When it can smear President Joe Biden, of course.
Taking a pause from slobbering over its favorite p***y grabbing fascist, FoxNews.com turned a few instances of President Joe Biden cursing into a front page story the site called, “Potty Mouth POTUS.”
The laughably sanctimonious pretext for the article was that Biden insults voters. Here’s the headline and subheading:
'Horse's a--': Biden has repeatedly insulted voters, contrary to White House press sec's claim
While campaigning in 2020, Biden called one man a 'horse's a--'
The article begins:
On Tuesday, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre claimed that President Biden does not insult voters, but he has made insulting remarks to them on several occasions.
"One thing that the president does not do is insult voters or American people," Jean-Pierre said.
However, Biden has a long history of questionable remarks to voters and members of the media.
The article might have a smidgen of legitimate journalism if it didn’t come from the network that cheerleads the guy who doesn’t just insult people but endangers them, assaults them and boasts about assaulting them.
Less than a year ago, being a MAGA mouthpiece cost Fox $787.5 million, the price it paid to settle Dominion Voting System’s defamation lawsuit. Still on deck is Smartmatic’s similar but potentially much more expensive $2.7 billion suit. Also Ray Epps’ suit, for an unspecific amount of damages. But, apparently, that’s just the cost of staying married to Trump for Lachlan Murdoch and the Fox board.
Are we seriously meant to believe that Fox viewers are clutching their pearls over being challenged for their bigotry, when Fox has specialized not only in cheerleading the most vicious of personal attacks (see: thousands of examples from Jesse Watters, Hannity, Carlson, O’Reilly, etc, etc etc) but they’ve also encouraged their on-air personalities to engage in them. Everything from disgraced pundit Glenn Beck projecting his own issues and calling President Obama a “racist” to James Taranto on Hannity’s show in 2011 calling President Obama “a pathetic little man”. And that doesn’t even touch their gleeful joy at watching Mike Pence’s childish former spokesman constantly throwing tantrums throughout the unfortunate epoch of 2017-2020.
Honestly, do these people really think that nobody can remember their vicious, bigoted, hateful comments from even two minutes ago?
