Sean Hannity is blasting Barack Obama for what the Fox News host said was the former president’s “sick, pathetic and twisted” obsession with President Donald Trump.
On his influential Fox News program Thursday, Hannity took issue with “no-class Barack Obama” for obliquely comparing Donald Trump to Adolf Hitler during a speech at the Economic Club of Chicago earlier this week.
“The former president is obviously sick, pathetic and twisted in this obsession with President Trump. It’s kind of like everyone in the media,” Hannity raged.
“Every single chance Obama gets, whether it be here or at home, overseas, it doesn’t matter, he’s trashing, trying to undermine the president. Maybe he can’t get over the fact that his record was atrocious,” he added. “Maybe he needs to take his own advice and accept the results of the election.”
Hannity then suggested Obama should take a page from the George W. Bush playbook and just disappear gracefully.
The comments were delivered wholly without irony from a man who has made a cottage industry of focusing on dubious Hillary Clinton scandals — one of which was publicly debunked on-air by fellow Fox News host Shepard Smith.
Though no Clinton has occupied the White House for 17 years, Hannity’s drumbeat of Clinton news has been so constant that he once even accidentally referred to Hillary Clinton on-air as “President Clinton.”
