Fox News host Sean Hannity took things to a bizarre level on Tuesday. He set up cameras outside Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s home to taunt him to come outside and answer questions about the former vice-president’s son, Hunter. The New York Post story that was supposed to be a bombshell October surprise looks suspicious as hell. Even Hannity admitted that “And now Fox News cannot independently verify the photograph,” but he kept on.
Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani reportedly first approached Fox News with the trove of alleged emails he claims came from Hunter Biden’s laptop. Still, the network passed on the story over credibility concerns, but that didn’t stop Hannity.
And we’re just wondering why Hannity is focused on this story rather than the bombshell report showing that Trump’s tax records show he has pursued expansive business projects in China for years and even maintains an unreported Chinese bank account. While Trump maintains that Biden will be soft on China, the president paid more in taxes in China than he did in the U.S.
But, OK, Sean is now stalking Biden’s home, and it’s weird.
“I know it’s 9 p.m. Eastern, Joe, but if you are awake, we have a camera right outside of your house right now,” Hannity said. “We will be more than happy to hear you out.”
“Joe, if this is a really big smear campaign as you suggested over the weekend when you got one hard question that wasn’t about your milkshake—you can come outside, that’s Joe Biden’s house, his bunker is inside, and the outside light is on,” Hannity continued. “Come out and tell us why. Now we’re all ears; you have a full hour of the show. It’s all yours.”
Meanwhile, according to Mediaite, “the lack of authentication of Hunter Biden’s alleged laptop, combined with established concerns about Giuliani as a reliable source and his desire for unvetted publication, led the network’s news division to pass.” Even Fox News passed on the “bombshell” Rudy Giuliani story.
Hannity reminds me of that clingy guy I didn’t want to go out with, so he sat in front of my home each night in his pickup truck. Hey, at least he wasn’t surveilling my home like Hannity is doing with Biden. Well, my stalker finally realized after months that I’m just not into him, so maybe Hannity will get that Biden isn’t into him, either.
