Lara Trump Tells Fox News that She Wants 5 Debates with Biden – That She Says are All Rigged

This week President Biden accepted two offers to debate Donald Trump. Shortly thereafter, Trump accepted Biden’s challenge, although not without griping about the hosting networks and some of the rules. The debates will take place on June 27 on CNN, and September 10 on ABC, providing ample time for voters to observe the candidates as they face off on live TV.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

It is customary for presidential candidates to have a couple of debates, and another between the vice-presidential candidates. This year however, we have a unique situation wherein both candidates have already occupied the White House and, thus, are not exactly unknown quantities who require more exposure in order to be recognized or to unveil their political platforms. These two candidates have been sparring publicly non-stop for four years already.

SEE THIS: Trump Calls Biden ‘the WORST Debater’ Despite Biden Crushing Him in the 2020 Debates and Election

Nevertheless, Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump – who was also appointed to head the Republican National Committee (RNC) by her Sugardaddy-in-law – isn’t satisfied. And she made her objections known to Sean Hannity on Fox News, where she spends most of her time, rather than performing the duties of an RNC chair. Lara whined to Hannity that…

“What Donald Trump has said is that he wants more debates. […] Let’s do one every single month leading up to this election cause we need these two men on a stage. […] We need to hear from Donald Trump about his vision for the future of this country. […] It’s rigged so heavily in Joe Biden’s favor, but everything always is.”

That’s right! Lara wants at least five debates between Biden and Trump. Even though she believes that that they are all rigged in Biden’s favor. It’s hard to imagine what she thinks would be accomplished by that, other than providing more airtime for Trump to lie and rant incoherently, while boring the crap out of viewers. Does she really think that Trump needs more time to lay out his alleged “vision for the future,” which consists mainly of exalting himself as a cult leader who demands the unflinching loyalty of dictators like his heroes Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un?

And let’s face it, with more airtime Trump would only engage in more attacks on Biden and more infantile insults on his other perceived enemies. He doesn’t actually have a “vision” that is based on policies that could positively impact the American people. Lara didn’t even present any in her spiel to Hannity. She just complained that Hollywood, and the music industry, and the media, and the judicial system, are all against Trump. Do we need five debates to make those annoying complaints more apparent?

Another curious part of Lara’s plea for more debates is that ordinarily the candidates who are leading want fewer debates. That was even Trump’s reasoning for refusing to participate in any of the Republican primary debates. He insisted that because he was beating all of his challengers, he didn’t have to show up to debate them. Apparently it wasn’t necessary then for him to reveal his alleged vision, or to contrast it with his opponents.

So does Trump’s craving for more debates against Biden indicate that he is afraid that he is losing to Biden? Does he have internal polling that shows him behind or losing ground? Or is he just posturing for effect and doesn’t intend to show up for those, or any of the debates? It would not be the first time that he has chickened out. In fact, it’s pretty much his standard operating position. Lying, whining, and chickening out are the Trump brand.

THANKS DON: Trump’s Bashing of Mail-In Voting Has Created an Enduring Advantage for Democrats

Donald Trump has been especially upset lately over the criminal trials that he is subject to as a result of his compulsive misconduct and disrespect for the law. For the most part his outrage is expressed in pitiful whining that he is the victim of corrupt and/or biased prosecutors and judges who are engaging in “election interference.”

Donald Trump, Vote By Mail

To be clear, what Trump regards as election interference is merely that he is finally being held accountable for his many crimes – at least 88 felony charges so far. And that’s not counting the defamation and rape, and financial fraud civil lawsuits that he has already lost, and for which he has had to post a quarter of a billion dollars in appeal bonds. Needless to say, that has triggered another Trump tantrum…

SEE THIS: Trump Attacks Judge’s Daughter in Wild, Whiny, Rambling Rant, After Gag Order Was Issued

In light of Trump’s conviction that “OUR ELECTIONS ARE CORRUPT” (as he posted Tuesday morning), this would be a good time to reexamine Trump’s ideas for ensuring fair and secure elections. For years he has insisted that early voting and mail-in voting are irreparably contaminated by fraud and must be terminated. However, that position is creating some serious problems for the republican Party that he is supposed to be the leader of. NBC News is reporting that…

“National Republicans are attempting a shift to embrace mail-in and early voting to match what’s been a Democratic advantage in recent years.

