President Obama addressed poverty and gender discrimination Sunday at a United Nations summit, and was quickly called to task by Fox News political analystselective outrage.
Speaking at the closing session of the Summit to adopt the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, the president said that when it comes to discrimination, he did “not have patience” for countries that say “we have our own way of doing things.”
According to CBS News, the summit “is focused on fixing some of the world’s greatest problems through a 15-year road map to eliminate poverty and hunger.” Ridding the world of liberal policy will achieve the same goal in a fraction of the time.
CBS News White House Correspondent Mark Knoller posted Obama’s remarks on Twitter:
When it comes to discrimination, @POTUS says "I do not have patience" for countries that say "we have our own way of doing things.”

The hypocrisy on display was too much for Tantaros to bear, in light of the news that the U.S. military was told to look the other way as Afghan men raped small boys. And with Obama’s embrace of factions of Islam who continue to employ 7th century standards in a 21st century world.
She slammed Obama on social media with a precise reminder of that harsh reality:
Unless these countries are discriminating against gays, Christians or women. https://t.co/d8c3LeAn67

Turns out, Tantaros wasn’t the only one to see the glaring double standard, particularly in regard to the abuse of small boys in Afghanistan. Here’s a sampling of responses from Twitter:

@AndreaTantaros He also has lots of patience when he draws a line in the sand. He does nothing.
