Breaking BS on Fox News: Hunter Biden is Selling His Artwork to… Russians? Drug Cartels?

Fox News is continuing to have difficulties finding anything substantive – or real – that they can use to attack President Biden. That’s why they’ve been resorting to pitiful, manufactured “scandals” like whether or not he wears a face mask, or blaming him for a sauce shortage at Chick-fil-A, or mocking the romance in his marriage. But try as they might, they just can’t seem to shake his broad-based popularity.

Fox News, Bullshit Factory

The latest fetish on Fox is their “scoop” that Hunter Biden has taken up painting and his work is selling for big bucks. This earth shattering exposé was featured on Fox’s “The Five” where co-host Dagen McDowell was visibly shaken by this stunning affront to her alleged morals (video below):

“I guess his Burisma money ran out. Hunter Biden is apparently an artist now. He’s selling his abstract work for as much as half a million dollars per painting. So who’s buying this crap? Hunter’s art dealer says sales are confidential, which is raising the question, once again, of whether the First Son is selling access.”

This “crap”? Is she an art critic now? If so, she has some competition from her fellow co-host and noted art expert, Greg Gutfeld, who said that Biden’s paintings look like “tramp vomit” (or is it “trump”). And Jesse Watters chimed in with the obligatory conspiracy theory to explain everything:

“So you could have a Russian billionaire hand the Biden family a half a million dollars and the Biden family just gives the guy a water color back. And we’re not supposed to say wait a second? The media has no clue what’s going on here?”

Watters also claimed that this “violates every spirit of the law. […] It’s gotta be illegal to do this, right? It has to be illegal.” Of course, he didn’t bother to cite any legal statute that this supposedly violated.

For good measure, Fox’s Jason Chaffetz fleshed out the conspiratorial drama in a separate article for the Fox News website:

“Who just paid $500,000 to buy a painting from novice artist Hunter Biden? We don’t know. […] let’s think for a minute how convenient this arrangement might be for anyone wanting to buy access to the president of the United States. […] The purchases are confidential. Who is to know if it’s a foreign government, a drug cartel, or a Ukrainian oligarch buying access to the artist or his family?”

Without any evidence whatsoever, Chaffetz has implied that these art sales could have been made to foreign enemies and criminals. He also claimed that the sales themselves were just “a magnet for corruption.” Never mind that he doesn’t have a shred of proof to support his reckless charges. That isn’t important to these shameless character assassins. The only thing that matters to them is how much damage they can do.

For the record, the value of art is measured on fluid scale that takes into consideration both tangible and intangible factors. And the notoriety of celebrity (i.e. a president’s son) can significantly inflate the work’s selling price. That isn’t an indication of corruption. And confidentiality is not imposed by the artist. It is a contractual agreement between the buyer and the art dealer. So Hunter may not even know who the buyer is.

What drenches this in hypocrisy is that Fox News has never done similarly scandalous stories about Donald Trump whose corruption was right out in the open. His brazen profiteering while president included charging taxpayers for accommodations at his hotels and golf resorts for family, staff, members of Congress, Secret Service, political organizations, and yes, even foreign operatives with business before the U.S. government.

Some estimates of Trump’s ill-gotten gain go as high as $8,000,000 during his single term in office. And that isn’t even counting the untoward profiteering of Ivanka, Jared Kushner, and the rest of the Trump clan.

In Trump’s case we know exactly where the money was coming from (politically and financially conflicted parties), and where it was going (into his pocket). In Hunter’s case there is isn’t a hint of impropriety. Nevertheless, Fox News goes ballistic over Hunter’s innocent ventures, while ignoring Trump’s flagrant and self-serving fraud. Because that’s how organs of bias and disinformation work. And Fox News does it better than anyone.

Did Donald Trump Jr Just Admit Daddy Trump Was ‘Rolling Over on Everything’ for Putin?

It’s fairly obvious that the Trump family was cursed with a genetic tendency toward arrogance, entitlement, dishonesty, vengefulness, and most of all, glaring ignorance. The evidence of that is abundant in virtually everything Donald Trump had done in his failed presidency and his public life beforehand.

