Steve Doocy of Fox and Friends, who really is the dumbest man on television (his only real competition comes from his co-host, Brian Kilmeade), suggested on the show on Monday that the newly announced deal with Iran and several other countries was an attempt to distract attention from the Obamacare website problems.
“Don’t you think it’s a little curious– you know, some of my friends were talking over the weekend, ‘Oh, isn’t that curious timing?” Steve Doocy began. “Out of nowhere in the midst of Obamacare not unrolling correctly, the president’s poll numbers never been lower, then look, [Secretary of State] John Kerry pulls a rabbit out of his hat and changes the subject.”
“Yes,” Baier replied. “It is questionable timing.”
“However, they had been working on the deal for a while and it did come together at this time,” the Fox anchor continued. “I mean, they unrolled it at this point.”
“It’s handy for them,” Doocy observed.
“It is handy for them,” Baier agreed. “Let’s just put it that way.”
Yes, of course. They managed to get Iran and all the other major powers, including rivals China and Russia, to reach an agreement just for that purpose. At this point Obama could drop dead of a heart attack and Fox News would declare it an attempt to distract attention from (fill in the blank — Obamacare, Benghazi, etc).