“But interviews with nearly 20 Republican officials and voters across the country say there is lingering, and sometimes fierce, resistance to the idea — from Trump on down. The schism signals potential peril for the party in the fall if it once again fails to match Democrats’ on-the-ground ballot organization.

“It starts at the top. As the leader of the Republican Party, Trump has used his position to blast, without evidence, mail-in voting as a Trojan horse for widespread voter fraud. In the process, the former president has eroded trust in a method that was once widely embraced by many people in his party, putting Republicans at a disadvantage against Democrats.”

Indeed, Trump’s anti-mail-in voting obsession is making it harder for the GOP to bank votes in advance of an election. That results in lower turnout and higher campaign costs attempting to reach voters on election day and get them out to the polls. As GOP officials try to encourage early voting, Trump’s glassy-eyed cult disciples refuse to engage in a practice that their Dear Leader has instructed them is infected with nasty, democratic corruption.

Among the GOP officials encountering this obstacle is Trump’s daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, who he recently installed as co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). Lara herself has been busy alienating her fellow Republicans. And she recently told the CPAC crowd that…

“If we want to compete with the Democrats, we cannot wait until Election Day. If we want to compete and win, we must embrace early voting. The days of waiting until Election Day to vote are over.”

Too bad her Sugardaddy-in-Law doesn’t agree with her. As recently as February Trump has been making the rounds of MAGA TV to warn his supporters to refrain from early and mail-voting.

“Mail in voting is totally corrupt. Get that through your head. It has to be. The votes. I mean, it has to be.” […And…] “If you have mail-in voting you automatically have fraud.”

Trump, of course, has good reason (in his warped mind) to oppose mail-in voting. And he isn’t afraid to reveal it to the world. Just to make sure that there wasn’t any confusion, Trump laid out specifically what the problem is with it.

“Any effort to dictate national Mail-In Voting will be a disaster for our Country and for conservatism. There will never be a Republican elected to high office again.”

And there you have it. However, what Trump seems oblivious to is that what he regards as a warning is likely to be viewed with delight by most Americans. The prospect that “There will never be a Republican elected to high office again,” is really more of a reward than a threat. So as for early and mail-in voting – bring it on. And let the Trumpies honor their hero by staying home and not succumbing to the corruption of American democracy.

IT’S A CULT! Lara Trump Tells ‘Anyone Who is Not On Board with Donald Trump’ to Leave the GOP

Just in case anyone was wondering who is in control of the Republican Party, the former reality TV game show host, and aspiring authoritarian dictator, Donald Trump, is making it abundantly clear that he is the divinely anointed master and all others must bend down and kiss his – let’s say ring.

Donald Trump, QAnon, Dictator

As evidence of Trump’s commandeering of the GOP (Groveling Obedient Peons), he has proposed to put his daughter-in-lawlessness, Lara Trump, at the helm of the Republican National Committee (RNC). From there she can allocate the funds it receives in donations from corporations, wealthy benefactors, and brainwashed simpletons, to paying for her Sugardaddy-in-law’s lawyers and traveling salvation shows. In fact, that’s precisely what she promised to do…

SEE THIS: Grifter Girl Lara Trump Says When She is RNC Chair ‘Every Single Penny Will Go to Donald Trump’

Never mind that the RNC is supposed to be a neutral enterprise that advances the prospects of all GOP candidates. In the Era of Trump there is only one mission. and that is to venerate Dear Leader Trump above everything and everyone else. Affirming that objective, Sister Lara appeared on the Trump-fluffing “news” website, “Real America’s Voice,” to declare that…

“I can assure you that there will be no funny business. Anyone who is not on board with seeing Donald Trump as the 47th president, and America-loving patriots all the way down the ticket being supported by the RNC, is welcome to leave. Because we are not playing games, and we have no time to waste. So we have to insure that every single penny of every dollar donated goes to the causes people care about.”

