Dementia-Addled Trump Descends Into Gibberish When Hannity Asks What He Would Do About Inflation

Poor Donald Trump. By his own account he is the world’s biggest victim. While he puts on airs of being a dominant alpha male, he whines like a colicky infant whenever anyone directs even the gentlest criticism at him. He literally bragged that he is the most fabulous whiner.”

Donald Trump Circling the Drain

Trump took a break from headlining his increasingly unpopular MAGA Cult Tour to visit with his BFF Sean Hannity on Wednesday. He could not have asked for a friendlier venue than the Fox News Primetime Trump-Fluffing Hour with a host who is best known for cravenly kissing his, let’s say ring.

Nevertheless, Trump managed to humiliate himself with his unartful dodge of a question that should have been a “gimme.” That’s surely what Hannity intended. But Trump is too cognitively deficient to field even a softball from a slobbering sycophant. Hannity set up the question by maligning President Biden and lying about the state of the economy. And that produced the following hysterical response to Hannity’s inquiry about inflation (video below):

Hannity: If you’re president, what would you do?
Trump: So what you’re saying sounds all very easy and sounds very simple, not actually that simple, but I will tell you that this is like the biggest tax increase in history. If you look at what inflation is doing, and I saw a number today that wages can go up, but they’re nowhere near what’s being taken out of families by pure inflation. Just the cost of bread, the cost of gas, the cost of gasoline, the cost of everything. Everything is up.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? So far, Trump hasn’t gotten anywhere near that. But he is regurgitating the rote Republican response that somehow Biden is responsible for inflation, despite the fact that it is occurring throughout the world due to multiple factors, including COVID and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Trump (cont’d): “And supply chain. You go to stores and they’re half empty. Many stores they can’t get products. They can’t get anything. You go to luxury stores or non-luxury stores, supermarkets, and the shelves are half there. And nobody’s ever seen it. We didn’t even have to discuss supply chain during my administration. Because it was a perfect moving machine. It was beautiful. We created the greatest economy in the history of the world. We created an economy that was better than any economy in history.”

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? But still no coherent solutions from Trump. However, he does demonstrate that he hasn’t been in a supermarket lately, where the shelves are pretty full. He also seems to have forgotten how the supply chain was disrupted during his occupation of the White House, when common consumer products like toilet paper were nowhere to be seen. And businesses were shuttered because he refused to take the advice of doctors and epidemiologists to contain the pandemic. His “beautiful,” “perfect moving machine” resulted in the first presidency in decades to have fewer jobs at the end than when it began.

Trump (cont’d): “Then we got hit by the ‘China’ virus, and after the ‘China’ virus we did one of the best jobs in the world of doing everything including Operation Warp Speed and everything that that entailed. The therapeutics, the vaccines, everything we did and then they messed it up with the mandates, and they absolutely were killing our country with the mandates which should have never happened. It’s just so sad to hear because this was all a self-inflicted wound from inflation to the loss of energy independence. And now add to that what’s going on in Ukraine. That’s genocide. What’s happening in Ukraine, people have never seen anything like that before.

Reminder: The question was “What would you do” about inflation? And there you have it. The entire, interminable, rambling rant never touched on the substance of the question. That’s because Trump has no friggin’ idea what to do about inflation. Just as he has no friggin’ idea what to do about Ukraine. But he does rage against common sense measures to protect people from a deadly virus, even as he tries to take credit for it.

Trump continues to prove that his ignorance has no bounds. He doesn’t even have the ability to fake it when asked questions that should have been anticipated and prepared for. Then again, he doesn’t need to worry about toadies like Hannity asking any follow up questions, or even expecting a relevant, comprehensible answer. Everyone around Trump just accepts, and worse, nurtures his decaying mental state. And the threat of anyone with his degree of dementia holding any position of power in the future is unthinkably horrifying.

Fox News is STILL Pushing the Deadly Lie that COVID Vaccines Don’t Work

After more than two years of accumulated scientific research and field studies on literally billions of subjects worldwide – and more than 200,000,000 in the U.S. – Fox News is continuing to put the lives of their gullible viewers at risk by lying to them about the safety and efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccines.

Fox News, Vaccine

This has been their mission from the onset of the pandemic. Fox News has persistently promulgated flagrant falsehoods about the coronavirus. They have said that it would simply go away on its own. They have peddled quack “cures” like Ivermectin. They have obediently regurgitated the asinine blathering of Donald Trump who advocated bleach injections.

