Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.) joined Fox and Friends Tuesday morning to express dismay at Newt Gingrich calling President Obama the “Food Stamp President” during Monday night’s debate.

“I understand what Newt is doing,” Rep. Clyburn said. “I always have a problem when anyone denigrates another person.”

“What’s denigrating about calling [President Obama] the food stamp President?” Guest co-host Eric Bolling asked, pointing out that the food stamp program has expanded under President Obama.

Clyburn responded by pointing out that President Obama had inherited the “biggest economic problem” America has had since 1929. “The fact of the matter,” he told Bolling, “is this man inherited an economy that was going into the ditch. You know that, everybody knows that.”
