Just the usual casual bigotry and abject stupidity on full display at Fox News

By Michael J.W. Stickings

When I first read about this at New York's Daily Intelligencer blog, I thought it must be a joke:

[F]rom the moment it was decided to pair the hosts of Fox & Friends with Hispanic meteorologist Maria Molina for a segment on National Taco Day this morning, the derp was inevitable.

It was inevitable that Brian Kilmeade would ask Molina, "What are tips we need to know to do it correctly? You grew up on tacos, correct?"

It was inevitable that Steve Doocy would pause from stuffing his face to chide, "She did not grow — she's Colombian."

It was inevitable that Molina would inform both hosts that she was Nicaraguan and tacos are not a Nicaraguan food. And it was inevitable that Elisabeth Hasselbeck would chime in, "But if you did — if you did grow up on tacos..."

Such are the laws of the physical universe.

But, no, it's no joke. This actually happened. Because it's Fox News. And because Fox & Friends in particular is populated with morons.
