Despite Fox hyped rumors to the contrary, the kingdom of Jordan had clearly stated that their king would be personally involved in airstrikes on ISIS targets. But that didn't stop Eric Bolling from spreading the lie that he did.
We need to go back to February 5th, when the curvy couch potatoes on Fox & Friends were just fit to burstin over rumors that King Abdullah would be flying bombing missions over ISIS targets. Doocy showed a old photo of the King dressed in flight gear. While admitting that the photo was a year old, Doocy added that "he is a pilot."
The vaunted Fox & Friends fact checkers must have done some checking because, in a subsequent segment, Doocy reported that the king hadn't, to date, participated in any airstrikes. But ever the optimist, Doocy said that "he may be going forward" and "what a statement that would make." Doocy didn't mention that according to Al Arabiya, Abdullah is not a fighter pilot but head of the Jordanian Air Force.
Flash forward to Tuesday's (Feb. 10th) Algonquin Round Table otherwise known as Fox & Friends. In commenting on Obama's interview with VOX, Fox walls of genius Steve Doocy and Eric Bolling quibbled about Obama's terminology used to describe the recent terrorist attack on the kosher deli in Paris. Bolling contrasted the President with King Abdullah of Jordan who has become the object of cult worship on Fox News. Fanboy Bolling said that, unlike the cowardly, Muslim appeasing President, King Abdullah "lept into action and even led airstrikes" after ISIS killed the Jordanian pilot."
Abdullah fanboy Bolling is either misinformed or is deliberately lying in order to push a propaganda narrative; i.e. Abdullah kicks ass and Obama is a sniveling coward.
I guess, as Seinfeld's George Costanza character said, "it's not a lie if you believe it."
From the Fox News Insider summary of the Fox & Friends segment.
There should have been a “not” after “would”.
