Charles Payne opened a discussion about President Obama urging more openness to taking in Syrian refugees with the “fair and balanced” question, “Where’s he getting this wrong?”
The guest was former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who as a presidential candidate, couldn’t even qualify for the main debates.
As B-roll footage showed refugees getting violent with police in Europe (so Payne didn’t have to come right out and say this is what Obama might bring here), Jindal rambled:
JINDAL: This is, I believe, one more way that President Obama creates the conditions to allow Donald Trump to do well, and people and voters and the American people see a president that’s not willing to defend them, not willing to say the words radical “Islamic terrorism” that is so politically correct, I think one of the reasons they’re flocking to a candidate like Donald Trump, and I’m not a fan of Donald Trump’s, but this is one of the reasons that I think Donald Trump is doing so well is because people see how absurd the left has become.
In fact, an actual expert on the subject has recently explained why President Obama has good reasons for saying that welcoming Syrian refugees can make us safer.
But instead of challenging Jindal, Payne prodded him to validate Trump's extreme stance: “Would you go further now and saying maybe there’s some credence in stopping all Muslims from coming into America?”
For the record, Jindal thought there should be some medium ground between Obama and Trump but we never got a lot of details because he was too busy bashing the Obama administration.
Payne could be heard saying, “right” and “yeah,” as Jindal attacked.
