Hannity Offers to Fly Obama to Kenya

Fox News host Sean Hannity on Tuesday said he’d pay for President Barack Obama to leave the country – on the condition that he “can’t come back.” Hinting at the “birther” conspiracy claims that plagued much of Obama’s first years in office, Hannity said, “I have an offer for the president. I will charter a plane for you and your family.” Speaking on his daily radio show Tuesday, Hannity was responding to a fake news article published in August that claimed Obama would move to Canada if Trump were to win the presidential election. “I will charter it to the country of your choice. You want to go to Canada? I’ll pay for you to go to Canada. You want to go to Kenya? I’ll pay for you to go to Kenya. Jakarta, where you went to school back in the day, you can go back there,” Hannity said. The controversial host stopped short of saying Obama was born in Kenya, but he has given support to the widely debunked theory in the past, having joined Donald Trump in demanding the release of Obama’s birth certificate in 2011. He even offered to ask for Trump’s help in getting Obama to leave the country, saying if he couldn’t afford a charter plane himself, “maybe I’ll ask Trump if I can charter his plane for Obama.”
