Video: Obama Defends UN Amb. Susan Rice Against Right Wing Craziness

Pushback against the right’s fake rage over Benghazi

At today’s press conference, President Obama strongly defended UN Ambassador Susan Rice against the scurrilous attacks from John McCain and Lindsey Graham:

Whoever writes the headlines for Fox Nation (the knuckle-dragging “community site” of Fox News) seems to believe they have Obama right where they want him: Obama Falls Into Benghazi Trap - ‘Benghazi-Gate’ - Fox Nation.

The Fox Nation “community” reacts in their customary way:

Rice always looks like she came off a week long drunk. Her face looks like someone hit her numerous times with a skillet too. Flat face. She also walks like she rides a really broad horse every night.

[…]

Hmmm tribesmen big blck chief stickum foot in mouth and then chewed on it.

[…]

4 dead white American heros, I’m wondering what if they were black and W was president do you think the blacks would be so complacent???

Et cetera, et cetera.
