Like little stars.
Anthony Weiner and Sean Hannity are an odd couple that only a television producer could love, something they proved with aplomb Wednesday night on Hannity’s Fox News show with a segment that began awkwardly before quickly descending into an even more uncomfortable yelling match.
Things got off to a rocky start, with Weiner refusing to engage with Hannity’s first question — “What the hell were you thinking?” — and insisting he was on the show not to talk about himself but to talk about the middle class. The two then spent a good chunk of time going in circles, with Hannity repeatedly trying to get Weiner to comment on his many sex scandals, and with Weiner repeatedly dodging the question and attempting to redirect the conversation to policy.
Eventually they did get to policy … sort of. When Hannity brought up the debt ceiling, Weiner interjected with questions of his own, asking the Fox News host again and again whether he supported raising the debt ceiling. Hannity ultimately granted that the debt ceiling would have to be raised, but not before complaining about Weiner’s commandeering the interview. “What am I — a potted plant?” Weiner responded.
That’s about when things started to get real. “You’re auditioning for MSNBC! You’re auditioning! You want Chris Matthews’ job! I can tell! You want to ask the questions! You want to be Chris Matthews! You never shut up like Chris Matthews, either,” Hannity said. Weiner insisted he had no such plans, but said if he did he’d rather be on Fox, where there are “lower standards.” Hannity, by this point less than amused, shot back, “You want me to talk about low standards? You really wanna go there?”
Watch the whole clash here:
Like little stars.
World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
