Fox News host Greg Gutfeld, co-host of the Glenn Beck replacement, “The Five,” yesterday said that President Obama is “officially gay for class warfare,” another not-so-subtle dig at the President’s support of same-sex marriage — and yet another insinuation that President Obama is gay.
“Here’s the thing, do you notice a trend here? Obama is now out of the closet. He used to be hiding, he’s officially gay for class warfare. He’s now challenging all the experiences that he has gotten from Bill Ayers and Reverend Wright. Remember, he distanced himself, now it’s all coming back Bob and we’re seeing President Obama, he’s fighting, he’s fighting for his job.”
The ugly comments came after Gutfeld and his panel were discussing a new Obama Super PAC ad attacking Mitt Romney. Of course, if President Obama were gay, and Fox News wasn’t calling him gay as a slur, it would be another story.
“Anti-Obama and anti-gay remarks from a Fox News host shouldn’t come as a surprise, but every time they speak, millions of people shake their head in agreement,” The Examiner reports:
Claiming President Obama is “out of the closet” just for pointing out the factual history of Mitt Romney’s private sector career is not being “gay for class warfare,” it’s just being accurate, something Fox News proves they know little about.”
Fox News is once again attacking President Obama and siding with Mitt Romney.
During Tuesday’s edition of the Fox News show “The Five,” the five co-hosts were talking about a recent ad put out by Priorities USA Action, a pro-Obama super PAC. The co-hosts compared the ad to one put out by Ted Kennedy in 1994 when he ran against Mitt Romney in the state Senate race. The ad focused on workers whose place of employment was taken over by Mitt Romney’s investment firm, Bain Capital, where the workers soon found themselves out of a job. The star of the new ad, titled “Understands,” is a former steelworker who was laid off after Bain Capital took over the company he was working for, a Kansas City steel plant called GTS Steel. After being laid off and losing his health care coverage, his wife passed away after a lengthy battle with cancer.
