The Republican party and all of their minions know they will not be winning the White House. There will not be a need to carve Donald Trump’s name into a plaque to be placed in the Oval Office. In recognizing this inevitability the Republicans have instead taken to playing on their old and reliable talking points of fear and division about Democrats. Sean Hannity, one of the loudest idiots at Fox News, said some deplorably racist things on his radio program about President Barack Obama.
Hannity, who is a longtime friend of Donald Trump and is said to have consulted on Trump’s campaign, described a hallucination he had about Trump winning the presidency and what he would do to President Obama if Trump won. Hannity dribbled the following stupidity out of his mouth:
I will charter Donald Trump’s plane if he’ll let me, and I will charter it to the country of your choice. You want to go to Canada? I’ll pay for you to go to Canada. You want to go to Kenya? I’ll pay for you to go to Kenya. Jakarta, where you went to school back in the day, you can go back there. Anywhere you want to go. I’m gonna — I’ll put the finest food, caviar, champagne, you name it. I have one stipulation: you can’t come back. That’s fair.
The comments by Hannity are as implausible as they are ignorant. The entire commentary was mere lip service to make Hannity appear tough of influential. The fact is if Hannity had any clout at all, beyond that of stoking fears of race and division as a snake-oil salesman he wouldn’t threaten. He’d act. Like most other conservatives, he is an empty sack with no ability to follow through.
