With controversy and protests swirling around Michigan’s anti-union legislation, Governor Rick Snyder paid a visit to Fox & Friends this morning where he surely knew he’d receive a friendly welcome. But the Curvy Couch Crew went beyond “hospitable” to outright approval. They also accepted without question his repeated assertions that the legislation – which he previously said was “not on his agenda” – is now “all about being pro worker.” Even more laughably, he pretended the legislation is not anti union.

Snyder said, with a straight face:

I actually don’t view this as anti-union, because it really gives the unions an opportunity to better present their value case. And if people see value, they should join and if they don’t, why should their resources go there?

Steve Doocy nodded along enthusiastically. Gretchen Carlson used the opportunity to take a shot at teachers and their union for taking the day off to go protest.
