Fox News host Lisa Kennedy took at jab at migrants coming from the Southern border, joking that they should only be allowed into the country if they could pass an “American Ninja Warrior” obstacle course.

“If you think about the kind of people you want to have in this country, you want people who are hardworking, people who are ethical, people who look out for their families and their communities and people who are very physically strong,” Kennedy said on a Thursday episode of “The Five.”

“So I think we need to set up an ‘American Ninja Warrior’ obstacle course at the border and whoever can make it, you can’t fake it, they get through.”

Watch:

Kennedy and the other Fox contributors were discussing the caravan headed toward the U.S.-Mexico border that is reportedly carrying several thousand migrants from Honduras.

People were quick to criticize Kennedy on her comments, including former Vermont Governor Howard Dean who shared the video, commenting, “Who is this idiot?” Kennedy responded calling the former governor a “humorless wretch.”

Kennedy also retaliated against political analysist Matthew Dowd, telling him to “lock himself inside your humorless fart parlor.”

The caravan has grown since its original take-off from Honduras and as it traveled into Guatemala. President Donald Trump called on the two countries and Mexico to stop the caravan from entering the United States, or face retaliation.

According to CNN, Mexico has laid out a plan of how to approach the caravan, including letting people apply for refugee status individually and allowing people into the country if they have valid visas.

Trump has magnified the caravan’s journey and made it into a campaign issue, calling the upcoming midterm election “an election of the caravan” at a campaign rally Thursday night.

Migrants? An inaccurate definition. The US gives almost 300 million in foreign aid to Guatemala. Turn off the tap NOW! 300 million would do a lot for support of homelessness in US immediately!

What a moron! Where are the jobs you clowns are creating when major retailers are going out of business or already have. Guess you don’t mind supporting lazy white trash that feel they’re entitled to welfare.

What major retailers? Sears? Blockbuster? If you would actually be informed you would know that the old brick and mortar stores have been having financial trouble for decades, but, of course, in your tiny view of the world they didn’t have ANY problems until Trump became President.Just how many jobs… Read more »

Ha! You’re on a roll, Screw!
Howard Dean of entrance exams has been quiet for a while; and where is Al Gore?
Hopefully he’s in a Tennessee cavern with Gollum, plotting how to get back his ‘precious’ attention.
Swillary may have threatened him and told him to remain silent.

Thanks Otis, but I suspect Gore is enlarging his personal carbon footprint jetting to his next global warming gig. He’s got to pay the bills for his multiple mansions somehow.
