Fox News anchor calls the Obamas’ fist pound ‘a terrorist fist jab.’

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.

Watch it:

As Media Matters notes, at no point during the ensuing segment did Hill explain her earlier reference to “a terrorist fist jab.”

Digg It!

UPDATE

Media Matters has a petition calling on Hill to apologize for her “appalling and unacceptable” comments.
