Tuesday on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report with Bret Baier,” while the political panel was discussing the controversy over recently elected House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) speaking at a gathering of white supremacists over a decade ago, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer said there is a “terrible double standard” when it comes to guilt by association for Republican versus Democrats, evidenced by President Barack Obama’s prior association with Rev. Jeremiah Wright.
“There is a terrible double standard,” Krauthammer said. “Obama didn’t wander into Jeremiah Wright’s church one time 12 years ago. He sat in there for 22 years as a man who is a racist raved about America and about 9/11 being chickens coming home to roost.”
