re showing a lot of weakness.”
When a Democrat president courts the tyrants and dictators of the world: OH, NO! THIS IS HORRIBLE! HOW COULD HE DO THIS? HE HAS BETRAYED OUR NATION!
When Donald Trump courts all of our nation’s greatest geopolitical foes, including Russia, China, and a nation that is being compared to Nazi Germany (credibly): This is a great day for America, and for the whole world! Only a man of Donald Trump’s great wisdom and unmatched negotiating skills could bring about peace on earth, good will to men! He is the messiah we’ve longed for!
Ok. That last bit may be an exaggeration, but honestly, not by much, at all. No one has actually called Trump the messiah, that I’ve heard, but they absolutely have acted as if he has created a new peace in the Earth, based on absolutely nothing.
It’s chilling, to be honest. This hateful, arrogant man is being heralded as a conquering king, with men like Sean Hannity using their platform to play on the dulled senses of the masses.
Watch the full video. And yes, Sean Hannity is definitely self-owning, here.
