Fox News ‘Doctor’ Attacks Stacy Abrams for Fetal Heartbeat Comment that He Later Admits is True

Fox News has never been a particularly good source for medical information. To the contrary, with respect to COVID-19 they have a long record of disseminating crackpot conspiracy theories and fake cures that resulted in the deaths of untold thousands of people. They were literally killing off their own viewers.

Fox News, Covid

Throughout the pandemic, Fox News was instrumental in spreading disinformation. When they weren’t denying that there was any serious public health issue at all, they were promoting quack cures like hydroxychloroquine and Ivermectin. And among the most frequent distributors of deadly misinformation was their “Medical A-Team” “doctor,” Marc Siegel, who insisted that COVID was no more dangerous than the common flu.

RELATED: SURPRISE! Those Who Trust Fox News, Newsmax, and OAN Believe the Most COVID Misinformation

On Friday Fox News brought in Siegel again to dispense his unique brand of bullpucky. The segment was about comments made by Democratic Georgia gubernatorial candidate, Stacy Abrams, on abortion and one argument in particular that anti-choice activists cling to. Abrams was addressing claims that a fetal heartbeat can heard in ultrasound exams. Host Dana Perino played a clip of Abrams saying that…

“There is no such thing as a heartbeat at six weeks. It is a manufactured sound designed to convince people that men have the right to take control of a woman’s body.”

That’s a factual statement that credible medical professionals will attest to. The ultrasound machine actually inserts sounds when it encounters certain fetal activity. It is a product of the machine itself, rather than amplification of any existing sound. But that isn’t how Siegel portrayed it in this interview.

Responding to Perino’s question, “Can you hear a heartbeat at six weeks in a pregnancy?” Siegel hedged at first, calling Abrams’ comments “outrageous,” followed by a short historical outline of how ultrasound was invented and it’s contribution to medicine. He seemed to be implying that Abrams was criticizing the existence of the machine, which is absurd. He eventually circled back to the question and his reply actually affirmed what Abrams had said (video below):

“I gotta tell you that you can see at six weeks that a fetus is forming. There’s no heart there, there’s no valves, but you are seeing a fluttering, a flickering of electrical activity. That’s the beginning of a heart. So you can debate all day when an actual heart occurs, but that is the beginning of flickering, of fluttering of life there where the heart is gonna be.”

So Siegel is acknowledging that there is no heart present at six weeks, and thus no heartbeat. He tries to contort his response into the Fox News narrative by talking about some future fetal development that hasn’t yet occurred. But the fact remains that Abrams was right and Siegel is reluctantly, but expressly, concurring with her.

That’s the sort of disreputable blather that Siegel has made a career on on Fox News. He was, after all, the guy Fox News turned to to interview Donald Trump about his infamous cognition exam where he claims to have correctly identified an elephant and recalled the five words “person, woman, man, camera, TV”

Siegel never bothered to interject that Trump’s assessment of that test was preposterous. He stood there and nodded blankly as Trump proclaimed that the test revealed his extraordinary mental prowess. It’s a moment in the media that exposed both Siegel and Trump as mentally deficient and brazenly dishonest.

Trump Projects His Own Dementia on Biden in a Nauseating Mash Up of COVID and Election Fraud

On Saturday President Joe Biden revealed that he has a “rebound” case of COVID-19, something that is fairly common among those treated with Paxlovid. He reports that he has no symptoms, but will be isolating in consideration of others, while continuing to work in the White House residence.

Donald Trump, Insane, Straight Jacket

However, proving once again that there is no bottom to Donald Trump’s well of disgusting repugnancy, the Former Guy took time away from his Saudi sponsored, Pro-Ass (Pro-Assassination) golf tournament to post a callous commentary on Biden’s health. Trump said that…

“Joe Biden’s second bout of Covid, sometimes referred to as the China Virus, was sadly misdiagnosed by his doctors. He instead has Dementia, but is happily recovering well. Joe is thinking moving, part time, to one of those beautiful Wisconsin nursing homes, where almost 100% of the resident miraculously, and for the first time in history, had the strength and energy to vote – even if those votes were cast illegally. Get will soon, Joe!?”

After several years of being subjected to Trump’s infantile antics, it is still shocking to see him act out this way. And it’s even worse to know that there are still people stupid enough to support him. Trump’s comment is typical of his inbred immaturity. He has truly captured the Beavis and/or Butthead character that he’s obviously aiming for.

