Pawlenty censured by Fox News for claiming Obama wears Depends
A potential GOP candidate getting flak from Fox News’ conservative anchors for criticizing President Obama? That was the case for Tim Pawlenty on Wednesday when the Fox and Friends new macho image isn’t sitting well with some of Fox News’ conservative anchors who called Pawlenty’s recent comments about President Obama, “inappropriate,” “out of hand” and possibly “bad for the country.” The Fox and Friends crew took Pawlenty to task on Wednesday after Pawlenty made a comment on Tuesday that Obama gets so scared by intelligence briefings that he soils himself.
Pawlenty told radio host Dennis Miller, “The intelligence people come in and brief him in the morning, he’s probably looking for a pair of Depends, and so I think he’s in over his head on a lot of levels and a lot of ways, and that’s reflective of how he thrashes about and in some ways almost reacts incoherently to these security situations.”
Brian Kilmeade said he thought it was “bad for the country.”
Gretchen Carlson saw it as Pawlenty trying to rebrand his “Minnesota nice” image. “You can see there is a strategy in play of Tim Pawlenty trying to get a little more tough tough now the question is is that acceptable in getting tough.”