And make no mistake. In Trumpism the “causes that people care about” are all focused on exalting Trump. In other words, believe or be banished. No independent thought or fealty to heretics is permitted in the New Republican Ministry. That sort of disloyalty will be severely punished, and all apostates will be cast out. Rev. Trump said himself that any supporter of Nikki Haley will be permanently banned from the realm of MAGA.

Sister Lara went on to pitch herself for the leadership of the RNC, citing as her qualifications that “There is no one more loyal to Donald Trump.” It is in that spirit of compulsory devotion that Rev. Trump declared that the Republican Party has never been more united. He said that right after the first few GOP primaries where he lost 40% of his own party’s vote. And republicans in Congress are such a disjointed mess that they’ve gone through two Speakers and secured a modern record low for legislative productivity.

But never fear, MAGA-naughts. The 2024 election is the bag for Trump. It is such an assured inevitability that Trump told his cult followers that he doesn’t even need their votes. So Trump supporters can just skip the whole election and go to the monster truck show instead. That’s a message that everyone – including Democrats – can get behind. See? Trump is uniting the country.

Grifter Girl Lara Trump Says When She is RNC Chair ‘Every Single Penny Will Go to Donald Trump’

The corruption and self-dealing of the Trump family has been well documented over many years (decades). And their brazen disrespect for the law has been proven in numerous court judgments, including the ones that resulted in multimillion dollar penalties and shuttered Donald Trump’s fake university and his phony charity.

Trump Baby on Cash Pile

However, in the past seven years Trump has turned his grifting operation to politics, raising millions of dollars from billionaires seeking favors from government, extorting funds from foreign countries, and fleecing his deluded MAGA disciples.

SEE THIS: GRIFTER EXPOSED: Trump Campaign Scam Defrauds Hundreds of His Supporters

Expanding that criminal outreach into political scams, Trump is now proposing that his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump (Eric’s girl), be made co-chair of the Republican National Committee (RNC). She would serve along side devoted Trump flunky and election denier, Michael Whatley, and Trump’s campaign manager Chris LaCivita. The elevation of that trio of toadies to run the RNC is further evidence that the party has devolved into a true cult that is blindly obedient to the will of its Dear Leader.

Lara Trump has zero experience in managing an electoral organization. So putting her in charge of the RNC in this profoundly significant election year is something that should be extraordinarily helpful – to Democrats. And she has already demonstrated how much help her leadership will be in a recent interview on Newsmax, the network that employed her as a guest host and contributor after her termination from Fox News. She told her colleague Rob Schmitt that…

“If I am elected to this position I can assure you there will not be any more $70,000 – or whatever exorbitant amount of money it was – spent on flowers. Every single penny will go to the number one, and the only job of the RNC. That is electing Donald J. Trump as president of the United States.”

The rest of the Republican candidates for office must be happy to hear that. The RNC is supposed to be a neutral enterprise that advances the prospects of all GOP candidates. But in the Era of Trump “the only job of the RNC [is] is electing Donald J. Trump.” For some reason Lara’s allegedly billionaire Sugardaddy-in-Law doesn’t think that he has enough money, or access to donors, to finance his own campaign. And that may be true because Trump has had to spend millions of his donors dollars on his legal fees and incompetent lawyers.

SEE ALSO: Trump Whines that His Lawyers are Overpaid, But Considering What They Go Through, They’re Cheap

So now Trump has to appropriate all of the donations made to the RNC that were intended to benefit the party nationally. And even that may not be enough, considering that the Party’s current leadership under chair Ronna McDaniel has been so inept that the party has little to show for it’s efforts. They have raised record low amounts in the past year and have far less available cash on hand than their Democratic opponents.

