FOX News are masterminds at screening their guests beforehand to either match their agenda or become a lamb to the slaughter and the former was proven with a recent appearance from Conservative Review correspondent Deneen Borelli.

Following the fake outrage from President Obama’s interview on comedian Marc Maron’s podcast where he said the n-word mid-sentence, Borelli used her guest spot on FOX News Live to tear down the president in an off-base rant, labeling him the “rapper-in-chief.”

“He has really dragged in the gutter-speak of rap music,” Borelli said. “So now he’s the first President of rap, of street? I mean, come on, he has lowered the stature of the high office of the President of the United States and the question is, why did he do this? Did you see all of the people coming together in the streets of Charleston, South Carolina? Black, white, and otherwise, coming together, praying, supporting each other. And here you have the president make this insane crazy comment of using the n-word to distract.”

To backtrack, Obama and Maron were discussing race relations in America in the wake of the Charleston church shooting. When the conversation steered towards a resolution, Obama said, “The legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives, you know, that casts a long shadow, and that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on. We’re not cured of it,” he continued. “And it’s not just a matter of it not being polite to say ‘n——-’ in public.”

The part where “gutter-speak” or Hip-Hop culture arose in that blurb is lost on us, but Borelli is obviously a right-winger for the sake of not being labeled left.

Thankfully, Basil Smikle Jr., president and founder of Basil Smikle Associates, was also present to offer up some logically balance during the segment.

“He’s making the point that you shouldn’t use the word,” he said. “Let’s make sure to put this in context. He was talking about hate and the history of this country.”

Smikle added, “And also I don’t want to indict rap music on that issue because it’s not endemic to the interview.”

Obviously someone was listening with their ears and not their opinion.
