Megyn Kelly interviewed Brad Steinle, the brother of Kathryn Steinle, the murder victim whose death Fox can’t seem to exploit enough. Kelly’s face and voice were full of sympathy for Brad, but her questions were almost all designed to use him to advance her own anti-Obama agenda.
Before she introduced Brad Steinle, Kelly made the interview about Obama:
KELLY: The White House again denies a Kelly File request to address the death of a young woman gunned down by an illegal immigrant.
…This despite the fact that President Obama has personally addressed the deaths of Trayvon Martin, in Florida; Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Missouri; and Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland.
The black faces appeared on the screen, saving Kelly the bother of having to directly say what she meant: Obama favors black thugs over innocent white women. It’s the same message she conveyed last week and the same message Fox’s Jesse Watters conveyed on The Five.
And yet it’s funny how “independent” Kelly "forgot" how President Obama addressed the deaths of those white children at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, his remarks in Tucson at the memorial service for the (white) victims in the Gabby Giffords shooting or when he spoke out about the (white) victims of the shooting in Aurora, Colorado.
When Kelly finally got around to the interview, nearly every question was designed to either repeat that dog whistle or the “Obama favors illegal Mexicans over law-abiding white people” dog whistle.
As soon as Steinle finished telling about what happened, at about four minutes into the 14-minute interview (which included Kelly’s one-minute-plus diatribe against Obama beforehand), Kelly started her politicization. Below are her questions:
“How did you come to find out it was an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times who took her life?”
“I know you’re not a political man and you don’t come from a political family, you weren’t giving thought to sanctuary cities and so on prior to this event. What is your position on San Francisco’s sanctuary city policy now?”
As if Kelly wouldn’t have known in advance that Steinle would speak against it. Which, of course, he did. While Kelly put on her thoughtful, listening face.
“Do you feel that the system failed her?”
“What do you make of the sheriff who, even in the wake of her murder, is standing by this policy?”
“We talked about the Department of Justice going into these other cities in the wake of other deaths. Has anybody from the administration contacted you? …Not the White House? Not the president? Not the vice president? …How about the mayor or the sheriff? Have they reached out to you or your family? “
“Do you feel like Kate’s murder is being ignored at some level by federal officials?”
Kelly closed the discussion by asking Brad what he will miss most about his sister. After his touching comments, Kelly said, “The way you talk about her, you bring her to us and you do her memory a great service.”
Which is more than one can say about Kelly.
Watch it below, from the July 13 The Kelly File.
In case that went over your head, it was directed at you, Chuck (the latest in a line of sock-puppet trolls who never seem to stick around for more than a single article).
Did YOU invite any of those victims’ families on your show to condemn white racists who’d obviously fueled the young man’s beliefs? Have you invited any of them to condemn the shoddy way that a man who should NEVER have been able to buy (or even possess) a gun managed to get one?
Oh, wait. Those people would all be Black. And they wouldn’t really have any reason to fuel your Obama-bashing agenda. So, of course, you haven’t had them on your show.
Sorry, Megyn. Your agenda (much like your roots) is showing.
Unfortunately for the grieving brother, he was just the perfect sort of tool for her to use.
It was disgraceful but predictable.
I was thinking earlier last night, after O’Loofah opened with a Steinle story for the sixth consecutive night, that this is just another Natalie Holloway. Attractive white girl murdered, America should mourn. Kick in that the act was committed by an illegal immigrant and a felon to boot, well, this is taylor-made for Faux. They will beat this story to death like CNN did with the missing Malaysian jet.
