There is a heaping helping of chutzpah among the propaganda purveyors at Fox News. It isn’t just their shameless propagation of lies and right-wing conspiracy theories. It’s how arrogantly they present the phony tales of Democratic misconduct, while pretending that Trump and his Republican confederates are as pure as the driven snow.
On Friday’s episode of The Five on Fox News, co-host Dagen McDowell introduced a segment on the already aging story of Hunter Biden selling his artwork for surprisingly large sums. It’s a subject that they are obsessed with, having covered it just last month with their customary focus on lies, rumors, and baseless innuendo. But apparently that didn’t satisfy the Fivers.
The difference this time was that the panel was joined by Jessica Tarlov, who took exception to the hypocritical harangues of her co-hosts. Tarlov eventually found an opening to say that…
“We cannot have this conversation and completely ignore the fact that Trump children, Ivanka and Jared, according to Citizens for Ethics Investigations, made hundreds of millions of dollars while they were serving in government posts.”
At which point Jesse Watters prepared to make the first of multiple interruptions to prevent Tarlov from finishing her point. But she persisted…
“No Jesse, don’t put your hands up. She got dozens of trademarks, including three preliminary trademarks that she campaigned for at Mar-a -Lago.”

Watching Tarlov so righteously condemn the Trump family for their sleazy self-dealing was a rare spectacle on Fox News. She pointed out that Jared and Ivanka’s misconduct occurred while they held official White House posts. Hunter Biden, on the other hand, is a private citizen with no political sway and is entitled to pursue whatever career he chooses. It was predictable that this sort of honesty on Fox would not be permitted for very long.
As expected, McDowell quickly broke in to say that “We’ve gotta go.” But Tarlov was heated up and unstoppable. She continued while the other co-hosts talked over her, hoping to silence this unauthorized truth-telling. Co-host Katie Pavlich had the audacity to accuse Tarlov of “deflecting” when that’s all that the other co-hosts were doing from the moment she began talking.
In fact, the entire segment was a deflection from the corruption that was rampant in Donald Trump’s administration. Just this week Tom Barrack, a close ally of Trump, who chaired his inauguration committee, was arrested on charges of breaching the Foreign Agents Registration Act. He was indicted for lobbying Trump on behalf of the United Arab Emirates while Trump was running for and serving as president. And there were at least ten other felony indictments of Trump associates during his single term in office.
Fox News has also refused to report on Trump’s brazen profiteering while president, including charging taxpayers for accommodations at his hotels and golf resorts for family, staff, members of Congress, Secret Service, political organizations, and yes, even foreign operatives with business before the U.S. government. And Fox has failed to cover Trump ripping off his donors to line his own pockets.
So despite the fact that Trump has largely abandoned Fox News due to his impression that they haven’t been sufficiently worshipful, Fox continues to purse their lips and kiss his … let’s say ring. Consequently, it will be interesting to see if a disobedient liberal like Tarlov still has a job with Fox tomorrow.

You’re about an idiot if you believe in the fantasies that roll around in that huge empty head of yours
Not a word of what was said here was fantasy at all. Sad to say, is verifiable & true!
Besides, that would make for pretty lousy fantasies ~ Don’t know about you or anyone else, but shouldn’t fantasies be about “feels good” things?
I know mine are.
I don’t think Ms. Tarlov will be seen on FauxNotNews for some time to come. Truthfulness is simply NOT acceptable on FPN! Maybe she didn’t read fine print on her contract!?
Barrack’s $250 million bail, set a record for highest bail ever, due to his ability to easily escape to countries we don’t have extradition agreements with… like, Saudi Arabia & UAE, for example. That & he’s facing multiple charges & a decade or more in Club Fed; prob’ly some sky-high fines too, if convicted!
“…refused to report on Trump’s brazen profiteering while president, including charging taxpayers for accommodations at his hotels and golf resorts for family, staff, members of Congress, Secret Service, political organizations, and yes, even foreign operatives with business before the U.S. government.”
WTH?!! Why are taxpayers stuck paying the tab for Trump’s family +”friends”, political orgs & even foreign operatives, to stay at Trump-owned resorts?? I know we have to pay for his Secret Service detail + personal ass-wipers, etc., everywhere he goes; luxurious transportation, food, drink & all that goes with it too. That’s “normal”. Quite expensive, since he was always going on leisure trips, campaign rallies & such! He abuses the privileges given him, then & now — like any common grifter. Emolluments Clause, like most laws, didn’t seem to apply to him – thanks to GOP & Billy Barr. (Too bad cuz’ this shit is just what it’s meant to prevent!) Constantly going to his own resorts with his security detail, etc. & charging us “top dollar” for it all, is bad enuff & we’ve asked, but not been told, how much all those frequent golf trips cost us taxpayers? The fact that he made so much money from us by taking these unnecessary trips to his own resort, for fun, was brazen violation of law. That’s bad enuff!
But, since when do we pay for his family & friends to go on “jaunts” & watch him cheat at golf? Are you saying that we also paid when political orgz & various people, foreign entities, went there wanting to discuss doing biz with him?!?
His secret mtgs with foreign entities at Mar-a-lago ~ his personal golf resort & now, his home too ~ did U.S. taxpayers pay for all those people to be there? Why?? Usually, such meetings are held at WH, or Camp David — both are secure & appropriate venues to be used for such things. Proper protocol is maintained at minimal cost to taxpayers. The Prez does NOT profit personally from it. I don’t think we usually foot the bill for everyone who wants to go, do we?
We need a full accounting of just how much we now owe (deficit) for the numerous golf trips & rallies, etc – & how much taxpayer money went into his pockets!
