SRSLY? Fox News Host Praises Trump’s Work Ethic Because ‘He Watches Every Show’

On the last full day of Donald Trump’s disastrous misadventures as the “president” of the States he tried so mightily to disunite, his “Friends” at Fox News went the extra mile to suck up to him in the most nauseating manner.

Trump in Bed, Eating, Sad

It’s one thing to defend his innumerable failures, or to attack his righteous critics, but what Ainsley Earhardt said on Tuesday morning’s episode of Fox and Friends sunk to a new low, which is a pretty remarkable feat for the “Curvy Couch” potatoes. In a segment wherein Earhardt sought to pay tribute to Trump’s alleged work ethic, she said that…

“They’ll criticize President Trump but no one can argue, he is a worker. He doesn’t drink alcohol, he stays up late at night, he watches every show, he’s working — he got to work immediately. And now Joe Biden is saying he’s gonna get to work on immigration on the first day in office. Some are criticizing him, like Sen. Cotton, for focusing on this issue instead of the pandemic.”

Where to begin with this lunatic rhapsody? How about the fact that Trump is the most notoriously lazy White House occupant in modern times. He has accomplished almost nothing in four years. He didn’t build a wall that Mexico paid for. He never delivered the healthcare plan he promised every two weeks. He forgot that every week was infrastructure week. The only significant legislation that he had a hand in passing was to give the wealthy undeserved tax cuts, and shifting the burden to average Americans. And worst of all, he did nothing about the deadly coronavirus pandemic that has taken the lives of 400,000 Americans.

Earhardt may be impressed that Trump doesn’t drink alcohol. But she didn’t bother to mention his dependency on pharmaceuticals like Adderall. She also thinks his insomnia is something to be praised. Who cares if he’s up all night if all he is doing is tweeting out insults, lies, and other assorted nonsense?

Worst of all is Earhardt’s asinine appreciation for the fact that Trump “watches every show.” REALLY? What exactly does she think is praiseworthy about that? Trump is reported to watch as much as eight hours of television every day. And most of that is Fox News or some other Trump-fluffing outlet that satisfies his elephantine ego. Someone needs to break it to Ainsley that that is not working.

Notice that Earhardt doesn’t cite a single issue with which Trump’s supposedly hard work produced any success. There’s a good reason for that. However, she does mention criticism from wingnut Republican Sen. Tom Cotton. But even that is flagrantly false. While Biden does plan to send Congress a comprehensive immigration bill – an important goal that has stumped three previous administrations – it is not an issue that Biden has focused on to the exclusion of everything else.

In particular, Biden has stated several times that the COVID-19 pandemic is his top priority. He has already developed a plan for combatting the virus, for accelerating the vaccine distribution, and for providing economic stimulus and relief to the long-suffering American people who Trump ignored and fatally misled for so many months.

In short, Earhardt’s commentary was pitifully wrong in every respect. Which is surely why she remains a regular on the network that has no use for facts, logic, compassion, or fairness or balance either. She is right at home with confederates like Tucker Carlson, who is striving to incite more violence. And she is comfortable on a network that would promote other shameless propagandists like herself. It’s what Fox News was founded to do.

Tucker Carlson of Fox News is Determined to Incite More Trump Riots in DC

On January 6th, a savage horde of treasonous Trump cult disciples assaulted the Congress of the United States in an attempt to install Trump as the leader of a white nationalist dictatorship. They battered down doors, broke windows, stole and destroyed property, and called for the execution of Democratic – and even some Republican – representatives. They failed … this time.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Donald Trump

Not satisfied with having ransacked the seat of American democracy, killing at least five people, and sullying the reputation of the nation, Fox News assigned their Senior White Supremacist, Tucker Carlson, the task of reassembling Trump’s Traitors for another attempt at their seditionist uprising. He not only declined to condemn the vicious, anti-American insurrectionists, he explicitly encouraged them. This is further evidence that Fox news is actually getting worse in the post-Trump era. Even James Murdoch (son of Fox News boss, Rupert) recognizes the “toxic lies” and “disinformation” propagated by Fox.

