Sean Hannity’s Tasteless Sears Mannequin Photo at Jerusalem’s Wailing Wall

Last month, Fox News Channel’s paint-by-numbers screecher Sean Hannity made an ass of himself posing with Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) and a cartoonishly oversized machine gun at the Mexico border. You know, to intimidate the influx of tween girls from Central America entering the U.S.

You may or may not know that Hannity is continuing his good will tour of the world by visiting Israel. Not that there’s anything wrong with that in and of itself, but while in Jerusalem, Hannity stopped at the Western Wall, also known as the Wailing Wall — one of Israel’s most sacred landmarks. Surrounding the ancient Temple Mount in Old Jerusalem, the Wall is a place of deep spirituality and reverence where Jews are obligated to outwardly mourn for the destruction of the Temple, while also wedging slips of paper containing prayers into cracks and seams between the massive stones forming it.

Here are some typical scenes from the Wailing Wall:

And here’s Sean Hannity’s photo:

For two days only, all casual men’s tops and slacks are buy-one-get-one-free at Joseph A. Bank! This is nearly the exact same pose he used on the border patrol gunboat with Rick Perry.

Nice display of reverence there, Hannity, with your shit-eating smirk. If they ever find the Ark of the Covenant, perhaps you could fill it with cool water and splash around in it with your arm-floaties. Photo-ops like this are better reserved for the “Jaws: The Ride” attraction at Universal Studios — not the Wailing Wall. Yeesh.