RELATED: Fox News is SHOCKED that MSNBC’s Joy Reid Rightly Berated Them for Killing Off Their Audience

All of this was in complete contradiction to what the epidemiologists and health experts have said. In fact, Fox News wasn’t just disagreeing with the experts, they were maligning them as liars engaged in conspiracies to exploit vaccines as some sort of mind control program. They even compared Dr. Anthony Fauci to the sadistic Nazi doctor Joseph Mengele.

The whole world now has documented evidence that vaccines save lives. But Fox News is still stuck in their manufactured narrative that it’s all a hoax contrived by Big Pharma and evil Democrats. And they said so explicitly on Friday morning’s episode of Fox and Friends:

Brian Kilmeade: You tell us the vaccines works, then you stop talking about it. And everybody that’s testing positive for it, like Jen Psaki, four shots. So you wonder why people are having doubts about this whole two year torture, the condescending talk that we’ve been experiencing from that White House.
Ainsley Earhardt: Nancy Pelosi – vaccinated and boosted – and we do wish her well. I hope she’s okay. I wonder if she’s gonna get the monoclonals.
Kilmeade: I heard she’s asymptomatic. Most people are asymptomatic.

Right out of the gate Kilmeade is fictionalizing his rant. While health professionals are indeed telling people, correctly, that the vaccines work, no one has stopped talking about them. To the contrary, most doctors are ardently advising everyone to get vaccinated and boosted.

Kilmeade’s reference to White House Press secretary Jen Psaki exposes another of the black holes in his knowledge base. He thinks that because Psaki tested positive that the vaccines don’t work. Ditto Nancy Pelosi. And it isn’t coincidental that the examples they put forward are Democrats. Because all of this is just more partisan bullpucky aimed at disparaging their political foes.

However, anyone who has been paying attention knows that the vaccines are not a guarantee that the virus will not be transmitted. They are intended to prevent severe outcomes including hospitalization and death. That’s especially true with the newer variants of the virus. And they work extremely well in that regard.

RELATED: Tucker Carlson of Fox News Says ‘Vaccines Don’t Work and They’re Not Telling You’

What’s more, contrary to Kilmeade’s curiosity about “why people are having doubts,” no one is wondering about that. It’s crystal clear that any such doubts have been planted and nourished by people like Kilmeade on Fox News. It’s Fox News that has been been condescending by characterizing vaccines – a quick and easy way to stay healthy – as “torture.” And despite his acknowledgement that many people who test positive these days are asymptomatic, he still doesn’t get that that is because they’ve been vaccinated. The vast majority of fatalities – greater than 90% – are among the unvaccinated.

So if you are wondering why Fox News viewers and Trump followers are the biggest group of Americans suffering and dying from COVID, wonder no more. It is directly due to the knowingly dishonest and purposefully concocted disinformation that Fox News buries their audience under.

And despite all of the evidence that this is true, the callous cretins at Fox stubbornly pursue this deadly course of action without conscience or sympathy. To them it’s just another opportunity to attack Democrats for some fabricated fallacy. They couldn’t care less who it hurts.

Fox News Spews Anti-Vax Lies, Falsely Implying a Comedian Collapsed on Stage Due to COVID Vaccine

For the past two years Fox News has been at the forefront of the pro-COVID movement in America. They have supported Donald Trump’s deadly negligence and deliberate downplaying of the health crisis. They have opposed public policies advocating masks and vaccines that would mitigate the harm. And as a result, they have turned the coronavirus into the Fox News Pandemic.

Fox News, Vaccine

That crusade of morbidity has not diminished as the death toll has mounted. Fox News continues to deceive their viewers with purposeful misrepresentations intended to spread the virus of disinformation. And to that end, they posted a story on Monday that was framed in a fashion that was both flagrantly dishonest and typical for the professional liars at Fox News:

The story involves a medical emergency that took place during an appearance by comedian Heather MacDonald. Note that the lede that Fox attached to this story – “NO LAUGHING MATTER: Comedian collapses on stage, fractures skull after declaring she’s triple vaxxed” – explicitly connects MacDonald’s collapse on stage with her vaccination status. However, nowhere in the actual story is her vaccination status even mentioned. There is a single line noting that she told a joke about vaccines. But it didn’t imply any relationship to her having fainted. In fact, the only reference to a cause for her condition said that “The star’s reps told Phoenix’s NBC outlet that she ‘may have lost consciousness because of dehydration.'”

