President Obama has been blamed for just about everything there is. Despite rebuilding a crippled economy, the GOP tried to blame him for causing it. Believe it or not, there are also some people out there who actually even blame Obama for 9/11. He was an Illinois state Senator at the time. During the last election, 15 percent of very conservative voters said that Mitt Romney was the one who killed Osama bin Laden.
But today’s decision on what to blame Obama for really takes the cake. Elizabeth Hasselbeck, who isn’t long for Fox News, is now blaming President Obama for Donald Trump. On Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends,” Hasselbeck and her co-host Brian Kilmeade discussed the latest insanity from Donald Trump where he wants to ban all Muslims, including American Muslims, from coming into the United States. Kilmeade began
Looking at Muslims coming in our country with a different analysis as opposed to Italians and Norwegians. I think in many ways that people might say ‘Wait, that might make a little bit more sense because, especially if you’re coming from a war-torn nation, you should have a different look as opposed to somebody who is not.’
Hasselbeck totally agreed saying its
unprecedented that religion would be a defining moment there, for someone to enter or not into this country. And that’s what I think so many people have an issue with. We’re in a tough situation right now. What do you think about Donald Trump’s plan to not let any Muslims in? I don’t think many are agreeing with him this morning.
But wait… there’s more
Some will [agree with Trump], but some will also question, ‘Why don’t we just fix the actual system in place and Why don’t we have a leader in place that would actually make us feel safe about terrorists so we didn’t have to go to the extremes?’
Somehow if Obama could be more racist and xenophobic, like Trump, our country would be safe and Trump wouldn’t have to be racist and xenophobic anymore. Problem solved! At least, that’s what Kilmeade said
Elisabeth, that’s a great point! Because I think people saw the speech Sunday and they said, ‘Wait a second, who’s got our back?’ He spent most of the speech saying what we’re not going to do to fight them and what we shouldn’t do when they’re here.
Seriously? Just stop talking. Just when you thought Fox News couldn’t look more foolish, they go this route. What’s next? Blaming Obama for the Lindburg baby? Oh, and did you hear, WWII was Obama’s fault too. It doesn’t matter that he wasn’t born yet, Fox News will still blame it on him. What are they going to do when Obama isn’t around anymore, just shift it to the next person? Won’t that confuse the imbeciles?
