Fox’s Jesse Watters Launches A Sexist Attack On Cassidy Hutchinson And Gets Shredded On Twitter

Fox News host Jesse Watters (who has been called by some “Bill O’Reilly’s former fluffer”) is absolutely apoplectic that former White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson dared to repeat something she heard took place on January 6, 2021 when she testified before the House Select Committee on Tuesday.

Specifically, Hutchinson said she had been told that failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump grabbed a Secret Service agent and ordered him to drive to the Capitol while also grabbing the steering wheel of the vehicle.

Keep in mind Hutchinson never claimed she had witnessed the altercation. She made it clear it was something that had been told to her by another person.

And now there are reports that the Secret Service and the agent in question are upset with what Hutchinson said and they’re pushing back by floating stories to the media but not bothering to actually sit down before the committee, be sworn to tell the truth, and testify.

That was the jumping off point for Watters, who began his rant with this:

“If you put up this Secret Service agent who says ‘This girl’s lying, I never said that.’ He’s got 20 years in the Secret Service. Guy’s got a ton of integrity. She’s fresh out of college. Who do you believe? He has a ton to lose by lying. She has a lot to gain by lying.”

So there’s no way a member of the Secret Service would ever lie? Not even to protect his career and not be publicly humiliated? Please! That’s just plain stupid on its face.

But Watters was far from done, adding:

“Look at her. She’s the new ‘it’ girl. She’s gonna get a job offer at CNN, she’s gonna be a contributor, she’ll probably get a book deal. And she’ll waltz around at every party in Washington. Never have to pay for another drink.”

Does it get more misogynistic than that? New “it girl”? Be sure and note the line about never having to pay for another drink, too. As if that’s why Ms. Hutchinson agreed to testify: Just so she could get free drinks.

Twitter ripped Watters to shreds for his disgusting remarks:

Fox News GOP Joe Biden Mike Pence WTF?!

Mike Pence Laughably Claims He Has ‘Never’ Seen A POTUS Lie As Much As Joe Biden

Over the past week, there’s been what can best be called a reevaluation of former vice president Mike Pence, who has been hailed by some as the man who saved the United States from a coup attempt orchestrated by his former boss, Donald Trump.

While it’s certainly true that Pence refused to delay certification of the electoral votes on January 21, 2021, remarks the former VP made on Monday during an appearance on Fox Business make it clear that Pence remains a lying sack of excrement who cannot be trusted.

Speaking with host Larry Kudlow (who also served in the Trump administration), Pence was asked:

“Have you ever seen a president who refuses to accept blame, and I want to add to that, commits so many falsehoods? I’m being very polite here, calling it falsehoods – falsehoods, you know, on any given day. He’s out there saying stuff that just ain’t true. Have you ever seen anything like that?”

Pence replied:

“Never in my lifetime. I said today that there has never been a time in my life where a president was more disconnected from the American people than we see today.”

However, what Pence conveniently neglected to mention is that Trump told more than 30,000 lies during his four years in office, including the most dangerous one: That the 2020 election had been “stolen” from him even though he clearly lost in a landslide.

As for being “disconnected” from the American people, Donald Trump repeatedly said COVID was no big deal and would quickly vanish from the face of the planet as soon as the weather got warmer. He also suggested that disinfectant injected into the body could cure the disease.

It’s a mystery why Pence feels a need to remain so loyal to Trump, who suggested that his vice president should probably be executed for refusing to disobey the Constitution.

Whatever Pence’s motivations might be, he’s a lost cause. He’s not a hero and should go down in history as an accomplice to some of the most horrific policies ever enacted by any administration.

Fox’s Pete Hegseth Pitches Childish Fit On-Air And Defaces His Harvard Diploma With ‘Return To Sender’

“Fox & Friends” co-host Pete Hegseth is a graduate of Harvard University, but he felt a need to prove that he didn’t learn a damn thing while a student at the Ivy League university, defacing his diploma live on-air and vowing to return it to his alma mater.

Mediaite reports that Hegseth said he was angry because Harvard teaches critical-race theory (CRT):

“I don’t want to elevate the prestige of Harvard considering what Harvard has become. The head chaplain at Harvard today, the president of the chaplains is an atheist. This was a university founded by John Harvard with the original motto of: for the glory of Christ. When you look at the ubiquitousness of critical theory, of Marxist thinking, of racist thinking, frankly, inside Harvard — why are we holding it up as the vanguard of what is the imprimatur of what makes someone credible?”

