I’m sure Sean Hannity had himself a private little cry and a nap after his interview fail with Colin Powell yesterday:
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell tonight threw a wet blanket on Sean Hannity’s longtime obsession with attacking President Obama over Reverend Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers.
During an interview with Powell on his Fox News show, Hannity said that he finds Obama to be “one of the most divisive figures in — that I’ve witnessed in politics today.”
Powell responded: “[T]hat’s a term that’s being used rather freely. I don’t think he’s that divisive an issue.” Powell then asked, “What could have been more divisive than, when President Obama was inaugurated, for a number of Republicans, friends of mine, and a number of commentators to say, ‘We’re going to destroy him. We’re going to destroy him’?”
Hannity replied: “I was one of his harshest critics. I wasn’t out to destroy him.” Hannity also asserted: “Well, I was critical about Bill Ayers and Reverend Wright.” Powell responded: “I don’t know Bill Ayers from the man in the moon. Bill Ayers and Reverend Wright are just passing things through [Obama’s] life.” Hannity then said that Obama spent “20 years” in Wright’s church, to which Powell responded: “Well, so?”
WHY ARE YOU SO DANG MEAN, COLIN POWELL?
