DNC Refuses to Condemn Hoffa Hate on 'Fox & Friends'

Wasserman Schultz Attacks Fox, Ducks Hoffa

(Fox Nation) - In a heated exchanged, Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz repeatedly ducked questions on “Fox and Friends” Tuesday about Teamsters President Jimmy Hoffa’s call for workers to combat the tea party and “take these son-of-a-bitches out.”

Wasserman Schultz tried to turn the tables on Fox and called out their news coverage, while refusing to address Hoffa’s remarks at President Barack Obama’s Monday rally in Detroit where he called on workers to wage war on the tea party.

“Fox and Friends” host Gretchen Carlson repeatedly pressed Wasserman Schultz for a comment, with the DNC chair attempting to stay on message by stating only that “the American people want us to focus on working together” to create jobs.

After Carlson prompted several times for a specific response to Hoffa’s shot at the tea party, Wasserman Schultz asked the host “are you kidding me?”

“Really Gretchen? How many times have you called out coarse language at tea party rallies? Almost never,” she said.
