Your reminder, if you needed one, that Sean Hannity is a glorious idiot.

Alright, so last night news broke that President Obstruction wanted to fire Robert Mueller back in June but when White House counsel Dan McGahn threatened to quit if he went through with it, President (Grab Them By the) Pussy backed down. While the Liar-in-Chief dismissed it as — what else — “fake news,” his lawyer issued a less definitive statement: “We decline to comment out of respect for the Office of the Special Counsel and its process.”


This is obviously another bit of evidence that this asshole is obstructing justice, and so it’s not surprising that Fox News doesn’t want anything to do with it. But you have to see how Sean Hannity handled the story because it is the funniest fucking thing you’ll see all day:


Hannity then tried to defend his decision to call Fake News on this not fake story with this tweet:

Ok, but some questions:

  1. But isn’t this your face?
  2. Are you saying that The New York Times made you pose like this?
  3. How did they do that?
  4. Why did you add the green?
  5. Why would you do that?
  6. No, seriously, I need to know: why would you make your face green?
  7. Is it Jolly Green Giant cosplay?
  8. Is this, as one tweeter theorized, a Shrek meme?
  9. Is everything OK, Sean?
  10. Are you having a breakdown or is this more like a stroke situation?

As for how the State Media handled the story this morning, it went exactly the way you think it would: “Fake news but also you don’t care.” 

Bless their hearts.

Speaking of reboots, TV by the Numbers breaks down the chances for other reboots. (But I think those chances for A Different World are waaaaay too optimistic.)

The Walking Dead has released key art and a synopsis of where we will be when the series returns on February 25. Meanwhile, some fans are trying to convince themselves that there is a chance Carl might survive. Oh, babies, no.

Here’s an argument for ending Suits. It’s an interesting question because USA seems to be at a crossroads itself, trying to become more of a prestige network. It had success with The Sinner, but their more recent foray into serious drama, Damnation, was just canceled (see below). They may need to keep the reasonably successful Suits around for a season or two longer until they can figure out who they want to be moving forward.

This is a long piece on my upcoming nightmare, Bachelor Winter Games, and the challenge of having international contestants. SEND BOX WINE.
