The biography, by Zev Chafets, quotes Mr. Ailes as saying that President Obama “never worked a day in his life” and “never earned a penny that wasn’t public money.” The Fox News chief also derided the president for being “lazy” and playing too much golf and basketball.
“This is the kind of stuff that is really disgusting at the end of the day,” he said. “First of all, Barack Obama’s hair is white. He looks like the black Santa Claus shaved his beard off. You don’t go looking from Tiger Woods to looking like Morgan Freeman in three years if you’re not working hard. There’s a racial charge I think that some people find offensive.”
Mr. Jones went on to imply a racial double-standard because “Nobody calls [House Speaker John] Boehner lazy,” because he said he plays golf four times more than the president.
