Fox News Tweets Response to Obama’s ‘Blame Game’ About Them

During an interview with Rolling Stone out this week, President Obama talked about Democrats’ inability to connect more with white working-class voters. He said that Democrats just aren’t “showing up” to make their arguments, but the president also said, “Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country.”

Well, naturally, Fox News was quick to respond to Obama’s remarks. Megyn Kelly and Greg Gutfeld both hit back, and now the Fox News Research Twitter account is getting in on it.

The account, which generally tweets out stats and fact summaries, tweeted this out earlier today, recalling the past times Obama has publicly swiped at Fox:

Over the past few years, Obama has taken to joking that if he watched Fox, he wouldn’t vote for himself either. And during a poverty forum last year, the president said, “If you watch Fox News on a regular basis, it is a constant menu––they will find folks who make me mad, I don’t know where they find them.”
