Fox News’ Ainsley Earhardt did her part to get out the vote for Donald Trump today by promoting ways for early voters (who have trended Democratic) to change their minds. She didn’t mention the latest developments in the Clinton emails that Fox has been exploiting, but they could never be far from any Fox News watcher’s mind.
Earhardt, a blatant Trump sycophant on Fox, didn’t mention that the early vote so far favors Democrats. Somehow, she also controlled herself from explicitly arguing that the latest email developments mean voters should change their minds. Instead, she feigned neutrality in her introduction and just suggested that people would if they could.
EARHARDT: Millions – 22.5 to be exact, 22.5 million people – have already cast their ballots in the 2016 election. But what if you have had a bad case of voter’s remorse and you’ve already voted? A Google search for the words “change early vote” has spiked in recent days.
“Here to explain the options” was guest Erin McPike. And she just happened to highlight Pennsylvania, a swing state where Clinton has been leading in the polls.
“That is one of the states that Donald Trump has been saying is a must-win state for him,” McPike chirped. She sounded just like somebody auditioning for a Fox News job.
According to Fox, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan also allow voters to change their votes. I lost track of the number of times Earhardt and/or a graphic on the screen reminded us about that. We also got instructions from McPike on the subject.
But just in case anyone missed what Earhardt was up to, she asked, “Donald Trump is really campaigning hard in these states. Will he be able to change some of these blue minds to red?”
“It’s possible,” McPike assured her. “I think the state to watch, really, is Pennsylvania.”
In other words, probably not.
Watch this Trump GOTV effort disguised as news below, from the November 1, 2016 Fox & Friends.
Actually, I did read somewhere that Trump’s hair specialist (lives in the same building) charges the great dunce $20-25,000 PER MONTH. (Really truly)
P.S. Orangutans are lovely. Real ones, that is.
Uhhh,…..yeah Ainsley, in the primaries an orangutan was somehow chosen by one side. I’m sure a good many voters are now very remorseful.
Cubs up 9-2. Bottom of the ninth. Chicago is gonna sell a LOT of beer.
