I have to admit that I’ve never seen Fox and Friends other than the occasional clip that pops up on a site to illustrate just how incredibly gob-smacking that crew can be. Apparently Steve Doocy is the driver of this particular clown car, and he’s echoing the sentiment of Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) who suspects dark motives behind the Iranian nuclear agreement and its timing.
Fox News host Steve Doocy and the network’s “objective” news anchor Bret Baier agreed on Monday that President Barack Obama’s timing was questionable in announcing a deal with Iran that broke three decades of gridlock on preventing the country from obtaining nuclear weapons.
“Don’t you think it’s a little curious?” Doocy asked Baier during a Monday Fox & Friends segment. “Some of my friends were talking over the weekend, isn’t that curious timing? Out of nowhere, you know, in the midst of Obamacare not unrolling correctly, the president’s poll numbers never been lower then, look, [Secretary of State] John Kerry pulls a rabbit out of his hat and changes the subject.”
“Yes,” Baier agreed after a pause. “I mean, you’re right. It is questionable timing as far as, you know, how much this is sucking up the oxygen in the room and Obamacare was taking a lot of front-page space. However, they had been working on the deal for while and it did come together at this time. I mean, they unrolled it at this point.”
“It’s handy for them,” Doocy concluded.
In the real world, these folks would realize that for that to be true — that the White House arranged the agreement just to take the pressure off Obamacare — the president would have had to get the Grand Ayatollah of Iran to go along with it. They’d also have to have had the French, Chinese, and Russians on board, too.
If the president really had that kind of persuasive power, don’t you think he would have used it on his IT crew to get the website working rather than waste it on a country we’ve basically shunned for more than three decades?
Hate makes people say really stupid shit.