On Carlson’s Monday hate-fest (video below), he maligned the National Guard troops assigned to protect the city from further violence by the fascist brigades of Trumpism. He characterized their deployment as a “military occupation,” and, in a fit of utter lunacy, implied that their presence was the result of “Republicans hav[ing] spent years ignoring the leftward drift of our officer corps.” Carlson’s rant was rife with rancid rhetoric such as…

“No matter what they are telling you, those 26,000 federal troops are not there for your safety. Instead, unmistakably, the Democratic Party is using those troops to send the rest of us a message about power. We are in charge now. We run this nation from Honolulu to our colony in the Caribbean and everything in between, very much including where you and your family live. Do not question us. Men with guns enforce our decrees. We control the Pentagon.”

These are the blatant scare tactics of totalitarians. His use of language like “No matter what they are telling you…” is purposefully chosen to ensure that you only believe the propaganda being spread by Carlson and Fox News. They want the American people to fear their own protectors who were brought in to prevent another nauseating spectacle like the one that occurred on January 6th, and which the whole world witnessed in horror.

Carlson and Fox News are actually rooting for another round of insurrection against the nation and the Constitution. And they are making villains of our patriotic sons and daughters in uniform, while ignoring the lawless, gun-toting militias working to overthrow the government. Carlson elaborated…

“Democrats in Congress demanded that the troops sent to Washington this week submit to a political purity test – ideological vetting as they put it – to make sure that every soldier profess loyalty to the new regime. Not loyalty to our our country. Not loyalty to our our Constitution. But loyalty to the aims of a specific political party.”

Carlson is lying through his treasonous teeth. Democrats in Congress had nothing to do with the vetting of the troops. And there were no “purity tests” or “loyalty” oaths to political parties. Carlson and Fox News know that. However, there were reports of potential insider threats by far-right extremists circulating among law enforcement officials. Consequently, they employed routine measures to ensure the safety of the troops and the public. The truth, as reported by the Associated Press, was that…

“U.S. defense officials say they are worried about an insider attack or other threat from service members involved in securing President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration, prompting the FBI to vet all of the 25,000 National Guard troops coming into Washington for the event.”

Note that those involved in making these decisions were Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy (a Trump appointee), who reported to Acting Secretary of Defense Mark Esper (a Trump appointee), who conferred with the FBI that is conducting the vetting and is headed by Christopher Wray (a Trump appointee). And all of them were confirmed by the Senate that, at the time of their confirmation, was controlled by a Republican majority led by GOP Senate leader Mitch McConnell. So obviously it’s a Democratic plot.

That’s the core of the conspiracy over which Carlson and Fox News are generating this hysteria. And it is all wrapped in the hypocrisy of Carlson’s anti-law enforcement tirade. But Carlson, Trump, Fox News, and the GOP have apparently forgotten that they were staunch advocates of National Guard deployments during the Black Lives Matter protests last summer. True to his racist form, Carlson supports the oppression of mostly peaceful people of color, but he abhors any restraints on the aggressively violent white nationalists with whom he identifies. And the result is this sort of rabid diatribe that seeks to turn the American people against the military heroes they once pretended to admire.

Fox News Primetime Doubles Down on Crazy After Trump Seditionists Assault Congress

So where does an ultra-conservative television network go after the loathsome president they propped up for four years is cast out of office by a decisive majority of the American people? Well, if you’re Fox News you go shopping for programming that is even more radically right-wing and overtly offensive.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Fox News, Maria Bartiromo, Donald Trump

That’s the path that was recently announced by Fox’s management following the humiliating loss by Donald Trump to Joe Biden last November. Fox News struggled to maintain their support for the twice-impeached Trump with brazenly dishonest propaganda. They aided and abetted his relentless attempts to spread blatant lies about election fraud, despite having no evidence. Even after Trump was caught provoking a seditionist assault against Congress, and aligning himself with the conspiracy crackpots who orchestrated and carried out the assault, Fox News continued to back him up. That’s what he gets for favoring them with nearly exclusive rights to his softball interviews for four years.

