Sean Hannity says beans and rice are the solution to hunger
SEAN HANNITY THINKS THE IDEA THAT AMERICANS ARE GOING TO BED HUNGRY can’t be true when you can survive on beans and rice — “If you look at some of the poorest people in the country, I went through these stats last week, most people have refrigerators and freezers and air conditioners and televisions and DVRs, or I’m sorry, DVDs, or something, and stereos and cars, they just don’t have the best and the latest, and they don’t live in the nicest neighborhoods. […] You can get things, for example, I have friends of mine that eat rice and beans all the time. Beans, protein, rice, inexpensive. It’s really — and you can make a big pot of this for a week for relatively negligible amounts of money, for your whole family and feed your family. Not the — look, you should have vegetables and fruit in there as well, but if you need to survive, you can survive off it. Um, it’s not ideal. You can get some cheap meat and throw it in there as well, for protein. There are ways to live really, really cheaply. So, uh, anyway, I don’t know where you got that from.” — Media Matters via Wonkette
So according to Hannity-logic, as long as beans and rice are available, no one goes hungry — like Hannity’s “friends” who eat that “all the time.” Hannity-logic could be easily applied to the homeless issue as well: as long as there are large appliance boxes, or quiet alleyways, no one could really be called “homeless.”Take that, Obama!
