Fox News Viewers Reach New Lows With Their Comments On Bill Clinton’s Hospitalization

Former President Bill Clinton spent Friday night in the hospital due to a urinary tract infection which reached his bloodstream.

The 42nd president is reportedly “on the mend” after receiving antibiotics intravenously, according to CNN:

“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.

News of Clinton’s illness was also reported by Fox News, which loves to give illusion that it actually covers the news and isn’t just involved in spreading right-wing propaganda and conspiracy theories.

However, on the Fox News website, comments regarding the former president’s health scare were disgusting and downright deplorable. In other words, exactly what we’ve come to expect from Republicans, especially in the Age of Trump. Here’s a sampling:

I’m sure it is an STD he caught from Epstein Island. I wonder if Hillary brought the painting of him in the blue dress from Epstein’s living room to comfort him in the dire time.

Not Covid-19 related for ol’ dirtbag bill means: his herpes flared up just as the claps acted up and spurred his ghonerea into full beast mode until his syphilis came on full motion and swolled up his balls into grapefruits. A hospital trip was warranted, besides with bill being buddies with ol’ bill gates, he can’t ley anybody know he has the virus with the vaccine in his creepy filthy body.

Hopefully he will go slowly, with excruciating pain and agony.

What would really be great is if all his nurses were guys who identify as girls.

What’s ironic is that many of those who commented are probably Trump worshipers. They idolize a man who has admitted that he lusted for his own daughter when she was only 13, has been accused of sexual assault and rape by dozens of women, and paid off a porn star so she wouldn’t disclose the affair she had with him.

The Cult of Trump remains strong. And pure evil.

Fox News Social Media WTF?!

Tucker Carlson Gets Crushed Online After He Mocks ‘Breastfeeding’ Buttigieg For Taking Paternity Leave

You probably recall that back in July, while he was on vacation in Montana, Fox News host Tucker Carlson was approached by a man named Dan Bailey who told him to his face:

“You are the worst human being known to mankind. I want you to know that.”

And now, yet again, Carlson has proved that he is indeed the worst human being known to mankind for comments he made about Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg taking family leave since he and his husband, Chasten, recently adopted twins.

On his show Thursday evening, Carlson not only chided Buttigieg for taking leave (which he’s entitled to under the law), but he also decided he’d toss in a line about how he wondered if “breastfeeding” had worked out.

What in the hell is that all about? Is Carlson just trying to let his audience know he hates Buttigieg because he’s gay, or is he suggesting that two men shouldn’t be allowed to adopt?

Whatever Carlson’s point was, his comments were met with anger and disdain on Twitter:

UPDATE: Secretary Buttigieg responded to Carlson during an appearance on “Deadline: White House, remarking:

“I don’t think that even speaks for most people, on the other side of the aisle from the party that I belong to. This is largely a consensus issue, not just the support for families like mine to have a right to marry and right to be treated equally, but also that families in general. Moms and dads have to be able to support their children including with paid leave.”

Congress Fox News WTF?!

Kevin McCarthy Claims Google ‘Tries To Control Our Thoughts’

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) said Sunday that he believes Google “tries to control our thoughts” with their search engine, which is used by more than 88% of Americans.

Appearing on the Fox News show “Sunday Morning Futures,” McCarthy was told by host Maria Bartiromo:

“The DOJ has asked Google to send them the people who search for certain phrases. And is Google participating in this? Tell me about that. This was very concerning when I understood what this was all about — that Google was actually going to provide phrases that we put in that search bar.”

Bartiromo seems to be referring to a report from Forbes that the Justice Department had asked Google to provide data on people who’d searched for the name or address of sexual assault victims. According to that article:

In 2019, federal investigators in Wisconsin were hunting men they believed had participated in the trafficking and sexual abuse of a minor. She had gone missing that year but had emerged claiming to have been kidnapped and sexually assaulted, according to a search warrant reviewed by Forbes. In an attempt to chase down the perpetrators, investigators turned to Google, asking the tech giant to provide information on anyone who had searched for the victim’s name, two spellings of her mother’s name and her address over 16 days across the year. After being asked to provide all relevant Google accounts and IP addresses of those who made the searches, Google responded with data in mid-2020, though the court documents do not reveal how many users had their data sent to the government.

