Fox News – Can They Get Any Dumber? Yes, they can…
Have you seen this bit of mind-numbing drivel from Fox and Friends yet? Some idiot thought it would be a wonderful idea to bring on a 4-year old girl and her 7-year old sister to make the case that President Obama is anti-business. Brian Kilmeade introduced the two girls as entrepreneurs who are running a lemonade stand without government assistance and (he actually said this), “without any help.”
Here, just watch it. WARNING: Cringe Alert is in effect (e.g. the 7-year old says that she can’t give the recipe for the lemonade because it is “proprietary” information. Sheesh.)
Just when you thought that Fox could not sink any lower, they embarrass themselves with stupidity of this sort. The irony of this sad spectacle is that the girls lend credence to exactly what the President said. They had help in starting their ‘business’ from their “investors” (dad, stepmom and others). Also, of course, there would be no lemonade stand without the roads and sidewalks to get people to the stand and there would be no actual lemonade without the water filtration plants to purify the water. And let’s not get into the lemons which were grown in orchards by farmers who probably operate because of government subsidies. Let’s not even talk about the schools that teach 7-year olds how to write words like ‘L-E-M-O-N-A-D-E’.The only positive coming out of all this was that Fox viewers got to listen to guests who matched not only their level of knowledge, but that of the hosts as well. As for IQ, I suspect that the young girls had both viewers and hosts beat.
