Fox News (FOXPEN)

What better way to end the day than with a reminder of why we do not watch Fox News?

FOXPEN (Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network)

Name that Rapper. Laura Ingraham

Now hear this! Poll Numbers fit for a Carnival tent ticket.

Watch Dobbs a day later..after you used that figurative carnival tent ticket. OOOOPS!

The following is an excerpt The Mashable: 12 major Fox News quality reports from 2018. Or, should I type a lack of quality reports?

Eric Trump's anti-semitic comment

In September, while appearing on Fox News, presidential son Eric Trump took a shot at legendary journalist Bob Woodward and his Trump-related book by saying it was just an effort "to make three extra shekels." No one in the Fox News studio batted an eyelash.
Why was this such a big deal? As Mashable's Morgan Sung wrote at the time about Trump's use of "shekel":
The word for Israeli currency is also a favorite of 4chan and other racist boards. The Daily Stormer, a white supremacist neo-Nazi Holocaust denial site, frequently uses "shekel" to describe anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. 
Unless you're either literally in Israel or spending a lot of time in these alt-right spaces, it's pretty unlikely that you'll even use "shekel" in your daily vocabulary.
If it was just a blind spot for everyone involved, then that is one hell of a shared blind spot. The comments are even worse given the that a month later, a gunman killed 11 people in a Pittsburgh synagogue while shouting anti-semitic slurs.

As Trump's World Turns: Gas Them, Sell It Via Fox News And Receive Accolades From the Base

Image result for gassed mother
Days after the US lobbed tear gas canisters into a neighboring nation, Reuters has published a video center around a now iconic image of a mother racing to remove her twin daughters from the gased area. Reuters piece linked, here.

It is impossible to imagine but a Trump Administration Border Patrol official actually said the tear gas used on the migrants was " for kids." 

BRANDON JUDD (PRESIDENT, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL) and two minutes of utter authoritarian garbage.  

Judd joined CNN host Briana Kielar. The host was absolutely remiss in failing to challenge words such as " for kids". 

Media Matters Excerpt 
BRIANNA KEILAR (HOST): Mexico is clamping down on the migrants who rushed the U.S. border yesterday, saying that they will deport around 500 people because of the violence. Now these are images, some of them, that are hard to ignore. You see here small children running from tear gas canisters that were shot into the crowd by U.S. Border Patrol agents. And here with me now is Brandon Judd, he's the president of the National Border Patrol Council, which is the organization for 16,000 border agents. You lead that organization. Just to be clear, your organization endorsed President Trump in 2016, you support his proposal to build a border wall. When you look at these pictures, I wonder what your reaction is. 
BRANDON JUDD (PRESIDENT, NATIONAL BORDER PATROL COUNCIL): My first reaction is what led up to this situation? And unfortunately what happened was a monstrous act took place. They started going towards the port of entry, then they broke off and they went east and went of the ports of entry to cross the border illegally. They pushed women and children up front and from behind the women and children, they started throwing projectiles at our agents, such as rocks, bottles, and even small concrete slabs. 
KEILAR: And were agents injured in that? 
JUDD: There were a couple agents that were hit. And once that happened, we then had to take into account the safety of everybody involved, not just the agents, but those people that are also south of the wall. It was determined to deploy tear gas to break up the crowd which is exactly what happened. We did not use any kinetic force. It was tear gas, which has been deemed to be safe even for children. We never want to see a child get hurt.

"It was tear gas, which has been deemed to be safe even for children!"

Trump's major media outlet, FOXPEN-Fox Propaganda And Entertainment Network, stood tall in support of a US President's gassing a group of human beings in another country., and against US Law.

Bum-rushing the border is a CHOICE and has consequences. Watching the USA FINALLY defend our borders was the HIGHLIGHT of my Thanksgiving weekend. 🙌🏼🙌🏼🙌🏼

Trump's Flag Dog Whistle Moves To Dangerous Elephant Policy (National Anthem)

No automatic alt text available.
Image may contain: text
The Daily Kos

Watch as Fox & Friends fuels Trump's authoritarianism regarding his dog whistle issue of NFL players (mostly black players) Taking a knee in protest against police brutality of black, boys, men and women.

Unfortunately, the video segment is over two minutes long I do not often expose you to Fox News more than a few seconds. This segment clearly shows the extent of pathetic shared between Fox News and Trump.

While on the topic of false patriotism and over-the-top nationalism, it was amazing to hear about Trumps lie laced commencement address at the Naval Academy.  

Writer Todd Harrison, Director of the Aerospace Security Project and Defense Budget Analysis at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), watched a two-minute portion of Trump's speech. Harrison gets a nod of credit as Trump isn't welcome on my TV sets. Harrison's two minutes far exceeds my exposure. I avoid a person who lies incessantly. Why sit for anyone to tell you lies if you know he lies at the level of a personal pathology. He can not help but lie.

Here is a short video clip from the Hill piece (linked below) in which Trump tells seven lies in two minutes.  Linked here.

Harrison's piece via the Hill, linked here.

So, we have Trump exciting his base with nationalist crap while simultaneously playing loose with information spoken to future naval officers.

Giuliani Alert: Hannity Paths Giuliani (Seemed To Fail) VIDEO

Follow The Circus 

Giuliani October 2016:
"We got a couple of surprises left," Giuliani said on FOX & Friends. "I call them surprises in the way that we’re going to campaign to get our message out there. Maybe in a little bit of a different way and you’ll see and I think it will be enormously effective. And I do think that all of these revelations about Hillary Clinton finally are beginning to have an impact."
Rudy Giuliani just before the 2016 General elections. It appeared The Trump surrogate and confidant possessed inside information regarding leaks and the FBI. Isn't it amazing how the former New York prosecutors went on Fox News and gloated like a kid with the largest marble stogy in the neighborhood? He seemed to relish in running his mouth while tickling the innards for Fox & Friends number one fan: Donald Trump.

