A Fox News contributor wasted little time in blasting President Barack Obama over a statement he made Friday on the killing of unarmed teenager Trayvon Martin.

Moments after Obama’s remarks, Todd Starnes, host of the radio program “Fox News & Commentary,” took to his Facebook page to brand Obama the “Race-Baiter in Chief” and call the President’s statement “reprehensible.”

Starnes also ripped Obama’s remarks on Twitter:

Starnes defended Paula Deen last month as she drew charges of racism, arguing that the media “hates” the celebrity chef because “most of them don’t eat meat.”