What’s more, Fox cited TMZ as the source for the story. TMZ did provide a little more information about MacDonald’s show. They said that her vaccine joke included the line “I’m vaxxed, double vaxxed, boosted … and flu shot and shingle shot and haven’t gotten COVID and Jesus loves me most.” So even with that context there is no correlation between her having been vaccinated and her passing out.

This was a blatant attempt by Fox News to frighten their already fearful audience with falsehoods about the vaccine. Fox wants them to believe that the vaccines are dangerous. Never mind that Fox News has imposed a vaccine mandate requiring all of its employees be vaxxed or submit to daily testing.

Lying by Fox News is, of course, not news. They recently aired a segment with a senator who falsely claimed that the Pfizer vaccine wasn’t approved by the FDA. In another more political segment they displayed a list of what they said were the “Top Ten Unhealthiest Cities” in America, all run by Democrats. Except the the list, according to their own source, were actually the ten healthiest cities. And all of the bottom ten were in Republican states. And as the Omicron variant began to spread, Fox News mocked it as fake.

So after two years, Fox News is as obsessed with lying about COVID as ever. They simply don’t care how many people get sick or die. Even though by all accounts it is mostly their own viewers. That is about as definitive of a death cult as it gets. And although it has only been a couple of years, the Fox News/Trump cult is already responsible for more deaths than any other cult in modern times.

Loathsome Laura Ingraham of Fox News Applauds Report that Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark Milley Has COVID

The heinous inhumanity of contemporary conservatism has been evident for years. It is an ideology that delights in the hardship of others, whether they be political opponents or citizens who have the audacity to be poor, non-white, or (gasp) Democrats. And their openly hostile attitude toward those they regard as adversaries has been spiraling downward since the advent of the Cult of Donald Trump, who also gets his kicks from people suffering.

Fox News, Laura Ingraham

To prove that point, Fox News Senior White Nationalist, Laura Ingraham, offered another episode of her continuing segment “Positively Boosted” on her program on Monday. The purpose of the segment is to callously mock people who have been diagnosed with COVID after having been vaccinated. It is a despicable concept that reveals her perverse pleasure in the suffering of others.

In Monday’s episode Ingraham reported that Gen. Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, was diagnosed with COVID. But it wasn’t enough to merely report this news that any decent person would consider unfortunate, Ingraham actually applauded with glee while doing so. “The triple vaxxed Joint Chiefs chairman Mark Milley,” Ingraham gushed, “our favorite, Mark Milley, tested positive for COVID yesterday.”

Ingraham and her guest, Raymond Arroyo of the Eternal Word Television Network, went on to cheer the illnesses of Marine Corps commandant, General David Berger, and the Vatican’s secretary of state, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. They closed the segment with their wholly disingenuous well wishes that “they’re all healthy and fine. But stop pushing your mandates.”

Note that she said that from where she is remotely broadcasting due to the mandates imposed by Fox News. What’s more, Milley’s diagnosis is proof that mandates, like those imposed by the military, are necessary as a matter of military readiness. As CNN reports

“[T]here were 32,912 COVID cases in service members around the world, marking a dramatic increase from one week earlier, when there were 13,940 cases across the military. Just before Christmas, the number was a far lower, at 5,285 cases.”

Milley is Ingraham’s “favorite” because he has had concerns about diversity and racism in the ranks, which she called a “far-left Marxist racist ideology.” She may also have been listening to her Fox News confederate, Tucker Carlson, who maligned Milley for the same reason, saying – in a feat of epic projection – that “He’s not just a pig, he’s stupid.” All because Milley told a congressional hearing that…

“I do think it’s important for those of us in uniform to be open minded and be widely read. The United States Military Academy is a university. And it is important that we train and we understand. And I want to understand white rage. And I’m white, and I want to understand it. So what is it that caused thousands of people to assault this building and try to overturn the Constitution of the United States of America? What caused that?”

Perhaps Ingraham was also triggered by Milley’s remarks published in the book Peril, by Bob Woodward and Robert Costa. The book reported that…

“Milley took top secret action to limit President Trump’s ability to make strike or to use nuclear weapons. […] Milley is deeply shaken from the assault on the Capitol on [January] 6th. He believes Trump is unstable, unpredictable, and Milley believes that Trump is in serious mental decline.”