Now Fox News is pondering its future in the wake of a season of ratings declines. For the first time in years, Fox finds itself in third place after CNN and MSNBC. And this isn’t a fleeting moment in the cable news game. Fox’s ratings have been in freefall since the November 3rd election. Along with the audience’s dissatisfaction, Fox has also picked some competition from newcomers, Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN). So the patriarch of the Fox media empire, Rupert Murdoch, has retaken the reins from his son Lachlan to reimpose the extremist wingnuttery that he believes put Fox at the head of the cable news class.

NOTE: Murdoch’s other son, James, is not exactly on board. He recently released a public statement condemning the “toxic politics” and “disinformation” of “propagators of lies.” He didn’t actually cite Fox News, but his description made the connection unavaidable.

The result of Murdoch’s intervention is a new program anchoring their primetime schedule. It’s called simply “Fox News Primetime.” They probably paid a marketing consultant a fortune to come up with that. But that isn’t the worst of their problems.

The program will launch with a rotating cast of temporary hosts. The first week will have Brian Kilmeade of Fox and Friends in the anchor’s seat. He will be followed by Maria Bartiromo, Katie Pavlich, Mark Steyn, Rachel Campos-Duffy, and former U.S. Representative Trey Gowdy. What they all have in common is that they are all white wingers with an unflinching devotion to conservative politics in general and Trump in particular.

While each of them have earned their own disrepute as individuals, Bartiromo has distinguished herself as Fox’s Senior Trump-fluffer. No one on the network comes to close her drooling sycophancy. So handing her a spot in primetime signals that Fox News is determined to own the rabid wing of the Republican Party. In other words… Same as it ever was.

President Snowflake: For 4 Years Trump Rarely Strayed From His Fox News Safe Place

The calamitous era of Donald Trump is coming to just the sort of ignoble end that was easily predictable based on his contemptible record of hate, dishonesty, greed, negligence, incompetence, and malignant narcissism. Trump was, and is, a sociopath who never cared a whit for America or the American people.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump TV Set

Now in his final days, Trump has sequestered himself in his White House bunker, refusing to honor even the most trifling presidential duties or traditions. He has been invisible to the public for six straight days. That’s actually quite a feat for someone so notoriously egomaniacal. It speaks to the agonizing degree of despondency he must be suffering. And it cannot be due merely to his banishment from Twitter, which is surely gnawing at him, because he has all of the other communications resources available to any president. Although his Twitter absence has resulted in a major improvement of the Internet with a 73% decline in misinformation since his involuntary exit.

Trump’s uncharacteristic withdrawal from the attention he craves is further evidence of his innate cowardice. He simply can’t face the world before which he has been humiliated as the loser he has always been. It’s ironic that Trump’s cult disciples have regarded him as a courageous fighter for principles in which he never believed. The truth has always been apparent that he is a sniveling coward who fears any circumstance that he can’t control.

That fact is evident nowhere more than in his fear of the free press. Trump has spent the last four years manically assaulting the media as “the enemy of the people.” However, he has also steadfastly avoided confrontation with any reputable journalist whenever possible. And now that his term in office is over, the extent of his seething fear has been documented by presidential chronicler Mark Knoller:

This chart puts Trump’s media phobia into stark perspective. He was plainly too frightened to venture outside of the comfort zone that he knew awaited him at Fox News. The bootlicking sycophants at Fox promised him a free ride as well as shelter from the free press. Consequently, he spent the vast majority of his time granting softball “interviews” to suck-ups like Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Lou Dobbs, Maria Bartiromo, and the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends. He never once granted an interview to CNN, which is the first time in the network’s history that it didn’t interview a president.

This Fox favoritism came at the same time that Trump wavered between an ardent affection for his Fox protectorate and seething animosity for the network if they ever faltered by slipping in a tender criticism. His love/hate relationship with Fox occasionally resulted in blistering attacks declaring that Fox News is dead and that his cult followers should quit watching and switch to the even more obsequious Newsmax or One America Network (OANN).

