Andrea Tantaros and her “fair and balanced” panel of all-conservatives and all-Obama haters analyzed President Obama’s speech with just the kind of mean-spirited shallowness you’d expect.
After President Obama’s remarks about taking executive action on gun control, Outnumbered played a clip of Obama crying as he spoke of victims of gun violence.
From Raw Story:
Tantaros said that she didn’t buy the emotion because “he would have spoken out a long time ago.”
“This is how many years? Almost eight years, he’s almost at the end of his term,” she continued. “And you haven’t heard him go to Chicago and really speak out about this issue.”
“So, I would check that podium for like a raw onion or some No More Tears,” Tantaros quipped. “It’s not really believable. And the award goes to… we are in awards season.”
You can hear Meghan McCain snickering off camera as "Punch" Tantaros spoke.
It just so happens that mocking President Obama’s tears was right in line with how other conservatives reacted, as Media Matters noted.
