Hannity Blames Obama For Russian Meddling [VIDEO]

Oh so predictable:

“Where the hell was the Obama administration?” Hannity asked. “What did they do then to stop this?” Hannity pointed to a report from NBC News about how they “didn’t do more” to stop Russia because they thought Hillary Clinton was going to win the 2016 election.

“So in other words, it sounds like the Obama administration––they were complicit in this!” Hannity exclaimed. “They dropped the ball!”

He ripped Obama, saying “maybe he didn’t take the Russian threat seriously,” and called him out for mocking Mitt Romney when he warned that Russia was the biggest geopolitical threat during a debate back in 2012.

“Given what we know now, President Obama and the top members of his administration owe you an explanation. Hillary owes you an explanation,” Hannity continued. “What this did is a dereliction of duty. They fail to stop a major national security threat.”

    Some days I want to scream. Some days I want to laugh. Most of the time in America nowadays, though, I just feel like crying.

      I hear ya, but try to laugh at them and make THEM cry.

      I hear ya’, although it’s kinda the opposite with me.

    Trump is to teflon as Obama is to crazy glue.

    Everything trump does is a dereliction of his presidential duty. Suck it GOP, this is not Obama’s fault.

    “Where was Obama when Trump was screwing the playboy bunny? Where was he when he was fucking the porn star? Why didn’t he stop the national nightmare! Obama is worse than a cheater. He’s Obama!”

      He was busy screwing up the palin kids.

  • Devon Rodriguez

    Proving that Fox News/Hannity is doing exactly what the Russians were trying to do: Sow distrust and confuse and divide America.

    • Todd20036

      Yeah, but at this point, no one else is being convinced.

    • glass

      Fox news is the official propaganda state TV of the American Communist Soviet party.

    • jeffg166

      He’s on the payroll too!

      • Yalma Cuder-Zicci

        I really believe that. So is Alex Jones whose stock-in-trade is sowing paranoia, distrust and rage, and so many of the evangelical leaders who proclaim that Trump is Christ returned.

        • FAEN

          Me thinks Jones is out for himeself

          • Kissmagrits

            Starting with David Koresh and Waco in the nineties, Alex Jones discovered how lucrative the agitprop business could be, especially if you introduce a catalog of miracle cures and survival shit to sell the gullible.

        • jeffg166

          Donnie thinks he’s Christ returned. Just a hotter version who gets all the babes.

        • kelven

          I believe we will find out soon enough your observations are literal and not metaphorical. I believe Sean in particular has a large role in this which is why he is becoming so hysterical with each news drop. Can’t wait to see his treasonous ass blubbering in court. “B-b-b-but we were just trying to make America great again!”

    • Uncle Mark

      And YET we hear nothing from Lumpy demanding some punishment of the Russians, or even enforcing the sanctions against them (as voted for by 95+% of Congress.). Why isn’t Lumpy demanding that Prez Puppet do something to prevent Russian interference in the 2018 election.

      Time to start accusing Lumpy of collusion, too !!

    • MonochromeMouse

      No way in hell hannity isn’t on the Russian’s payroll. Just another republican puppet with putin’s hand up his ass.

    • Paula Key

      Mueller put Hannity on your list – has he a Swiss bank account?

  • Todd20036

    “Oh shit! The people who were treasonous were from my own party! And the top traitor was a white male! Fuck! I got nothing. Maybe I can drag Obama in to this, but only my audience will buy this crap.

    “Oh well. It’s not like I’m running for office, and if the idiots who pay my salary continue to watch, well, it’s not like I’m going to lose my health care, or my retirement.”

  • Boreal

    Actually this is one of my beefs with President Obama, that he didn’t do more to stop this and say fuck you to Miss mcconnell.


    • Chucktech

      Abso-fucking-lutely. Obama should have screamed to high heaven over Russian meddling.

  • Bambino

    Russian sanctions law was signed August 2nd 2017 by the bone spur cadet. He has yet to implement the sanctions. Clear indication of collusion.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      There is really no defense to that is there.

    • JackFknTwist

      He has not yet condemned the interference exposed in the indictments.
      Putin owns Trump/turd.

    • jeffg166

      Lock him up!

    • Bambino

      Clearly a mouthful of Trump secret sperms swimming in there.

      • lattebud

        And stool

    • glass

      Hannity was paid $130,000 not to discuss what happened in this picture.

    • Ore Carmi


  • DaddyRay

    So now Hannity is conceding that Russia manipulated our election to help Trump?

    • Chucktech

      Thanks, Obama…

  • Mark Née Fuzz

    Sure, Sean. It’s also Obama’s fault that Trump’s morning stool is greasy and smells bad.