Donald Trump Jr

As affirmation of the old saying that the rotten apple doesn’t fall far from the diseased tree, Donald Trump Jr is establishing his birthright of idiocy – again. On Saturday morning the Trumpian spawn took to Twitter with what he surely thought was a scorching burn on President Joe Biden. The tweet referenced the recent summit that Biden held with Russian dictator Vladimir Putin, In a flagrant attempt to sabotage the meeting in advance, the senior Trump spoke out to declare that he trusted Russia over the American President. That’s a position that Sean Hannity of Fox News shared.

Not wanting to be left out of the America bashing, Junior tweeted a reply to a report in the Moscow Times noting that Putin praised Biden as “sharp, attentive and professional.” Which is a far cry from the childish insults that Fox News has been spewing. Donnie posted this lame retort:

The magnitude of the stupidity here is massive. Is Junior really this dense and out of touch? No need to answer that. Just take a look at this tweet from last week that reported Putin’s praise for TFG (The Former Guy):

Was that also Putin’s “thank you note for rolling over on everything”? And way back in 2015 Putin said pretty much the same thing:

And who can forget the Trump/Putin press conference in Helsinki in July of 2018 when Putin admitted that he supported Trump’s candidacy and his cronies working on it:

That was the same press conference where Trump took sides with Putin over U.S. intelligence agencies regarding Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. So the love affair went both ways.

It’s more than clear that Trump was Putin’s lapdog since before he was elected, and throughout his single, twice-impeached, occupation of the white House. But it’s good to knw that Trump’s boy admits that receiving compliments from Putin is evidence of political subservience. Because no one has been more dutifully obedient to Putin than Donald Trump, the elder.

Trump on ‘The Blacks’: His Critical Race Theory Op-Ed Advocates Compulsory Ignorance

Another day, another revelation about just how despicable Donald Trump really is. A new book (Frankly, We Did Win This Election: The Inside Story of How Trump Lost) reports that Trump was upset that African-Americans weren’t more adoring of him. “I’ve done all this stuff for the Blacks,” Trump whines, “and they all f**king hate me.” That may be due in part to his repeatedly referring to them as “the Blacks.”

Donald Trump, MAGA

Trump’s dismay that his egomaniacal sense of entitlement to Black support hasn’t materialized might also be due to his overt racism that has been evident throughout his public life. After all, this is the same man who insisted that neo-Nazis in Charlottesville were “very fine people,” and that five Black men should be executed for a murder they didn’t commit, and that Barack Obama was an illegitimate president because he was a Muslim from Kenya.

On Friday Trump continued to display his bigotry in an op-ed (that he surely didn’t write) on Critical Race Theory (which he surely can’t define). It was headlined “A Plan to Get Divisive & Radical Theories Out of Our Schools,” and began by stating that…

“As a candidate, Joe Biden’s number one promise was to ‘unite’ America. Yet in his first months as president, his number one priority has been to divide our country by race and gender at every turn.

“There is no clearer example than the Biden administration’s new effort aimed at indoctrinating America’s schoolchildren with some of the most toxic and anti-American theories ever conceived. It is vital for Americans to understand what this initiative would do, what drives it and, most importantly, how we can stop it.”

Trump is attempting to malign Biden as divisive by claiming that there is an effort to impose an academic mandate to teach Critical Race Theory (CRT), a field of study of that is defined as an “attempt to understand how victims of systemic racism are affected by cultural perceptions of race.” Of course, Biden isn’t imposing anything of the sort. The recent freak out by the right on this subject is a canard intended to whip up the racist anxieties of the Trumpian Republican base. Fox News has been shamelessly misrepresenting it, and even staging phony interviews with GOP operatives pretending they are ordinary Americans who oppose it.

Trump’s op-ed goes on to accuse “the America-blaming left” of casting history in “the most negative possible light,” to advance “a new curriculum designed to brainwash” children. Never mind that CRT is generally only discussed at the college level. More importantly, it is simply a part of the nation’s history, and dismissing it would be an act of willful ignorance. Trump continued saying that…

“The key fact about this twisted doctrine is that it is completely antithetical to everything that normal Americans of any color would wish to teach their children.”

That, however, is merely an opinion and, by definition, not a “key fact” about anything. Additionally, it isn’t true, since many Americans approve of its teaching. A recent poll found that 38% regard it as “somewhat” or “very favorable.” And that’s an artificially low number due to the partisanship surrounding the issue created by biased “news” reporting from the likes of Fox News. The poll also found that 85% of Republicans, and 91% of Trump voters, regard it as “very unfavorable.” Trump went on to flagrantly lie that CRT…

“…teaches [children] that America is systemically evil and that the hearts of our people are full of hatred and malice. [That it] preaches that judging people by the color of their skin is actually a good idea. [And that] the Biden administration endorsed … inflicting a critical race theory-inspired curriculum on American schoolchildren.”

