Sean Hannity Viewers Smash Their Keurig Coffee Makers To Support An Accused Pedophile

They’re smashing them to support an accused pedophile.

Over the past two years, Fox News host Sean Hannity has become a mouthpiece for the Trump White House. He’s so in the tank for the president, he still supports the Trump-backed Alabama senatorial candidate Judge Roy Moore.

Four women have recently come forward saying Moore pursued them sexually when they were between the ages of 14 and 18 and Moore was in his 30s.

During Hannity’s radio show, he remarked to show producer Lynda McLaughlin that Moore’s encounter with a 14-year-old girl was “consensual.”

Hannity’s comment implied that a teenage girl can consent to statutory rape and that pedophilia is somehow more acceptable if the victim gives consent.


Hannity’s handling of the Moore scandal prompted four companies, including coffee maker Keurig, to pull their advertising from his show on Fox News. Somehow, Keurig’s stance against pedophilia caused outrage among many of Hannity’s viewers who decided to smash their Keurigs and post the videos to social media under #BoycottKeurig and #IStandWithHannity.


While the actions of Hannity’s viewers are morally confusing — and that’s putting it nicely — the act of destroying a Keurig coffee maker is clearly a great thing for the environment. Compared with a normal coffee maker, which uses a biodegradable filter for an entire pot of coffee, Keurigs use single-serving plastic K-Cups that aren’t biodegradable.

In 2013, near the height of the Keurig craze, Keurig Green Mountain produced 8.3 billion K-Cups — enough to circle the Earth 10.5 times. By 2015, over 60 billion K-Cups had gone into landfills.

The environmental damage caused by K-Cups pushed the city of Hamburg, Germany, to become the first city in the world to ban Keurigs in all government offices. Fortunately, the Keurig’s popularity has began to decline. Last year, the company announced it had sold 7% fewer machines during the 2015 holiday season than in the previous year, signaling a potential end to the single-serving trend. While Hannity’s audience is clearly on the wrong side of the issue, by destroying their Keurigs, they’re actually helping the environment — and that’s something conservatives haven’t supported for a long time.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
