Since Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been in damage control after the candidate brought up the assassination of Robert Kennedy before the editorial board of a South Dakota newspaper Friday, you’d think political analysts would be careful when talking about the fallout.
But yesterday, Fox contributor Liz Trotta, a former Washington Times editor and three-time Emmy winner, clearly wasn’t when Fox host Eric Shawn asked about Clinton’s Kennedy comment. Instead, she made a distasteful joke (in the clip above).
Trotta: “And now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osama, uh Obama. Well, both, if we could.”
Shawn: “Talk about how you really feel.”
With an uproar in the blogosphere, Trotta appeared around 9:40 this morning to apologize. Anchor Bill Hemmer reminded her that people have been criticizing her remarks.
