Krauthammer: Obama Rev Wright Association Shows Scalise Double Standard

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.”
