Yeah, that’s right. Fox News mocked this sweet 102 year old lady’s long wait to cast her ballot at the elections.
Can you believe it? She had to wait in line, then go home, and come back and wait again. That’s perseverance. You think that’s easy for a young healthy person? It was reported that in Florida alone, 201,000 eligible voters went home after waiting in the long lines without casting their ballot. This woman, Desiline Victor, kept at it. We should applaud her.
Here’s what Fox News decided to say:
Martha MacCallum said: “What’s the big deal?” and “This is such a non-issue. Ridiculous.”
Classy. As I have always said, Fox News, you are a class act.
The big deal is that President Obama invited her to the State of the Union address, and then applauded her efforts. Have you, Martha, been invited by the President of the United States of America and applauded? No, and I don’t think you will ever be, especially for making fun of the elderly, and people who are determined to do their civic duty.
