Even Bill O’Reilly Thinks Fox News’ “Latte Salute” Freak-Outs Are Ridiculous (Video)

bill-oreilly-lattePerhaps by now you’ve heard about the absolutely horrifying and devastating “latte salute” done by President Obama a couple of days ago after he landed in New York.

That was sarcasm by the way.

While I absolutely understand if you think the fact that this “story” has even made the news is absurd (I would agree with you), it seemed to be a pretty huge deal for the folks over at Fox News. Then again, when isn’t pathetically attacking President Obama for practically everything he does a “big deal” for that network? Heck, it’s pretty much all they’ve done since he was nominated back in 2008.

Even if that includes blaming him for things that happened during the George W. Bush administration.

Well, on Fox & Friends Bill O’Reilly sat down with one of the most ridiculous shows on cable news the Fox News morning team and called out their ridiculousness for making such a big deal out of this “latte salute.”

“I know a lot of people don’t like President Obama, but once in a while, you gotta cut him a little slack,” he said. “He didn’t mean anything malevolent about it.”

Though Elisabeth Hasselbeck was having none of this and still tried to push this nonsense even after O’Reilly had called the network out for continuing to run with it.

“But you understand why it’s bothering?” she asked.

O’Reilly more or less blew her off, saying, “In life, you don’t sweat the small stuff.” Though, to be fair, O’Reilly has pretty much made a career out of often “sweating the small stuff.”

But it seems that Bill O’Reilly and myself are oddly on the same page when it comes to this ridiculous “controversy.” While I understand that it’s a requirement on Fox News to bash the president for pretty much everything he does, for them to have seemingly gone out of their way to attack him for such an insignificant thing is just pathetic.

Something that even Fox News’ most watched personality Bill O’Reilly knows.