Let’s begin with Trump’s wretchedly insensitive response to someone – in this case the President of the United States – disclosing that he is ill. Imagine Trump’s response if anyone reacted to him getting sick again with what is sometimes referred to as the “Trump Virus.” But that wasn’t offensive enough for Trump. He needed to go further by offering his imbecilic prognosis that Biden is actually suffering from dementia. That’s pure projection on Trump’s part. And it is contrary to what the American people think.

RELATED: Fox News Poll: Majority Say Trump Doesn’t Have the ‘Mental Soundness’ to Serve

Biden always demonstrates intelligence, compassion, and an ability to comprehend complex issues. Trump, on the other hand, thinks windmills cause cancer, hurricanes should be nuked, stealth fighters are really invisible, injecting bleach cures COVID, and that he won the 2020 presidential election that he lost by seven million votes. And, oh yeah, Biden never tried to overthrow the government. And Trump thinks that Biden is the one who is cognitively impaired?

Trump was still not satisfied with his foul fulminating. He felt compelled to let loose more of his election fraud lies. Trump’s claims regarding Wisconsin nursing homes are flagrantly false. They are the product of dishonest propagators of Trump’s “Big Lie” and have been debunked repeatedly. Trump and his seditionist accomplices have never been able to provide a shred of evidence of any “illegal” votes.

It is a sad spectacle to see a former occupant of the White House lying so brazenly and flinging insults at someone with a potentially serious illness. But it is what we all have come to expect from Donald Trump, whose stunted emotional state is stuck permanently in unmannered toddler mode. America will be, in Trump’s words, “great again” when Trump is no longer paid any attention. And after seeing in his latest comments the sickening depths to which he will sink, that day cannot come soon enough.

Tucker Carlson is Making Profane, Homophobic Jokes About People Suffering from Monkeypox

The Republican Party has never been known for its empathy and concern for the welfare of human beings. Their entire political philosophy is aimed at causing the most harm possible for the people already struggling with hardship. Whether it be financial, health, bigotry, criminal justice, etc., the GOP is against people in need, while they eagerly advance the interests of corporations and the wealthy.

Fox News, Tucker Carlson, STFU

Consequently, it should come as no surprise that the most pompous of asses on Fox News, Tucker Carlson, is exhibiting just how careless he can be about others, particularly those for whom he has long had a seething hatred.

RELATED: Fox News Freaks Out Over New Legos that ‘Could Have Been Designed By David Duke’

On his Thursday night program, Carlson sought to stir up his sadism and prejudice into something that he thought would be fun. So he presented his audience of deplorables with a Twitter poll to rename the Monkeypox. Because what could be funnier than some jokey names for a disease that is contagious and painful?

Carlson’s poll included the following suggestions for a new name: Hunter Hives; Midterm Variant; Adam Schiffilis; and Sclong Covid. Note that three of the choice were overtly political, albeit typically infantile in nature. The fourth was profane and purposefully derogatory toward gay men who are among the sufferers. And of course, it was the fourth that won.

When the poll was completed, Carlson went on the air to gleefully announce the results. He began by saying that he thought that “Monkeypox” was the coolest name ever. You have to wonder whether he thinks it’s even cooler than “Mad Cow Disease,” or “Cat Scratch Fever.” He probably thinks that “Pancreatic Cancer” is hysterical.

Then Carlson went on to order his braindead viewers to call the director of the CDC to waste the time of the agency’s staff with their childish antics. Carlson closed by taking a shot at Rep. Eric Swalwell with an especially stupid Photoshop prank that had absolutely nothing to do with the rest of the segment. It was just Tucker being his asinine self.

It doesn’t matter how often you see these cretins on Fox News acting like idiots, it still boggles the mind how they could get on the air, and how anyone could watch them for more than a few seconds. But it is particularly galling when their attempts at humor are so laden with hostility and insensitivity toward the suffering of others. And their animus is always built around a political goal. For instance, Carlson recently commented on gas prices, noting that low prices in the U.S. are more important than the lives of Ukrainians.

However, it does explain how Carlson, and the rest of the Fox News hacks, can lie so flagrantly about deadly diseases like COVID, when they know that their lies contribute to so much more suffering and death. It appears to be what they are aiming for.

