"The AG comes out and bombs and is clueless on the whole thing and I don’t want anything to do with it. CNN doesn’t cover the story, doesn’t even break on CNN and Fox covers it and so Barack Obama says you know that culture war?" he said, referring specifically to the outrage in Loudoun County against the school board over critical race theory and transgender curriculum. headtopics.com
"Let’s talk about culture wars. This is a culture war his side started that his side is now losing and now he says this is a phony culture war. You don’t get to start it and then call it phony once you start losing, that’s not how this works," Watters continued.
The"Watters World" host added that Obama appears to therefore believe the outrage is"fake".DUMFRIES, VIRGINIA - OCTOBER 21: Former Virginia Gov.

"Let me tell you a little bit about how business works in TV, Barack Obama, Fox News covers the culture war that you started because it is real news so people come to Fox to watch real news. CNN doesn’t cover the story and so people don’t want to go to CNN and their ratings go down – That’s how this works."
Host Dagen McDowell, a Virginia native, later remarked that she knows many of her fellow Virginians of all political stripes who are upset with Obama's characterization."It is a loser to try to stifle the speech of parents -- which is what they are doing, it was a threat," she said. headtopics.com
"[C]ritical Race Theory is taught and promoted in Virginia schools and there is plenty of evidence that Terry McAuliffe is lying about; that President Obama is lying about – and they are telling that to the parents who see it firsthand."CLICK TO GET THE FOX NEWS APP
