Just a tad delusional.
Fox News is accusing NBC News correspondent and MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell of tying Republican opposition to Susan Rice to race and gender.
On this morning’s episode of “Fox & Friends,” co-host Brian Kilmeade said it was “totally out of bounds” for Mitchell to bring up “the gender factor and the race factor.” Then, in an unsigned article on FoxNews.com, the website’s editors said Mitchell had turned Rice’s “withdrawal from the secretary of state-stakes into a racial issue.”

This POLITICO post as well as the Fox & Friends comment is so out of context I honestly don’t know how to respond to it.
