Obama Derangement Syndrome: No. 15,392

An addendum to the previous post… Mario Piperni I thought this was remarkably stupid. Fox News has responded to President Obama’s appearance on NBC’s Late Night with Jimmy Fallon by suggesting that Obama is somehow denigrating the office of the presidency. For instance, today on Fox & Friends, co-host Gretchen Carlson said that it’s “nutso” for Obama to go on “these… More Obama Derangement Syndrome: No. 15,392

Fox analyst: Obama’s appearance on Fallon damaged the image of the presidency
