Rude But True

July 27, 2012 § 1 Comment

On Tuesday (July 24, 2012), “Fox and Friends” had on two sisters, aged 4 and 7, who had started their own lemonade stand. The video begins with a clip of Obama saying “if you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that”. “Fox and Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade then begins the segment declaring that the two sisters “built their lemonade business not only without government but without any help.”

about a minute into the interview, he asks Clara how she feels “about the President saying that you needed help to start this business? And just speak from, speak from within.” Clara then answers the question:

“I would say that’s rude because we worked very hard to build this business. But we did have help.”

Kilmeade then asks her where her help came from, to which she responded that their help came from their parents, friends, and family. Kilmeade, although proclaiming in the introduction that the girls got no help whatsoever, ends the segment with this admission: “Clara and Eliza, two entrepreneurs who didn’t need help except from their investors.”

Context: Fox News also had on Jack Gilchrist, the star of the now infamous Romney campaign attack ad against Obama who proudly proclaims to have built his business on his own when in fact he received over $1 million in government aid. Jack Gilchrist then admitted that Obama was right in that business owners do get help and do take advantage of everything society has contributed.

§ One Response to Rude But True

  • Reblogged this on Never. Never. Give In and commented:
    Conservatives have been in a fever pitch over the President’s recent remarks, and it’s outrageously unmerited. His comments were taken completely out of context and should actually be something that people from all parties should be able to agree on. It’s a pity :/
