Sometimes there are no proper words to discuss the perniciousness of certain conservative pundits.

Fox and Friends invited on Fox Business' Stuart Varney, to discuss the tragic crash of EgyptAir Flight 804, and how it would affect the stock market.

However, Varney used the time not to judge the impact on Egypt's economy, but to figure out how this horrific event would benefit Donald Trump's presidential candidacy instead.

This is as disgraceful an appearance as it gets.

Varney began, "I think this destabilized Egypt more, it's already on shaky grounds, economically and politically...which I think will encourage the refugee crisis that's already hitting Europe..."

Fox News billed his appearance by their chyron as, "How the EgyptAir crash impacts the market."

He continued, "If you destabilize that whole economy, and I think this will, you further put pressure on more refugees to leave their boats and get across Europe."

Varney noted that the plane took off from Paris, -terrorism - and then transitioned into his Trump support.

“I also think this may be good politically for Donald Trump,” he declared.

“He’s already tweeted out, saying this is probably terrorism. I believe that's the nature of his tweet. He’s the guy who is saying, hands off, keep Muslims out temporarily whilst we figure out who comes in. An incident of this type is surely a plus for Donald Trump.”

Yippie!!! Trump just got some good news!!!!! Many people are dead in a plane crash - refugees - terrorism - Paris - Muslims not allowed!