But not to worry. With Trump’s daughter-in-law at the helm of the RNC, there will be no more wasteful expenditures on things like flowers. Now it will just be lawyers, Trump rallies, golfing, and portraits of Trump. Plus they will be able to introduce the tactics that Trump has used for decades to fill his pockets.

Lara Trump Flips Charges – that Donald Trump is Running for President to Avoid Prison – to Biden

It has become increasingly clear that the primary campaign strategy of Donald Trump as he seeks to reoccupy the White House is a variation on the elementary school debate response, “I know you are, but what am I?” It shouldn’t surprise anyone that the Trump camp would revert to such a childish tactic considering that it aligns so well with the stunted emotional development of Trump and his MAGA cult followers.

Joe Biden, Donald Trump

By falsely accusing President Biden of crimes that Trump himself has actually been committing, the Trump “brain trust” thinks they can flip the script and redirect valid criticisms of Trump to his opponent. Either that or just muddy the waters so that the criticism of Trump isn’t taken seriously. It’s projection on a grand scale that only affirms the maliciousness and dishonesty of Trump. He recently tried to invoke the same ploy to deflect accurate descriptions of Trump as an aspiring dictator…

SEE THIS: Trump Cloddishly Dodges Hannity’s Softball Questions About Whether He Would Be a Dictator

On Thursday morning Lara Trump was the messenger of this maneuver on Newsmax, the network that currently employs her as contributor and fill-in host. She was asked about recent remarks by Biden, who when asked about the potential of his facing a rematch with Trump said that “If Trump wasn’t running, I’m not sure I’d be running.” In response to a follow up question about whether any other Democrats could beat Trump, Biden added, “I’m not the only one, But I will defeat him.”

That led daughter-in-law Lara to contrive a crackpot theory that Biden is only running to avoid future investigations conducted by a weaponized Trump Justice Department. It’s a theory that she stole from Democratic legal experts who have plausibly surmised that it is Trump who is hoping to avoid prison by winning a second term. Lara said that…

“Very interesting to hear Joe Biden say that I guess the only reason he’s decided to run is because of Donald Trump. Well, is that because he thinks that Donald Trump might investigate his family even further? You know, you look at this situation with Hunter Biden. I think a lot of people might, might draw some correlation there and say, well, maybe the only reason that Joe Biden is trying to hang on to power is because his family depends on him trying to continue the cover up that we know has happened for the Biden crime family. It’s very interesting. This is nothing new. This is part of of the politics that we see here in the United States of America. But people know very well that Donald Trump is not a dictator, of course.”

First of all, Biden never said that the “only” reason he’s running is avoid being investigated by Trump. He merely said that he wasn’t “sure” if would run. He has long held the position that he is best suited to defeat Trump, and that if Trump were not running, he could sit it out.

More to the point, Lara’s contention that Biden is afraid of any legal scrutiny is wholly manufactured in her head. Unlike Trump, Biden has never tried to evade any legal inquiries or subpoenas. Plus, there are no pending indictments or charges that he would need to worry about. Nor have Republicans been able to come up with any shred of evidence of any wrongdoing on Biden’s part, despite years of trying. Trump, on the other hand, is facing 91 felony counts in four indictments. So it’s Trump, not Biden, who has some realistic fears of future prosecution and incarceration.

SEE ALSO: Trump’s Derangement Spirals Ever Downward as He Impotently Promises to Prove His Innocence

What’s more, Lara’s phony projection is a de facto admission that her father-in-law poses a real threat to Biden. She is conceding the possibility that Trump would abuse his power as president to persecute Biden and his other political enemies.

It’s also notable that Lara closed these comments by declaring that “Donald Trump is not a dictator.” You know you’re not winning an argument If you have to conclude it with a public denial like that. Even so, her denial is contrary to the rhetoric that Trump has been spewing. His hostile references to “retribution,” locking up his critics, building concentration camps, and his adoration of foreign tyrants, are proof, in his own words, of his nefarious intentions.

