Fox And Friends Hosts Can’t Handle Obama’s Statement On Mass Shootings: ‘I Think He’s Talking About Trump’
The hosts of “Fox & Friends” on Tuesday appeared to cry bitter tears over Barack Obama’s response to the recent mass shootings that shocked the nation over the weekend.
In his statement, the former president implicitly called out Donald Trump’s hateful language about Latino immigrants and issued a statement linking the president to white nationalist violence.
“We should soundly reject language coming out of the mouths of any of our leaders that feeds a climate of fear and hatred or normalizes racist sentiments,” Obama said, “leaders who demonize those who don’t look like us, or suggest that other people, including immigrants, threaten our way of life, or refer to other people as sub-human, or imply that America belongs to just one certain type of people.”
The truth was too much to handle for the hosts of Trump’s favorite TV show.
“I guess he’s talking about President Trump,” said co-host Brian Kilmeade.
“You think?” joked co-host Steve Doocy.
Kilmeade was just getting started.
“I’m just wondering, did George Bush ever condemn President Obama after Sandy Hook?” he said. “Did President Bush ever come at — he had 32 mass shootings of four or more during his reign. Nobody has said President Obama is out of control, 17 so far President Trump way too high. I have news for you — mass shootings were happening before President Trump ever thought about running for president of the United States.”

Yup. The truth can be problematic if you work at Fox news.
