If you have an aversion to making your own head explode, look away. But if you want to see Fox News in all its wingnut glory, have we got the video reel for you. Watch as Fox News scolds President Obama for purportedly relegating Republicans to the “back of the bus” and schools him on how to be more sensitive about the dark period of racism that the civil rights movement rescued us from. Truly unreal stuff.
Special Face-Palm Bonus: Included in the reel is Dana Perino, press secretary for George W. Bush, saying about Obama, without a hint of irony: “When you’re president, your words carry weight. Either he doesn’t know that, or he doesn’t care.”
