Lobster-Eating Food Stamp Recipient Refuses Hannity's Job Help

Welfare Surfer's Saga Continues

As seen on Hannity

The saga of a surfing, lobster-eating food stamp recipient continued on "Hannity" as the 29-year-old refused Sean's assistance in finding a paying job.

You may remember Jason Greenslate from his interview with Bill O'Reilly's producer Jesse Watters. Greenslate was first captured on camera by Fox News while purchasing lobster with taxpayer-funded food stamps.

Wearing sunglasses and smoking an electronic cigarette on set, Greenslate told Hannity that he hasn't worked in a year for pay, but that he considers his band practice his job. 

Hannity pointed out that Greenslate rides around in a Cadillac Escalade and frequents strip clubs, all while receiving government assistance and not working at a job that actually pays. 

When Hannity asked Greenslate who he thinks pays for his food stamps and free health care, Greenslate said, "Government, taxes, us, the people."

"Not you, because you're not paying taxes," Hannity responded.

Hannity went on to point out that nearly 60 cents out of every working Californian's dollar goes to taxes. "You're taking their money and you just don't seem to care," Hannity said.

"Who says I don't care?" Greenslate asked, adding that he was "thankful."

"I want to thank the United States of America, and the situation — the way things are set up," said Greenslate.

Hannity concluded by asking Greenslate, "If I could get you a job that would pay you $80,000 a year driving a truck in North Dakota, would you take it?" 

"No," Greenslate replied.
