So when four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya, following an attack on our embassy, Republicans spent the next four years acting as if the plague had come to America and the Obama administration had callously ignored it while brushing off the deaths as no big deal.

But even with the Whataboutism Olympics in full swing these days, I have to admit, this exchange between Sean Hannity and
defenestrated whale sphincter former Fox News host Bill O’Reilly is pretty jarring.
