So, Sean Hannity promised an “explosive” and “exclusive” video of President Obama speaking out for Harvard Law Professor Derrick Bell. It was supposed to finally be the “vetting” Obama never got in the campaign. It also turned out to be pretty lame — and a made-for-The-Daily-Show moment.
“Tonight, in a Daily Show “super top double exclusive +1,” I will reveal to the world who Sean Hannity really is,” Stewart promised. “Where he comes from. I will reveal to you the real Sean Hannity. The Sean Hannity you don’t know, because you don’t watch his show … ever.”
But really, a 20-year-old video of Barack Obama used to show how radical he will be as president is sort of a waste of time, Stewart said. He’s already president, after all. And if you’re looking for damaging footage, there’s plenty available. In HD.
