Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday removed an article from his radio show's website that claimed the official portrait of former President Barack Obama contained secret images of sperm. "Controversy surrounding Kehinde Wiley's wildly non-traditional portrait of the Commander-in-Chief broke out within minutes of its unveiling," the article, written by "Hannity staff," asserted, "with industry insiders claiming the artist secretly inserted his trademark technique -concealing images of sperm within his paintings." Hours after the article's deletion, Hannity said in a statement provided to TPM by a Fox News representative: "Earlier today my web staff posted content that was not reviewed by me before publication. It does not reflect my voice and message and, therefore, I had it taken down." Hannity's post also included a close-up crop of the portrait, presumably showing the suspected sperm.

"Forensic examination shows that the sperm wasn't hidden but actually on the painting, and was found to be that of a local Naples resident who spends most of his days blogging on political websites and clipping articles from The Atlantic.

Sometimes it only takes one jerk to see sperm.

Look, I don't think y'all are getting this.

The Hannity Sperm Portrait nonsense was started THIS MORNING by racist 4Chan trolls, w/ the express purpose of "getting it in the news."

The post calls the Obamas "king and queen n****r."

Hannity was writing it up by early afternoon. twitter.com ...

They can't stop jackboot stepping on their white supremacist dicks.

Hey, that is sperm in that painting! Sure, you have to stare it until you go cross-eyed, but it pops right out after the headache goes away, and suddenly you can see the sperm with total clarity, as if you where suddenly shot through the forehead with a diamond....

The painting is pretty awful.

But I think Hannity just admitted to why he was so angry at Obama for his entire 8 years.

Hannity doesn't want to go back, man. Give him a chance, Obama, and he won't go back.

A one pump chump? Ouch.

I guess I'd find Hillary hot under those circumstances too.

I haven't seen the portrait of Barack Obama. I have seen Michelle Obama's portrait and was disappointed that it was only a vague resemblance of her. It seemed almost generic. As a former first lady she deserves better IMO.

This is just a silly thought but maybe try clicking the link for the article before posting.

I've seen the portrait of Michelle Obama. It's not a good likeness of her nor is it particularly flattering IMO. She deserves better.

What a perv.

Sperm portrait?

Barack's hands look bad in his and Michele looks nothing like hers.

For her tough, it's impossible to get enough canvass for that rear and those thighs. Plus, her angry scowl face is hard to capture. She's got great arms though...

"I haven't seen the portrait of Barack Obama."

It's in the article dummy.

"Barack's hands look bad in his..."

They are so big! They are obviously too big! They are like three times the size of Trump's hands.

No wonder Trump is so scared of him.

Did you notice that after Melanie shook hands with Barack that she swatted away Donnies hand.

4chan also found that the leaf background is cut and pasted/stamped.

To be fair to Rightofcenter, he said he could recognize the "taste" anywhere, not an image of it per se.

Fair and Accurate.

Hannity & crew are in need of counseling.

The Obama's got you losers to talk about art. That may be his biggest miracle yet.

Good to know Hannity is obesessing over Obama's sperm.

I have no problem with the painting because most will see it as a joke an UN-presidential in the long run. What I do have a problem with is the artist is a racist who has made racist paintings he should have none better but that doesn't matter to the left but let a KKK artist paint anyone and the ---- would hit the fan why is the left so hypocritical?

I see that now that they've combined the Hannity Fan Club with the Klan meeting, you have more time to post.
