Fox News' Medical A-Team quack, Dr. Keith Ablow told Fox and Friends that Facebook loves to celebrate base acts of murder to perpetuate unfettered narcissism in our culture, after a story broke about an accused murderer posting horrific pictures on Facebook.

A gruesome murder in Texas was posted on the victim’s Facebook page by her accused killer.In a pair of chilling photos, Kenneth Alan Amyx posted Sunday through his girlfriend Jennifer Streit-Spears’s Facebook account: One of him covered in blood, one of her dead body, with a caption reading, “Please pray for us.”

Fox and Friends discussed this story at length when Ablow made those remarks, including a proclamation that Facebook hates patriotism!

His counterpart, legal analyst Arthur Aidala thought that Facebook just made a mistake by leaving them up there, but Ablow always comes up with an Alex Jones-like conspiracy theory.

Ablow said, "Facebook respects no boundaries other than the self, in other words, they want people to express the basest parts of themselves, get lost in it as you would in a drug, but if you then say, 'Wait, I'm patriotic,' Wait a second, 'That's offensive.'"

Fox News' Arthur Aidala disagreed and said, "Look at the polls and you get fifty percent of the Donald Trump people out there. Isn't that driving fifty percent of the community to Facebook? Isn't that what they want?"

"Don' t they want more eyeballs. Don't they want more clicks?," Aidala pressed.

Ablow responded, "Eyeballs focused on self. They want narcissism, not patriotism."

Ablow topped it of by adding, "It's the ultimate narcissistic insanity, frankly. That he is celebrating this base act and they're like, (mimics Facebook clapping) thirty-six hours, we can't take it down. We know you alerted us to it, but we let people express themselves..."

Sure, Keith. Facebook would just love if every murderer in the country posts pictures of their gruesome acts so they (FB) could celebrate these ultimate narcissistic acts and perpetuate them into perpetuity because - clicks!!!

What a freak.
