The hosts of a Fox News morning show that created and aired a four-minute, attack ad-style video filled with falsehoods about President Barack Obama during his re-election campaign are wondering why they did not get invited to the White House with other media personalities on Tuesday.

Several reports confirmed on Tuesday that MSNBC hosts Ed Schultz, Lawrence O'Donnell, Rachel Maddow and Al Sharpton had joined other "progressive media" personalities at the White House to meet with the president.

"I'm shocked by that!" Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade exclaimed the next morning. "Invite five talk show hosts in? All from the same channel? That's outrageous!"

"It might be outrageous, but what I'm saying is I'm not surprised by it," co-host Gretchen Carlson remarked. "I mean, that station is delivering the message of this administration. So, it makes sense."

"Yeah, but that particular channel, that's all they're going to do anyway," co-host Steve Doocy opined. "It would be nice to see somebody from CBS, somebody from NBC... Fox News Channel invited as well."

"Think about it, the president said he's not talking to Republicans unless they agree to raise the rates," Kilmeade insisted. "He hasn't talked to Majority Leader [Eric] Cantor in over a year, but, yet, it's time to meet the talk show hosts on another channel. That's incredible."

"Maybe it was a thank you of sorts for the re-election," Carlson concluded.