    • lattebud

      Did Ivanka tell you that?

  • Devon Rodriguez
    • Bambino

      Charles Darwin has some explaining to do about evolution when it comes to the like of Hannity.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    Good god, how could his parents have failed so miserably?

    Or maybe they actually did drop him on his head to cure him and it didn’t take.

    • Bambino

      Or he was into some heavy shit during the college years and never recover.

    • Christopher

      I’d be fine if they tried it again.

      Couldn’t hurt!

  • CanuckDon

    Fucking blowhard as usual but what I love about this is that he inadvertently is turning Trump’s base around from thinking there was nothing wrong if Russia meddled in the election as long as Hillary didn’t win.

  • Ragnar Lothbrok

    LOL the orange dumbfuck ASKED Russia to help.
    …ON Camera !

    • Bambino

      He openly asked for Russia help so there is no collusion. /s

    • Chucktech

      Now, now, when Trump said, on CAMERA, “Hey Russia, if you’re listening…” he couldn’t possibly have known if Russia was, in fact, listening…

  • Michael R
  • April

    Since it is all Obama’s fault Trump should produce his tax returns. I mean there shouldn’t be any loans/debts listed to Russian banks.

  • LeeCMH
  • Christopher
    • LeeCMH

      One sobering thought… Star Trek was predicated on the notion humankind survives itself.

  • Bambino

    So he admitted the current administration was installed by Russia? So Hillary Clinton is the rightful POTUS? It’s like watching a snake swallowing itself.

    • Uncle Mark

      I can hear the circular logic already.
      1. “Because Hillary paid for the Dossier and the evidence was manufactured by Russia; therefore Russia wanted Hillary to win.”
      2. Proof of Russian interference in the 2016 election against Hillary
      3. “Why didn’t Obama do anything to stop this?”
      4. “Obama was incompetent”
      5. “Obama was in cahoots with Russia obviously in allowing them to interfere.”

    • perversatile
  • Longpole

    “Dereliction of duty?” That is what you and your network were doing by focusing on Benghazi 24/7.

  • JackFknTwist

    One thing is beyond doubt, no matter what the FBI and /or Trump/turd say :
    The Russians did influence the outcome of the election.
    Does anyone believe that the Russians would have put so many resources into this vast conspiracy without getting results?
    It is obvious that Trump/turd benefited by the efforts exposed in these indictments.
    It now remains to be seen what other advantages Trump/turd and his family and his campaign gained by association with, and by cultivation of, Putin and his henchmen.
    But it is beyond doubt that the legitimacy of the election has been compromised.

    The conclusion I believe is that Trump/turd is not now and never has been a legitimate President. He is in the White House as a Russian puppet, he was elected by their efforts and is beholden to them.
    By such intimacy with the Russians, by encouraging them and meeting them, Trump/turd has proved himself a traitor.
    “Russia if you’re listening please track the 30,000 missing emails of Hillary”…..Trump/turd.

    There is no way that Trump/turd would pass ‘extreme vetting’. He has not even condemned the Russians, even with all these indictments of Russian conspiracies, Trump/turd says nothing to criticize them. He only tries to exonerate himself.
    Oh yes, Putin (ex head of KGB and Trump pussy-grabber) is pals with Trump/turd ….what could possibly go wrong?

    Putin owns Trump.

    Trump needs to be arrested now
    ……and/or subpoenaed to appear before a Grand Jury………..no one, not Charles I, nor Robespierre has ever been above the reach of justice and the law.

    We don’t have to get hung up on the word ‘collusion’………. There is enough evidence there now about his fraternization with a hostile foreign power, his encouragement of Russian active efforts to subvert the election ( e.g. – Don jr’s meetings, “I’d love that dirt on Hillary”.) to cancel his security clearance and to go further with his impeachment.

    And all of this is so dangerous not only for US electoral system but for the whole basis of democracy in the USA. And you have a President wallowing in the fruits of that subversion.

    And you have Nunes & GOP Inc. making every effort to subvert Mueller and the entire investigation of all this Russian interference and he and the whole GOP must pay the price for their treachery.

    • Michael White

      You are so right. But NOTHING will happen as long as the GOP control congress and SCOTUS. More than ever we have to get these traitors out of office

    • Friday’s_cat

      The Russians gave the car teetering on the cliff a nudge but the ‘mainstream’ print and broadcast news media pushed it there. Go back to the 1990s and breathless news media parroting of republican lies, smears, and distortions of anything Clinton. If Russian seeds of CDS sprouted it’s because they landed on fertile ground prepared by the NYT, WAPO, ABC, CBS, and NBC News Media hacks.

