Fox Host Revives ‘Birther’ Attack On Obama And Says Biden Blackmailed His Former Boss

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld decided to go full racist by reviving a bigoted conspiracy theory that former President Barack Obama wasn’t actually born in the United States (i.e. the infamous “birther” attack) and that it could be President Joe Biden blackmailed his former boss because he has the “real” birth certificate.

On the Fox show “The Five” Tuesday, the panel was discussing 10 classified documents recently discovered in a office once used by Biden when was vice president, which Gutfeld admitted could be a “nothing burger.”

That led Gutfeld to suggest this about Biden:

“But the thing is, I would not be doing my job if I didn’t raise the important questions that need to be raised about what actually happened.
“Do we know that there aren’t nuclear secrets in there? Perhaps he exchanged nuclear secrets to China for the 10%, huh? That’s a question worth raising.”

And then Gutfeld added a dig at Obama:

“What if he has Barack Obama’s real birth certificate, and that’s what got him the VP job! He’s been blackmailing the Black males?”

Since we know that Fox doesn’t actually deal in news or truth, let’s do a fact-check on Gutfeld.

First of all, as to the matter of the Biden documents and how that compares to what was found at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate, the Associated Press notes:

BIDEN: “A small number of documents with classified markings” were discovered on Nov. 2, 2022, in a locked closet at the Penn Biden Center for Diplomacy and Global Engagement, a think tank in Washington, as Biden’s personal attorneys were clearing out the offices, according to Richard Sauber, special counsel to the president.

TRUMP: Roughly 300 documents with classification markings — including some at the top secret level — have been recovered from Trump since he left office in January 2021.

In January 2022, the National Archives and Records Administration retrieved 15 boxes of documents, telling Justice Department officials they contained “a lot” of classified material. In August, FBI agents took about 33 boxes and containers of 11,000 documents from Mar-a-Lago, including roughly 100 with classification markings found in a storage room and an office.

One thing hasn’t changed at Fox since Obama was president: Their sick need to attack a man who served two terms in the White House without a hint of scandal in a pathetic attempt to paper over the four years of incompetence and blatant fraud we saw when Donald Trump was in office.


Fox News Fox News Lies Gun Crime Joe Biden

Peter Doocy Is Now Suggesting Biden May Ban The Sale Of Handguns In The US

Fox News White House Correspondent Peter Doocy suggested Monday during the daily press briefing that President Joe Biden might try to ban the sale of handguns in the United States.

Doocy referenced remarks made by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau about possibly banning the importation and sale of guns into his country, which was reported by the Washington Post:

Canada on Monday introduced new gun-control legislation that, if passed, would implement a “national freeze” on buying, importing, transferring and selling handguns, effectively capping the number of such weapons already in the country.

The bill, which officials here cast as “the most significant action on gun violence in a generation,” also includes “red flag” laws that would allow judges to temporarily remove firearms from people deemed to be a danger to themselves or others and stiffer penalties for gun smuggling and trafficking.

“We recognize that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible and follow all necessary laws,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters in Ottawa. “We are, however, facing a level of gun violence in our communities that is unacceptable.”

That led Doocy to ask White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre:

“Canada is making it impossible to buy, sell, transport or import handguns. Would President Biden ever consider a similar restriction on handguns here?”

Jean-Pierre replied:

“We’ll leave it up to other countries to set their policy on gun ownership. The president has made his position clear. The United States needs to act as I just laid out. He supports a ban on the sale of assault weapons and high capacity magazines and expanded background checks to keep guns out of the dangerous hands.”

She then added:

“He does not support a ban on the sale of all handguns.”

Doocy knows damn well that President Biden isn’t planning to ban guns in the United States, and there’s no way he could even if he wanted to. Such a move would never be approved by the courts, especially the U.S. Supreme Court, which currently has six conservatives among its nine members.

Fox and Doocy are trying to frighten their viewers for ratings. They’ve been doing it ever since Fox debuted back in 1996.

Fox News Fox News Lies Media in America

Fox News Gets Caught Lying About ‘Pallets Of Baby Food’ Being Sent To ‘Illegal Immigrants’

Even though they have the temerity to call themselves a “news” network, a large portion of what Fox News broadcasts is little more than right-wing propaganda, Republican talking points, and outright lies that are easily rebutted with a quick Google search.

Such was the case on Sean Hannity’s show recently when he fell for the crap the network had been fed by Rep. Kat Cammack (R-FL), who was Hannity’s guest to whine that the Biden administration was shipping “pallets and pallets of baby formula for illegal immigrants and their families.”

As Mediaite notes, Cammack shared photos with Fox that weren’t exactly what she claimed:

Cammack has appeared on several Fox News programs to complain about the issue, and shared photos that she says were given to her by a CBP agent.

CNN’s Reliable Sources did a fact-check on Cammack’s photos, and what they found is far from what the congresswoman alleged:

The photo Hannity pointed to, and the one that followed it, showed boxes and boxes clearly labeled NIDO. As anyone at Fox could have discovered with about a minute’s worth of fact-checking, NIDO is not baby formula; it is powdered milk. As its maker, Nestlé, specifically notes: “NIDO® products are only intended for children ages 1 year and older.”

