Sean Hannity’s metamorphosis into Crazier Alex Jones continued today, with the Fox host posting at his website an article in which he revealed that looking at President Obama’s newly unveiled Smithsonian portrait makes Sean’s thoughts turn to ejaculation.
So pleased was Sean with his Freudian masterpiece — and so oblivious was he to the insight it offered into his Obama obsession — that he tweeted it to his many followers:
As anyone with an IQ higher than Sean’s (meaning “just about everyone who doesn’t watch his show”) might have anticipated, Sean’s tweet and blog post were met with a tsunami of scorn, ridicule and laughter, and the hashtag #SecretSperm was soon trending.
His gaffe apparently realized, Sean subsequently deleted both his tweet and his ode to Obama’s undeniable virility. Thankfully, the Internet is an unforgiving & unforgetting place where tweets like the one above and articles like the one below live on long after the maniac who posted them has attempted to wash them from existence.
PORTRAIT PERVERSION: Obama Portrait Features ‘SECRET SPERM,’ Artist Joked About ‘Killing Whitey’
The widening scandal surrounding former President Barack Obama’s official portrait continued to swirl on Tuesday, with shocking allegations the artist included ‘secret sperm cells’ within the painting and once joked about “Killing Whitey” during an interview. Controversy surrounding Kehinde Wiley’s wildly non-traditional portrait of the Commander-in-Chief broke out within minutes of its unveiling; with industry insiders claiming the artist secretly inserted his trademark technique -concealing images of sperm within his paintings.
“His portraits initially depicted African-American men against rich textile or wallpaper backgrounds whose patterns he has likened to abstractions of sperm. Some of the subjects were famous (rap and sports stars), others not,” wrote the New York Times in 2008 More shocking were comments Wiley made in 2012 while discussing a recent work that featured a “black woman” decapitating a Caucasian woman; imagery Wiley said was based on the biblical story of Judith. “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,” he told New York Magazine.
One can only assume that Sean is now busy working on a less fetishized, more racist version of his art critique.
