Last week, when Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) secured enough delegates to clinch the Democratic nomination, he and his wife Michelle exchanged a fist pound greeting before he gave his speech. Teasing an upcoming “body language expert” segment on Friday, Fox News host E.D. Hill referred to the exchange as a possible “terrorist fist jab“:
HILL: A fist bump? A pound? A terrorist fist jab? The gesture everyone seems to interpret differently. We’ll show you some interesting body communication and find out what it really says.
As Media Matters notes, at no point during the ensuing segment did Hill explain her earlier reference to “a terrorist fist jab.” Sort Comments By: Top Rated | Date
UPDATEMedia Matters has a petition calling on Hill to apologize for her "appalling and unacceptable" comments.
