Annals of Asshattery

Can you guess where Fox News came down on the story about former Baltimore Raven Ray Rice’s assault on his then-fiance which was lighting up all the media yesterday?

Well, if you went out to the loony bin and said, “Blame Obama!” you win.

I shit you not.

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros wasted no time during Monday’s episode of “Outnumbered” directing anger at President Obama and the Democrats over a video reportedly showing NFL star Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee in an elevator.

“I wanna know, where is the President on this one?” Tantaros asked, after a brief throat-clearing about the NFL’s obligation to react to the tape.

“My question is — and not to bring it back to politics but — this is a White House that seems to bring up a ‘war on women’ every other week. A White House that’s very concerned about the NFL, concussions, etc., prescription drugs in locker rooms,” she said.

So the house organ for the Republican Party, the same party that fought against the renewal of the Violence Against Women Act, is tut-tutting because President Obama didn’t immediately have an Oval Office speech on this.  Seriously?