So Trump is fleeing the presidency with the same gutless trepidation that he demonstrated from the start. He shrunk from any confrontation because he knew deep down that he wasn’t up to the fight. And losing would be too mortifying to contemplate. And those are the same reasons that he is now retreating from public view. He is the consummate coward, which will remain a key component of his loathsome legacy forever.

Crybaby Trump ‘Can’t Say Anything’ Due to Twitter Takedown, Whines Flack on Fox News

Donald Trump has maintained a virtual radio silence ever since his marauding horde of seditionists assaulted Congress on January 6th. It’s safe to assume he is pouting in his pantry with bags of Cheetos and watching reruns of his favorite parts of the riots as his cult disciples vandalized the Capitol and beat up law enforcement officers.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump

The timeline of events now clearly shows that Trump waited hours before posting his disingenuous video asking his Troll Troops to go home and telling them that he loves them as they were ransacking America’s seat of democracy. We also know that he refused to deploy the National Guard to protect members of Congress and his own Vice-President, Mike Pence.

In defense of his deliberate negligence, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley was dispatched to Fox News to explain why Trump failed so miserably to react in a responsible manner that might have saved as many as five lives. Gidley blamed the media, telling Fox’s media correspondent Howard Kurtz that…

“The media are trying to have it both ways. On one hand he should be censored by ‘Big Tech’ and not be allowed to talk. He also shouldn’t say anything because it’s divisive. And then when he doesn’t say anything, and can’t say anything, because the platforms have removed him, they say ‘Where’s the President? Why aren’t we hearing from him?’ The whole thing’s disingenuous.”

First of all, it isn’t up to the media whether “Big Tech” suspends Trump’s posting privileges when he repeatedly violates their terms of service by advocating violence and disseminating harmful lies. It’s Trump’s responsibility to follow the rules, which he was warned about more than a hundred times. Secondly, Gidley’s complaint that Trump might be regarded as divisive is also within Trump’s sole control. In fact, he intends to be divisive.

However, the most preposterous point that Gidley proffered was the one where he claimed that Trump “can’t say anything” because Twitter suspended his account. Someone really needs to tell Gidley – and Trump – that the White House has a massive press operation that is specifically designed to put messages out to the public. They can even use more than 140 characters. What’s more, Trump has a right-wing media menu of outlets like Fox News, One America News Network (OANN), and Newsmax, to spread whatever falsehoods are clawing to get loose from their diseased craniums.

RELATED: Study Proves that Banishing Trump From Twitter Improved the Internet 73%

It’s notable that Gidley was asserting these accusatory grievances to the millions of viewers on Fox News as he was whining about having no outlet. So he knows that that channel for communications is available. Trump, however, hasn’t even made one of his self-serving phone-in interviews with the bootlickers on Fox and Friends to defend himself. it’s also notable that Kurtz didn’t bother to refute Gidley’s ludicrous claims as to Trump’s alleged inability to communicate with the public.

If the media is asking “Where’s the President,” it’s because Trump himself has decided to go into hiding in the final days of his failed term because he has no discernable excuse for the damage caused by his incompetence and malfeasance. And it’s clear that his spokesman isn’t any better able to make excuses for him either. And the same goes for Trump’s Fox News apologists. This is what the end looks like for a narcissistic sociopath with the emotional maturity of a six year old.

Study Proves that Banishing Trump From Twitter Improved the Internet 73%

On January 8th, two days after the Donald Trump Insurrectionists assaulted Congress, Twitter finally suspended his account. It was a long overdue action to prevent him from inciting further violence and disseminating ever more preposterous and self-serving lies. Unfortunately, it came after five deaths and the desecration of America’s seat of democracy.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump, Twitter

Trump got away with exploiting social media for years, where he recklessly radicalized an intellectually challenged and emotionally vulnerable confederacy of conspiracy crackpots. He deftly manipulated them to serve his own brazenly selfish and nefarious purposes. It culminated in the riots in Washington that Trump’s deliberately inflammatory rhetoric triggered.

