Fox News segment on Sandra Bland
I know. This is Fox News. They say ridiculous shit.
But this segment on Sandra Bland truly crosses the line. In it, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, without cracking a smile, suggests that Officer Brian Encinia may have been physically threatened by the flaming weaponized cigarette being smoked by Bland. Here's the conversation ....
HASSELBECK: But, what if, I mean, there are times, I'm sure, someone has, in the history of this land, used a cigarette against a police officer, maybe chucked it at him, pushed it at him.
HASSELBECK: If he indeed felt it could be a potential threat, was that the wise thing to do?
The preposterous video, highlighted by Media Matters, can be seen below.
