Watch This Fox Yakker Make An Ass Of Himself By Scolding John Legend

Everybody's frat boy, Jesse Watters, couldn't resist a swipe at all those liberals at the Oscars.

How dare John Legend bring up the Voting Rights Act at the Academy Awards after winning an Oscar? The gabblers on GOP TV's Outnumbered just couldn't abide.

Raw Story:

“We know that the Voting Rights Act that they fought for 50 years ago is being compromised now in this country today,” Legend had said after winning Best Original Song for the movie Selma. “Right now the struggle for freedom and justice is real.”

Clearly disappointed, Fox News host Harris Faulkner sighed and called Oscar speeches “bizarre.”

“It was a lot of politics last night,” Watters opined. “A few things. On Patricia Arquette, I don’t think it’s very brave to get up there on the soapbox and talk about wage equality when your dress costs $3,000 and you work about two months out of the year. I also think it would have been a little braver of her to talk about maybe women being enslaved by ISIS if she really wants to take a stand.”

“On John Legend, I think he talked about voter ID and discrimination,” the Fox News correspondent continued. “I just want to fact check there, a lot of the states that passed voter ID laws, black voter participation has actually gone up. So, I don’t even think that’s true.”

On what planet could these things be true? Only on Faux News (GOP TV) can they make such claims with a straight face. No, you dork. Black voter participation has not gone up in voter ID states. Get a grip.

A nonpartisan congressional study released last yearfound that states which passed voter ID laws saw disproportionately lower minority turnout in 2012.

Of course, the facts won't matter to anyone who believes what that smirking idiot has to say, but at least there's a record of correction.
