'Fox And Friends' To Little Girls: Did The Government Help You Start Lemonade Stand? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"Fox and Friends" still has beef with President Obama's comments about small businesses. On Tuesday, the show turned to the ultimate source to prove its point: two little girls who run a lemonade stand.

Earlier this month, Obama said that businesses needed infrastructure investment to succeed. "If you've got a business, you didn't build that, somebody else made that happen," he said. Mitt Romney took the line out of context, and used it to attack the president for being anti-business.

On Tuesday, "Fox and Friends" co-host Brian Kilmeade turned to four-year old Eliza and seven-year old Clara Sutton to ask if they had government help when they founded their lemonade stand.

"Who helped you start this business?" Kilmeade wanted to know. Later, he asked, "Clara, how do you feel about the President saying that you needed help to start this business? And just speak from, speak from within."

When Eliza yawned, he turned to Clara. "I would say that’s rude because we worked very hard to build this business," she replied. "But we did have help."

"And your help came from?"

"Our help came from our investors, our dad and stepmom, along with other friends and family."
