Fox & Friends Has Advice For Janay Rice: 'Take The Stairs'

Classlessness is synonymous with Fox News, but even for them this is ugly.

Stellar advice from the crew at Fox & Friends this morning. In classic "blame the victim" fashion, the geniuses managed to mock Janay Rice and re-victimize her all at once.

ThinkProgress:

Responding to the video, Fox host Brian Kilmeade on Monday blasted the victims of domestic violence, criticizing Palmer (now Janay Rice) and other women who don’t break up with their partner after a domestic violence incident, saying they send a “terrible message.”

Kilmeade then proceeded to provide mocking advice to Palmer, quipping, “I think the message is, take the stairs.” Co-host Steve Doocey gamely joined in, “The message is, when you’re in an elevator, there’s a camera.”

I wouldn't have married him, but I am not her. And neither are these jerks, who should now be required to take a 10-hour course in domestic violence and why it's so harmful.
