Rachel Maddow Fractures Fox News For Hawking a Horse Dewormer as a COVID Cure

Apparently it wasn’t bad enough that Fox News contributed to tens of thousands of deaths, and even more severe illnesses, by downplaying the severity of the coronavirus as a flu or a hoax. And apparently they weren’t satisfied with the suffering they’ve caused by convincing their glassy-eyed viewers that vaccines either aren’t necessary, or don’t work, or are constraints on their freedom imposed by autocrats intent on enslaving them.

Fox News, Cov-Aid

Fox’s efforts have led to what can now be accurately designated the Pandemic of Fox News.” Their primetime purveyors of pandemic bullpucky are clearly determined to propagate even more pain.

To that end Fox News began prescribing another phony cure for the plague that they’ve been reluctant to admit exists. Despite the potential for having a positive impact on their audience, Fox continues to prove that they just don’t care. Previously they tried hype hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malarial drug for which there is no evidence of efficacy treating COVID, other than the grossly misinformed word of Donald Trump. But now they’ve moved on to Ivermectin, a horse dewormer.

Yes, you read that right. And you aren’t the only one to be stunned by the sheer idiocy of this media quackery. When MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow heard about it she launched into a righteous condemnation of both the reckless advice and the Fox News advisors (video below):

“The Mississippi State Department of Health confirming today that ‘At least 70% of the recent calls to poison control in Mississippi have been related to livestock or animal formulations of Ivermectin, purchased at livestock supply centers.

“Why are people taking livestock formulations of Ivermectin Mississippi? That’s a horse dewormer. Literally, people won’t take the vaccine because they’re super suspicious of that, but they’re taking horse deworming medication that they’re buying at a feed store? For COVID? Why, on top of everything else Mississippi has to deal with right now, why are they dealing with this? I don’t know, but I have a guess.”

Whereupon Maddow plays clips of the three Fox News primetime hosts peddling Ivermectin to their viewers:

Laura Ingraham: We know that our FDA has in many ways failed us by not allowing for the use of Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine, both of which are used around the world to reduce COVID hospitalizations and death.
Sean Hannity: I pelted them with questions about COVID-19 and the vaccine and therapeutics hydroxychloroquine, Ivermectin … as well as other proactive treatments and practices that are already helping COVID -19 patients all across the country.
Tucker Carlson: On June 5th [Bret] Weinstein discussed the benefits of a drug called Ivermectin, which can and is used around the world to treat and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Maddow then points out that there has only been one “significant” study connecting Ivermectin to COVID, but that it was withdrawn “because the data in it was apparently faked and the introduction to it was apparently plagiarized.” To date, no one on Fox News has withdrawn their advocacy of the drug. As Maddow noted in her closing…

“Nevertheless, Fox News is busy saying, ‘Don’t take the vaccine, but do take this horse deworming medication, trust us, it is proven.’ You could trust them or you could trust the FDA that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Or the NIH that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Or the WHO that says ‘Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.’ Even the company that makes the drug that says ‘My god, seriously people. Do not take Ivermectin for COVID.'”

You might think that that would finally be enough for Fox News to step back and retract their potentially lethal “reporting.” If so, you just know Fox News.

Lindsey Graham Exposes His Impeachment Hypocrisies as He Attacks Biden on Fox News

There are few people in American politics who are more obsequious sycophants or shameless hypocrites than South Carolina’s senior senator Lindsey Graham. For example, today Graham is a groveling toady for Donald Trump, but during the 2016 presidential election he referred to Trump as a “jackass,” and “a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot,” who “doesn’t have the temperament or judgement to be commander in chief.”

Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump

Graham is, after all, the guy who said of candidate Trump “I think he’s a kook. I think he’s crazy. I think he’s unfit for office.” But a year later Graham complained about Trump’s critics in the press calling him “some kind of kook, not fit to be president.” This video never gets old…

On Friday Graham appeared on Fox News and demonstrated his Olympic-grade ability to flip-flop as he attacked his former friend, Joe Biden. The topic of discussion was the arduous evacuation of Americans and others from Afghanistan. However, his appraisal was rife with fantastical visions of dire circumstances that did not exist in reality. He told his Fox Friends that…

“If we leave one American behind, if we don’t get all those Afghans who stepped up to the plate to help us out, then Joe Biden, in my view has committed a high crime and misdemeanor under the Constitution and should be impeached.”

Graham is deliberately setting up a scenario for failure based on his partisan political hopes rather than the facts on the ground or any genuine concern for the wellbeing of either Americans or Afghans. And he is rushing to place blame on President Biden for problems that have not, and likely will not occur.

Never mind that it was Trump’s malfeasance and incompetence that set the stage for what’s happening now in Afghanistan. Trump’s own Defense secretary, Mark Esper, said that Trump “undermined” the deal with the Taliban. And his national security adviser, General H.R. McMaster, derisively described Trump’s deal as “capitulation,” and a “surrender agreement.”

Graham’s sudden craving for an impeachment is another one of his partisan backflips. While he’s itching to impeach Biden without even the pretense of rational grounds, he voted against impeaching Trump for actual crimes against America – twice. And his preposterous justification for those votes was that “I firmly believe impeachment would further destroy our ability to heal and start over.”

Even more bizarre was Graham’s recent threat to impeach Vice-President Kamala Harris based on an easily provable lie, saying that, “I don’t know how Kamala Harris doesn’t get impeached if Republicans take over the House.” Which is just another crucial reason to vote against every Republican for any office.

Graham clearly has an impeachment fetish, but only when it concerns innocent Democrats. However, he’s happy to forgive his Dear Leader for flagrantly impeachable misconduct. What’s more, Graham is willing to betray his longtime friends in order to achieve his sinister goals.

Remember, both of Trump’s impeachments were over his deranged obsession with destroying Joe Biden. In the first, Trump was found to have pressured the president of Ukraine to dig up nonexistent dirt on Biden. In the second, Trump incited a violent insurrection to overturn the will of the people and prevent the certification of Biden’s electoral victory.

At this point it would safe to disregard Graham as a hyper-partisan, bootlicking, fraud, who will sell out his party, his country, and his soul for a smattering of crumbs from his messiah, Donald Trump. After all the turmoil of the Trump years, Graham still believes that the Republican Party “can’t grow without him.” And he worshipfully declared his desire to “harness the magic” of Trump’s “movement,” while ignoring his “dark side.” Which is something he could just as easily have said about Satan.
