Fox Contributor On Obama's First Visit To A US Mosque: He May Be Purposefully Visiting One With "Ties To A More Extreme Form Of Islam"

From the February 3 edition of Fox News' Fox & Friends: PETE HEGSETH: It appears [the White House] chose this mosque on purpose.

But it also could be that they say, we're not going to see those distinctions. This White House is saying, it doesn't matter, a mosque is a mosque, an imam is an imam. If they don't have direct ties to terrorism, then we're apart of showi...
