Responding to President Obama’s comment about Clinton losing the election because of people watching“Fox News in every bar and restaurant,” Fox News host Neil Cavuto showed that he’s only gotten stronger after his surgery and absence by finishing his Friday show with a verbal beatdown for the ages.
First, the Fox News host began with the example of his own health issues:
“I ate all the wrong foods, did all the wrongs things, I ignored all the warnings,” Cavuto said. “Now I’m not saying it was all me, heaven forbid, but I am saying tough as it is even now to admit, it was mostly me.”
Then, Cavuto went on to relate his situation to President Obama and the Democrats’ denial of what went wrong for them this election, saying, “Denial is deadly, so forgive me when I see the same reaction from President Obama, not over a physical crisis, but a personal crisis, this election. His candidate lost, and he cannot fathom why.”
“Fox News didn’t create this populist wave, your policies did. It wasn’t us playing in bars that doomed you, but so many maybe going to those bars because of you.”
The Fox News host methodically listed a series of things Obama has said during his presidency and how each has been provably wrong.
“You went after the rich, and seemed stunned when everyone else revolted. All but called the other side racist, yet failed to see the writing on the wall that was pretty black and white,” Cavuto said.
“Just like you failed to see that voters didn’t have a problem with the color of your skin, maybe just the thickness of it. Just like you failed to see Americans weren’t chauvinist for rejecting a woman for president, maybe just this woman for president.”
“The buck stopped with you, not some guys in a bar watching Fox reporting on you.”
“Fox News didn’t win an election, Mr. President,” the Fox News host concluded, “you lost it, yet it’s still lost on you.”
“Sometimes the toughest part is looking in the mirror and the only guy looking back is you.”
