For anyone who wasn't already sure that Fox's Andrea Tantaros has a full blown case of Obama Derangement Syndrome, she left no doubt after this little rant on this Monday's Outnumbered.

It seems she jumped the gun and attacked President Obama for not weighing in on the newly released Ray Rice video before the White House even had a chance to release a statement during their daily press briefing.

Fox Host On Alleged Ray Rice Video: Why Won't Obama Lead?:

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros wasted no time during Monday's episode of "Outnumbered" directing anger at President Obama and the Democrats over a video reportedly showing NFL star Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee in an elevator.

"I wanna know, where is the President on this one?" Tantaros asked, after a brief throat-clearing about the NFL's obligation to react to the tape.

"My question is — and not to bring it back to politics but — this is a White House that seems to bring up a 'war on women' every other week. A White House that's very concerned about the NFL, concussions, etc., prescription drugs in locker rooms," she said.

Tantaros went on to demand action from Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (D-FL). The host also used the chance to blast Wasserman-Schultz for recently saying that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) has given women "the back of his hand," a remark for which the DNC chair later apologized.

"Debbie Wasserman-Schultz should come out and condemn this, and if she doesn't, she's an apologist for domestic violence," the Fox host said.

Tantaros' fellow panelists appeared to ignore her remarks about the White House and immediately returned to discussing Rice and the NFL.
