Fox News host Andrea Tantaros said on Monday that President Barack Obama had contributed to making race relations worse than any time in U.S. history, but she gave him “credit” for going to school and marrying the mother of his children.

On the Martin Luther King Jr. Day edition of Out Numbered, Tantaros noted that Obama’s election was a “huge moment for the African-American community, and to his credit, whether you agree with what President Obama believes or not, you have to admit, he has done a lot of good.”

“He gives a very aspirational goal for a lot of young black men,” she remarked. “I think he’s a terrific role model, at least as a father and a good husband. I know people don’t want to hear that.”

“What I will not give him credit for is he said that he was going to heal this country, and I think a lot of people expected something different,” the Fox News host continued. “I didn’t because I read all his books and knew where he was going to go, and divide the country, and that’s how he’s advanced his career.”

“I think race relations are worse than they ever have been.”

Conservative radio host David Webb argued that it was dangerous to “put too much hope in any one man.”

“Why? Because one figure won’t change it,” Webb said.

“He has changed it,” Tantaros insisted. “He’s not just one figure, he’s the president of the United States, and he’s changed it for the worse.”

“But you do have to give him credit. I mean, going to college, marrying, raising two good daughters — well behaved daughters. I mean, you’ve got to give him credit there.”

“Those things are good,” Webb replied. “Lying to a nation, using divisive tactics, not a good part of that figure.”

“That’s the downside,” Tantaros agreed.

Trump openly admits he’s fast-tracking SCOTUS nominee to rule on ‘fake ballots’ during contested election

Published

President Donald Trump is openly admitting he's wasting no time, fast-tracking the replacement for Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to help him during a contested election.

Speaking on "Fox & Friends," Trump on Monday said because of "fake ballots," he does not want a 4-4 Supreme Court ruling on the election, should there be one. There is zero evidence of fake ballots.

Trump suggests though he wants a confirmation vote before the elections, citing election disputes and his baseless claim of “fake ballots” being filled out. We don’t want a 4-4 tie at the court, he said

President Donald Trump on Monday told "Fox & Friends" that he believed Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's dying wish may have been a "hoax" concocted by Democrats.

During the interview, the president was asked about Ginsburg saying that she did not want to be replaced until after the 2020 presidential election.

"I don't know that she said that, or was that written out by Adam Schiff and Schumer and Pelosi," the president said. "I would be more inclined to the second."

As CNN fact checker Daniel Dale notes, Ginsburg's dying wish was "conveyed by the granddaughter."
