Fox Host: ‘Is This White House Anti-Semitic? … It’s Just A Question!’

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros asks whether President Barack Obama is "anti-semitic" on "Outnumbered" on Feb. 26, 2015.

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros said on Thursday during the show “Outnumbered” that she was “dead serious” when she wondered aloud whether the White House was “anti-Semitic.”

Tantaros made the comments during a segment on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s upcoming address to Congress.

“I think it is time that we ask the question — I’m dead serious about this — is this White House anti-semitic?” she said.

Her co-host, Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery, looked taken aback, calling that “a pretty heavy charge.”

“I’m asking the question,” Tantaros responded.

Kennedy replied that there’s “absolutely” bad blood between Obama and Netanyahu, but she added, “To say that the President is — “

Tantaros cut her off: “I’m not saying that! I’m asking the question. Because we have never seen an administration more coordinated in their attacks, from Susan Rice to John Kerry to the president, repeatedly, at Netanyahu, calling him, ‘destructive.’ It’s just a question!”

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
