Fun Times With The Idiots Of Fox & Friends.

I don't watch Fox News anymore. There's no particular reason for this, since I don't really watch cable news period anymore, because with three kids my ability to watch anything that doesn't appear on Nick Jr, Sprout, or Disney Jr is hampered. So I haven't tuned into my old morning favorite Fox & Friends in awhile, and I've apparently missed a cavalcade of stupidity in the past few days.
Fox & Friends co-host Anna Kooiman fell hook, line and sinker for a fake story that claimed President Barack Obama is personally funding “The International Museum of Muslim Cultures” during the government shutdown and attempted to call him out on it during a segment of the October 5th show.

The National Report, a site known for it’s political satire, posted the satirical story which included the following statement from President Obama: "“During this shutdown, people will have to deal with some of their favorite parks and museums being closed,” Obama told reporters. “Just keep in mind, they will always be there. The Grand Canyon and the Smithsonian are not going anywhere.” Obama continued, “The International Museum of Muslim Cultures is sacred. That is why I have taken it upon myself to use my own personal funds to re-open this historic piece of American culture.”

As one would expect, the folks over at Fox were whipped into a frenzy over this fake horrific injustice, particularly when World War II veterans are not able to visit the World War II memorial because of the GOP shutdown.
Here's the video.

Not to be outdone, the show's weekday hosts made a cultural snafu of their own, insulting a colleague on air during a mangled Hispanic Heritage Month celebration.
Fox News host Brian Kilmeade on Friday said he assumed that the network’s Latina meteorologist “grew up on tacos,” even though it is not a traditional food in her native country of Nicaragua.

To celebrate National Taco Day, Fox & Friends asked Fox News Weather team member Maria Molina, who was born in Nicaragua and grew up in South Florida, to host a segment explaining how to make tacos.

“So what are the tips we need to know?” Kilmeade asked Molina. “You grew up on tacos, correct?”

“No, I did not grow up on tacos!” Molina shot back. “I’m Nicaraguan. It’s not a native food.”
This looks even more awkward on video...

Nicaragua, Mexico, Venezula... same sh*t. Whatever.

You couldn't make this sh*t up...
