Apparently Mike Huckabee wasn't done making a fool out of himself this weekend after his appearance on Fox & Friends touting Donald Trump for Treasury Secretary. Heaven forbid he could make it through the day without throwing a little racism in to boot as well.
After slamming President Obama for the fundraiser held on his birthday that Fox Nation attacked as "Obama's Hip-Hop BBQ" which our friends at Media Matters wrote about here -- Fox Nation: Obama's Hip-Hop BBQ Didn't Create Jobs -- Huckabee took a page right out of their playbook on his show this past Saturday night.
HUCKABEE: I'm glad that the President had such a large time with his friends. And by the way, they think that they all ought to pay more in taxes. So hopefully while they were gathered, they passed one of those great old big hats that one of the hip-hop pals wore, so that way everyone could empty their pockets and open their checkbooks, so they could give more to our ever responsible Federal government, so the fine folks at the party can bail out, our government. Well, I'm sure that happened.
So, let's give back Jack. Let's cut the Prez some slack. His birthday gig might just bring our economy back.
As Media Matters has documented and we have as well, but not to the extent that they have, this sort of race baiting is all too common over at Fox and at their blog, Fox Nation -- Fox's Race-Baiting "Nation".
I don't like the fact that we've got all of this money corrupting our politics and that it takes raising massive amounts of money to get elected to any national office, but somehow Fox only seems to have a problem with it when it's a Democrat raising the money, or heaven forbid the Kenyan usurper who never had any business getting elected in the first place in their view.
Glenn Beck may be gone, but the clown show at Fox continues despite his departure.
