Fox News Doesn't Get This Whole Foreign Languages Thing

Fox News Doesn't Get This Whole Foreign Languages Thing

Upon hearing that the health care reform law can be explained in over 150 languages at their call centers from Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, the on-air personalities at Fox News reacted just as you'd expect they'd react: faux outrage.


“There’s also a report that says there’s 150 different languages available to those who wanted to sign up!” Hemmer exclaimed following a Fox News report about glitches during the first day of Obamacare enrollment. “Where does that happen?”

“I got an idea,” the Fox News host continued. “How about English?”

“English, that would be a good start,” co-host Martha MacCallum agreed.

Last night on Twitter Dana Perino came out with this jawdropper, and got lambasted for it, as the tweet drew the ire of many.


No doubt Perino wonders why so many Americans keep talking 'Mexican' too.
