Fox’s Kennedy: We Should Set Up An ‘American Ninja Warrior’ Obstacle Course At Border

With conservatives, led by President Trump, pivoting their attention to fearmongering about invading hordes of brown people heading to the American border as a caravan of Honduran migrants heads north, Fox’s Lisa Montgomery Kennedy offered up an, ummm, interesting proposal during Thursday’s broadcast of The Five.

With a chyron blaring “CARAVAN CRACKDOWN” on the screen, the former MTV VJ noted that the kind of people we want in the United States should fit within the following criteria — hard-working, ethical, look out for their families, and have physical strength.

“So I think we need to set up an American Ninja Warrior obstacle course at the border and whoever can make it — you can’t fake it — they get through,” she said, referencing the sports entertainment competition show. “It’s fair and balanced.”

Yep, that was a thing that was said on a highly-rated cable news show — and it was met with chuckles from the rest of the panel.

Meanwhile, liberals, progressives and non-Fox media folks didn’t find the comments that funny, considering she was openly mocking Latina American immigrants looking to improve their lives.
