George Will said that President Obama should examine the violence in his hometown of Chicago and “see if gun control has anything to do with that.”
Greta Van Susteren of Fox News said she believes violence in media is a large problem. “We’re numb to violence,” she said. Van Susteren also noted that “nobody is scandalized” and cited the fact that Obama “sends rappers to the White House” as part of the problem.
PBS’s Gwen Ifill took issue with Van Susteren’s comment and quipped, “I’m trying to figure out whether any rappers have resulted in the death of schoolchildren. I don’t think so.”
In watching Ifill take up for Obama during the exchange, I remembered that Ifill also put out a book during the beginning of Obama’s first term praising him and putting him on clouds for everyone to see. You can see her Damien Thorn protection very easily and quickly during this round table.
