Racist Fox News Claims Obama's Birthday Party Was a "Hip-Hop BBQ" That "Didn't Create Jobs"

Just when you think Fox News has exhausted all the racist things there are to say about our president, BAM! They come up with a fresh absurdity. ThinkProgress pointed us to this one via Twitter:

That's right, Obama didn't have a birthday party, he had a "hip-hop BBQ," whatever that is. And if Fox's art choices are to be believed, 100% of the the guests were Black! (Fact-check from ThinkProgress: "nothing says hip hop like Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.")

What's more, while our president was listening to hip-hop and eating BBQ with his Black friends, he didn't create one single job! The nerve! If he would only focus on job-creation, like those Republicans.
