Fox analyst: ‘The very poor suffer from gout’
Fox News business analyst Charles Payne continued his usual attack of America’s impoverished Saturday morning, agreeing with Mitt Romney’s much discussed and criticized comment this week.
In fact, Payne told Neil Cavuto that the country’s financially challenged actually
suffer from gout.
“Mitt was right,” he said. “The very poor in this country do have a lot of programs, a lot of benefits. People aren’t dying in America. You know, in fact, the very poor suffer from gout. In the 1920 and 30s, that was called the rich man’s disease.”
Payne’s comments are just the latest attack on America’s poor from Fox News.