Sean Hannity Slobbers All Over ‘Super Trump’ for Contracting a Worse Case of COVID than Biden

Last week President Biden announced that he had tested positive for the coronavirus. Like many others, he was exposed to the most recent variant, Omicron BA.5, that is reported to be the most transmissible yet. Fortunately, Biden is fully vaccinated and boosted, and thus, suffered only mild symptoms and quickly recovered. He has since tested negative.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News Sean Hannity

Upon learning of the illness, most Americans were sympathetic and wished him well. However, that was not how Sean Hannity reacted to the news. Instead, Hannity launched into a typically toxic tirade against the President, because that’s the only way he has of dealing with the emotions that decent humans experience. On Wednesday’s episode of his nightly hate-fest, Hannity launched into a lecture that was littered with lies and loathing. He began by saying that…

Hannity: Biden had to evoke, the uniter that he is, his favorite subject, Donald Trump. Take a look.

Biden (on video): Here’s the bottom line: When my predecessor got COVID, he had to get helicoptered to Walter Reed Medical Center. He was severely ill. Thankfully, he recovered. When I got COVID, I worked from upstairs of the White House — in the offices upstairs — and — for the — that five-day period. The difference is vaccinations, of course. [See Biden’s full address here]

Hannity: Now, what Joe failed to mention is the current variant, which is BA.5, the dominant variant of Omicron, is much, much weaker than the original strain that infected then-President Trump.

Aside from disgorging his knee-jerk contempt for Biden, this is Hannity’s way of exalting Trump as some sort of Superman who is even impervious to deadly viruses that have killed more than a million Americans. It is the worshipful perspective of a fully indoctrinated member of the Trump cult.

RELATED: Trump’s Cult of Republican Voters is Dwindling, but GOP Politicians and Press Remain Spellbound

However, Trump is hardly a superhero. In reality, he is coward who, after downplaying the severity of the pandemic for months, kept his own COVID diagnosis secret, and even attended a presidential debate when he was likely infectious.

More to the point, Hannity’s assertion that Biden was infected by a “much, much weaker,” strain of the virus than Trump, is utterly unsupported by science. Professor David Montefiori of the Human Vaccine Institute at Duke University Medical Center said that

“There’s really no clear evidence that [the BA.5 variant is] more or less likely to make people sick and cause severe illness and death.”

It has been reported that hospitalizations and deaths are lower. But that could be due to more people being vaccinated and more therapies that are widely available.

Trump’s illness was indeed more severe than Biden’s. But the reason for that was more likely because he was unvaccinated when he contracted COVID in early October of 2020. He wasn’t vaccinated until January of 2021. What’s more, he was sicker than he let on at the time. The morbidly obese Former Guy – who subsists on junk food, is rumored to be an Adderall addict, and advocated quack cures such as injecting bleach – was hospitalized for five days with dangerously low blood oxygen levels.

Hannity’s rant began with a petty dishonesty by calling Trump Biden’s “favorite subject.” In fact , Biden rarely ever mentions him. In this address Biden referred to Trump only once, obliquely calling him “my predecessor.”

As for evoking irrelevancies, Hannity brought up an old incident when Biden tripped ascending the stairs to board Air Force One. To Hannity this was a major news story. But that contrasted with his observations of Trump, about whom he said “I never saw a Donald Trump trip,” Perhaps because Hannity has Trump-fluffing blinders on. Or perhaps because Trump rarely walks. He takes a golf cart to travel short distances. And Hannity must have forgotten how Trump shuffled down a low ramp as if he was trying to walk on thin ice. [Note: Hannity lied that it was raining, but it was a sunny day].

Hannity also outright lied that Biden “forgot to mention he took the antiviral medicine.” In fact. Biden explicitly noted in this speech that “Millions of Americans have used Paxlovid …I used it … This lifesaving drug reduces risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19 by about 90 percent.”

Hannity also lied that Biden hasn’t credited Trump with overseeing the development of the vaccines. Of course, Trump did no such thing. The companies that brought the first vaccines to market did so without the aid of Trump’s phony “Operation Warp Speed.” That said, Biden has frequently given Trump some credit for the vaccines being developed during his occupancy of the White House.

RELATED: Operation Warp Speed: Another Trump Scam That Failed It’s Core Mission

After all these years, Hannity remains Trump’s most loyal propagandist. He shamelessly flings flagrant falsehoods that glorify his wannabe messiah. And while Trump’s legal peril increases by the day, Hannity can be steadfastly relied upon to ignore reality and marvel at his emperor’s new clothes. And apparently those clothes are tights and a cape.

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.
