Sean Hannity is up in arms over Michelle Obama inviting rapper Common to come to the White House for an evening celebrating poetry on Wednesday.
On Tuesday during his show, the Fox News personality criticized the First Lady's decision because he believes that the White House is setting a bad example by allowing a "controversial" rapper to…come inside? Ha!
He's not alone either!
On Tuesday, Sarah Palin tweeted:
"Oh lovely, White House…"
So WHAT'S the big deal?
Common spit out an anti-Bush verse while performing a poem at a 2007 Def Poetry event.
Oh, the horror! What poet DIDN'T spit out an anti-Bush verse in 2007? LOLz!
We believe it's called, wait, what's that expression? It's on the tip of our tongue. It's so close! It's — oh yeah — FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
If you'd like to see Hannity ATTEMPT to read the poem in question, then proceed to yell over the commentator ATTEMPTING to offer a different point of view (and educated), check out the video above.
Are U upset that Common is appearing at the White House poetry event or is Fox News and their conservative cohorts blowing this WAY out of proportion?