None of those assertions remotely resemble reality. But they do provide Trump with a fake pretext to suggest his solution to this imaginary problem. He says that “Congress should seek to institute a federal ban through legislation.” Really? A ban on teaching history? What’s next, book burning?

Much of what Trump proposes in his op-ed is simply the mirror image of the tactics that he condemns by Democrats, namely mandating curriculums based on a political agenda. The difference is that Democrats never actually proposed any such mandates, but Trump and the GOP are doing so now. Which may be another reason that “the Blacks” haven’t rushed to pay tribute to Trump. Well, unless we’re referring to them as Seth Meyers did at the White House Correspondents Dinner:

Sean Hannity Fumes Over Failures to Hold Putin Accountable – By Donald Trump

Nothing is as predictable as the knee-jerk, anti-Biden, freak outs by the petulant propagandists at Fox News. And naturally, the knives came out for Biden after his summit meeting with Russian dictator, Vladimir Putin. They actually came out before the meeting, with Sean Hannity playing out his role as a Russian asset, maligning America’s President on the eve of a critical summit.

Fox News, Sean Hannity, Vladimir Putin

However, Hannity was just getting started. Before Biden had even reached American shores, Hannity was lambasting him in the typically infantile manner that has become Hannity’s trademark. His blind devotion to Trump (who he was about to host for another hour of incoherent babbling), and his anti-American attitude, was evident as he did Vladimir Putin’s dirty work attacking American interests (video here from Fox news, if you have the stomach for it).

Hannity began his harangue with what he called a “recap of Joe Biden’s, sippy cup, pathetic at times even angry and unhinged performance in Geneva.” He claimed that the summit with Putin did “absolutely nothing” but provide Putin “a massive platform in exchange for zero concessions.” Which contradicted reality since Biden refused to hold a press conference with Putin specifically to deny him that platform. But to Hannity that indicated fear on Biden’s part to stand next to Putin.

So Hannity thinks that if Biden appears alongside Putin he’s giving him a platform, but if he doesn’t, he’s afraid. A lose-lose proposition from the warped mind of Hannity. Even more warped was Hannity’s assessment of the summit itself:

“Putin did not commit to ending cyber attacks against our country. He didn’t take responsibility for hijacking over 100 U.S. companies, nine federal agencies. He didn’t agree to free Americans now in prison in his hostile regime of Russia. He didn’t take responsibility for the Havana Syndrome attacks against U.S. diplomats. He didn’t agree to stop poisoning and killing his political enemies. He didn’t agree to curtail his military aggression in Eastern Europe and around the world.”

The most notable observation in that angry tirade is that every single one of the items Hannity listed were actually failures by Trump, who accomplished none of those things throughout his entire four year occupation of the White House. Yet Hannity expected Biden to achieve them all in a three hour chat with Putin. This demonstrates how ludicrously unserious Hannity’s opinions are.

For his Part, Biden concluded the summit meeting saying that “I did what I came to do”:

“Number one, identify areas of practical work our two countries can do to advance our mutual interests and also benefit the world.

“Two, communicate directly — directly — that the United States will respond to actions that impair our vital interests or those of our allies.

“And three, to clearly lay out our country’s priorities and our values so he heard it straight from me.

“And I must tell you, the tone of the entire meetings — I guess it was a total of four hours — was — was good, positive. There wasn’t any — any strident action taken. Where we disagreed — I disagreed, stated where it was. Where he disagreed, he stated. But it was not done in a hyperbolic atmosphere. That is too much of what’s been going on.”

What Hannity left out of his rant was that it was Trump who gave Putin a platform to further Russian interests. It was Trump who displayed his treasonous deference to Putin, taking his side against American intelligence agencies during an embarrassing summit in Helsinki. And he’s still professing his trust in Putin over America today.

Hannity has no real interest in holding Putin (or Trump) to account for anything. He’s only interested in trashing talking Biden and the United States. That’s the mission of Fox News as admitted by their CEO, Lachlan Murdoch. And it affirms once again that Hannity is a traitor on a traitorous network.

