Hannity Unloads on ‘Hack’ Jon Stewart: ‘He’s Kind of Obsessed’ with Me

Sean Hannity went after Jon Stewart Tuesday night for mocking him over his support of Cliven Bundy and hypocrisy therewith. Hannity mused that Stewart is “kind of obsessed” with him, and called the late night comic the “chief apologist for the Obama administration.”

Hannity insisted his main problem is with government overreach in Nevada, turning the tables on Stewart to wonder where he stands on Bundy, wildly speculating what Stewart’s true feelings on the situation could be. And beyond that, Hannity wondered, “Did Jon Stewart ask Barack Obama about his friendship [with] this unapologetic domestic terrorist Bill Ayers?”

Hannity called Stewart a “comedic hack” and randomly brought up the inclusion of Cat Stevens (who supported a fatwa on Salman Rushdie) at the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear hosted by Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

National Review‘s Kevin Williamson called Stewart a “half-bright late night television comedian” with a “vulgar and extensive audience,” telling Hannity, “I’m sort of embarrassed with the country and myself that we have to sit here and talk about Jon Stewart.”
