I should not be shocked or dismayed at anything that the Fox News Network says about the POTUS. However I am in fact quite disgusted with Fox News’ constant “scary Black man meme“.
Did these people forget that George W. Bush invited Osama Bin Laden’s son, Omar Bin Laden to White House ? Not to mention a male hooker and even some Taliban members, right before 9/11.
Referring to a meeting in the Oval Office between President Barack Obama and Gabonese President Ali Bongo Ondimba, Fox Business’ Eric Bolling said, “It’s not first time he’s had a hoodlum in the hizzouse” while displaying a picture of the rapper Common.
“Our president’s sitting with one of Africa’s most wanted,” Bolling, the host of Follow the Money, said later in the segment. “It’s not the first time he’s had a hood in the big crib.”
Also during the segment, Human Events editor Jason Mattera added that “we shouldn’t be surprised that Barack Obama is going to get chummy with a reprehensible dictator” because he has a “pattern of yucking it up” with dictators and “likes to defecate on American allies.”
In May, Bolling was accused of racism for tweeting, “Obama chugging 40′s in IRE while tornadoes ravage MO.”
