Smirking Punch puppet of a man Sean Hannity recently gave an interview with Playboy magazine, a dying softcore porn brand that in just 50 years has gone from interviewing people like Malcolm X to interviewing people like Sean Hannity.
Among other nuggets contained in the Q&A is the admission that Hannity only wears shitty Donald Trump brand ties on his TV show and that he may run for office, if that's what Jesus plans for him. The best part, however, is certainly the moment when Hannity is caught forgetting all the craven bullshit he's spouted about the president over the years in an effort to stoke America's xenophobia, Islamophobia, and racism.
PLAYBOY: Trump was one of the most vocal skeptics of Obama’s American citizenship. You’ve also said Obama grew up in Kenya. Do you regret saying that now?
HANNITY: But he did grow up in Kenya, and he told The New York Times that he went to a school there and one of the most beautiful things on the planet is Islamic prayer at sunset.
PLAYBOY: Are you fueling the myth that Obama’s a Muslim from Africa by saying that?
HANNITY: I never fueled the myth. How do you come up with this stuff? He did go to a Muslim school. He writes about it in his own book.
PLAYBOY: He did not grow up in Kenya.
HANNITY: He went to a Muslim school in Indonesia, or wherever it was, Kenya. I forget. Now you’ve got me. I think it was Indonesia. I’m trying to remember his biography. It’s going back so long. He admits he went to a Muslim school. It’s on his audiobook, if you want a tape of it—you can hear him say it himself.
Kenya, Indoensia, what's the fucking difference when the nation's full of a bunch of people who aren't white?
For the record, President Obama lived in Indonesia from 1967 to 1971, when he was a little boy. He never grew up in Kenya.
