The election is right around the corner and folks are taking sides. The media has gotten involved and they are showing less tact than the actual candidates. They have a lot to say about the campaign, but none more than …you know who!
Fox and Friends, hosted by Gretchen Carlson, Steve Doocy, and Brian Kilmeade, is back in the center of controversy over their signature controversial style of interviewing and interpreting the news. This time they went gutter by attempting to attack Obama’s remarks about small businesses last week. His words, in full context, were:
“If you were successful, somebody along the line gave you some help … Somebody helped to create this unbelievable American system that we have that allowed you to thrive. Somebody invested in roads and bridges. If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen.”
But the Republicans ran with the “you didn’t build that” part of his statement and have been attacking him ever since. Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade went as so low to prove their case against the president that he interviewed two little girls with a lemonade stand about their small business.
Clara and Eliza Sutton are four and seven, respectively. Kilmeade goes to the four-year old with his penetrating questions about the President’s policies.
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 —
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.
Fox are we really ready to go this low to make a point? Because all you proved is that you’re low lives that will do anything to distort the truth. The lack of moral judgment it took to approve and conduct such an interview ought to alert everyone in America to how sinister you really are.
