Fox News Co-Host Says It’s Time to Ask: ‘Is This White House Antisemitic’ (VIDEO)
Andreana Tantaros, conservative commentator and a co-host on Fox News’ The Five and Outnumbered on Thursday asserted that the time has come to ask if the Obama White House is antisemitic.
Citing the administration’s consistent attacks against Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu over his stance on the Iranian nuclear threat Tantaros said, “I think that it is time that we ask the question, and I’m dead serious about this, is this White House antisemitic?”
After being challenged on the assertion by her co-host, Tantaros explained: “I am asking the question. Because look at the hostility towards Israel, we have never seen an administration so coordinated in their attacks, from Susan Rice to John Kerry to the president, repeatedly at Netanyahu, calling him quote ‘destructive’, it’s just a question.”
The remark came amid elevated tension between Obama and Netanyahu over their divergent views on how to tackle Iran’s nuclear program. Obama has insisted that negotiations with the Iranians can slow their nuclear ambitions, while Netanyahu has held that Iran, a chief regional terror sponsor, can’t be trusted.
Tantaros is not the first Fox News contributor to question Obama’s attitude towards Jews.
In April 2014, Katie Pavlich outright claimed that the president is an antisemite. “Obama won’t fire John Kerry for two reasons. 1. doesn’t need the donors 2. because he’s anti-Semitic,” she tweeted.