Fox News Fires Lara Trump Nearly 3 Weeks After Her Sugardaddy-in-Law Announces for President

For over six years Fox News has served as the de facto Ministry of Disinformation for Donald Trump during both his campaigns and his presidency. Their programs featured shameless cheerleaders for Trump, including Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, Jesse Watters, the “curvy couch” potatoes of Fox and Friends, and more.

Fox News, Lara Trump

Fox’s slavish fawning extended to Trump’s smarmy incarnation of the Republican Party. And they hired many of his administration’s alumni following his eviction from the White House, including his former Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo, his economic advisor, Larry Kudlow, and his press secretary, Kayleigh McEnany. However, no recruit was more brazenly biased than the wife of Trump spawn Eric, Lara Trump.

Well, as of Friday, Lara is no longer a paid Fox News contributor. According to Variety

“Fox News has long maintained a policy that prohibits people from being contributors when they announce a campaign for public office. In this case, since Donald Trump has announced his intention to run once again for president, the network’s rules bar Lara Trump from being paid for her commentary. She could conceivably appear on the air in an unpaid capacity, as she did when Donald Trump ran during the 2020 campaign.”

It took fox News three weeks to muster the courage to dump Trump’s daughter-in-law after the Former Guy’s announcement. But rest assured that she will continue to be welcomed as a guest by the likes of Hannity. What’s more, if Fox News were to take their own policies seriously, Hannity and his Trump-fluffing comrades would be fired as well for openly campaigning for Trump and other Republicans.

In tribute to Lara Trump’s expert, informed, and unbiased contributions (okay, stop laughing now) to the political zeitgeist during her twenty month tenure at Fox News, here is a brief collection of her most memorable moments…

Lara Trump Joins Fox News Just in Time to Boost Her Campaign for the Senate
On her welcome to the family: “I’m so so excited, first of all, to be joining the Fox family. I sort of feel like I’ve been an unofficial member of the team for so long.”

Fox News Vigilantes, Lara Trump and ‘Judge’ Pirro, Issue Call to ‘Arm Up’ to Shoot Migrants
On her advocacy of vigilantes shooting refugees: “I don’t know what to tell people that live on the Southern border. I guess they better arm up and get guns and be ready, and maybe they’re gonna have to start taking matters into their own hands.”

Lara Trump’s Fox News Fantastical Fact-Free Revisionist History: Trump vs Biden: The First Year
On her ability to forget Trump’s frequent golf holidays and profiteering from gauging his hotel guests, including the Secret Service and foreign officials: “I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day everyday for the American people, and by the way, took no salary.”

Fox News Spews Knee-Jerk Defense of Wannabe Dictator Trump After FBI Search of Mar-a-Lago
On her pretending that Trump didn’t steal classified documents, he was just an avid scrapbooker: “[He] loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs.”

Lara Trump Admits on Fox News that Her Sugardaddy-In-Law Interfered with Justice Dept Business
On her confession that Trump disregarded the independence of the Justice Department so she thinks everyone does: “It’s ridiculous to assume the current president did not know about an FBI raid from his own Department of Justice on the last president and a person that he may be running against in the upcoming 2024 election. What an outrageous statement from Joe Biden. I don’t think anyone believes that. And if you do believe that, then who is in charge of the White House? Who is making these calls? It is very concerning on all fronts and completely insane.”

That’s quite a legacy of lunacy. Look for it to continue as Trump embarks on his campaign to lose the popular vote for a third time, and to repulse the majority of Americans with his noxious ranting and anti-American tirades…

Lara Trump Admits on Fox News that Her Sugardaddy-In-Law Interfered with Justice Dept Business

The fallout from the recent FBI search of Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago bunker continues to make waves. With each new day there is accumulating evidence of his criminality and intentional hoarding of highly sensitive national security materials at his insecure Palm Beach resort hotel.

Click here to Tweet this article

Fox News, Lara Trump

In addition to the unfolding disclosures that Trump had personal knowledge that he was improperly refusing to return the documents upon demand – and even lying to the FBI that he had them – Trump has floated a shipload of increasingly preposterous excuses for his malfeasance and comically bizarre allegations against others.