For the record, Gen. Milley is a career Army officer who was appointed to his post by Trump in 2018 and confirmed by the Senate on a vote of 89 to 1 (Jeff Merkley, a Democrat, was the sole “no” vote). But despite Trump’s promotion, as he often does, he later turned on Milley and appeared on the Newsmax program hosted by his former press secretary, Sean Spicer, to respond to the excerpts from Woodward’s book by accusing Milley of treason.

The anti-vax positions by Ingraham and Fox News are prolonging and exacerbating the pandemic, particularly among their own viewers. And Ingraham’s idiotic and insensitive segment mocking people who got COVID after being vaccinated is just more dangerous disinformation. She is discouraging people from getting vaccinated by falsely implying that vaccines don’t work. Which results in the virus spreading and infecting more people, including some who were vaccinated.

What Ingraham doesn’t bother to mention is that the vaccinated will generally have mild symptoms, if any, while the unvaccinated are far more likely to wind up in the hospital, or the morgue. But those pesky facts don’t deter Ingraham or Fox News from spreading lies that put people’s lives at risk. In fact, as can be seen in this instance, they actually get off on it.

Poor Crybaby Trump is Having a Terrible New Year, Trying So Hard to Blame His Failures on Biden

Congratulations America. We made it to 2022 despite the challenges and obstacles. While the COVID pandemic is still with us due to the lies of Donald Trump and Fox News, most of us who are not in Trump territory have been vaccinated and are likely shielded from severe consequences.

Donald Trump, Snowflakes

Sadly, the former reality TV game show host doesn’t seem to be sharing much joy this holiday season. although he was seen at a Mar-a-Lago Super-Spreader party, he neglected to wish his cult disciples a Happy New Year. In stead, he posted a message (via his Twitter ban defying spokes-shill) with s decidedly depressing – and typically dishonest – theme:

“The United States just set a record high for coronavirus infections. Remember when Biden said that he would quickly and easily solve this problem? How’s he doing? He now says that it is up to the states, not the Federal Government, exactly the opposite of what he said during the campaign!”

Notice that Trump is virtually rooting for the virus. He is downright gleeful that it is continuing to cause more misery and loss. The only thing he cares about is that it could cause political problems for President Biden. This isn’t the first time Trump has celebrated such suffering. And he persists in ignoring the painful reality that it is almost entirely his own supporters who are succumbing to severe sickness.

Trump asks his dimwitted devotees to “Remember when Biden said that he would quickly and easily solve this problem?” If they do, they really need to get into a drug rehab program. Because Biden never said any such thing. He said that he would fight to defeat the virus, and recognized that it would be difficult. It’s Trump who is always saying that all of things he failed to achieve would be achieved quickly and easily.

As for how Biden is doing? Well, over 240 million Americans (73%) have been vaccinated, and about 67 million (20%) have received the booster in less than a month. That is what is keeping hospitalizations and deaths down. And the only reason that there have been more deaths in 2021 than in 2020 is because 2021 started with a much higher population of infected people, and so many of Trump’s followers still refuse to get vaccinated or wear masks.

Trump is also lying about Biden saying that “it is up to the states, not the Federal Government” to resolve the pandemic problem. That’s a distortion that he picked up from Fox News. But the truth is that Biden told a conference of governors that the federal government by itself is not the solution. When Biden said that “there is no federal solution. This gets solved at a state level,” he was not dismissing any federal role. He was agreeing with the Republican governor of Arkansas, Asa Hutchinson, who said that “as you look towards federal solutions that will help alleviate the challenge, make sure that we do not let federal solutions stand in the way of state solutions.”

Biden elaborated on the need for a federal/state partnership saying that “My message to the governors is simple: If you need something, say something — and we — we’re going to have your back in any way we can.” He enumerated some of the ways that Washington was working with the states, from invoking the Defense Production Act to deploying FEMA. And he closed saying that “we’re going to get through it by working together.” So contrary to Trump’s warped misrepresentation, that is exactly in accordance with what Biden said in his campaign. And it’s just that sort of consistency and integrity that triggers Trump’s latent inferiority complex and contributes to his holiday whining.

Pro-COVID Pervert Jim Jordan and His GOP Judiciary Jackasses Throw Toxic Twitter Tantrum

There are many reasons to dread the horror of Republicans taking over the majority in Congress in 2022. Not only would they advance their wet dream of an authoritarian dictatorship headed by Donald Trump, they would pursue impeachment proceedings against President Joe Biden, which they have already proposed.

