Fox News' Heather Childers - co-anchor of Fox & Friends First and a news anchor on America's News HQ - was just curious, she says, as she asked yesterday for her Tweeps' "thoughts" on the following question: Did Obama Campaign Threaten Chelsea Clinton's Life 2 Keep Parents Silent? Childers got her "curiosity" from a post on the right-wing birther site, GodfatherPolitics.com, which raised the same question. UPDATED. (H/T John K.)
According to the GodfatherPolitics post, Bill Clinton was threatening to go public about President Obama's birth certificate until "someone associated with the Obama campaign told him that his daughter Chelsea would be (murdered) if he opened his mouth.From that point on, the Clinton’s remained silent about Obama’s birth certificate or lack thereof."
As Business Insider noted, The tweet sparked quite a bit of Internet outrage toward Childers, but the Fox anchor kept her cool, encouraging fellowers (sic) to "participate" in the debate but refrain from namecalling. "Conversation is good," she tweeted several times.
Childers also tweeted an apology "if the article offended anyone."
But she seems to be a genuine birther:
She also tweeted yesterday to ask for "thoughts" on the Supreme Court supposedly saying that the authenticity of Obama's birth certificate is "cause for concern."
And, not surprisingly, she's a fan of birther Donald Trump, and tweeted that she's hoping he'll come on one of her shows.
Childers' tweets could well be the mother of all Cavuto marks.
The RW is gonna make life miserable for any and all folks who ain’t retarded down to a Palinista level O’ Stupid.

With all my love,
America may be circling the drain on the whole ‘freedom’ thing, but blaming it all on Obama is just wrong…
Pretty damn funny (pitiful) considering just yesterday a person who goes by
<a class="tweet-url username" href="http://twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=liz_harris">liz_harris</a> confronted Childers by saying "HeatherChilders But that is incredibly inflammatory and completely unprofessional. How can you post that and not expect a big response?" to which Childers responded " ..@liz_harris Liz I can take it. Trust me. But I Did NOT make that accusation. The question was the article headline. Conversation is good."
So Ms. “I was only asking” declares her toughness by saying that she “can take it” but then takes her tweets into hiding from the public? Double bwaaaah!
With all my love,
no longer exists.
Considering Childers herself has said that “my job here at Fox is to report on great stories”, I guess we’re to assume that she believes that this crap from the godfatherpolitics website qualifies as a “great” story?! Yeah, I guess so if, like Childers, you’re more into wacky conspiracy theories and bias opinions as opposed to the real facts and actual NEWS reporting.
Childers = just another right-wing tool.
If the Obama people pulled this after the 2008 convention, what did Obama stand to gain? The Clintons had already made public their intentions to campaign through the fall for the Democratic nominee AND those down-ballot Dems.
Furthermore, Hillary had already ripped David Shuster a brand-new bunghole after his mere COMMENT about her “pimping” Chelsea. Does anyone think, if she thought Chelsea was in any sort of physical danger, that Hillary would sit back and do nothing? (After all, according to the right-wing conspiracy theorists, Hillary was behind Vince Foster’s suicide. I can’t imagine that such a woman would sit idly by and allow her daughter’s life to be put at risk. The last thing anyone would want to do is piss off Hillary Clinton. Cersei Lannister—from “Game of Thrones”—could take lessons from an unhappy Hillary Clinton.)
So let me get this straight… then-senator Obama was the manchurian candidate for the greatest conspiracy on earth, and that conspiracy was discovered by Bill Clinton.
Not the FBI, CIA, NSA… Bill Clinton.
So, to cover it up, Obama hires Timothy Dale Johnson, a 50 year-old Target employee, to walk right into the office of Bill Gwatney (a super delegate) and murder him in front of witnesses, after talking to his staff?
He then has someone call Clinton (who’s under Secret Service protection) to shut his mouth, or he’s next?
Ok, let me stop right there. Mostly because my head hurts trying to comprehend exactly how freakin’ stupid someone would have to pass this on.
Oh, right- Fox News. Never mind…
Yes you don’t TWEET that! You say live on Fox air.
