Fox Nation keeps it classy.
The headline: Obama Hip Hip BBQ Didn’t Create Jobs. The White House birthday was a private party which, according to the Chicago Sun Times, was paid for by the Obamas. The guest list included many more government officials than celebrities, as if that really matters.
Fox Nation has a tendency to portray the Obamas as irresponsible occupiers of the White House via racial messages, as opposed to a democratically elected president. Note the pictures at the top of the article. The whole “hip-hop BBQ” versus outdoor garden party with dancing inside (as described by several blogs and ABC News) is fairly blatant.
However, the url really gets the message across: http://nation.foxnews.com/president-obama/2011/08/05/obama-parties-chris-rock-jay-z-and-whoopi-while-rome-burns
How dare that guy throw himself a private birthday party AND PAY FOR IT HIMSELF after a ridiculously stressful few months? It’s not like he’s even supposed to be there! YOU GUISE! LOOK! HOW DARE HE?!
