Hannity: Poor People Are Doing Fine Because There Is Enough Rice And Beans To Go Around

News

Oh, the radio! Fox News doesn't let Sean Hannity speak lies to the powerless to quite the degree that he would like to, so, on his radio program on Monday, the reigning drunk jock of the airwaves took a call from a man who was trying to explain why he wasn't convinced he should vote for Mitt Romney. WELL WHY NOT? Said the caller: "I need for you to ask him, when was the last time he went to bed or woke up hungry? You see, this is the part that most Americans can associate with." (Rude interruptions, disbelief from Hannity.) "See, it's kind of hard for them to associate with somebody that has never, ever had any financial problems in his life," the caller continued. Hannity's response to this is that he himself, Hannity, because this is his show, goddammit, has "never [gone] to bed hungry in my life -- ever. Most Americans haven't."


The caller defends his claim by saying that "your staff" is always talking about the latest poverty statistics. Hannity responds that yes, yes, he knows, there are 47 million people in poverty in the States right now, but that doesn't mean they're going hungry. It really does not. He knows. Who has the radio show and who doesn't?

If you look at some of the poorest people in the country, I went through these stats last week, most people have refrigerators and freezers and air conditioners and televisions and DVRs, or I'm sorry, DVDs, or something, and stereos and cars, they just don't have the best and the latest, and they don't live in the nicest neighborhoods.

Hannity spewed on a for a few more seconds, deciding that poor people in America are doing fine, they could do better, but they can't complain. Then he asks the caller:

Do you ever go shopping? I go shopping sometimes. I hate it, but I do it. Do you ever go?

At which point the caller, John, can be heard hanging up.

Hello? John? John? Are you there? I hear you. I guess not.

But HE JUST KEEPS TALKING! For the 11 other people listening. And here is his excellent advice!

You can get things, for example, I have friends of mine that eat rice and beans all the time. Beans, protein, rice, inexpensive. It's really -- and you can make a big pot of this for a week for relatively negligible amounts of money, for your whole family and feed your family. Not the -- look, you should have vegetables and fruit in there as well, but if you need to survive, you can survive off it. Um, it's not ideal. You can get some cheap meat and throw it in there as well, for protein. There are ways to live really, really cheaply. So, uh, anyway, I don't know where you got that from.

Here is the whole audio, if you dare:

So forget what you've heard everywhere, America! Stupid organic vegetables suck and are stupid, it is important that you be able to TiVo Pregnant In Heels and rent Mark Wahlberg movies. And for survival, try gas station burritos, which have some added carbohydrates in addition to the great protein of beans and cheapness of rice! [Media Matters]

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
