President Obama says that it is because of Fox News, it is one of the reasons that people resent the poor.
Speaking at an anti-poverty forum at Georgetown University, Obama denounced what he called “the effort to suggest that the poor are sponges, leeches, don’t want to work, are lazy, are undeserving.”
“I have to say, if you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it’s a constant menu. They will find folks that make me mad. I don’t know where they find them,” Obama said. “They’re all like, ‘I don’t want to work, I just want a free Obamaphone, or whatever. That becomes a narrative that gets worked up.”
“And very rarely do you hear an interview of a waitress, which is much more typical, who is raising two kids and doing everything right but still can’t pay the bills,” Obama added.
Oh is this going to get the Fox and Friends crew and Howie Kurtz all worked up.
