In his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference this morning, Fox News’ Sean Hannity had some downright creepy things to say about the “young, good-looking crowd:”
I can look out in the crowd, I kinda have Fox X-ray vision, and I can see that some of you women, you don’t even know it yet, but you’re pregnant. It’s not your fault. It’s not his fault.
The joke—if that’s what it was—bombed, drawing nervous laughter and groans from the crowd. The Twitter reaction was swift and perplexed:
Hannity has xray vision can tell that some of the women in here are pregnant? IDK it was supposed to be a joke? #CPAC2015

Hannity joke at #CPAC lands w a thud: “I have Fox xray vision & I can see that some of you women are pregnant, though you don’t know it yet”

Really subtle @seanhannity: if I was stupid, like a liberal, …. Also, “I can see it some of you women are pregnant you don’t know it yet”

Other CPAC attendees were apparently unfazed by Hannity’s claim that he could seen into women’s uteruses.
@seanhannity What a wonderful speech you gave before CPAC today! Wish to Heaven you’d consider running for the GOP Presidential nomination.
