Sean Hannity rather predictably has turned his show into an outlet to push the right-wing talking point that the government shutdown we’re all under now is the work of President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and not that of the Republicans who were elected to Congress telling their voters they would come and shut the government down. Last night on his show, Hannity had Democratic Congressman Luis Gutierrez on his show to get the “Democratic Reaction” to the government shutdown, which is a Fox News host’s way of saying, “I’m going to have a token liberal on my show, not let him get a word in edge-wise and lie about any and everything I need to in order to make a point.”
Apparently no one gave that script to Rep. Gutierrez though because what he delivered to Hannity was nothing short of a smackdown. The hard-right wing host was not too thrilled when the congressman corrected the lies Sean was telling about the alleged “exception” to Obamacare that the right-wing has started telling all their voters congressional members got. “Sean, I Am so sorry that you are so misinformed,” Gutierrez said.
