During his State of the Union Address, President Obama highlighted Desiline Victor, a 102-year-old woman who, because of Republican laws in Florida meant to discourage people from voting, was told that the wait to vote might take as long as six hours. But supported by a crowd throng of people who supported her, she proudly wore her "I Voted" sticker in half the time, after standing in line for three hours.
A 102-year-old woman, standing in line for three hours to vote? That's bordering on barbaric, and not something that any free or democratic society should ever allow, especially not in the "greatest country on earth." Yet that's exactly what this brave, determined, patriotic lady did.
This morning, Fox News hosts Brian Kilmeade, Martha MacCallum, and Bill Hemmer asked, "What's the big deal?" and went on to mock Desiline Victor:
“How long was she on line?” Hemmer wondered, casting doubt on the story.
“What’s the big deal? She was happy,” MacCallum quipped. “She waited on line, she was happy that she voted.”
“They held her up as a victim!” Hemmer agreed. “What was she the victim of? Rashes on the bottom of her feet?”Listen to the audio of this hateful fool fest here.