However, that is not the end of the story. Trump will surely continue to advance his egomaniacal aspirations. And he will be aided and abetted by Fox News. On Saturday evening, Fox’s Senior Trump-Fluffer, “Judge” Jeannine Pirro, hosted the Republican’s leading propagator of political cowplop, Jim Jordan. This excerpt from their discussion is illustrative of the deranged mindset on the right:

Pirro: To limit those who are Republicans, to literally get them off the Internet, Facebook and Twitter. I mean there is basically, not just a removal of free speech, but it is a removal of our freedom.
Jordan: Yeah. This cancel culture is dangerous. It’s the most dangerous thing going

That’s right. Removing Trump from Twitter is “the most dangerous thing going.” Clearly more dangerous than the deadly rioters that Trump incited with his incendiary and delusional tweets about election fraud. And far more dangerous than the coronavirus that Trump downplayed and allowed to spread unchecked, killing 400,000 Americans.

Fox News would never engage in that sort of “cancel culture.” Well, except that they have totally refused to give me any airtime to reveal how dishonest and dangerous they are. I mean, what’s up with that? They are removing, not just my right to free speech, but my freedom.

And it’s not like Trump deserves this online suppression. Has he ever “cancelled” anyone? Well, you know, other than cancelling Fox News whenever they have been less than unconditionally adoring or insufficiently flattering for his elephantine ego. If Fox ever permits a Trump critic to speak – even if just momentarily so they can prepare an attack – Trump immediately whines that Fox News is dead and insists that everyone stop watching and switch to even more worshipful channels like OANN or Newsmax.

What Jordan, Pirro, and Fox News continue to fail to understand is that the free speech protections in the Constitution only prohibit government censorship. Twitter is a private company with stated rules that users must comply with. They include refraining from advocating violence and disseminating falsehoods that could result in harm. Trump violated those rules regularly.

The evidence of the harm Trump caused was recently documented in a study that found that after Twitter banned Trump, “online misinformation about election fraud plunged 73 percent.” That’s a pretty revealing statistic that attests to the hypnotic influence Trump has on his cult disciples. It isn’t just an accounting of his Twitter activity, but the combined effect of the retweets and other regurgitation on the part of Trump’s followers.

The fact that Trump’s absence from Twitter and Facebook can have this profound an impact on the disinformation that circulates online is justification for removing him and any other party that seeks to mislead the public in ways that produce violence and tangible trauma to society at large. And that being the case, how about we do Fox News next?

James Murdoch Scorches the ‘Disinformation’ and ‘Toxic Politics’ of… Fox News?

Last week the militant flank of Donald trump’s cult brigades mounted a seditious assault on the Congress of the United States. Their mission was to disrupt the legislative branch of government from performing its constitutional duty to certify the results of the presidential election. Their orders came from Trump himself who was intent on overturning the will of the American people and declaring himself the de facto dictator of the country.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Fox News, Titanic

Trump’s plot was a predictable failure, like pretty much everything else he attempts. But it still produced significant harm as at least five people were killed, and untold more injured. And that isn’t counting the harm it did to the nation’s reputation and faith in democracy.

However, this violent and unpatriotic insurrection didn’t happen in a political vacuum. It was whipped into a manic state of irrational fury by the relentless provocation of Trump, who devoted months to persuading his cult disciples to ignore reality and to disbelieve the facts about the election that he lost decisively to Joe Biden.

Trump was aided and abetted by an ultra-conservative pack of media shills who parroted his delusional assertions of election fraud. And that media contingent was led, as usual, by Fox News. Sycophantic bootlickers like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Maria Bartiromo, Lou Dobbs, Jeanine Pirro and the “Curvy Couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends, all contributed to the flagrant flurry of falsehoods that buttressed Trump’s attempted coup.

The traitorous rhetoric disgorged by Fox News was produced and sanctioned by the family of Rupert Murdoch that controls the company. The patriarch, Rupert, still serves as chairman of the media empire. His son Lachlan is the current CEO. And their hand-picked executive team carries out their orders to advance the rightist dogma of the Trump-led Republican Party.