RELATED: Trump’s Lawyers Have a Shiny New Excuse for His Hoarding Classified Documents at Mar-a-Lago

On Thursday morning, Lara Trump, spouse of Trump spawn Eric, assumed her position as a Fox News contributor. She was interviewed on Fox and Friends by Katie Pavlich about the stolen documents and made a rather unsurprising, but still grossly disturbing, confession. Pavlich opened the interview by asking “Do you believe Joe Biden when he says he had no prior knowledge of the raid?”

First of all, it’s President Biden. Secondly, who cares if Lara Trump believes him? Her belief has no legal or political value. And everyone already knows that she wouldn’t admit to believing anything that Biden says. So what is the point of the question? Finally, it was not a raid. It was a legally sanctioned search approved by a federal judge upon affirmation of probable cause. And it resulted in the recovery of illegally stolen, classified documents.

That said, Lara Trump began her reply predictably, and falsely, by opining that “I don’t believe anyone believes Joe Biden.” She followed that up by babbling about Hunter Biden, inflation, and other unrelated drivel that she doesn’t believe. Then Lara launched into this nonsensical spiel…

“It’s ridiculous to assume the current president did not know about an FBI raid from his own Department of Justice on the last president and a person that he may be running against in the upcoming 2024 election. What an outrageous statement from Joe Biden. I don’t think anyone believes that. And if you do believe that, then who is in charge of the White House? Who is making these calls? It is very concerning on all fronts and completely insane.”

The reason that Trump thinks it’s “ridiculous to assume” that Biden knew about the search is because during her father-in-law’s occupation of the White House it was routine to interfere with Department of Justice operations. He pressured, threatened, and even fired his Attorneys General and FBI directors in order to get his way. So naturally, Lara can’t comprehend that other presidents actually have integrity and respect the independence of the DoJ and and the FBI.

Lara goes on to imply that the President, being “in charge of the White House,” is therefore making calls with regard to politically-charged law enforcement activities. She insists that it would be “completely insane” to assume otherwise. The truth, however, is that those calls are reserved for Justice Department officials who are expected to consider only the law and refrain from politicizing their duties. Lara is tacitly admitting that that was not the practice during Donald’s tenure.

What’s more, Lara can’t seem to make up her mind as to whether Biden is a senile incompetent who doesn’t know what day it is, or a brilliant mastermind who controls every lever of the government. It’s a distinction that Daddy Trump is also incapable of making. In recent days he has been accusing Biden of the same improper interference that Lara is harping on. He posted a comment on his floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social that alleged that…

“Joe Biden said he knew nothing about the Break-In of Mar-a-Lago or, the greatest political attack in the history of the U.S. Does anybody really believe this???”

To answer Trump’s question – Yes, lots of people believe this. Millions of them, in fact. The only ones who don’t are his blindly obedient cult followers who have open disdain for the law, the Constitution, and long-cherished American principles.

But Trump is lucky to have such glassy-eyed disciples who will never question his wrongdoing, even when he – and his Fox News employed Daughter-in-law – admit to it on national television. And he’s lucky to have Fox News where they ask the same perverse questions that Trump himself asks.

Fox News Spews Knee-Jerk Defense of Wannabe Dictator Trump After FBI Search of Mar-a-Lago

In what everyone – including Donald Trump – is calling an unprecedented act by federal law enforcement authorities, the Trump compound at Mar-a-Lago was the subject of a search warrant by FBI agents in connection to Trump’s potentially criminal removal and possession of classified documents from the White House.

Donald Trump Fox News

Republicans and right-wing media are fixated on the unprecedented nature of this operation, while desperately seeking to ignore the criminal part. But the only reason it is unprecedented is because no president has ever acted so brazenly in the commission of crimes as Trump. And even while he rages over the indignity of being held accountable to the law like any other American, Trump frantically scrambles to shift attention away from his legal troubles, to unrelated matters about everything from the his Russian collusion scandals to Hillary Clinton.

