Tantaros Worries About Christie’s ‘Aggressive Man Hugs’

Andrea Tantaros, the Fox News host and clueless dolt who screamed “The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome” in response to the Senate torture report, is now very concerned that New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie may get too aggressive with his man hugs. Seriously.

However, the Fox News wondered if there was a “deeper” issue with Christie’s desire to hug men.

“Is the bigger issue here not his disloyalty to the Giants or the Eagles, but his problem with aggressive man hugs?” Tantaros opined. “Because Chris Christie seems to aggressively manhandle the president, he’s aggressively man hugging the owner of the Cowboys.”

“Are all of these aggressive man hugs pointing to something maybe much deeper?”

This was prompted by Christie being in Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones luxury box for a playoff game on Sunday and a very awkward hug/high five that was caught by TV cameras when the Cowboys won the game. Others have made a big deal out of the fact that Christie is a Cowboys fan rather than a fan of the Jets or Giants, who play their games in New Jersey. Seriously, that’s what our political discourse has become in this country. That’s what people care about and what the media reports on. And we wonder why we’re a punchline.

    Am I the only one who finds the shot disturbing of a middle-aged man in a suit sitting comfortable in the middle of four attractive younger women in short skirts practically sitting at attention? It’s almost as creepy as that Turkish host with the tacky girls around him prattling on about creationism.

    Let’s be fair, Ed, it isn’t just about fooball, its probably still about Sandy. The GOP never forgives things like thanking a Democratic president for helping your people out during a hurricane.

    Don’t worry. It’s all water under the bridge if he runs and somehow wins the Republican primary. They’ll only remember important issues like this if he loses (“Was Christie’s loss because of his faggy faggotry?”)

    What is it with Fox and women’s fashion. I know little to nothing about fashion but only on Fox do I see women in fitted, monochrome, primary color dresses (see 2:25 in above video). At the gym there are about six screens with different news or sports organizations on and Fox is the only place I see this particular dress. I dub it Fox-Stepford

    That’s an aggressive hug? Seemed pretty tame to me. Apparently nobody has ever aggressively hugged her before. Which is totally understandable; I certainly would not want to hug someone so clueless and unthinking.

    That Fox audience skews older and male. Perhaps they’re going for identification with the old man in the middle. Yes, the hookup world could still be your oyster, Grandpa. Or: hey, Grandpa, a harem is still a possibility.

    Ms Tantaros should be indicted on multiple felony counts of gross stupidity in public, if there was a law against such a thing , along with her co-conspirator, Steve Doocy

    Man-hugging is always an aggressive act, naturally. Then we cry violently as we are muscularly consoled by our explosionesque dude-friend.

    I was hoping the problem would be that he’s hugging people who didn’t want to be hugged. That would be a problem. But nope, that’s not what she meant.

    “Are all of these aggressive man hugs pointing to something maybe much deeper?”

    No. It’s a hug. Men are allowed to show friendly affection for each other. Grow up, Andrea.

    Sadly, her attitude is very common and in some cases much more evil than just a snarky remark. I recall a few years ago there was a case where two guys were walking down a city street (I believe somewhere in the soutwest) holding hands. They got beat up and one either ended up in hospital or dead. Turns out, they were brothers; recent immigrants who came from a country where that was normal behavior. Now nobody, gay or straight, should ever get beat up for that. But I think the homophobia here is only part of the moral of the story: the other part is that some folk are so intolerant of male shows of physica affection, that they would probably love to respond violently to even family-based versions of it.

    I was going to joke about them having trouble trying to blame this one on Obama, but then … somehow they did.

    Somehow? Somehow? Didn’t you hear? Obama pronounced the name of Comiski Park, that great old former home of the Chicago Cubbies, as Kaminski Park. Probably thinking of one of his Marxist comrades. 11ty!

    But seriously, I keep thinking of making up a satirical list of the president’s top ten offenses. Things like the “terrorist fist jab” with Michelle, or putting Dijon mustard on a hamburger.

    And BTW, there is a Kaminski Park. It’s in the Wisconsin Dells.

    It’s spelled Comiskey Park. And it’s the home of the Chicago White Sox, not the Cubs.
