Yes, Fox Nation Really Tried to Attack President Obama for Saluting Two Marines

obama-salute-marinesProving once again that they’ll use anything to attack President Obama, Fox News’ Fox Nation used an Instagram video of the president saluting two Marines as he landed in New York to ask the question, “Was Obama’s Salute Disrespectful?”

While I know this isn’t “big news,” I guess it just hit me the wrong way. When I saw it I really just wanted to scream, “Are you freaking kidding me?!” With everything that’s going on in the world, when this country really needs to be trying to come together, Fox is going to push this kind of garbage?

He saluted two Marines while holding a cup of coffee… what disrespect! Screw it, let’s impeach him. I guess he should have sent thousands of them to die in a war based on a lie, then conservatives would think he was a good president.

It remind me of the other times Republicans have flipped out on President Obama for trivial things, such as:

Heck, they even flipped out because Michelle Obama dared to say that drinking water is a good thing.

And in every single one of these instances, Fox News was the driving force behind this ridiculous anti-Obama (both Barack and Michelle) outrage.

I just don’t see how anyone can take Fox News seriously. When they seem as “outraged” over how President Obama is dealing with ISIS as they do over the fact that he wore blue jeans in the Oval Office, it’s so sad it’s comical. And it is actually funny – until the reality sets in that tens of millions of Americans are buying into this laughable absurdity.

It’s like I’ve often sadly joked, President Obama could cure cancer and Fox News would say he’s “waging a war on oncologists.” Pretty much no matter what he says or does, Fox News and other various conservative media outlets are going to try to find any way to wage some kind of ridiculous attack on him.

Even when it’s something as ridiculous as this.

Check out the Instagram video of the salute below:
