Predictably, those who disagree with Oblackman's policies (did we mention he's one of...them) took issue with the part of the quote that they could carve out and cut off from the rest of what the president said. Not really news so far, since every time the president even burps someone accuses him of wanting to send Hoveround Americans to FEMA camps where they will be forced to gay marry Saul Alinsky if they want to avoid the death panel. And Fox News has always been particularly adept at this strategy, often throwing ethics, scruples and any passing regard for the truth to the four winds for what can only be described as a untethered roller coaster ride through Pat Buchanan's fever dreams.
But this time, they've really outdone themselves.
Kilmeade: Clara, how do you feel about the President saying that you needed help to start this business. And just speak from — speak from within. All right, you know what? Let’s switch over to —"Friends and family." Yeah and maybe the public school teacher who taught you how to spell lemonade too? It doesn't even matter that the criticisms in any way, you know, criticize anymore. If anything, this is more about the president being right when he said it takes a village to make a success.
Younger sister Eliza yawns. Clara begins to speak.
Kilmeade: Why don’t you answer that one?
Clara, age 7: I would say that’s rude because we worked very hard to build this business. But we did have help.
Kilmeade: And your help came from?
Clara, age 7: Our help came from our investors, our dad and stepmom, along with other friends and family.
It's as if whenever the president says anything, words have to come out of some people's mouths that are supposed to explain why he's wrong, but they don't, and the people saying them don't seem to know it, or to care if they do.
Take a 4 and a 7 year old, coach them up on what to say, then put them on national TV to "criticize" the president's quote which you took way out of context anyway. Yeah, that's a good lesson to teach kids about how a democracy works.
Come on Fox News. Just use the N word and get it over with.
