Twitter Wrecks Sean Hannity Over Blog Post on Obama Portrait ‘Secret Sperm’: ‘InfoWars-Grade Stuff’
This was inevitable.
Sean Hannity bewildered online political observers on Tuesday when his blog pushed a mind-breaking allegation that Barack Obama‘s presidential portrait contains “secret sperm.”
The picture of the 44th president has drawn plenty of reactions, but the Fox host cranked it up to 11 with his blog’s take on the portrait’s artist Kehinde Wiley. The post’s primary focus was on the “industry insiders” who say that Wiley’s “trademark technique” involves “sperm within his paintings,” and Obama’s portrait got the same treatment.
