Recommended by Ricochet Members Created with Sketch. TV Idea: Hannity & Trump Driving Around New York City

 

Hannity and Trump are both native-New Yorkers and they could drive around showing the damage from the riots, telling stories: “I got my first kiss outside that Bloomingdale’s.” (Or whatever.) Producers could insert some Hannity/Trump family photos, and to really highlight the destruction, do side-by-sides of pictures of NYC from last year and today. It would also underline one of the president’s campaign themes: “You won’t be safe in Joe Biden’s America!”

I’d watch it.

    Great idea! I’d watch it too. “Commander-in-Chief in Cars not drinking the Kool-Aid” a la Seinfeld’s TV show title.

    I like it! Before and after images are very compelling:

    The one thing I like about your picture is it appears a Smart car has been trashed-so no real loss! If I were the owner (and had full insurance coverage) I’d thank the vandals and apply the insurance windfall towards a real automobile. The one use of a smart car I can think of is for an owner of a full sized pickup in lieu of a spare tire (Just load it on the pickup bed and away you go).

    Just a collection of photos of burned-out coffee shops and torched smart cars like the one above should give a lot of them a little twinge.

    “Wait – they’re burning things I like? Not cool!”

    Addi,

    I like your idea but I’d do it differently. Let Trump do a voice-over on a full 1-minute spot, “…and this is New York before and after…and this is Chicago before and after…and this is Minneapolis before and after…etc.”. Fill up the entire minute with the worst shots, then at the end give Trump a super tag line that will stick in the mind and can be used on bumper stickers.

    Make the Dems own the wanton destruction. Americans will know what to do.

    Regards,

    Jim

    Or we put animatronic Hannity and Trump in a self-driving armored SUV. It will take a crowd of at least 50 to overturn it. When they do, a mercury switch triggers a 1-kiloton nuclear device in the cargo area.

    ct,

    I like your spirit ct. However, this is a bit impractical. After all, you’d probably take out the McDonalds and then where would Yoo get his McRib. However, I would consider bringing back some of the past’s traditional ways of dealing with psychotic destructive idiots.

    1.) The wonderful old American tar & feathering.

    2.) The glorious formal British Royal Navy keelhauling.

    3.) The festive African tribal stake them down and let the army ants get at them.

    Such punishments may neither fit the crime nor solve the problem but it would make us all feel so much better.

    Regards,

    Jim

    The Secret Service called. They aren’t happy with this idea.

    I’ll bet there are 100,00 New York City hard hats who would gladly escort the motorcade.
