Tommy Chong defines stupidity for Fox: Opposing universal health care based on rumors and lies


Medical marijuana advocate Tommy Chong on Wednesday told four Fox News hosts their current obsession with an MIT economist over his comments about President Barack Obamas health care law was similar to the networks coverage of Benghazi.

On Wednesdays edition of Out Numbered, host Sandra Smith argued that the videos of Jonathan Gruber saying that lawmakers relied on the stupidity of voters to pass health care reform were relevant because theyre not 6- and 8-years-old to the American people.

But to me, its just another attack on Obamacare from another angle, Chong observed. Sounds like Benghazi all over again.

Well, no, co-host Andrea Tantaros disagreed. Its an attack on the American people for how quote stupid we are.

Did I remember a guy named, what, Mitt Romney said something about 47 percent? Chong asked.

Stay on topic, Tommy, Tantaros demanded. Is it okay to lie and get away with it?

Its called politics, Chong explained. Of course.

I think it deserves to be asked an open-ended question why do you think Jonathan Gruber said that this administration preyed on the stupidity of the America people to pass this health care law? Smith wondered.

I think you have to define what stupidity means, Chong replied. If you are opposing universal health care based on rumors and lies then that is a stupid way to be.

A PunditFact analysis published on Tuesday found that Fox News had mentioned Gruber at least 779 times since the story broke on Nov. 10. MSNBC had mentioned him 79 times, and he was referenced on CNN just 27 times.
