Floating a baseless conspiracy theory designed to smear Chelsea Clinton and her mother is just part of The O’Reilly Factor’s mission of “looking out for you,” apparently.
Subbing for Bill O’Reilly, host Eric Bolling discussed the news that Chelsea Clinton is pregnant with her second child – Fox News style: by using what should have been good news to make Hillary Clinton look bad.
“Lovely news for the family,” guest Dana Perino began innocently. “Chelsea Clinton just announced she’s pregnant with her second child. It will be born next summer so Hillary Clinton has this image: she’s the tough grandma, and she’s got a new haircut for 2016 and she’s the one to beat.” She added suggestively that it was “the narrative” the Clinton team wants.
Bolling played the bad cop. “Was that timed? Was that timed out? Did they do the math?” he asked.
“I would never suggest such a thing,” Perino said. Her facial expression showed that she was being sarcastic.
“Did they go 40 weeks back?” Bolling pressed.
“Well, she’s not going to be born in December,” Perino said.
“Dana, the DNC timed those Democratic debates for the NFL weekends and Star Wars, who knows?” Bolling added. “They’re good at timing on the left”
“They’ve got that down,” Perino agreed.
“They’ve got that down,” Bolling repeated.
Watch how Fox covers good news for a Democratic presidential candidate below, from the December 21 The O’Reilly Factor.
I see, according to his Wiki entry, he is married and has one son (hmm, for a 50+ year-old Catholic, that sounds pretty damn suspicious to me; but I digress . . . ) so he should have some basic understanding of how pregnancy happens and how much luck is involved.
All the “timing” in the world can NOT lead to what I suppose he thinks is “pregnancy on demand.”
Sure she did, Boring — just as Bristol Palin timed hers to help her mother.
With the exceptions that 1) Clinton needs no help, and 2) no amount of help from Bristol could help the Tundra Princess . . .
