WATCH: San Fran Officials Lash Out at Fox News over Sanctuary City Questions
San Francisco city council leaders lashed out at Fox News when asked to answer questions about its sanctuary city policies in the wake of Kate Steinle’s death.
Authorities say that Steinle was gunned down by Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez, an illegal immigrant with a long rap sheet who had been deported five times.
San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Katy Tang accused Fox News of being rude when she was asked to comment.
“We tried this through your office and we got no response,” a Fox employee explained.
“Because you’re interviewing the wrong f***ing person!” she fired back.
When asked to take a minute to comment, San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Scott Weiner said, “Fox News is not real news, and you’re not a reporter. I talk to real news only.”
San Francisco Board of Supervisors member Jane Kim brushed off the media’s focus on sanctuary cities in the wake of Steinle’s death.
“I think the issue here is gun control,” she said. “No individual with that type of record should be able to access or be able to have possession of a gun.”
The hosts of “Fox and Friends” sounded off this morning on council members’ refusal to answer the questions asked.
“So, let’s talk about Fox News, let’s talk about gun control, let’s not talk about Kate Steinle who was tragically killed,” Ed Henry remarked.
“When … these councilmen refuse to answer these questions, it’s you the taxpayer that’s paying their salary,” Ainsley Earhardt said. “And I’m wondering: are they not human beings? Can’t they at least say, ‘I am so sorry for the Steinle family, we’re gonna get to the bottom of this and prevent this from happening ever again?’”
Steve Doocy speculated that the San Francisco Board of Supervisors members like the sanctuary city policy and that this is just an inconvenient truth for them.
