So this happened this morning on FOX News’ “Fox & Friends.” Just fast forward to about 1:07 and hold on to your butts!
So . . . we just . . . uhhhhh . . . . how do we . . . (SIGH).
We have no words but we do have emotions. Several of them:
In case you didn’t watch Bill O’Reilly as he silently mocked Representative Maxine Waters during her impassioned speech about patriotism, the Fox News host piped up at the end of her speech saying, “I didn’t hear a word she said. I was looking at the James Brown wig. If we have a picture of James, it’s the same wig.”
The disrespect is REAL people and when you come for Auntie Maxine, best be prepared for the nieces and nephews to come for YOU!

Not only was it racist, crude and disrespectful of a sitting congresswoman, it was also familiar: in right wing trolling of Michelle Obama.

TELL US: What did you think of O’Reilley’s statement?
