Fox guest complains that “the president makes a comment and somehow he becomes ... xenophobic and racist”
David Avella: “These four members can certainly say what they want about the president of the United States and many Democrats say far more hateful things about the president of the United States”
From the July 15 edition of Fox News' America's Newsroom:
DAVID AVELLA (GOPAC CHAIRMAN): The Dems are very selective in who makes comments about others that is racist and who is not. Now, these four members --
JESSICA TARLOV (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Is that racist, what he said?
AVELLA: These four members can certainly say what they want about the president of the United States and many Democrats say far more hateful things about the president of the United States and that's OK. But the president makes a comment and somehow he becomes all the words and xenophobic and racist that Democrats like to pin Republicans on. But Jessica dismisses this discussion about how what this does to Democrats. Look, Democrats are already united in many ways against this president. Where they are most divided is on whether they should impeach him or not. And here is the problem for Democrats: They know, people like Nancy Pelosi know, that independents don't want to see impeachment go through. Despite what they think whether the president did something wrong or not, they don't want impeachment. They want to focus on issues. Every day Democrats talk about impeachment is a day closer the president is to being reelected.
