Earlier this month, Barack Obama blamed Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss on her complete oversight of white, working-class America while on the campaign trail. However, in a post-election interview just published by Rolling Stone, Obama blames someone else for Donald Trump’s victory: Fox News.

Via Townhall:

“Part of it is Fox News in every bar and restaurant in big chunks of the country, but part of it is also Democrats not working at a grassroots level, being in there, showing up, making arguments. That part of the critique of the Democratic Party is accurate. We spend a lot of time focused on international policy and national policy and less time being on the ground. And when we’re on the ground, we do well.”

Perhaps the reason Democrats ignore working class Americans is because they know their economic policies have done absolutely nothing for them. And it’s a hell of a lot easier to just blame the media than to actually work for working class Americans.

Unfortunately, if Democrats on the FCC agree with Obama’s rhetoric it could give them even more impetus to try to regulate Fox News’s content.

    Far better if they had actually JUST ignored the working class. They CONNECTED, all right – and in a bad way.

    The Democrats plan to turn the working class into the poverty class was exposed on the campaign trail when Hillary Clinton bragged “We are going to put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business”.

    Well, THAT got the attention of thousands of ‘working class’ coal miners – and HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS of their friends, neighbors, relatives and business owners whose LIVING DEPENDS UPON wages, materials, services AND TAXES generated by just THAT ONE industry. ‘Working class’ voters in other “out-of-favor-with-Obama” industries realized “WE could be NEXT!” and VOTED ACCORDINGLY.

    Yeah, the one news network that is not a lap
    dog of the democrat party and comes the closest
    to reporting daily reality is the problem.
    FOX wasn’t nearly critical enough of the
    Clinton crime family.