There is undoubtedly some formula being provided to babies in these centers at the border — you’d assume there would be, unless you expect the government to simply decide to starve babies in its care. The narrative spun over the past two days on the right, though, has let people imagine not a little bit of necessary food but rivers of formula going to the undocumented over themselves. It’s an illuminating example of how Republican politicians and right-wing media work in concert, turning the thinnest possible set of facts into days of outrage over Them getting something You deserve — and then, as with the photos Hannity and “Fox & Friends” used, abandoning facts altogether.

Immigration reporter Anna Giaritelli of the Washington Examiner also called out Cammack for her fake photos:

Fox News is fake news. They always have been.


Fox News Fox News Lies Joe Biden WTF?!

Sean Hannity: Americans Should Be Furious That Biden Played Golf Over The Weekend

Fox News host/right-wing propagandist/paid liar Sean Hannity may have just put himself in the running for the nonexistent award of Hypocrite of the Year.

The perfect example of Hannity’s disgusting hypocrisy and sheer idiocy can be found on his website, where he decided it would be a great idea to criticize President Joe Biden for playing golf over Mother’s Day weekend while his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, was visiting Ukraine:

The optics on this are terrible. According to a report from The Daily Wire, while First Lady Dr. Jill Biden was visiting war torn Ukraine —on Mother’s Day —President Joe Biden was working on his golf swing, hitting the links with his brother Jimmy. Meanwhile, across the world and in a literal war zone, First Lady Jill Biden was doing Joe’s job. No word on how Joe’s golf game went.

Now ask yourself a question: Do you suppose either Donald or Melania Trump would have set foot in Ukraine? Donald wouldn’t have because his BFF Vladimir Putin would never have given him the approval. Melania wouldn’t have because, to quote her jacket as she went to visit migrant children being held at internment camps on the border: I really don’t care. Do you?

Oh, and let’s not forget that Donald Trump played more golf and took more “personal time” away from the White House than any president in recent memory. How much? Let’s take a quick look:

  • “If we, therefore, assume a blanket average of $3.4 million per trip, regardless of duration, the total the government has spent on Trump’s trips to the (Mar-a-Lago) resort tops $64 million.” (Washington Post; Feb. 5, 2019)
  • “Donald Trump’s golf habit has already cost taxpayers at least $102 million in extra travel and security expenses, and next month will achieve a new milestone: a seven-figure presidential visit to another country so he can play at his own course.” (HuffPost; March 22, 2019)

Trump even played golf at the height of the COVID pandemic. Thousands of Americans were dying each day while Donald hit the links and gave the occasional press conference where he lied about the severity of coronavirus.

Sorry, Sean, but your bullshit only makes you look like the willfully uninformed dolt you are and always will be.

Fox News Lies The Biden Administration

WATCH Jen Psaki Masterfully Swat Down Peter Doocy’s Bogus Right-Wing Talking Point

Today, for what seems like the eleven-millionth time since Jen Psaki began holding the daily White House press briefing, Fox News correspondent Peter Doocy tried to tell a blatant lie and immediately got swatted down by the press secretary.

Referencing the Disinformation Governance Board at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Doocy suggested that President Joe Biden had created something that would censor things online.

Of course, the facts suggest otherwise:

  • The Disinformation Governance Board’s mission is to counter foreign disinformation, not domestic.
  • The board isn’t something that was created by the Biden White House. It started in the Trump administration and is being continued now that Biden is president, which makes it bipartisan, at least in spirit.

Despite that, Doocy waded in with both feet, asking Psaki:

“Does the President know that DHS is putting together this Disinformation Governance Board?” 

As she so often does, Psaki countered Doocy with facts:

“Well, Peter, I think I would note – and I’m not sure if this has been in your reporting yet – but this is a continuation of work that was done under the prior administration, under the Trump administration, to take steps to address disinformation, address the use of disinformation and helping smugglers prompt the movement of more migrants across to the border.”

She then added:

“I would note that the first example given in the announcement about this was DHS has worked to understand how ‘misinformation’ spread by human smugglers that prey on vulnerable populations attempting to migrate to the United States. So for anyone who’s out there who may be concerned about the increase in migrants to the border, this is the kind of apparatus that’s working to address disinformation. And again, continuing the work of the Department of Homeland Security and 2020. Something we’re currently applauding.”

However, Doocy seemed to have missed every word Psaki had just said, which led him to ask an absurd follow-up question:

“Just in terms of what the President wants out of this, does he want the people on this board to start censoring information that is not helpful to him?”


“Well, let me be clear on exactly what this board does, or what the work they’re doing does and in their announcement, which is publicly available in the Department of Homeland Security website for anyone to read, it says, ‘the primary mission is to establish best practices to ensure that efforts to understand and respond to disinformation are done in ways that protect privacy, civil rights and civil liberties and the right to free speech.’”

Rather than accept, Doocy then tried to reframe his query to include Hunter Biden:

“Okay, there’s this woman Nina Jankowicz, who is going to be in charge of the board. She has said that she thinks the Hunter Biden laptop is Russian disinformation. So should we look forward in the future to her censoring internet traffic about the Hunter Biden laptop?”

Though no one would have blamed her if she had laughed at Doocy and never called on him again, Psaki tried once more to explain in terms the Fox reporter could understand:

“I think I noted exactly what the objective of the board is, including continuing the work of the prior administration. And the woman you noted has extensive experience and has done extensive work addressing disinformation, she has testified before Congress testified in Europe. She has done worked closely with Ukrainians and has unique expertise, especially at this moment we’re facing.”

We’re going to miss the hell out of Jen Psaki when she leaves to join MSNBC.
