Not content to call President Joe Biden senile or accuse him of supporting “socialist” policies, the gang at Fox News are now trying to create a scandal involving the way Vice President Kamala Harris shook hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in, which they reported thusly on their website:
“Many Americans have become more germ-conscious since the start of the coronavirus pandemic last year – but Vice President Kamala Harris may have made her apparent concerns too conspicuous.
“Harris was caught on camera Friday immediately wiping her right hand on her jacket after shaking hands with South Korean President Moon Jae-in at the White House.”
As “proof” that Harris had indeed insulted the South Korean leader, Fox cited a Twitter account with 208 followers that was created in March of this year. How’s that for credibility!
This so-called dissing of the South Korean leader is merely the latest horrific faux pas made by the VP, according to Fox, which also referred to videos of her not saluting military personnel while boarding a plane:
One tiny problem, however: Harris has saluted the troops when boarding a flight, so that sort of destroys Fox’s supporting evidence:
Handshake issue put to rest, right? Oh no! Fox couldn’t let it alone, even going so far as to devote an entire segment to the matter on “Outnumbered,” their blatantly sexist attempt at T&A where several female co-hosts debate issues with one man. Apparently that’s what passes for enlightened conversation at Rupert Murdoch’s network.
Host Rowan Dean was practically giddy as he lit into the Vice President:
Trump did even worse. He saluted a North Korean officer while conducting a propaganda summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un:
Where was the Fox News outrage over that? All we got was crickets from them when it transpired.
The real crime Kamala Harris has committed that outrages Fox and their right-wing viewers the most is her audacity for being a smart, strong woman of color. That’s the biggest crime of all to a conservative.
