Fox’s Tantaros on Ray Rice Video: ‘Where Is the President on This One?’

On Monday afternoon Outnumbered cohost Andrea Tantaros wondered “where the president was” with regard to the video that emerged today showing Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice punching out his then-fiancée Janay Palmer.

“My question is, not to bring it back to politics, but this is a White House that seems to bring up a ‘war on women’ every other week,” Tantaros said. “A White House that is very concerned about the NFL, concussions, et cetera, prescription drugs in locker rooms. I want to know: where is the president on this one?”

“And specifically,” Tantaros continued, “[DNC Chair] Debbie Wasserman-Schulz (D-FL), who likes to, I don’t know, talk about make-believe beatings when it comes to Scott Walker, now we have a real beating. She should come out and condemn this, and if she doesn’t, she’s an apologist for domestic violence.”