Hypocrisy Unchained: Fox News is Appalled that Biden ‘Snapped’ at a CNN Reporter

The transition from the surreal and hostile psychoses of Donald Trump, to the decidedly more rational and stable personality of Joe Biden, has a produced a series of “eye rolling” moments that can provoke both laughter and confusion. There has been a desperate struggle by Fox News and other right-wing media to contrive “scandals” from trivialities. Whether it’s mocking the romance in Biden’s marriage, or lying about Kamala Harris selling books to migrant children.

Fox News, Joe Biden

The latest hypocrisy by Fox News is their expression of horror because, as they put it, “President Biden snapped at a reporter at the end of his press conference.” The reporter, Kaitlan Collins of CNN, asked Biden why he was “confident” that Vladimir Putin would change his behavior. Biden’s reply resulted in this exchange:

Biden: I’m not confident he’ll change his behavior. What in the hell, what do you do all the time? When did I say I was confident? Let’s get this straight. I said what will change their behavior is if the rest of the world reacts to them and diminishes their standing in the world. I’m not confident of anything. I’m just stating a fact.
Collins: But given his past behavior has not changed, and in that press conference after sitting down with you for several hours, [Putin] denied any involvement in cyber attacks, he downplayed human rights abuses, he even refused to say [Russian dissident] Alexei Navalny’s name. So, how does that account to a constructive meeting?
Biden: If you don’t understand that, you’re in the wrong business.

Okay. Biden was a little testy because Collins misquoted him. But has Fox News ever met Donald Trump? Are they seriously making a fuss about Biden’s interactions with the press when they never said a word about Trump referring to them in Stalinist terms as “the enemy of the people.” Did Fox News miss all the times that Trump insulted reporters – especially women – as “disgraceful,” “liars,” “stupid,” “fake news,” and so much more?

Trump regarded the media as his enemy. Throughout his presidency he viciously maligned the constitutionally protected free press and reporters personally. And his abuse was noted by the Committee to Protect Journalists that declared him to be “an unprecedented threat to the rights of journalists and […] press freedom around the world.”

Another difference between Trump and Biden was that, within a couple of hours, Biden apologized to Collins, which she graciously accepted:

Donald Trump never showed the slightest respect for the press, unless it was for the drooling sycophants of Fox News, Newsmax, One America News Network, or other disreputable propagandists pretending to be journalists. But Fox News suddenly regards a minor expression of annoyance by Biden as intolerable. It’s episodes like this that affirm their well deserved reputation for being shameless purveyors of disinformation and lies.

SRSLY? Fox News Whines About Biden Criticizing the GOP and Trump’s ‘Phony Populism’

From its inception twenty-five years ago, Fox News has been a relentlessly biased, anti-Democratic, propaganda purveyor working diligently on behalf of the Republican Party and, more recently, the Trump cult. They abandoned any pretense to either fairness or balance. Their CEO, Lachlan Murdoch, even admitted publicly that he considered the network’s job to be opposing the Biden administration.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump Baby, Fake News

In light of that, it’s remarkably hypocritical for Fox News to complain now that President Biden made a few mildly critical remarks about Republicans and Trump. But, of course, that’s precisely what they did. An article on the Fox website blared the headline: “Biden slams Republicans while on foreign soil in break with political norms.” The article noted that Biden referenced the Republican opposition to a congressional probe of Trump’s January 6th Capitol Hill insurrection. It’s opening paragraphs read…

“Biden blasted Trump’s ‘phony populism’ in response to a reporter’s question about what Biden has said to allies who may be wary of trusting the U.S. post-Trump. Republicans and Democrats have long observed a tradition that ‘politics stops at the water’s edge.'”

For the record, what Biden said was…

“It is a shock and surprise that what’s happened in terms of the consequence of President Trump’s phony populism has happened. It is disappointing that so many of my Republican colleagues in the Senate, who I know know better, have been reluctant to take on, for example, an investigation because they’re worried about being primaried […optimistically adding that…] There’s going to be a coalescing of a lot of Republicans, particularly younger Republicans, who are coming up in the party.”

For Fox News to get heated up over Biden engaging in a bit of political rhetoric while overseas is profoundly hypocritical. First of all, he was responding to a reporter’s question, so it wasn’t his idea to bring it up. But more to the point, Fox News does the very same thing all the time. Just this week Sean Hannity viciously disparaged Biden in rants belittling him as “sippy cup Joe.” Even worse, he praised Vladimir Putin as being superior to Biden saying that “I fear that Vladimir will eat Joe’s lunch.” Then he repeated his frequent insult that “Joe Biden is frail, weak, and a cognitive mess.” And all of this just days before Biden was to meet with Putin in a crucial summit.

