Juan Williams was feisty and forthright in his advocacy this morning on Fox News’ Cashin’ In show. In a discussion where he was outnumbered four to one, Williams called out the agenda and, unlike so many Democrats on Fox, Williams didn’t pussyfoot around or try to go along to get around.
Although Cashin’ In is supposed to be part of a block of business shows, the topic was the so-called “scandals” host Eric Bolling tried to argue was overwhelming Washington and the Obama administration.
Self-styled “Capitalist Pig” Jonathan Hoenig sneered, “The attitude and the philosophy of (Obama) seems to be much more nihilistic, anti-American, rather than actually putting Americans first and leading this great country.”
Panelist Wayne Rogers called Obama “untrustworthy” and said, “He has no confidence of the people.”
Williams sounded fed up from the get-go. He told his colleagues:
What’s ridiculous is this out of control lynch mob mentality on this show. You guys shoot first, ask questions later. Why are you having a 14th investigation of Benghazi? You say, oh, too many investigations? Republicans are up to 14 on Benghazi. The fact is that …people have a right in terms of good government to have an understanding of what the problem is and try to fix the problem. And that’s what’s going on.
Rogers laughed mockingly.
Panelist Michelle Fields accused, “But these investigations are bogus Juan, they’re bogus. He doesn’t want to get to the bottom of it.”
So Williams replied, “I think you guys need some tin foil hats. You guys are into some deep conspiracy theories.”