Jim Jordan

What’s more, a newly empowered GOP majority would stomp their boot heels down on the progress made by Democrats on the economy, and the fight against the COVID pandemic. And their most deranged fringe dwellers would assume positions of power.

Leading the crusade of the crazies would be Rep. Jim Jordan who, despite allegations of condoning the sexual abuse of students when he was a wrestling coach, stands to become the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee in a Republican Congress. That’s a post that would put him in charge of any investigations into the Biden administration, including impeachment.

The ignorant and irresponsible brand of leadership that Jordan would provide was illustrated on Thursday with a pair tweets mocking the proven efficacy of vaccinations and face masks to mitigate the harm of the coronavirus. In one posted by the official account of the JudiciaryGOP (for which he is the ranking member), the message was a terse “If the booster shots work, why don’t they work?”

That tweet was deleted for some reason (though preserved here). Perhaps because it was blatant disinformation that could result in untold fatalities. The facts are not in dispute. As Jeff Sites (Jordan’s Democratic opponent) pointed out in response to Jordan, there were 6.1 deaths per 100,000 among the unvaccinated, 0.5 deaths among the vaccinated, and only 0.1 deaths among the boosted.

The second tweet was posted by Jordan himself. It struck a similar theme asking “If masks and mandates work, why don’t they work?” Jordan retweeted a chart that showed the recent spike in COVID cases reported due to the Omicron variant. What he neglected to mention was that nearly all of the new cases were people who were not vaccinated. And the vast majority of the unvaccinated are Republicans and Fox News viewers. In fact, studies show that Trump supporters and Fox News viewers are the most likely to believe the sort of dangerously bogus disinformation that Jordan is spewing here.

So Jordan is wrong on both counts. Boosters do work, and they keep people from suffering severe illness should they have a breakthrough infection. Masks and mandates also work, and they prevent the virus from spreading among those who employ them. It’s the dimwits who listen to Fox News and Trump and Jim Jordan who are getting sick and dying. And Jordan’s tweets appear to be intended to make matters even worse for those deluded souls.

Fox News and Their Partisan Shills Attack Rachel Maddow for Being Right About COVID Vaccines

The COVID pandemic in America is surging again thanks to the Omicron variant that began circulating a few weeks ago. And the Omicron variant began circulating thanks, in large part, to Fox News. The network has been the most significant purveyor of coronavirus disinformation which has resulted in studies showing that viewers of Fox News, along with supporters of Donald Trump, “have seen much lower vaccination rates and much higher death rates from COVID.”

Rachel Maddow, Fox News

The fact that watching Fox News is decidedly more life threatening than watching other news networks has not gone unnoticed at Fox. Unfortunately, they just regard it as a liberal media hoax and whine when they are righteously called out on it. Last week Fox News did a segment seething with hostility toward MSNBC’s Joy Reid because she accurately reported that Fox is killing off their own audience. This week it’s Rachel Maddow’s turn to be the victim of Fox’s misplaced fury. They posted an article on their website asserting that…

“Social media users demanded apologies from Rachel Maddow and MSNBC over the liberal host’s insistence in March that the COVID-19 vaccine stops the virus dead in its tracks and prevents further transmission.

“‘Now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person,’ Maddow said on her show the evening of March 29, 2021. […] ‘The vaccines,” she said, ‘will get us to the end of this.'”

The gist of the article was a specious criticism that Maddow was mistaken when she reported that getting vaccinated was the best protection from the virus and would eventually lead to a return to normalcy. But she was right. And in her unedited commentary Maddow correctly noted that if enough of the population were vaccinated, the pandemic could be brought under control:

“Instead of the virus being able to hop from person to person to person, potentially mutating and becoming more drug resistant along the way, now we know that the vaccines work well enough that the virus stops with every vaccinated person. A vaccinated person gets exposed to the virus, the virus does not infect them. The virus cannot then use that person to go anywhere else. It cannot use a vaccinated person as a host to go get more people. That means the vaccines will get us to the end of this, if we just go fast enough.”

Naturally, Fox News deliberately misinterpreted Maddow’s remarks. Their dishonest spin contends that she was saying that merely the existence of the vaccines would eradicate the virus. But she clearly stated that in order for the virus to be defeated, people would have to avail themselves of the vaccine, and to do so quickly. Only then would the virus be prevented from spreading and mutating.

