For those of you out there who don’t think Tinder is sleazy enough, there’s good news in the world of online dating: According to The Wrap, Fox News pundit Sean Hannity wants to create a Tinder-like dating app strictly for conservatives. (If you think “OkCupid’s Nice Guys” are a trip, just wait until you get a load of these clowns.) And you know those GOP types are into some wild shit, so if you’re a liberal Democrat who thinks that sites like Fetlife and Collarspace have lost their edge in recent years, you may want to consider swiping right…way right.
“I actually love the idea,” Hannity tells the International Business Times. This isn’t the Fox News personality’s first foray into hook-up culture: Hannity previously ran Hannidate, a website where “people of like conservative minds can come together to meet.” Hannidate, surprisingly enough, featured a section for men seeking men; while Hannity is against same-sex marriage, he apparently leans more libertarian on gay relationships. (You can fool around all you want, just don’t ask for any financial benefits.) Hannidate closed down several years ago for undisclosed legal reasons, The Wrap reports.
Hannity does fancy himself a regular Mr. Lonelyhearts, pressuring “cute couples” he encounters in public who may be living in sin to finally commit to being miserable with each other forever. “I’m like, ‘how long you been dating?’” Hannity says, recounting a time he coerced a couple into a loveless marriage. “Okay, why haven’t you asked her? And I put him under the gun. Then I say, ‘why don’t you do it now?’” One can assume that Hannity is being figurative when he says he put this young man “under the gun,” but it would be his God-given right to be quite literal about it if he so desired. Josh Duggar is presumably already regretting making a profile.
