VIDEO: Fox's Cavuto Interrupts Michelle Obama's Speech to Call Her Husband a "Nobody"


ClusterFox does it again:

First, how beautiful does Michelle look? I can't help but bring that up, and I usually don't preface a post with such blatant gushitude, but she really looks all kinds of gorgeous.

But let's get into Schmuckus Interruptus Cavuto's cutting into one of the most touching, effective moments in her speech. She's the first lady, you pig of a man. Did I say man? I meant douche. No matter who is speaking, barging in like an uncouth cave dweller is rude, period. But during a speech about one of the most painful moments in U.S. history? Unacceptable.

Second: Speaking of nobody's...

Third: To then compound the insult by saying that Mrs. President Obama was married to a "nobody" makes me want to hurl things at my computer screen. See "Second".

Finally: This is why I never, but never, watch ClusterFox.  Their nasty, offensive commentary influences their already susceptible, gullible viewers, which explains why we're seeing that same behavior reflected all over town hall meetings, rallies, and Beck/Palin love fests.  What I'd give to cut a few ClusterFoxers off at the knees in the middle of one of their asinine, unintelligible broadcasts the way Cavuto did to Michelle Obama's eloquent tribute.

Final Finally: The President and First Lady are, and always have been, about as "somebody" as you can get.

    Tuning to anything Fox leaves you feeling sticky and manipulated.

    I'm sorry, Bill ..... he does definitely make reference to Barack Obama as a "nobody"!

  • Anna McCall-Tanzola

    What a JERK! How dare you insult the President and First Lady in this manner? You, mister, are the true NOBODY!

    I just want to say that you said it all beautifully. Fox news has cornered the market on slimy, greasy toe rags who don't have a whole brain between them. And the one they is so deficient that they all sound and act as dumb as a sack of hair. Why anyone would listen to these freaks is beyond me, but I've even found a couple of these mouth breathers who work in my company. These are people I've known for years but not until our grown up President was elected did I find out how stupid and unintelligent these people were. One remark stands out. Our head of HR actually told me that Obama scared her because he speaks so well. If that isn't the most uneducated thing to say, I don't know what is. Now Bush scared me for exactly the opposite reason. The man couldn't produce a clear logical thought or phrase if his life depended on it. This is the man the GOP loved so much they tossed out any independant thoughts and began using that one brain and look where we are because of that. These folks need to be sent packing back to their home states, not elected to higher office holding the reigns of power.

  • I don't ignore them or hide from them. I prefer to expose them. Otherwise,

    they are more readily accepted by more people who have no idea what they say

    and do.

    Bill, I have to agree with you. I don't usually listen to anything coming from Fox,but after reading your post, I decided to listen. No, I don't think Cavuto was being derogatory in any way. President Obama was not a national figure at that time(9-11-2001). Though he was somebody, the world did not know him.So he was practically an unknown. He did not catch my attention until the 2004 democratic convention. Then I sought to find out anything and everything I could about him.Then Is when I noticed "Dreams From My Father" in the bookstore and I bought it and read his story.I started paying attention when ever I heard his name mentioned on NPR shows. I noticed that the periodicals that covered black and hip-hop culture began to talk mor and more about him. It was several years after 9-11 before the world even sniffed Barack Obama.

    I think Cavuto was marveling at how two people that most people ignored until the 2008 Presidential race have risen to become people with powerful voices for good in this country. Not only here but around the world. When the Obama's speak, people listen. That was not so in 2001.

    Every time you criticize FAUX, Palin, Beck, et al, you give them legitimacy and power.

    Instead, you should ignore them as you would ignore a bratty child throwing a temper tantrum.

    I despise Fox as much as you do, but I think you are overreacting. He is not calling the President a "nobody" he is remarking on the change between nine years ago and now, the growth in status of the speaker (Michelle Obama) between then and now, and the change in the President's status between then and now. It is not a particularly unreasonable thought, "How much has changed in nine years." It's not particularly intelligent or original, but I hardly think that it's offensive; Obama had not yet even made his 2004 convention speech nine years ago.

    Politically he was pretty much unheard of nationally and was, politically speaking, "nobody." The comtext of his use of the term was clearly political and not inaccurate.

    He also did not "interrupt" her, she finished her speech as planned long before he aired this piece. He did not have her on live, he was playing a clip and he ended the clip before the end of her speech just as all news media does. When playing a clip of a speaker it is by no means rude to play a portion of it and end in mid sentence. It is done all the time by all networks.

  • Same reason I don't watch Faux News. Plus, they lie about so many things. Hate liars.
