MSNBC's Martin Bashir Likens Bus Bullies To Obama Opponents

MSNBC's Martin Bashir likens those condemning the bullying of a bus monitor to being the bullies themselves.

"What's been interesting is you've watched the condemnation of these children's behavior, some of the people who have been most vociferous in their condemnation of this conduct are actually the most vicious and inappropriate when it comes to what they say about the president and his background and life, his origins, religious faith, his family, his wife. The early references that were barely concealed attacks on Michelle Obama," Bashir said on MSNBC's "NOW" program.

"So it's been interesting to see this absolute outflow of anger and animosity coming from individuals who themselves behave like that on a daily basis. Also, the other thing is, the facts especially I believe in most states is that we've seen a decline in crime. So in terms of serious actions, many young people are actually not behaving like this. This isn't an exemplar of the generation of young people. I've got three children. They don't behave like this. You've got young children. They wouldn't. It's not true," Bashir also said.
