Here’s Liz Trotta on FOX News this morning.
For those of you that can’t play YouTubes, here is what she said:
“and now we have what … uh…some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama …uh..um..Obama [after being prompted by the FNC anchor]….well both if we could [laughing]”
I consider this to actually be a crime. Seriously. Going on television and advocating that ‘we’ kill Barack Obama if we can is a crime. Isn’t it? Any lawyers want to weigh in on this one?
