Fox News host Harris Faulkner, apparently out of bad news that could even theoretically be put in the President’s lap, blamed the “trend” of people taking selfies at Auschwitz and other sites of tragedies on Obama.
I put “trend” in the above paragraph in quotation marks because I’ve found exactly one person who did that at Auschwitz and the girl has allegedly been getting death threats. There’s also this tourist and a few others who took a selfie at the East Village explosion site. Tacky, but the only trend I’m seeing, other than the millennial habit of taking selfies everywhere, is manufactured media outrage.
Of course, Fox sells the patent on manufactured media outrage, so it’s not a surprise that they would try to blame it on the President, who has taken a few selfies as well, although none at disaster sites.
Interestingly, Faulkner’s public Facebook page is full of selfies. Here’s her profile pic.