Rupert’s other son, James, has set himself apart from any operational role in the family business. Although he is still a major stockholder and sits on the board of directors. However, he appears to have somewhat less extremist conservative positions. And that was evident in his remarks following the Capitol riots:

“The damage is profound. The sacking of the Capitol is proof positive that what we thought was dangerous is indeed very much so. Those outlets that propagate lies to their audience have unleashed insidious and uncontrollable forces that will be with us for years. […]

“Spreading disinformation – whether about the election, public health or climate change – has real world consequences. Many media property owners have as much responsibility as the elected officials who know the truth but instead choose to propagate lies. We hope the awful scenes we have all been seeing will finally convince those enablers to repudiate the toxic politics they have promoted once and forever.”

James Murdoch nimbly avoided naming names in his commentary. But it’s difficult to imagine anyone other than Fox News when he cites “those outlets that propagate lies.” Fox News has long been the foremost offender among media sources that were “spreading disinformation” about “the election, public health or climate change.” So when brother James condemns the “media property owners … who know the truth but instead choose to propagate lies,” it’s impossible to believe that he isn’t referring to his father Rupert, and his brother Lachlan.

And James is right about the persistent damage caused by the purposeful dishonesty of his family of propagandists. They enabled both Trump and the hordes he commanded into the service of his totalitarian aspirations. His statement is a profound condemnation of a media Firestarter bent on burning down the foundation of American democracy.

However, what will James do about it going forward? As a board member and stockholder he has considerable clout in shaping the future direction of the company. And he has both ethical and financial arguments for insisting on major changes. After all, Fox News has taken a considerable hit in the ratings since the election on November 3rd. CNN has actually been beating Fox regularly since then. Even MSNBC has been outperforming Fox.

So now that Fox is languishing in third place it would be a good time to shake up their programming. The problem is that they have actually been getting worse and worse. They even announced recently that they will not broadcast an inaugural special on January 20th that is being carried by CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, and NBC. So if James wants to be taken seriously, he needs to do more than release statements to his pals in the press.

All the (Fake) Reasons Joe Biden Will Be a Worse President than Donald Trump

In less than a week Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the 46th President of the United States of America. Kamala Harris will become the first woman to serve as Vice-President. Many people are hopeful that they will undo much of the damage caused by the negligence, incompetence and deliberate malfeasance of Donald Trump and his right-wing Republican enablers in Congress and the press. That’s a monumental task. And, sadly, the lives lost to Trump’s mismanagement of the coronavirus can never be restored.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump, King

For his part, Trump will sink into the lowest state of despair and self pity to date for a sociopathic narcissist who resides in that mental state as a matter of routine. He is already planning his own pathetic farewell party because no one else cares enough to throw a party for him. What will stand as his final address to the American people – delivered following the storming of Congress by his traitorous insurrectionists – will be a video wherein he pleads for “common ground” with the racist, seditionist, violent, conspiracy crackpots who comprise his cult following.

Joe Biden, meanwhile, has his own problems. The nation has spent the last four years bombarded with Trump’s egomaniacal interruptions into their lives on a daily basis. They have probably forgotten the blissful times when they could go for weeks without hearing anything from the White House.

Biden is unlikely to be as obsessed with making himself the center of attention 24/7. And that isn’t the only downside to the Biden presidency. Compared to the unprecedented performance of Trump, Biden will be huge letdown. You know it, I know, Everyone knows it. What follows are just a few of the areas where Biden falls short of his glorious predecessor:

  • Only one ex-wife, and she’s dead
  • No Pillow Lobby representative
  • No experience bankrupting multiple businesses
  • Won’t appoint his unqualified children to White House jobs
  • Rejects “alternative facts”
  • Doesn’t golf
  • Has read and understands the Constitution
  • Hasn’t renounced Muslims, Mexicans, or other liberal commies
  • Believes America is already great
  • Respects the “enemy of the people” (aka free press)
  • Has never been spanked by a porn star
  • Two fewer impeachments than predecessor
  • Released decades of confidential tax returns
  • Prefers Tom Hanks and Beyoncé to Scott Baio and Ted Nugent
  • Evangelicals haven’t declared him “sent by God”
  • No plan to relieve the onerous tax burden of the rich
  • Doesn’t support “very fine people” (white nationalists and Nazis)
  • Owns not one, but two dogs
  • Favors clean air and water over corporate profits
  • Is not BFF with Vladimir Putin or Kim Jong Un
  • Not a single cabinet appointee vows to destroy their department
  • Hires lawyers who reject the legal principle that “truth isn’t truth.”
  • Is still allowed to tweet
  • Isn’t responsible for the deaths of 400,000 Americans
  • Doesn’t spend hours every day watching and regurgitating Fox News

