Jumping through the TV channels last night, I stopped on Rachel Maddow’s show because I thought she was talking about President Obama being awarded the Medal of Freedom from the Israeli government. But her report had a twist — she was talking about what Fox Faux was airing at the exact moment the award was being presented.
If you saw it you had to LOL. The image below was what Maddow had on the screen behind her. It shows what the two other major cable news channels was showing, which was a live feed of the ceremony, compared to what Fox was airing. Since I missed the first couple of minutes, I had to kind of fill in the blanks. But the point was that Fox Faux was running a commercial insinuating that Israel’s enemies were gaining strength due to Obama being President.
Funny how that works. I watched the presentation live and Israeli President Shimon Peres praised Obama for being the best US Presidential friend Israel had ever had, and was more concerned about Israel’s security than most other US Presidents — thus the reason for awarding the Medal of Freedom to the first US President EVER!
FYI — President Reagan nor Bush I ever visited Israel. Bush II went during his 8th year in office.
Hats off to Mediaite — I had been looking for the video and couldn’t find it. Visit Mediaite to view the video.
