Rather than hold Trump to his promise to pivot, Hannity is defending Trump’s shtick.
This is an honest question: Does Sean Hannity want Hillary Clinton to be president? I don’t get it.
And, to borrow a trope from President Obama, let me be clear about being clear for clarity’s sake: I’m not referring to the entirely valid, 100 percent correct, indisputably sound argument that it was batsh*t crazy to nominate this guy in the first place. What’s done is done and Sean Hannity will no doubt one day receive the Golden Hair Helmet for his Stakhanovite effort to get Donald Trump the nomination. Let no one forget his yeoman service in the cause to blow up the Republican party and empty a septic tank into the ground water of the conservative movement.
The Presidential Lie
But, again, that is not what I have in mind.
For more than a year Trump and his choir assured everyone that he would indeed “pivot” and become more presidential.
As he told Hannity: “At the right time, I will be so presidential that you’ll call me and you’ll say, ‘Donald, you have to stop that, it’s too much.’”
“As I get closer and closer to the goal, it’s going to get different,” he told Greta Van Susteren in February. “I will be changing very rapidly. I’m very capable of changing to anything I want to change to.”Read the rest of Jonah Goldbergs op-ed HERE.