That led McCarthy to remark:

“We know how Google tries to control our thoughts, and what we can read on the basis that 90% of any search inside the internet goes through Google. But now, the Biden administration’s government is asking Google to tell them whoever searches certain phrases.

“I just read about this this week. This is a real concern.”

What McCarthy failed to mention, however, is that anyone on the internet can use whatever search engine they choose. Bing, Yahoo, DuckDuckGo, and dozens of other sites are also available, and since Republicans are so fond of saying that the “free market” should decide who wins and loses when it comes to competition, a person makes a decision whether or not he or she goes with Google.

Granted, there are legitimate privacy concerns that need to be addressed, but to suggest that Google is trying to control our thoughts is absolutely ridiculous.

Maybe one day Kevin McCarthy can have someone explain how to him how the internet works. Of course, he probably still wouldn’t understand.

Here’s the video from Fox News:

Fox News Fox News Lies U.S. Senate Veterans

Fox News Blasted For Suggesting Sen. Tammy Duckworth Improperly Used Veteran Benefits

Fox News likes to pretend they love the United States and support our men and women in the military, and yet they routinely take cheap shots at the current commander-in-chief, lie to their viewers about American foreign policy, and attack people such as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Mark Milley, for daring to speak his mind.

The latest proof that Fox is only interested in sensationalism comes from an article written and posted on the Fox News website by Dom Calicchio that carried this headline:

“Democrat Tammy Duckworth hasn’t paid property tax on her Illinois home since 2015, report says.”

Sen. Duckworth hasn’t paid property taxes on her Illinois home. That’s true, but the reason she hasn’t is because her state waives those taxes for disabled U.S. veterans. Duckworth lost both her legs and part of an arm while serving on active duty with the Army in Iraq. The helicopter she was piloting was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.

Yes, the Fox article does go on to note why Duckworth doesn’t pay property taxes, but the headline is pure clickbait and gives the impression that Fox was trying to slag the senator, Mediaite notes:

“As it were, Fox’s headline blatantly suggests that Duckworth is freeloading off of her state. Between that and the article’s admission that Duckworth is a disabled veteran who qualifies for the exemption, many news observers were deeply unimpressed by the article’s apparent framing as a hit piece.”

It didn’t take long before social media lit into Fox News for their misleading headline, with many veterans being among the most outraged by what the so-called “news network” had done:

Donald Trump Elections Fox News

Fox Calls Arizona For Biden Again –Trump Erupts With Impotent Rage

On Friday evening, hours after it was announced that a forensic audit of the vote in Arizona found no irregularities and actually uncovered more votes for President Joe Biden, Fox News called the state for Biden yet again.

Fox also called Arizona for Biden on election night back in November, which reportedly led to Trump demanding that they retract their report. But the network refused to bow to the former president and now, 10 months later, has been vindicated.

Just as he had back on election night, Trump once again began firing off angry missives. But since he has no access to Twitter or Facebook, he was forced to email his complaints to the media and supporters. Here’s a sampling of what he had to say:

“It is not even believable the dishonesty of the Fake News Media on the Arizona Audit results, which shows incomprehensible Fraud at an Election Changing level, many times more votes than is needed. The Fake News Media refuses to write the facts, thereby being complicit in the Crime of the Century.”

Did Trump provide any evidence of his claims? No. Because he has none. An audit conducted by people and groups loyal to him found that he lost the Grand Canyon State.

Despite having zero proof, Trump then demanded that Arizona decertify their election results, which isn’t going to happen:

“They are so dishonest, but Patriots know the truth! Arizona must immediately decertify their 2020 Presidential Election Results.

“Massive fraud was found in the Arizona Forensic Audit, sometimes referred to as ‘Fraudit.’ The numbers are Election Changing!”

Eight minutes later, there was this bit of drivel:

“I will be discussing the winning results of the Arizona Forensic Audit, which will show 44,000 possibly illegal ballots cast, tomorrow at the Great State of Georgia rally, which will be packed!”

Discuss it all you want, Donnie, but the election is over with, and so are the bogus audits. You lost. You’re a loser, just like your old man always told you when he had to bail you out time and time again because you’re such a terrible businessman.
