Fox’s Outnumbered cohosts ignored how Donald Trump’s name has been used to racially taunt students while they smeared Emory University students who found Trump graffiti on their campus. “If you’re afraid of the name Trump, you’re either an illegal alien or you’re a sissy. Either way, you shouldn’t be on college campuses,” Jesse Watters sneered. UPDATED
The “fair and balanced” group of five cohosts sharing the same opinion ignored reports by The Washington Post and Mediaite of students using Trump's name to mock and insult students of color. Even though two of the cohosts were African American, including Fox faux liberal and Trumpkin, Eboni Williams.
They also ignored how the Trump "support" was not in the nature of political signs or buttons but graffitti, some of which was written on steps leading into a building that houses gathering places for Latino and black students, as The Washington Post reported. The Post also noted that the graffiti occurred several weeks after the state's primary on March 1.
Cohost Andrea “Punch” Tantaros scornfully said about the Emory students, “I think they’re pretty wimpy. It’s a generation of wimps.”
But Watters took it a step beyond acceptable when he smirked, “If college students don’t like Trump, that’s a good thing. I mean, you kind of want the enemy to fear you.”
Not only did no one object, cohost Rachel Campos-Duffy said, “I suppose.”
Nobody seemed to notice that Watters had just made the case for the Emory students.
Watch this disgusting display of hate mongering below, from the March 24 Outnumbered.
3/26/16 UPDATE: As reader Warp Resident noted in our comments section, Snopes did a pretty thorough investigation of this incident - and the sloppy media reporting about it - and found the situation was nothing like Fox made it out to be. Obviously, not even the "liberal" Eboni Williams bothered to check the facts before joining with the conservatives.
Wow, Jess — I wonder which is the GOP establishment?
Oh, right- Fox News. The meassure of a monster there is the darkness of their skin. Unless they consider themselves cursed for being dark.