      • JackFknTwist

        That’s nonsense.
        You are looking to spread the blame with your vague assertions.

        The truth is Trump has not even condemned the Russian interference.

        So WTF is he going to do next ? Turn his attacks on the FBI ?

        Trump is owned by Putin, whether because of Kompromat or because of all the money laundering.

        And you come out with your partisan bull shit about the ‘main stream media’. It is the failure of Fox aficionados like you to condemn the treacherous Trump/Putin alliance that has allowed the Russians to infiltrate the media, the social platforms and to subvert the democratic electoral process.

        And what the fuc are you talking about with your : ” if Russian seeds…..”

        Get a grip on the facts.
        Or maybe you are now saying that the indictments are all ‘fake news’.
        Spare me your BS.

  • Tulle Christensen

    I just strained my neck trying to watch the sudden U-turn of going from there was no Russian meddling to the Russian meddling was a “thanks Obama” moment

    • Bambino

      Seanny just tell his viewers it’s Obama’s fault we got an illegitimate president sitting in the White House.

      • CanuckDon

        Good thing Fox viewers can’t put two and two together or they might think something’s wrong with all of this.

        • Tulle Christensen

          sure they can

          2 and 2 together …. 22

  • Rebecca Gardner

    Hannity is completely insane. Why is he even mentioned here?

    • Makoto

      I’ve got relatives who swear he’s right on everything, so I kind of appreciate having the heads up on what they’ll be spouting off sometime soon. It’s kind of like reading about what the megachurch pastors are spouting off about – I agree, it’s nuts, but still good to know.

    • LeeCMH

      The whole idea was to keep the election meddling secret from the Democrats.

    • Chucktech

      So? Obama did nothing and Fox and Trump still trash him, to say the least.

  • Friday

    Why didn’t Obama, oh, have the FBI monitor suspects, like… those that were in cahoots with the Trump campaign like Faux News claimed was somehow Watergate-like, while the Republicans complained any mention of, never mind attempts to stop, Russian interference would be the cheating like you acused Obama of at the time?

    If only there’d been some kind of *sanctions* like those Trump illegally is refusing to institute.

    “top White House officials gathered key lawmakers—leadership from the

    Sweet Fake Jesus on a Popsicle Stick, the comments section is just too laughable to be taken seriously; which is why they are also so incredibly worrisome. #Cult45 is real and scary as fuck. Hannity, ever the dutiful lap dog and blow boy, is doing his best to purposely sow discord and division. Even the most casual of observers can see what’s happening, it’s so glaring. In other countries, his machinations would be criminal or at the very least worthy of some penalty, but in the U.S., the News has the right to lie; and therein lies the one salient point that separates adult nations from childish ones. Over half the nation wants the truth, but the other side needs the lies so as to hold on to power. Sorry, not feeling terribly charitable this morning, possibly cranky old man disease is kicking in again. #NoJournalisticStandards #TheVirtueOfLying

    Obama wanted to make the meddling public, but needed to do so in a bipartisan way or not at all… so Republicans refused to participate.

        No he couldn’t. Can you imagine what the Republican noise machine would have done had Obama declared, late in the election cycle, that Russians were meddling in the election in Trump’s favor…?!?!

This HAD to be bipartisan or not at all, and the Republicans refused to bring it forward while simultaneously making political hay with illegally-hacked DNC emails.

    Complicity and dropping the ball are not the same thing. So sick of all this intentionally manipulative rhetoric. The Trump team WORKED with the Russians to influence the elections–THAT’S complicity.

    Did the Obama administration drop the ball? If they had the capacity to notice what was going on, then yes, they did. I’ve been disappointed in the Democrats’ failure to properly address electoral security and manipulation for a very, very long time. [Insecure electronic machines, voter suppression, gerrymandering… and much more.]

  • Gianni

    Dear Sean, Why do you think all those sanctions were placed on Russia? It was because Obama quietly let the Russians know that we were aware of their meddling and they’d best stop it. The Russians knew that if the hated Hillary won, she’d not only keep the sanctions in place, but likely add to them. Hence, the influential Russian efforts to get Dear Leader elected. And you, not being a completely stupid man, know that all those Russian contacts with Trump campaign operatives were for literally one purpose only: to get the sanctions lifted which Dear Leader’s campaign aids promised the Russians would be done once Dear Leader was in office. That was the only reason Pooty Poot didn’t respond in kind when Obama had all those Russian operatives ejected from the country and seized those properties from the Russians. Such maneuvers by either country have automatically been reciprocal (Donnie’s favorite word – reee-ssssip-rocal) throughout the relationship, but not this one time. You’re as much a lying phony as that fucker in the White House.
