Liberal Fox News contributor Tamara N. Holder, appearing Tuesday night on “Hannity,” called Republicans “fat asses.”
Ms. Holder and host Sean Hannity were discussing New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg’s “Big Gulp ban” when the contributor said that “most Republicans are fat asses” and that “fat Republicans who drive through Wal-Mart in their buggies” are the reason policies such as “Obamacare” have to be adopted to curb the cost of health care.
“You’re calling me a fat ass?” Mr. Hannity asked. “I’ve been called a yellow journalist, immoral, a liar and now a fat ass. What a night this is.”
Radio producer Bernard McGuirk then lit up a cigarette on camera. Mr. Hannity proceeded to devour a doughnut. Ms. Holder gulped soda from a 2-liter bottle.
“What happens is the Republicans overeat and they overindulge in everything,” Ms. Holder said.
“And Democrats don’t overeat?” Mr. Hannity shot back with a mouthful of doughnut.
“Why do we have Obamacare? Because the fat Republicans who drive through Wal-Mart in their buggies,” Ms. Holder explained.
