Hannity Tries to Mock Biden’s ‘Despacito’ Moment, Owns Self Instead
Fox News host Sean Hannity tried multiple times on Wednesday to ridicule Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for supposedly pandering to Hispanic voters by playing the pop smash “Despacito,” only to undercut his own attempts with unforced errors each time.
Amid concerns that Biden is hemorrhaging support among Hispanic voters, especially in Florida, the former vice president made his first campaign appearance in the Sunshine State on Tuesday. Marking the start of Hispanic Heritage Month, Biden kicked off his speech by firing up “Despacito” on his phone, even dancing along to it a bit.
The moment quickly went viral, with critics quickly pouncing and accusing the presidential hopeful of blatantly pandering to Hispanic voters. Biden supporters, meanwhile, fired back that Luis Fonsi, the 2017 hit’s singer and writer, introduced Biden at the event and even encouraged the candidate to “dance a little bit” after playing the song.
During Hannity’s radio program on Wednesday, first highlighted by former Daily Beast video editor Timothy Burke, the Fox News host—an informal adviser and confidant of President Donald Trump—teased an upcoming segment about the viral moment. Unfortunately, he got one little thing wrong.
