Sean Hannity’s Clueless Question About Biden Gets Turned Right Back At Donald Trump
Fox News host Sean Hannity tried out a new line of attack against President Joe Biden, but his critics on Twitter were quick to turn it back on Donald Trump.
Hannity, a staunch supporter of the former president, threw out a rhetorical question during his interview on Wednesday night with Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) at a town hall event in Miami on the crisis in Cuba.
“What is the Biden doctrine?” Hannity asked. “To kiss the ass of every single solitary dictator in the world?”
But as users on social media were quick to point out, Trump spent much of his time in office alienating traditional U.S. allies and embracing dictators and strongman leaders. Trump said that he and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un “fell in love,” and at one point he broke protocol and saluted a North Korean general. Trump also publicly backed Russian President Vladimir Putin over the U.S. intelligence community and did nothing when Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s bodyguards assaulted American protesters in Washington. Erdoğan later claimed Trump apologized to him over the incident, which the White House denied.
Twitter users were quick to deliver some reminders:
Oh for fuck’s sake.
Is there nothing these people won’t exploit?
Trump exchanged love letters with Kim Jung Un.
Kissed Putin’s ass.
And really, did nothing but demagogue re Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua…but yeah, let’s pretend it’s Biden who loves dictators. https://t.co/26qJixjVnU

The Turkish president's goons literally beat people in the streets of DC, blocks from the White House, and Trump did nothing. https://t.co/3N1u79UrX0

Don't bother to look up Hannity's comments when Trump saluted a North Korean general, said he was "in love" with a North Korean dictator, and got rode so hard by Vladimir Putin that the Secret Service damn near had to fit him for a saddle. https://t.co/e7FFQdMRH2

I'm racking my brain to think of a single dictator whose derriere Trump didn't kiss https://t.co/wrTVjOBTeZ

The knowing projection on stuff like this is too sad to even take seriously or respond to. https://t.co/UMHSPtdMja