These comments, which Maddow made nine months ago, prior to the emergence of the Omicron variant, have proved to be impressively accurate. As noted above, Fox News was instrumental in discouraging people from getting vaccinated. So they are directly responsible for creating an environment within which the virus could evolve into a form that is better able to evade the protection of the vaccines. In short, the reason we haven’t gotten past this is the purposeful lies and misguidance of Fox News.

That makes this article attacking Maddow all the more despicable. It’s Fox News battering Maddow for their own fatally bad conduct. And even the article’s principle claim that “Social media users demanded apologies from Rachel Maddow and MSNBC,” is brazenly biased and dishonest. They would have been more correct had they referred to “right-wing social media,” because every example they posted was a conservative media figure:

  • Clay Travis, right-wing radio host who replaced Rush Limbaugh said…
    “It’s wild how there are no consequences for all these vaccine lies. If you wonder why many are skeptical of the covid “vaccine” it’s because they remember what they were told about how effective the vaccine was. All that Rachel Maddow says here is untrue.”
  • Dave Rubin, right-wing YouTuber said…
    “But she was so sure of it as she read the script off the teleprompter!”
  • Rachel Campos-Duffy, Fox News host said…
    “Will she retract her statement and apologize?”
  • Matt Birk, retired football player who thinks the CEO of Delta is more qualified than Dr. Fauci to shape public health policy said…
    “I’m sure she’s admitted that she was 100% wrong. After all, she’s part of the media and they have an obligation to the truth.”
  • John Dennis, Republican politician who unsuccessfully challenged Nancy Pelosi said…
    “@maddow, you owe an update to this video, don’t you think?”
  • Moms for Liberty, right-wing Twitter trolls said…
    “Declared with such certainty. Our children have suffered because of the hubris of media. #UNMASKOURCHILDREN.”

As usual, Fox News provides only one side of the story – the moronic side. It’s what they do. And don’t expect them to apologize for maligning Maddow and MSNBC, because that would require that they have some some integrity and journalistic ethics.

Fox News is SHOCKED that MSNBC’s Joy Reid Rightly Berated Them for Killing Off Their Audience

The faux “journalists” at Fox News have long demonstrated that they have a virtually inexhaustible supply of contrived indignation. They stockpile it for occasions when they are justly accused of moral or ethical wrongdoing for which they have no plausible excuse. Then they unleash their manufactured wrath on those who have correctly criticized them.

Joy Reid, MSNBC

On Sunday’s episode of Fox’s MediaBuzz, host Howard Kurtz was worked up about a segment of MSNBC’s The Reidout wherein Joy Reid made an entirely appropriate observation about how Fox News has exacerbated the COVID pandemic by repeatedly lying about its severity and discouraging – and even mocking – common sense mitigating behavior such as wearing masks and getting vaccinated.

For instance, one of their top shills, Greg Gutfeld, recently upchucked a rancid rant advising his already deluded viewers to forego getting vaccinated or getting boosted because so-called “natural immunity” was better. Never mind that “doctor” Gutfeld’s diagnosis is contrary to all of the medical science on the subject. Likewise, Fox’s relentless campaign of coronavirus disinformation has resulted in a pandemic disparity wherein “counties that went heavily for Donald Trump have seen much lower vaccination rates and much higher death rates from COVID.

Which makes the segment on Sunday’s show all the more loathsome. Kurtz began by acknowledging that “the distrust of vaccines by some on the right is so deeply embedded that even Donald Trump can’t convince people that otherwise support him or follow him to get the shots.” Indeed, Trump was recently booed by his “fans” for admitting that he got the booster shot.

However, Kurtz did not acknowledge that the primary cause of the distrust he spoke of was lies propagated by Fox News. Then Kurtz entered into the following exchange with Emily Jashinsky of the ultra-rightist Federalist:

Kurtz: In his speech, Biden said people’s choices are affected by the dangerous misinformation on cable TV and social media. Okay, but here MSNBC’s Joy Reid went way further than that. Let’s take a look.
Reid (video): Probably the most vaccinated company in America is Fox News. They’re all vaccinated. They’re gonna live through this and let their viewers and their fans die. Because they don’t give a damn. It’s just clicks to them. They don’t care what happens. It’s just fun for them.
Kurtz: So Joy Reid says says Fox News wants you to die. What?
Jashinsky: And that’s exactly what she said. And this is just one of the many fireable offences she commits regularly on that show. Even though under normal standards those would be considered fireable offences. And she gets very little criticism from her peers. This isn’t normal. If somebody on the right said said this it would be a huge story because it’s so outrageous. It’s so extreme. And it’s a great example of why the left, why the Biden White House, why Democrats actually struggle to get those vaccine numbers up.