As Trump finds himself sinking ever so deeply into an abyss created over the course of his life, his recent decision to appoint Rudy Giuliani to his legal team could prove the catalyst for dropping over the precipice. Giuliani visited Fox News's number one Trump propagandist for a lengthy interview. While being guided through a series of questions carefully crafted by Hannity (and his team) it seems the interview went off the rails.

We located a few great interview tidbits on the Twitter page of the prolific political poster and writer Aaron Rupar.
 19 hours ago19 hours agoMoreGiuliani on Trump being interview by Mueller: "Are they objective? A lot of things point in the direction that they think James Comey is telling the truth and not the president." Argues Trump was justified in firing Comey because he wouldn't say Trump wasn't a target.
 19 hours ago19 hours agoMoreGiuliani argues that the Mueller investigation is "totally tainted" because Comey "seems to be the core of their investigation" and he's "a disgraceful liar."
 19 hours ago19 hours agoMoreGiuliani is all in on discrediting James Comey, who he calls a "pathological liar." "I have the indignity of having hired him for his first big job and I'm embarrassed that I hired him him," he says.

 19 hours ago19 hours agoMoreGiuliani calls for Hillary Clinton to be imprisoned: "I'm sorry, Hillary, I know you're very disappointed you didn't win. But you're a criminal. Equal justice would mean you should go to jail. I do not know why the justice department is not investigating."

If you didn't follow broadcast related to Giuliani; visit to Hannity, here is a comprehensive accounting via the Aaron Rupar Twitter thread. Linked here. I scroll down through the past 17 hours to reach the point at which I secured the excerpts.

Ending Trump's Fox News Interview

Do you recall yesterday's, Fox & Friends: The Big Trump Interview?Thirty straight minutes of total unpresidential behavior which was actually unbecoming a whining teenager.

As the interview started and ended, the faces of the show hosts told it all.

Pictures are great for snapshot imagery; the video drives the horror of the interview home. Watch as the show hosts and producers realize...this isn't working well at all.

CNN's Jeanne Moss also ran a segment on "THE INTERVIEW". If you look close you can see the panic on the faces as the hosts whether hear "end the interview" in their earphones or across the screens of their laptops (watch Kilmeade). Train Wreck.
One more:

Think Progress published a piece regarding their perception Trump made two very serious legal errors in his Fox & Friends appearance.

Fox & Friends; Trump Unhinged Meltdown

I would give my presidency an A+

Early this morning Donald Trump sat for a phone segment with his preferred Fox News show: Fox & Friends. He sat for 30 full minutes while occupying virtually all of the talking minutes while rambling around like a fish out of water. Trump so obviously has many things to hide from public scrutiny, he cannot afford to sit back and allow legal proceedings to work to closure. The nation's 45th president must feed carnival barking rants to his supporters.

After Michael Cohen's living quarters and office were raided along with a warrant to search and siege, we have come to expect daily tweets and rants from a person who has much to hide.

We rarely post segments from Fox & Friends because we do not view nor do we consider Fox a news network. The following segment has been embed to facilitate skipping trough Trump feed to his base. It is completely whacked-out and embarrassing for a supposed leader of our nation. 

If you watched the full segment and came away without thought of a meltdown, you are too far gone into Trumpism for your personal sanity and safety.

During the early afternoon, MSN published a piece with yet another example of how Trump's thinking process and his related oratory have backfired.  His remarks may have blown a hole directly into an argument his attorneys have used on behalf of a review of the documents seized from Cohen. Trump's claim of little chance any Cohen documents show intimate interactions between he and Trump could be a defense killer.  A prosecutor's dream. (MSN)

Stormy Daniels' attorney tweeted about the Fox & Friends blunder.

Thank you for having Mr. Trump on this morning to discuss Michael Cohen and our case. Very informative.

The Daily GOP Ignominious: Conservative Frivolity Regarding The US Presidency (Trump's Daughter For VP!)

When asked by a dingy Fox & Friends host responding to the insanely unserious comment from a Tennessee Senator: Bob Corker, Donald Trump's son, Eric, went reality TV. He provided a response that while some will call joking, also provides a psychic inner core that does not befit nor match the seriousness presidential elections.

Corker sommented a coupe of days back that Trump's daighter Ivnaka coud be his vie preseidnal candidae.    
“Fox & Friends,” with the nation's absolute most intellectually deficient morning show host, host Steve Doocy, “She’s got the beautiful looks, right? She’s got — she’s smart, she’s smart, smart, smart. … She’s certainly got my vote.”
Ivanka as VP?

The fact that Trump (the younger) joins Fox News jesting about the Us Presidency, I think it notable a US Senator enticed the insanity.

While I am not one to partake in conspiracy theories and witch hunts, I am coy enough of Trump to wonder if he didn't deliver the message via the opportunist corker.  Let's face the fact many decisions in Washington DC are accompanied by floating consideration to gauge public's sentiment.  

Would the prospect of Trump floating the Ivanka thought via Corker? Think again; he asserted this week that Saddam was good for getting rid of terrorists (thus a good leader). He also asserted Hillary Clinton bribed Atty. General Lynch regarding the closing FBI email investigation. 

Don't underestimate the thought process and power of one Donald Trump Also, don't under estiamte the power inherent in billionaire status and the prospect of buying what one needs to "get over." Especially if swaths of the pubic are inclined towards reality TV .worship. From another perspective, would the prospect a payday enticement of a US Senator and subsequent compliance be a surprise?
