Fox News Host Just Turned On Trump And Slammed Him For A Disturbing Policy Change

When Trump starts getting lectured by Fox News, you know that it’s bad. President Trump announced the end to an Obama ban on importing elephant hunting trophies from Africa, and Fox News host Laura Ingraham let him have it.

This comes after the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) decided that hunting elephants from Zimbabwe and Zambia “will enhance the survival of the species in the wild,” which is how FES decides whether or not to allow imported parts, known as trophies, of animals.

“Legal, well-regulated sport hunting as part of a sound management program can benefit the conservation of certain species by providing incentives to local communities to conserve the species and by putting much-needed revenue back into conservation,” an FWS spokesman said as an excuse of the decision. Any elephant trophy imports between January 21, 2018 through the end of 2018 will be considered legal.

Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who’s Department has jurisdiction over FWS, explained that the ban’s reversal is simply to promote hunting.

“Some of my best memories are hunting and fishing with my dad and granddad, and then later teaching my own kids to hunt and fish. That’s something I want more families to experience,” said Zinke.

I’m sorry, what? Has the United States Fish and Wildlife Service headed on over to Africa to determine for themselves whether killing elephants for sport will “enhance the survival of the species in the wild?” Oh right, they probably have, and got petulant because couldn’t take their “trophy” home. And I think killing elephants is the exact opposite of the mission to conserve the species. Now let’s just watch how many Republican politicians decide to take a family jaunt – ahem, the Trumps – to a rural African nation and come back with something to place in the Oval Office of the White House. This practice is deplorable; if you want to hunt and fish to make family memories, go to your nearest United States national park, camp out and go fishing. Do not, under any circumstances, believe that what this reversed measure entails is a needless opportunity for the wealthy to hunt a majestic animal for sport and get away with it.
