The remarks were made during the Saturday show “Fox & Friends.” While most journalists might be fired for such an ugly half-truth, Kooiman will probably end up getting a raise and promotion. She claimed that as the president was paying for a Muslim museum, other more “American” projects, like the World War II monument, were not being funded at all. Of course the Fox News audience ate it up, since they want to believe that the president comes from another planet.
Kooiman did tweet a quick, open apology. But it appears that her “source” was a satirical news site that loves to make fun of crazy things that conservatives want to believe So, much for actually checking your sources.
