There are so many amazing things about this insane clip from America’s chief conspiracy hairpiece. The lack of understanding about how technology works, screaming “HILLARY CLINTON!!” every time he runs into trouble—all culminating with the man who is a de facto senior adviser to the president telling those wrapped up in the investigation around the president to destroy evidence—a crime that carries up to 20 years in prison.
Hannity went on to clarify that this was “bad advice,” which is probably the most honest thing he's ever said, but in true Hannity fashion, he still used his next sentence to encourage targets of the investigation to destroy evidence “because Hillary.”
This whole mess is a perfect example of how pathetic the life of a troll like Sean Hannity is. Without Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, he has nothing and is nothing. His entire livelihood depends on their existence, so he can make up insane conspiracy theories and use his complete and utter lunacy as justification for his side to commit crimes. If Hillary, Obama, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi all took off on a rocketship to Mars tomorrow, the entire right-wing media ecosystem would implode overnight. These people hate Hillary Clinton more than they love anything else in their miserable lives. I'll leave you with a conspiracy theory advanced by one of my favorite follows on Twitter that gets less conspiratorial with each unhinged rant by Sean Hannity.
