The folks at Fox News’ Outnumbered honored the memory of Dr. Martin Luther King on Monday by trotting out their resident expert in fractured history, Andrea Tantaros, to declare that President Obama has made race relations in the nation “worse than ever before.”
Asked by co-host Harris Faulkner if she agreed with the president that race relations are better than they were when he was first elected, Tantaros began by saying that the president was a good role model and father before going on to say that he has intentionally divided the country.
“He gives a very aspirational goal for a lot of young black men,” she said. “I think he’s a terrific role model, at least as a father and a good husband. I know people don’t want to hear that.”
She then proceeded to attack him for being divisive:
“What I will not give him credit for is he said that he was going to heal this country, and I think a lot of people expected something different. I didn’t because I read all his books and knew where he was going to go, and divide the country, and that’s how he’s advanced his career.
I think race relations are worse than they ever have been.”
To his credit, conservative radio host David Webb stepped up to say that one man is not going to change the nation, it takes all of us to do that.
Tantaros wasn’t having any of it.
“He has changed it,” she insisted. “He’s not just one figure, he’s the President of the United States, and he’s changed it for the worse.”