These fatal personality flaws of Biden are the prelude to a fundamentally different country. Those who have worshipped Trump’s manly management style and embrace of the swamp politics of Washington, D.C., are going to be sorely disappointed when Biden brings to the White House the competence and compassion that Trump and his cult disciples have been trained to abhor.

Despite these drawbacks, the nation must somehow steady itself in the face of the certain turmoil that Biden will unleash. Four years from now the people will have another opportunity to restore hate and greed as the dominant values of Republican “leadership.” So long as American isn’t already a socialist sh*thole country by then, with national healthcare, free education, fair elections, an end to racial injustice, rolling back the climate crisis, and all the other horrors promised by those evil progressives.

Trump Plans His Own Ego-Soaked Farewell Party As His Approval Hits Record Low

In the few days left before Joe Biden is inaugurated the 46th President of the United States, Donald Trump is laying low, confined to the bunker in the White House. He has an empty calendar with no speeches, meetings, or Fox News interviews scheduled. So it’s likely that his last public address will the one he gave on January 6th, where he commanded his cult disciples to storm Congress, resulting in at least five deaths and his second impeachment.

Be sure to visit and follow News Corpse on Instagram.

Donald Trump Rally, Sieg Heil

Trump has already announced that he will not attend Biden’s inauguration. At one point he was considering staging a counter event to compete with the official ceremonies and to launch his 2024 campaign. But that appears to have been abandoned. Now, as he becomes increasingly despondent, Trump may be planning his own farewell to the White House that he always considered a dump. As reported by CNN’s Jim Acosta:

What a sad, pathetic shell of an impotent former reality TV game show host. If Trump goes though with this it will be ready-made for mockery and serve as a pre-written satirical script for Saturday Night Live. It would be impossible to keep from laughing while watching the biggest loser, who has twice the impeachments of any other president, paying tribute to himself as he flees Washington.

Just picture the spectacle of Trump luminaries like Kayleigh McEnany, Stephen Miller, Roger Stone, and Rudy Giuliani (if Trump decides to pay him), lined up on either side of an orange brocade runway holding MAGA banners aloft, and “You Can’t Always Get Want You Want” playing in the background. Naturally, it will be covered only by Fox News, with Sean Hannity and Maria Bartiromo providing commentary to accompany a parade of celebrities including Scott Baio, Jon Voight, Roseanne Barr, and Ted Nugent.

Perhaps Trump will produce a video to recall his “accomplishments” of the past four years: Separating hundreds of children from their parents; erecting about four miles of wall on the southern border that Mexico didn’t pay for; befouling the environment; making healthcare less accessible and more expensive; alienating international allies; and killing nearly 400,000 Americans via his incompetent mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a record of failure that will surely stand the test of time.

Trump’s self-exalting parade of narcissistic obsession will come at a time when his popularity reaches a record low. He has never approached 50% approval, but as he departs he just sunk to a dismal 29% in the Pew Research poll. The same poll found that a sizable majority of Americans (68%) “do not want Trump to remain a major political figure in the future.” About 76% (including 52% of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents) say that Trump “bears at least some responsibility” for the riots at the Capitol.

So it is in that light that Trump is anxious to throw himself a party to celebrate his own awesomeness. This is going to be received with the same thrill of being informed of a positive herpes diagnosis. And it will also be the prelude to the next chapter in Trump’s latest impeachment as the Senate prepares to take up the matter in the days following. If there’s one thing we can be certain of, it’s that Trump seems determined to make his exit from the world stage as humiliating as possible. Which is nothing less than what we expected.

