It’s true. Fox News and conservative news media in general will never be happy with anything Obama does. Conservatives have been in a tizzy about Obama choosing to go to a taping for an appearance on the daytime tv show The View instead of showing up to speak at the 100-year Boy Scout Jamboree in Virginia.
As stated in this article, if Obama had chosen to speak at the Jamboree instead, then Faux News and other conservative media sources would be jumping in his shit for not attending an open forum to discuss important issues to women on a national television program. He just can’t win.
I love the point that Jon Stewart makes in response to those who say that Obama’s presence on The View is “undignified”. Stewart shows a clip of Dubya and Laura Bush doing an interview with Dr. Phil, as well as a couple of other programs.
Here is the video clip from July 29th Daily Show.
I never watch the view, but have watched clips of the President’s appearance and it seems that he was asked some serious questions and gave some very candid answers in a casual setting.
