Fox News remembers 9/11 by attacking President Obama for not mentioning God in his presidential proclamation.Fox Co-Host Gretchen Carlson noted that Obama has “called for a moment of silence, but has not called for the word God.” Fox News’ Steve Doocy added: “On this most somber of days, get this. Does the President of the United States call on people to pray for those lives lost? No.”For starters, Fox News’ claim is blatantly false…a lie, if you will: Obama’s proclamation actually calls on “God’s grace.”And, to add a bit of hypocrisy to this latest Fox News lie: George W. Bush didn’t include the word “God” in his 2006, 2007 and 2008 presidential proclamations on 9/11. But, you didn’t hear Fox attacking him for ‘ignoring God.’
