Following President Obama's press conference on gun safety legislation, at which he was accompanied by four youths whom had written him letters, Malkin appeared on "Fox & Friends" to attack him for using children as a "prop" to promote a cause.
"This is a time-tested tactic of the left — and I’ve followed it from the Clinton years onward — of using kiddie human shields to deflect tough questions about the costs and consequences of these often reckless and rash public policy decisions that are born of emotionalism and unfortunately exploitation, and not any real commitment to solving the problems."
It is also a "time-tested tactic" of the right, such as when George W. Bush similarly announced his opposition to stem cell research in 2005.
Though this was not brought up, Brian Kilmeade did interrupt by saying that he was not happy to see the recent NRA ad attacking Obama's children.
Malkin defended the ad, saying that Barack and Michelle Obama "have no problem dragging their daughters in front of the cameras when they're arguing their own public policy," and that "Michelle Obama did it with health care."
In other words, it's perfectly okay for Republicans to attack children, but not for Democrats to even so much as mention them.
Spoken like a true most wanted instigator.