Fox News Clings to Trump’s Big Lie of Election Fraud that Fueled the Capitol Riots

A week ago several thousand Donald Trump cult disciples stormed the U.S. Capitol in an attempt to disrupt the constitutional duty of Congress to certify the results of the presidential election. These traitors terrorized members of Congress, their staff, and Capitol security. Five people died during the insurrection, and many more were seriously injured.

Fox News, Terrorism

The impetus for this assault on democracy was Trump’s “Big Lie” that the election was stolen from him by some nefarious and massive Deep State cabal. Never mind that there is no evidence whatsoever of this alleged conspiracy. Just the allegation was sufficient to inflame Trump’s followers and produce a historic and tragic atrocity carried out by fatuous fools under the influence of flagrant falsehoods.

Within a week Trump was impeached for his role in inciting the riots, which he threatened would result in even more violence. He may be right. His cult is notoriously hostile and not known for their adherence to reason or facts. And it makes little difference that he posted a video asking to find common ground. With racist conspiracy crackpots? Not likely.

All of which makes what aired on Fox News Thursday morning more heinous and dangerous. Trump’s trade advisor, Peter Navarro, who has zero credentials to address these matters, appeared on Fox News for an interview with their Senior Trump-fluffer, Maria Bartiromo. The segment could only be described as a further incitement to violence (video below):

Navarro: What happened yesterday [the impeachment vote] was a travesty. The Democratic Party did violence to this country by attacking a president who I believe was legally elected on November 3. If the election were held today he’d be elected again. And if he runs in 2024 he will be elected then. And I think that’s what the Democrats fear. I’ve never been more pissed off in this place, and I think there’s 74 million Americans out there who voted for President Trump who feel exactly the same way.”

Notice that Navarro tries to linguistically associate Democrats with violence when all of the violence was caused by Republicans and Trump supporters. More ominously, he is regurgitating the very same “Big Lie” that Trump has been pushing about a “rigged” election, which is what triggered his supporters to commit terrorist crimes in the Capitol. This is a brazen attempt to incite more violence, just as Trump warned. Navarro then engaged in this exchange with Bartiromo:

Navarro: So I would say to these people on Capitol Hill, “Knock it off. Stop this.” Let the man leave peacefully with his dignity. He was the greatest jobs president, the greatest trade negotiator we’ve ever had in history. And this is just wrong what they’re doing.
Bartiromo: We know that there were irregularities in this election. We know that 70% of Trump voters have said we’re not buying this election. We think it was rigged. But get this, you cannot say that on social media. You will get banned.
Navarro: You can’t say it anywhere.
Bartiromo: You can’t use the word “irregularities.” And if you say there was fraud it’s absolutely outrageous. This feels more like communist China than it does America, that they have the ability to stomp out free speech.

First of all, suggesting that Trump has any dignity is just another big lie. What’s more, he is literally the worst jobs president ever. As for trade, he has only succeeded in imposing tariffs that have crippled American businesses.

Then Bartiromo returns to the election fraud lie, saying that “70% of Trump voters have said we’re not buying this election.” So what? Those are Trump’s dimwitted zealots whose opinions were formed by his hammering falsehoods into them. Of course they feel that way. That is not, however, the way the majority of Americans feel. They support his impeachment and removal from office.

Both Bartiromo and Navarro then make the absurd observation that you can’t say the election was rigged. Notice that they are both saying it on a national television network. Bartiromo goes further to compare her false allegations to the media in communist China. Once again, she’s making that charge on her own nationally broadcast TV show. The only plausible comparison that can be made in that regard is the comparison to how devotional and sycophantic she and her Fox News confederates are toward Dear Leader Trump.

Fox News seems to be doing everything in its power to exacerbate an already volatile situation. An analysis by Media Matters shows that Fox News has cast doubt on the results of the election nearly 800 times in the two weeks since Fox itself called the election for Joe Biden. They seem to be purposefully antagonizing Trump’s terrorist brigades. There just isn’t any other plausible explanation for their persistent dissemination of Trump’s lies. And if they keep it up, they will make sure that Trump’s prediction of more violence comes true.
