Fox News commentator and smuggest man alive Sean Hannity has a notoriously complicated relationship with factual reporting. (Here’s Politifact’s breakdown. I know, I know—FAKE NEWS!) But now the pundit’s really gone and done it, bastardizing California’s most famous off-menu hamburger and leading poor, rosy-cheeked Tucker Carlson astray.
In a clip from last night’s episode of Hannity shared by vigilant Twitter user @JordanUhl, the host suggests to Carlson—who is apparently visiting Los Angeles, although Hannity seems doubtful—that he go down to a local In-N-Out and order a burger with lettuce instead of a bun and lots of onions. “They call it ‘Animal Style,'” he says, “but you have to know the code.”
