Have we submitted FOX news at any point. Maybe they should be in the hall of fame for constantly being douche

"Take the stairs."

The new footage of NFL star Ray Rice's brutal knockout of his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City elevator has sparked an impassioned national conversation about the entrapping nature of domestic violence and its long-term psychological effects.

Except on "Fox and Friends," where the big takeaway, according to co-host Brian Kilmeade, was this: "Take the stairs." Kilmeade and co-host Steve Doocy, who chimed in Monday morning with, "The message is, when you're in an elevator, there's a camera, sparked another national conversation about the mindless nature of morning television and its apparent long-term psychological effects of its hosts.

Kilmeade did offer a brief apology at the opening of this morning's program at 6 a.m.: "Comments we made during this story yesterday made some feel like we were taking the situation too lightly," he says. "We are not. We were not. Domestic abuse is a very serious issue to us, I can assure you."

Kilmeade on Monday had also criticized Janay Rice, saying that women who stay with their abusers send a "terrible message" as opposed to the message sent by celebrated pro athletes with their fists? While domestic violence victims' advocates would much rather focus the conversation on the abusers than their prey, the Ray Rice case and social media has spurred victims to speak up for themselves.


Meanwhile, Rice herself this morning seemed to blame the media for her "nightmare." Via Instagram, she writes, "To make us relive a moment in our lives that we regret every day is a horrible thing. To take something away from the man I love that he has worked his ass of for all his life just to gain ratings is horrific."
Believe in Yourself
Because the rest of us think you're an idiot.