Apparently the maxim that “politics end at the water’s edge” only applies to Democrats. On Monday on Fox’s The Five, Jesse Watters said that Biden “seems confused” and that he “doesn’t see him doing well with Putin.” and when Trump was canoodling with Kim Jung Un he tweeted that he “smiled when [Kim] called Swampman Joe Biden a low IQ individual, & worse.”

Trump’s behavior is downright treasonous. Just last week, as Biden was preparing to meet with the Russian dictator, Trump insulted the U.S. and flattered his BFF Putin. He posted a statement that explicitly said that he trusts Putin more than his fellow Americans. But on Fox News Biden is the villain because he expressed some disappointment in the GOP, but also some hope. And Fox gets all huffy when people don’t take them seriously as news network?

Newsmax Numbskulls Want Fox News Execs Charged with Crimes Against Humanity

The kooky conservative cable news war is heating up. For twenty-five years Fox News has reigned as King of the Hate TV Hill. But with the advent of Donald Trump and his laser-focused interest in exalting himself, upstarts like One America News and Newsmax have sprung up to test the bootlicking leadership of Fox’s Trump-fluffers.

Diamond and Silk, Fox News

The latest escalation in the cable clash has been launched by Newsmax. On Friday their dynamic doofuses, Diamond and Silk (who Newsmax lapped up after Fox News canned them), were guests of Newsmax’s Chris Salcedo. And they distinguished themselves as their generation’s best reprisal of minstrel show melodrama:

Salcedo: Turning to the biased press, news came out yesterday, ladies, that one of their heirs to the Fox News fortune, James Murdoch, spent $20 million dollars to defeat president Donald Trump in the 2020 campaign. They also funded another $100 million dollars in left-wing political groups. I know this hit you guys pretty hard. What do you think about his?
Diamond and/or Silk: Well, first of all, where’s the FEC? Where’s the FEC on this here? This is why what happened in 2020 on election night happened. This was the executives making the decision, in my humble opinion. Even when it comes down to this pandemic and allowing Fauci to spew lies or to give us misinformation, these executives went along with it.

I think that these executives should be charged with crimes against humanity, and also with election interference. And it also explains why Fox News threw Diamond and Silk under the bus. Because they know that we was a powerful voice, and we was president Trump’s most loyal supporters.

Um… Okay! There is actually good cause to prosecute Fox News executives and presenters for a variety of crimes. They disseminated Trump’s preposterous and dangerous COVID-19 lies that resulted in the avoidable deaths of hundreds of thousands Americans (and they’re still doing it). They also promulgated Trump’s “Big Lie” that the 2020 presidential election was stolen from him. That led directly to the deadly Capitol Hill riots by Trump’s insurrectionists (and they’re still doing it).

However, while Diamond and Silk stumbled onto a reasonable legal conclusion, their path to get there was pitifully ignorant. James Murdoch is the wayward son of Rupert. But he has no role at Fox News as an executive or a decision maker of any sort. He publicly withdrew from the parent corporation and has bitterly criticized them ever since. Earlier this year he denounced the “toxic politics” in the media saying that…

“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.”

Furthermore, their whining about why Fox News “threw them under the bus” is hysterical. The reason for their termination was that they insisted on peddling harmful coronavirus conspiracy theories and crackpot cures. They were never a “powerful voice” for Trump, excerpt perhaps in the dingbat community they represented so well.

Later in their tirade Diamond or Silk (I still can’t tell them apart) declared that they “refuse to live in Joe Biden’s America,” but without specifying their destination or the date of their departure. Although they did oxymoronically malign Biden as a “diabolical imbecile.” Which only proves that they are the perfect spokespersons for Newsmax and the ultra-rightist doctrine they dispense. We wish them well on their emigration to wherever.

Putin Toady Trump Admits He Trusts Russia Over U.S. On Eve of Summit with Biden

In his latest statement from exile, Donald Trump has made it abundantly clear where his loyalty lies (with an emphasis on “lies”). And he simultaneously confirmed just how deeply consumed he is by the patently insane paranoia he’s been peddling for the past four years.

Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin

Trump’s new “Save America” (from democracy?) message is like a greatest hits collection of delusional days gone by. He appears to have crammed every psychotic concoction he could think of into one run-on rejection of reality. However, it is also a disturbing admission that he has greater trust for America’s enemies than for its leaders and defenders. What follows is an annotated examination of Trump’s profoundly anti-American screed:

“As President, I had a great and very productive meeting in Helsinki, Finland, with President Putin of Russia, Despite the belated Fake News portrayal of the meeting, the United States won much, including the respect of President Putin and Russia.”

The allegedly “productive meeting in Helsinki” was the one wherein Trump took Vladimir Putin’s side over that of U.S. intelligence with regard to Russia’s interference in the 2016 presidential election. And what Trump calls the “fake news portrayal of the meeting” was actually just the press reporting his remarks verbatim. Trump continued:

“Because of the phony Russia, Russia, Russia Hoax, made-up and paid for by the Democrats and Crooked Hillary Clinton, the United States was put at a disadvantage – a disadvantage that was nevertheless overcome by me.”

What Trump is calling a “hoax” (one of many in Trump’s diseased brain) was documented by multiple U.S. intelligence agencies, as well as by Special Counsel (and lifelong Republican) Robert Mueller’s congressional testimony. If “the United States was put at a disadvantage,” it was solely due to Trump’s ignorance and purposeful anti-American intentions. And for no apparent reason, he’s reprising his old obsession with “crooked” Hillary Clinton. But here’s the kicker:

“As to who do I trust, they asked, Russia or our ‘Intelligence’ from the Obama era, meaning people like Comey, McCabe, the two lovers, Brennan, Clapper, and numerous other sleezebags, or Russia, the answer, after all that has been found out and written, should be obvious. Our government has rarely had such lowlifes as these working for it.”

That’s right. Just days before President Biden is set to meet with Putin, Trump is maligning the U.S. and boosting his Russian BFF. Trump obviously has no concern for our nation’s security, nor any respect for the norms of diplomacy. That includes the maxim that “politics end at the water’s edge,” so as not harm America’s interests when the President is overseas. And Trump closed with this bit of assholery:

“Good luck to Biden in dealing with President Putin – don’t fall asleep during the meeting, and please give him my warmest regards!”

Trump’s support for Russia at this critical point in time is consistent with that of his Fox News sycophants. On Wednesday Sean Hannity reached out to deliver a gift to Putin in the form of an infantile put down of Biden. Perhaps it was in appreciation for Putin’s defense of Trump and his Capitol Hill Insurrectionists. Either way, the only winner in this game is Russia where these attacks on Biden by fellow Americans is being received with glee:

Jen Psaki Slams the ‘Game of Thrones Drama’ of the Trump Administration

A lot has changed in the White House since the inauguration of Joe Biden. The sour atmosphere of animosity toward anything and everything that triggered Donald Trump’s sociopathic paranoia has subsided entirely. The normalizing of racism, misogyny,, and xenophobia was exiled along with Trump. The bitter partisanship emanating from the Oval Office has vacated the premises.

Jen Psaki, Donald Trump

To be sure, many of those unpleasantries are still flourishing among the Trump dead-enders. But their point of origin is now largely confined to the treacherous Mar-a-Lago Trench. Meanwhile, the dignity of the presidency has been restored by a leader who has actual experience and competence. No longer is it the seething cauldron of jealousy, backstabbing, and fear, that Trump presided over with such gross ineptitude.

Biden’s press secretary, Jen Psaki, alluded to that when responding to a question at the Financial Times “Future of News” conference Thursday, She was the featured closing keynote speaker for the session on “Restoring trust in a divided nation.” As reported by The Hill

“White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Thursday suggested that there were more leaks under former President Trump than there are now due to infighting among administration officials during the previous four years.

“‘There’s not a lot of ‘Game of Thrones’ drama here, which feels like it may be a bit of … a shift from the last four years,’ Psaki said when asked about the lack of leaks to the media at a conference hosted by the Financial Times.”

Psaki also noted that…

“The culture of this White House is very much a put your head down, get to work, do your thing, be a part of the team.”

Trump’s management style (such that it existed) was to foment distrust and paranoia in an environment that encouraged competition for Dear Leader’s favor. That included variably sucking up to and/or sabotaging colleagues, among whom were members of Trump’s family. That’s partly why there was so much turn over in the Trump administration, and why so many of his former appointees were so openly dismissive of him – vice versa.

