Fox News Correspondent Reacts to Torture Report: ‘But America is AWESOME’

Fox News host Andrea Tantaros was not happy with the recently released report on the United States’ use of torture. In fact, she seems to think it is a great big Democratic plot to make America look less ‘awesome.’

“The United States of America is awesome, we are awesome,” she said, making it clear that using research and facts to suggest otherwise is just plain mean.

“We’ve had this discussion. We’ve closed the book on it, and we’ve stopped doing it,” she continued. “And the reason they want to have this discussion is not to show how awesome we are. This administration wants to have this discussion to show us how we’re not awesome.”

She then repeated that the Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein and fellow Democrats just must not like America either.

“They apologized for this country, they don’t like this country, they want us to look bad,” she argued.  “And all this does is have our enemies laughing at us, that we are having this debate again.”

The Fox host then somehow concluded that Democrats think announcing the torture report findings will stop ISIS.

“They believe if we can just shame ourselves and convince the world how horrible we are, and put us on a moral equivalency with all these other countries then maybe they will stop beheading Americans and putting our heads on sticks,” she said, ironically concluding, “They’re fools.”

For the record, Tantaros was not the only one arguing that the entire goal of the terror report was to discredit Americans, especially Republicans.

In a far more articulate Fox take, correspondent Jesse Watters also said the goal was GOP-blaming.

“They Senate Democrats, they’re just trying to get one last shot in at Bush before they go into the minority!” the correspondent said. “And they didn’t even interview any of the CIA interrogators to do the report.”