Hegseth at least stuck true to his word and pulled out his Master’s Degree in public policy, removing it from the frame and scribbling, “return to sender” across the front. He also crossed out “Harvard” and wrote in its place: “Critical Theory,” making it “Critical Theory University.” Hegseth signed it, as well as Campos-Duffy and fellow co-host Will Cain.

Of course, Hegseth’s stupid stunt doesn’t change the fact that he has a degree from Harvard. He always will, no matter how many diplomas he writes on or mails back to the university. He only did it for ratings.

Next time, Pete, if you really want to make a statement, take one of your Fox checks and refuse to accept it because you work for one of the most destructive forces on the face of the planet. But you won’t, because you’re a greedy, talentless prick like just about everyone who works at Faux News.

Devin Nunes Gets Slammed By Fox Host For Saying Fox ‘Destroyed’ MSNBC By Refusing To Air Jan. 6 Hearings

Former GOP congressman and current Truth Social CEO Devin Nunes got a lot more than he bargained for when he suggested on Fox News that the conservative network had “destroyed” MSNBC with its decision not to air any of the January 6 committee’s public hearing on Thursday evening.

Nunes was a guest Sunday on “Media Buzz,” and he immediately told host Howard Kurtz that the recent hearings were biased and worthless because there are no supporters of failed former president Donald Trump on the Jan. 6 committee.

Kurtz countered by asking:

“Does that mean the media shouldn’t cover it much? Does it mean they should dismiss videotaped deposition from the likes of Bill Barr, Jason Miller, Jared Kushner?”

Nunes then tried to suggest that ratings for the hearing were a bust:

“To put this in primetime, the numbers were way down. So I don’t understand how these big corporations — I know it was spread across some 20 different networks — when you compare Fox News which didn’t which did not air that live, it just destroyed CNN and MSNBC in the ratings, right?”

But Kurtz wasn’t about to let Nunes blatantly lie about the ratings, countering him by noting:

“Networks like MSNBC did very well covering this hearing. Obviously, it would appeal to the liberal viewers of that network.”

As a matter of fact, 20 million people watched Thursday’s broadcast of the hearings. Fox, on the other hand, only drew about 3 million viewers:

According to the New York Times, at least 20 million viewers tuned in to watch the hearings. Only 3 million opted for Fox, which deliberately avoided televising the historic event.

An audience of at least 20 million people watched the first prime-time hearing of the House Select Committee’s investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on Thursday night, according to Nielsen.

ABC attracted the biggest audience, with 5.2 million viewers. NBC and CBS each had an audience of more than three million. MSNBC averaged more than four million, and CNN drew 2.7 million. (The 20 million figure did not yet include PBS, so the total audience was most likely a bit bigger.)

As usual, Nunes and the other pro-Trump Republicans would rather lie than face facts.

The Ratings Are In: 20 Million Watched The Jan. 6 Hearing – Only 3 Million Watched Fox

Based on the numbers from the first televised hearing of the January 6 House Select Committee, it appears that Fox News dropped the ball in a big way and got destroyed in the ratings.

According to the New York Times, at least 20 million viewers tuned in to watch the hearings. Only 3 million opted for Fox, which deliberately avoided televising the historic event:

An audience of at least 20 million people watched the first prime-time hearing of the House Select Committee’s investigation into the Jan. 6 attack on Thursday night, according to Nielsen.

ABC attracted the biggest audience, with 5.2 million viewers. NBC and CBS each had an audience of more than three million. MSNBC averaged more than four million, and CNN drew 2.7 million. (The 20 million figure did not yet include PBS, so the total audience was most likely a bit bigger.)

MSNBC did especially well compared to Fox:

MSNBC averaged a whopping (for them) 4.161 million total viewers, trouncing both Fox News (2.957 million total viewers) by 29 percent and CNN (2.617 total million viewers) by 37 percent. CNN finished way ahead of its direct cable news competition in the key demographic for news programming, adults 25-54, with 709,000 viewers from that age range vs. 555,000 on MSNBC and 513,000 on Fox. That’s a 22 percent advantage over MSNBC and 28 percent win over Fox News.

The three Fox hosts who provided anti-coverage and criticism of the hearings — Tucker Carlson, Sean Hannity, and Laura Ingraham — saw their numbers crater, which is bad news for the conservative network with more public hearings on the way in the weeks ahead.

Once again, Fox would rather lose tens of millions of viewers than air the truth. It’s one of many reasons they should remove the word “news” from their propaganda network.
