Fox News Suggests Hillary Is Running For Bill's Third And Fourth Terms

In Fox-land, wives aren't allowed to have different opinions from their husbands, after all.

Fox and Friends was all a-titter over President Obama's interview with CBS, where he said he wouldn't run for a third term even if he could. (And who can blame him, after all?)

After running a short clip of the President looking back on those early months of his Presidency as a time where the polarization began, Brian Kilmeade added, "And by the way, he doesn't see his role in those early months as contributing to the polarization."

Because of course he doesn't, when Republicans had planned an agenda of total scorched-earth obstruction, after all.

After reading some tweets parroting Fox News talking points on the President's thoughts, Doocy reminded everyone of a fact. Everyone, cheer! Fox News shared a fact!

"But then again," Doocy said, "He can't run, so he wouldn't be running."

Kilmeade picked that ball up and ran, saying, "The guy that really wanted a third term was Bill Clinton."

Doocy delivered the punch line as he asked, "But wouldn't Mrs. Clinton be Bill Clinton's third and fourth term?"

Because of course women are always just like their husbands. They never have a thought in their head that he didn't put there, am I right?

When I saw this, I originally bristled at the dishonesty about President Obama's first months in office. But when I watched it for the second time, it really rankled me that a couple of men who get paid lots more money than they should be paid just assumed that Hillary Clinton is a clone of her husband.

Whatever you might think of Secretary Clinton, she should at least get credit for having a sharp enough mind to handle her own thoughts without her husband telling her what they are.
