Elisabeth Hasselbeck has been known to spew ignorance on a regular basis. The host of “Fox & Friends” continued her idiocy during a recent segment regarding the murder of a Texas deputy.

While interviewing Kevin Jackson, Hasselbeck asked, “Why has the Black Lives Matter movement not been classified as a hate group? How much more has to go in this direction before someone actually labels it as such?”

Jackson, a Black man who appears to hate himself and other Black people, responded by saying, “We should do it, but unfortunately it’s being financed by the leftists.” He also said “Black Lives Matter is a “stain on the nation” without ever mentioning the multitude of unarmed Blacks who have been murdered by police in the past year.

After receiving backlash, Hasselbeck attempted to clarify her stance by tweeting, “My question was not my opinion. It was for my guest and was [aimed] at the St. Paul group (not entire Black Lives Matter) for calling for cops to be ‘fried like bacon.’ ”

Hasselbeck will undoubtedly have another unintelligent thought while on air. She has a history of controversial statements. In June, she suggested that Sandra Bland may have threatened cops although the video proved otherwise.
