Hasselbeck: Obama Should Speak Out on James Foley as He Did on Michael Brown

Fox & Friends host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said Wednesday morning that President Barack Obama should aim the harsh rhetoric he had for the death of Michael Brown at ISIS over the beheading of captured journalist James Foley.

“You saw some strong language come from the president as events have been unfolding in Missouri,” Hasselbeck said. “I think to honor this family of James Foley, at the very least there could be some language indicating strength and oppressing against and a commitment to destroy ISIS. Their mission is clearly to destroy us.”

Obama has addressed the Ferguson situation three times since it began, in a written statement calling Brown’s death “heartbreaking,” in a press conference calling for calm in Ferguson, and again in a phone Q&A in which he said he needed to be careful not to prejudge an investigation. It’s unclear which statement Hasselbeck was referring to.
