image for Stunning Supercut Video Exposes The Fox News Double Standard On Trump And Obama

A new supercut video shows Fox News hosts slamming former President Barack Obama for the same actions that they either ignore or praise when it comes to President Donald Trump.

The video features Fox News personalities who were on the air during the Obama years, and several are no longer with the network.
