Professional bully Brian Kilmeade was looking for some back-up from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) when he expressed outrage at footage of Syrians chanting “Allahu Akbar! Allahu Akbar!” after a rocket took down a Syrian fighter jet. Instead, Kilmeade got a lesson in Islamophobia.
"I have a problem helping those people out if they're screaming that after a hit," said Kilmeade, a knee-jerk reaction to something that he presumably thinks implicates these men as terrorists.
Practically pouncing on Kilmeade, McCain said, “Would you have a problem with an American person saying ‘Thank God? Thank God?’ That’s what they’re saying. Come on! Of course they’re Muslims, but they’re moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.”
McCain, who has been a longtime proponent of intervention in Syria, argues that action against Assad will require a broad use of force.
