Liz Trotta: Not Smart, Tone Deaf and a Very Dark Soul

Discussing the Hillary Clinton RFK controversy, Fox News analyst Liz Trotta says Hillary Clinton's intelligence can no longer be taken for granted and ominously quotes a columnist's verdict that "We have seen an x-ray of a very dark soul." Trotta then refers to Obama as Osama and corrects herself thusly:
And now we have what some are reading as a suggestion that somebody knock off Osa-- Oba-- Osama, um, uh, Obama--well, both if we could. Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha.
After this aside about the desirablility of killing Osama and Obama (which she delivers with a smirk), Trotta goes on to calmly explain how Hillary Clinton's assassination reference was
tone deaf because it's a radioactive word and the whole question of the first black man becoming a candidate for the Presidency of the United States has all kinds of overtones and all kinds of, of caveats that really have to considered in this thing and his security has been a real issue, he's had bodyguards earlier than anybody else. Surely this woman had to know that that was the third rail, to say assassination and it's hard to argue for her in this.
But...didn't you just...like...five seconds ago...blurt out something about knocking off "both" Osama and Obama "if we could" and then laugh your little head off...I mean...didn't that just happen...on Fox News...right before your lecture about overtones and caveats and considerations and safety...I...but...didn't that just...you just...I mean I'm pretty sure that...

I need a drink.
