Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Welfare Recipients Shouldn’t Have AC

Lord forbid if anyone on Welfare would be so bold to have air conditioning and a television. Because if they do decide to commit this most egregious crime against humanity, welfare recipients won’t sleep at night knowing that Elisabeth Hasselbeck is there to expose them from the comfort of a FOX News studio. Yes, I cam hear all the “takers” across America shuddering in fear as they rush to hide their window units.

To hear Hasselbeck tell it tell it while on the set of her new gig at Fox & Friends, according to Crooks & Liars, welfare recipients with air conditioning and television sets represent the “ugly side of entitlement.” Yeah, because the truth is that here in America, welfare recipients shouldn’t even have homes, much less the luxury of cold air, a television set, or even a cell phone. But hey, this is what happens when there’s a socialist in the White House. Yep, and now he’s giving away free healthcare to his base as reparations for slavery while they all drive Escalades.

This from Crooks & Liars:

Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck on Thursday suggested that welfare recipients who had air conditioning and cell phones were part of the “ugly side of entitlements.”

During Thursday’s Fox & Friends, Hasselbeck plugged a report that libertarian Fox Business host John Stossel is running this week that he claims will show how welfare creates a culture of dependency.

“Do these folks really need to be on welfare,” she asked, followed by video of Stossel interview apparent welfare recipients on the street.

“Yeah, I have a TV,” one woman says.

“Yeah, I have a television,” a man tells Stossel.

“Do you have air conditioning,” Stossel presses. “Yes,” the man replies.

“John Stossel checking into that and exposing the ugly side of entitlements,” Hasselbeck remarked following the video clip.

In a second teaser, Stossel probed welfare recipients about having cell phones and the Fox News host again called it “the ugly side of entitlements.”

“Is welfare creating more victims than it’s actually helping?” she later wondered.

Stossel pointed out that he was getting “free stuff” like Medicare, but welfare encouraged people “not to look for work.”

“The motivation to go get a job is almost non-existent in 35 states,” Hasselbeck opined.
