Is NBC’s upcoming Hurricane Sandy telethon truly a benefit for victims of the superstorm — or is it actually a stealth benefit for Barack Obama?
The latter — according to Fox & Friends host Steve Doocy and guest host Eric Bolling — is a distinct possibility. During today’s episode, both questioned why NBC’s affiliates are airing the benefit tonight rather than waiting for New York City to “get its feet under itself”; Bolling called NBC’s timing “more than suspect.” Later, he elaborated: “This just seems like a rush job because the election is gonna be [in] three days.”
Both Bolling and Doocy also pointed out that three of the benefit’s headliners — Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, and Billy Joel — are vocal Obama supporters. “Where are the conservative performers?” wondered Doocy. (Maybe Meat Loaf will make an appearance?)
The bottom line, in Doocy’s words — “Is it a hurricane benefit or a concert for Obama?” See the clip here:
