Fox News blowhard Sean Hannity took umbrage with some remarks made by New York state governor Andrew Cuomo that Hannity interpreted to mean that the governor wanted extreme conservatives to leave the state. We have seen a spate of rich people recently whining about how people are being mean to them and they think it is all very unfair. Tom Perkins is one of the most extreme of the lot, saying that criticisms of the wealthy are similar to Nazi Germany but he is by no means alone.
Hannity worked himself into quite a lather about this attack and threatened to up and leave the state and go elsewhere, as if anyone cared. But people like that always have an inflated sense of their own importance. It must be because they are surrounded by servile types who pander to their self-esteem.
But The Daily Show decided that Hannity’s comments were worth mocking.