Kurtz’s response to Reid’s commentary materially misrepresented what she said. Reid didn’t say that “Fox News wants you to die.” She said that Fox is “let]ting] their viewers and their fans die. Because they don’t give a damn.” Letting them die is different than wanting it. Reid was making the point that Fox News was irresponsible and unconcerned with the deadly consequences of their politically motivated lies.

Jashinsky’s remarks were even more removed from reality. Since Reid’s commentary could be supported just by quoting Fox News hacks like Gutfeld and Tucker Carlson (who told viewers that the vaccines don’t work), it could hardly be grounds for termination. On the other hand, no one on Kurtz’s program bothered to mention the nauseating and truly fireable offences of Fox Newsers like Lara Logan (who compared Dr. Fauci to the sadistic and murderous Nazi “doctor” Josef Mengele), or Jesse Watters (who urged his viewers to confront Dr. Fauci and to go in with the kill shot. The kill shot with an ambush […] BOOM! He is dead.”).

The hypocrisy of Fox News is nothing new. It is a network that was founded with a mission to deceive and to advance the interests of the GOP (Greedy One Percent). And it has now evolved into the mouthpiece for the Cult of Trump and the authoritarian dystopia he aspires to rule over. What Reid said about Fox News is unarguably true, and Fox’s denial doesn’t come close to disproving it.

Fox News Clown Greg Gutfeld Pushes ‘Nature’s Vaccination’: Getting Infected with COVID

In its continuing pro-COVID mission, Fox News has unleashed another in their efforts to infect as many of their own viewers as possible. The disinformation spread by Trump and Fox News is affirmed in recent studies that prove that “Counties that went heavily for Donald Trump have seen much lower vaccination rates and much higher death rates from COVID.”

Fox News, Greg Gutfeld

These horrific statistics would justify referring to the surging coronavirus crisis as the “Pandemic of the Fox News.” And yet, the network is still advancing flagrant falsehoods that will assuredly lead to more suffering and fatalities. The latest example of that sociopathic disregard for life came during Friday’s episode of Fox’s The Five. Co-host Greg Gutfeld was compelled to relieve himself of some of the most ignorant commentary ever unleashed on the program. Which is really saying something.

In a monologue (video below) about the new Omicron variant that is rapidly spreading throughout the nation and the world, Gutfeld advised the already deluded Fox audience to forego getting vaccinated or getting the booster if they had already been vaccinated. He gushed…

“If you urge a booster for Omicron, does that mean you are actually going to end up preventing a more effective kind of vaccination – nature’s vaccination – which would raise the natural immunity in a safe way? But with a booster, that may not be that effective. Why would you get a booster against what is, effectively, could be a booster. Call me a quack, I don’t care.”

Fake Dr. Gutfeld is, as usual, talking out of his assumptions drawn from his utter stupidity. The notion of getting infected and recovering from COVID as “nature’s vaccination” is a potentially deadly option that has been debunked repeatedly. While an infection does produce antibodies, their strength and longevity do not compare with that of the actual vaccine. What’s more, you have to risk your life and the lives of others in order to go that route. But Gutfeld isn’t a quack. He’s a murderer. And he wasn’t through…

“Here’s the poop, literally. In Florida they looked at the samples of wastewater in Florida sewage and they found that 100% of the samples had Omicron in it. But not in the hospitals because people weren’t going to the hospitals with Omicron. Which means that everybody has it, but it’s so mild that people are handling it on their own.

Gutfeld’s analysis couldn’t be more ridiculous and dangerous. The data to which he is referring describes the results of wastewater testing where the Omicron variant was found in samples of the coronavirus. That doesn’t mean that “everybody has it.” It only means that where the virus was found it was of the Omicron variety. It wasn’t found in everybody.

Furthermore, the data doesn’t suggest that being infected with the Omicron variant would necessarily result in a mild illness. Gutfeld doesn’t bother to consider that the samples found might be from people who had been fully vaccinated, and that’s the reason the illness was mild. But Gutfeld’s advice is to reject vaccination, which would likely result in much more severe illness and possibly death. He also doesn’t consider the potentially tragic consequences for people who could be infected with the Delta variant that is still infecting and killing thousands. His toxic advice will only make that worse. He then went on to malign President Biden saying that…

“That’s what makes Joe Biden kind of a despicable non-leader. He hears of Omicron, high-transmission, low severity, and instead of trying to help America regain its sense of normalcy, he redefines it as a ‘winter of death.'”

