The hosts of Fox News’ morning show on Wednesday said President Barack Obama was taking advantage of elementary school children and using them as “props” to push his gun control agenda — and then gave viewers advice on how to obtain assault weapons after they had been banned in New York.
The Associated Press on Wednesday reported that a number of children had written to the president after the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School and asked him to do something to stop gun violence. Some of those children were expected to be at the White House Wednesday afternoon as Obama announced proposals designed to makes schools safer.
“The White House is getting some flak for essentially using these kids as props for the president’s agenda,” Fox & Friends co-host Steve Doocy opined on Wednesday. “I can understand if they were to have some of the parents from Sandy Hook, but the children… I mean, ultimately, the best way to keep a lot of kids safe is to keep them out of politics.”
