Elisabeth Hasselbeck Compares NFL Domestic Violence Scandal To Benghazi

More and more people are speaking out on the NFL domestic violence scandal including Fox News’ Elisabeth Hasselbeck. The former “The View” host tweeted today about how people should demand transparency from the government in particular about Benghazi.

Okay, girl.

Media Matters reports: 

Fox News host Elisabeth Hasselbeck connected an ongoing National Football League controversy surrounding domestic violence to the September 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

The Fox & Friends host tweeted September 16, “Imagine if everyone that asked for transparency in the #nfl @nfl Demanded that same #transparency in our #government,” adding the hashtags “#Benghazi” and “#IRS,” references to the terrorist attack and the alleged targeting by the IRS of tax exempt organizations.

Baltimore Ravens player Ray Rice was indefinitely suspended by the NFL after a video of him punching his now-wife and knocking her unconscious leaked, and the organization came under fire for not previously suspending Rice when he initially admitted to the assault.

Fifteen female senators have asked NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell to “institute a zero-tolerance policy for domestic violence,” and questioned whether the commissioner or other league officials may have attempted to “cover-up” evidence of the abuse.

Fox News has repeatedly attempted to claim the Obama administration engaged in a “cover up” of the Benghazi attacks, with the evening lineup alleging a “cover up” in 281 segments in the first 20 months following the attack.

SMH….the reach is STRONG in this one.