The “Game of Thrones” simile could not be more apt. There was a constant state of war in the Trump White House. It produced an unprecedented tell-all book while he was still in office by an author identified only as “Anonymous” (later to be revealed as Miles Taylor, chief of staff to Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security). And when Bob Woodward’s book about Trump, FEAR!, was released, Trump’s delusional response was to rush to Fox News for a softball interview wherein he hysterically claimed that…

“We have a lot of love in the administration, and the White House is truly as you would say, a well-oiled machine – it is working so well.”

Really? Many of Trump’s senior staff and close associates are reported to have called him “an idiot,” “a moron,” “stupid,” “dumb,” and more demeaning, but accurate epithets. And he vengefully returned the insults. If this is his idea of a “well-oiled machine,” what on Earth would a squeaky one look like? The only problem with Psaki’s “Game of Thrones” reference is that the harm Trump has – and is – causing is not a game.

Russian Agent? Sean Hannity’s Infantile, Anti-American Attacks on Biden are a Gift to Putin

The relentless – and mostly impotent – attacks on President Biden by Fox News have escalated steadily ever since his inauguration. But they are not merely petulant political broadsides by sore losers. They are also benefiting America’s enemies at a time when our domestic institutions are uncommonly fragile due to Donald Trump and his Republican confederates’ assault on democracy.

Fox News, Sean Hannity, Vladimir Putin

In an effort to maintain his position as Fox’s Senior Trump-fluffer, Sean Hannity is ratcheting up his rancid rhetoric. On Wednesday night he launched into an anti-Biden tirade that can only be characterized as pro-Russian propaganda (video below, if you can stomach it). Hannity began with his now tediously routine, and utterly infantile, insults aimed at Biden’s mental acuity (a debate the American people ended long ago):

“According to our Commander-in-Chief, the greatest threat to our service men and women, it’s not China, it’s not Russia, it’s not Iran and North Korea, it’s not radical Islamic terrorists, it’s not nuclear war. No, according to President “sippy cup Joe” the greatest threat to our military is global warming, and he was not joking. Take a look.”

Hannity’s grade-school “sippy cup” taunt has become a fixture on his clown show, despite his having been brutally humiliated for prior references to it. He followed up his baby talk with a video clip of Biden rationally and responsibly relating the climate change warnings of Pentagon officials:

“We must all commit to an ambitious climate action if we’re going to prevent the worst impact of climate change, limiting global warming to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius. We need the global transition to clean energy technology.

“You know, when I was over in the Tank [Joint Chiefs of Staff conference room] in the Pentagon, when I was first elected Vice-President with President Obama, the military sat us down to let us knw what the the greatest threats facing America were. The greatest physical threats. This is not a joke. You know what the Joint Chiefs told us the greatest threat facing America was? Global warming.”

This isn’t a new concept. Climate change was cited as a serious threat to American national security by Donald Trump’s secretary of defense, Jim Mattis, George W. Bush’s secretary of defense, Don Rumsfeld, and by at least four other defense secretaries of both parties. Hannity is either too stupid to know this, or is deliberately ignoring it. So he just rambled on saying…

“Okay. In just a few days that guy will sit down with the hostile actor with the hostile regime of Russia, Vladimir Putin. You know, the country that just hacked our energy and our beef industries, and I fear that Vladimir will eat Joe’s lunch. Embarrass us all. That is not good for this country. It is not good for the world. And Vladimir will see what we all see. That Joe Biden is frail, weak, and a cognitive mess who can do little more than read far-left talking points on a TelePrompTer. And he actually struggles to do that.

What isn’t good for the country or the world is taking Putin’s side, and disparaging America’s President, just days before a crucial summit meeting (and this isn’t the first time). Hannity is obviously in the service of his master, Vladimir Putin, with his hateful demeaning of Biden. This vile screed couldn’t be more helpful to Russian interests if the Politburo had written it themselves. And what ever happened to the maxim that “politics end at the water’s edge,” meaning that criticisms of the President pause when he or she is overseas on the nation’s business?

Clearly Hannity isn’t interested in what’s good for the country. He is only interested in maligning Biden, no matter how detrimental it is to American interests. And Fox News has made it clear that they stand firmly behind Hannity’s treasonous rants. This sort of strident anti-Americanism is riddled throughout the day on Fox News programs. And it should make it abundantly clear to every decent citizen what we’re up against.
