For eight years, the Obama family came under constant fire from Republicans and the right-wing media during their time in the White House. After just over a month of having the Obamas out of office, one right-wing commentator seems to have forgotten about his onslaught of criticism.

Hannity on Obama

Even before former President Barack Obama was elected as the first African-American commander in chief, the right-wing new media piled on in opposition. From debunked claims that he wasn't born in the United States, to attacking nearly all of his policy proposals, Obama was the top political target for conservatives over the better part of the last decade.

One of the leading voices against Obama was the Fox News Channel, in particular host Sean Hannity. Hannity is one of the most conservative commentators on the network, who also hosts a right-wing talk radio program during the week. A hard-line supporter of current President Donald Trump, Hannity led the charge of opposition to Obama until the day he left office. Fast forward to present day and the Fox News host doesn't seem to recall his previous attacks, as reported by the Huffington Post on March 3.

During his radio show on Thursday, Sean Hannity seemed to have a moment of apparent amnesia as he couldn't remember any conservative being unfairly negative about the Obama family.

"Nobody picked on Malia and Sasha, no conservative that I know of," Hannity said. "Nobody picked on Michelle Obama except for the stupid statements, ‘for the first time in my adult life I’m proud of my country," he continued, before adding, " If she’s going to say something like that then she deserves to be criticized."

Documented history

While Sean Hannity claims that neither he, nor any other conservative, attacked the Obama family, it's well-documented that it took place.

Just last year during the 2016 presidential election, the Fox News host offered to fly the entire family out of the country as long as they vowed never to return to the United States. Cheap shots about the former First Lady and their daughters are also on record, as the partisan divide in the country continues.
