Tommy Chong schools Fox over Obamacare

Fox surely made a mistake having Tommy Chong on their channel on Out Numbered.  Fox should have known that Chong is a pot smoker and leans left a bit, but has the common sense to reject their right-wing crap.

Host Sandra Smith argued on the Wednesday, November 19 edition of Outnumbered that the videos of Jonathan Gruber attacking lawmakers for relying on the “stupidity” of voters to pass healthcare reforms were relevant because  “they’re not 6- and 8-years-old to the American people.”

Chong, however, had another observation. He told Smith that “but to me, it’s just another attack on Obamacare from another angle,” and that it “sounds like Benghazi all over again.”

Co-host Andrea Tantaros disagreed. She claimed that it was an “attack on the American people for how — quote — stupid — we are.”

When reminded of attacks on the American people, Chong asked the hosts if he remembered “a guy named, what, Mitt Romney said something about 47 percent?”

Tantaros, however, wasn’t going to be dissuaded with logical points and sound comparisons that made her side look bad; she demanded that Chong “stay on topic” and asked “Is it okay to lie and get away with it?”

The unmitigated gall in that statement blows me away; it would’ve stunned me speechless, but Chong replied that “it’s called politics.”

Smith wondered aloud whether it “deserves to be asked” why he thought “Jonathan Gruber said that this administration preyed on the stupidity of the America people to pass this health care law?”

Chong answered her question:

I think you have to define what stupidity means. If you are opposing universal health care based on rumors and lies then that is a stupid way to be.
