Gretchen Carlson: Being President Is Just Like Hosting “Fox & Friends”
During yesterday’s discussion on Fox and Friends about the McChrystal story, Gretchen Carlson made what may well be the most bizarre analogy ever: (Begins at 2:17)
“This is what being president of the United States is all about. It’s these tough, huge monumental decisions. It’s not about how you run a campaign. It’s not about whether or not you’re popular. It’s not about whether or not you’re a celebrity, good looking, tall or short. It’s in the time of crisis making these executive decisions
It’s just like our job– from a day-to-day basis, a lot of times where there’s big breaking news, we just sort of roll along. But what’s the role of an anchor during huge breaking news? Remember growing up? You tune to the television, and during that one moment during the year, they would have to carry a story all alone. It’s the same thing as being the President of the United States.”
Ummmm, no Gretchen, it’s not.