So what Gutfeld considers a “despicable non-leader” is someone who cares about people and aspires to keep them from unnecessary harm and to save their lives. While Omicron is highly transmissible, it has not been found to be low severity. The data available at this early stage isn’t sufficient to draw that conclusion. Many of those infected by Omicron were vaccinated, which would lessen the severity. But one thing that has been determined is that those who have received the booster have a high degree of protection from serious illness, hospitalization, or death.

Gutfeld is putting lives at risk with his thoroughly unqualified medical advice. He even went further to disparage other methods of mitigating the harm from the virus, saying that “We know that masks aren’t necessary.” That’s the sort of idiocy that is all too rampant on Fox News. And it is unconscionable that the network – where everyone is required to be vaccinated, or tested daily – would disseminate such dangerous lies to their viewers. But then, it’s Fox News. And they subscribe to the pledge made by Gutfeld above: “Call me a quack, I don’t care.” They obviously don’t care.

Pro Trump Counties Have Much Higher COVID Death Rates and Fox News Isn’t Telling Them

The recent surge in COVID infections is being distributed in an alarmingly discriminating fashion. Data shows that it is predominantly spreading in the parts of the country that voted for Donald Trump. This should not come as a surprise to anyone who has noticed how Trump and his right-wing propaganda machine have downplayed the risks and discouraged responsible behavior such as getting vaccinated and wearing masks. Even worse, they have actually been celebrating the suffering and loss of life.

Donald Trump, Fox News, Coronavirus

A new study by NPR confirms that “Counties that went heavily for Donald Trump have seen much lower vaccination rates and much higher death rates from COVID.” However, this isn’t the first time that the pandemic has been observed stalking Trump’s cult disciples. As far back as July there were reports of this grisly statistic that pointed to the reality that we are in the midst of a Pandemic of Fox News.”

What makes this all the more disturbing is that, despite its unambiguous culpability, Fox News has failed to alert its audience to the deadly path that the network has put them on. Fox News has not reported the facts revealed in the NPR study. To the contrary, Fox continues to disinform their dimwitted viewers. And the fruits of that disinformation are evident in studies that show that those who trust Fox News and its ilk are most likely to believe the most certifiably false COVID myths.

Many of those myths are actually invented by Fox News. For instance, Tucker Carlson recently warned his viewers that vaccines don’t work and “they” aren’t telling you. And Trump (who now claims to have developed the vaccine) is deliberately doctoring COVID death data to cast undeserved blame Biden.

These studies that reveal the truth about the course that COVID is taking are essential to understanding the scope of the problem and arriving at solutions. However, the people that need most to see this data are not going to see it because the only news media they patronize (Fox News, Newsmax, OAN, etc.) are not reporting it. So the press that they rely on is working purposefully to keep them ignorant and at risk of deadly consequences. That’s a bizarre business model.

If the Trump cultists won’t heed the warnings from reputable scientists, academics and journalists, perhaps they will listen to their spiritual guides. The 16th Century Christian theologian Martin Luther wrote about a pandemic in his era and how people should behave under such dire circumstances. It’s a lesson that American evangelicals need to take to heart. Luther chastised the “resisters” in his day saying (with added emphasis) that…

“They are much too rash and reckless, tempting God and disregarding everything which might counteract death and the plague. They distain the use of medicines; they do not avoid places and persons infected by the plague, but lightheartedly make sport of it and wish to prove how independent they are. They say that it is God’s punishment; if he wants to protect them he can do so without medicines or our carefulness. This is not trusting God but tempting him. God has created medicines and provided us with intelligence to guard and take good care of the body so that we can live in good health.”

Luther went on to warn that those who “make no use of intelligence or medicine…become a suicide in God’s eyes.” Then he leveled the most serious charge against the “rash and reckless” trying to “prove how independent they are,” saying that…

“It is even more shameful for a person to pay no heed to his own body and to fail to protect it against the plague the best he is able, and then to infect and poison others who might have remained alive if he had taken care of his body as he should have. He is thus responsible before God for his neighbor’s death and is a murderer many times over.”

‘Nuff said! Too bad that Trump and the true believes at Fox News will never say it, even though it is a sermon straight from their own divine doctrine.
