All four Fox News primetime hosts were on the same page Thursday in their response to Florida Governor Ron DeSantis fly about 50 migrants went to Martha’s Vineyard a day ago: Island residents and former President Barack Obama should open their doors and welcome unexpected newcomers.
The first day, Jesse Watters broadcast a clip of a female Martha’s Vineyard resident telling reporters the reality is that the island of Massachusetts is not equipped with housing and otherwise provides support for many sudden migrants.
“You don’t have housing for 50 people anymore? Do you think El Paso has housing for another 50,000 people? ‘ said Watts. “How many bedrooms does the Obama mansion have? I mean, I guess it’s gonna sleep at least 50. Tell Barack to rebuild that tent, you know, the one he built for 60th birthday party? That little event? No room? Any. Look at all that room! “
In the next hour, Tucker Carlson spent a lot of time debunking the former president and mocking the island’s inhabitants, who believed that “anyone who is afraid of change is a racist”.
“We know for sure because they’ve been telling us that for years. So you might ask, where would all these newcomers live on such a small island? Simple: First they can take over Barack Obama’s compound,” Carlson said.
“There’s no reason Obama needs all that space,” the Fox host continued. “You can fit dozens of immigrant families in Barack Obama’s pool house and five or six other families in the pantry. Move on: Build a lawnball, a backyard goat barbecue — and bingo — and you’ve got affordable housing! “
“That seems fair,” he added later. “Unfortunately, we don’t expect Obama to see it the same way. He is a racist, as we have established, and so is clearly his fellow liberals. They are outraged by the idea of illegal aliens near their island motel,” Carlson vaguely stated, though reported cases of community members volunteer to help newcomers.
Above Hannitymeanwhile, server with same name broadcast the same clip of the island’s residents speaking to the press.
“They don’t have room for 50 migrants … not even where Obama has a 7 bedroom, 8 bathroom, 7,000 square foot, 30 acre motel that might be sitting empty as we speak, ‘ he reacted. “What, no guests allowed? Not illegal… why don’t we build on 12 acres a tent city for illegal immigrants? They have 30 acres. That’s a lot of area! “
“Remember that nearly 80 percent of the island’s residents are hardline Democrats who voted for Obama and Biden, and they support cities and states with open and sanctified borders. . And yet, just 50 people emigrated then and the entire island has now fallen into a state of panic, racism (by their definition), and xenophobia, and of course they are blaming the Communist Party. peace and Ron DeSantis about their inner rage,” Hannity asserts, echoing Carlson. “They couldn’t handle that they were exposed.”
In an attempt to prove his point, one of the clips Hannity played later was Congressman Dylan Fernandes (D-MA) calling out DeSantis on CNN for using migrants “as a pawn” politics”, which he said was “really an inhuman thing to do.” Fernandes also criticized governor on Wednesday night on Twitter, writing that the potential presidential candidate is only interested in scoring “cheap political points on twitter Tucker Carlson and MAGA.”
Final, Laura Ingraham during 10 p.m. couldn’t resist talking about the former president either, before she also played the same video clip that was shown on two other broadcasts.
“Now wait a minute. There’s a tent city about 50 yards in front of Union Station,” she said, referring to Fox News headquarters in Washington, DC. Veterans are living in tents here. But we can’t have tents in, what, Obama’s compound? Can’t they accommodate 50 people? “
