Fox News host Andrea Tantaros found a new way to ratchet up hate and divisiveness today as she openly sided with Israel over her own country – and pretended she was "just asking" if the Obama administration is anti-Semitic.
Today, on Outnumbered, the hosts attacked Secretary of State John Kerry for criticizing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for trying to undermine U.S. negotiations with Iran.
Siding with a foreign country against the U.S. is par for the course on Fox News (so long as it’s a Democrat in the White House). But Tantaros took the anti-American hate mongering a step further:
I question, does the White House really want to stop (Iran) from building the bomb or are they enabling them? Do they feel morally-relative Obama – who believes in American exceptionalism, just like Greek exceptionalism, just like Iranian exceptionalism?
…I think it is time that we asked the question. I’m dead serious about this: Is this White House anti-Semitic? Are they?
Cohost Kennedy, to her credit, seemed to object, as did the #OneLuckyGuy for the show, former CIA agent Mike Baker.
“That’s a pretty heavy charge,” Kennedy said, as Baker groaned. "I think there’s bad blood between Netanyahu and Obama, absolutely. …But to say that the president…”
“I’m not saying that,” Tantaros insisted. “I’m asking the question. Because look at the hostility towards Israel. We have never seen an administration so coordinated in their attacks.” She complained that Obama advisor Susan Rice had called Netanyahu “destructive.” “It’s just a question,” Tantaros repeated. “There’s a number of things that they have done to be openly hostile to Israel.”
Openly hostile? This is from the woman who asked her radio show listeners to “do me a favor” and punch an Obama supporter “in the face.” Who has said President Obama “doesn’t believe in border security” as she expressed a desire to impeach him. Who mocked hungry Americans on the eve of Thanksgiving, saying she’d “look fabulous” if she lived on a food stamp diet.
Is “Punch” Tantaros anti-American? I’m just asking.
Watch it below, from today’s Outnumbered.
Perhaps Tantaros would be a bit more accurate if she pinned the anti-Semitism somewhere other than the Obama Admin. Maybe she should look to likely GOP candidate, Jeb “I’m not like my Daddy or Brother, really I’m not!” Bush, who named James Baker as one of his advisors? Yes, the same James Baker who famously said, “Fuck the Jews; they didn’t vote for us anyway”.
This Tantaros twit excels when it comes to hating on Obama and spreading around the right-wing bullish!t. Perhaps the IQ level on “Outnumbered” would go up a bit if she were locked away in the janitor’s closet before the cameras started rolling? Oh, oh, I’m not saying that! I’m asking the question!
’Cause, nothing says “anti-Semitic White House”, quite like celebrating Passover in it:
Does anyone think Tantaros really gives a crap about Israel or anti-Semitism if it weren’t a way to trash talk Obama? Does anyone think Tantaros knows what anti-Semitism really is? Does anyone else think Tantaros has lipstick-smudged posters of Hitler lining her bedroom walls? Just asking.