RELATED: Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Bunker Has Been Raided by the FBI, and His Reaction is Predictably Bonkers

As soon as the story of the FBI visit to Mar-a-Lago broke, Fox News went to work obediently excusing Trump’s legal malfeasance and baselessly accusing President Biden and the Democrats of engaging in an improper persecution of The Former Guy. In an Olympian feat of projection, they likened it to third-world and/or fascist tactics. Never mind that they couldn’t provide a shred of rational support for their wild charges.

The usual suspects at Fox News launched into hysterical defenses of Trump, affirming their role as boot-licking sycophants. It began with Jesse Watters who presented a parade of Trumpist Fox contributors such as Dana Loesch and Dan Bongino to malign the “radical leftists” at the FBI.

That led into Will Cain, sitting in for Tucker Carlson, who somehow managed to book Lara Trump on a moments notice. The thrust of her attempt at whitewashing the affair was that her sugar-daddy-in-law just “loves to save things like newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, photographs.” Yeah, that’s the ticket. He was just scrapbooking. She went on, of course, to divert the low attention span Fox viewers, directing them to “Look at Hillary Clinton. the 33,000 emails that she just deleted.”

The headliner for the night was Sean Hannity. And he didn’t disappoint, so lang as your analysis is based on flagrant deception and hostility. Hannity brought on another unbiased guest, Eric Trump, who said that…

“Going back to Hillary [Clinton], There’s a whole lot of other things. How about the Benghazi scandals? How about the Clinton Foundation? I mean, how many shady oligarchs from Russia were contributing to that? How about Uranium One? You want to talk about scandals that were never investigated, never vetted?”

Literally every item that Eric uttered was a non-scandal that was indeed investigated and had been proven to be fabricated. Clinton testified under oath for eleven hours (something Trump is too cowardly to do), and no evidence of wrongdoing was found. The Clinton Foundation is a pillar of the charitable world, receiving the top rating from charity watchdogs. As opposed to Trump’s foundation that was shuttered by New York authorities for committing fraud. The Uranium One matter was a wholly contrived sham created by Fox News and the GOP.

Eric also explicitly accused Biden of being at the head of the imaginary cabal against his father. And for an added serving of comedy, Hannity punctuated his propaganda by dementedly messing up the old adage about dotting i’s and crossing t’s…

Much of the wingnut argument on Fox News has been centered on a campaign to literally defund the FBI. That’s quite a reversal from their prior position attacking Democrats for being anti-police. What’s more, they have entirely – or conveniently – forgotten that the FBI director, Chris Wray, is a Trump appointee. They even brought in felon Steve Bannon, who pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI, but was later pardoned by Trump. Bannon advocated for cutting off funds to the agency that he lied to:

“The House leaders right now need to step up and recommit Jim Jordan. Full investigation, I think, cutting off appropriations to the FBI to get to the bottom of this. This is gonna continue on. The FBI right now is the Gestapo.”

At least Bannon didn’t insult the FBI as being gazpacho. However, this take by Fox’s Todd Starnes may truly be the most deranged…

One thing all of this Trump-fawning settles is the question as to whether Fox News is still on Trump’s side. Clearly they are as worshipful of Trump as ever. There may have had a brief moment wherein a couple of Murdoch’s newspapers went off script, but Fox News itself is still a fully indoctrinated mouthpiece for the Trump cult.

Lara Trump’s Fox News Fantastical Fact-Free Revisionist History: Trump vs Biden: The First Year

It’s that time of year again. The time when the media loves to contrive mostly irrelevant milestones in order to shape easily digested narratives that invariably oversimplify complex political and social matters. And as we approach the one year anniversary of President Joe Biden’s inauguration, the spinners are coming out to create their partisan perspectives of what occurred in the recent past.

Fox News, Lara Trump

Prominent among the propagandist class is, of course, Fox News. On this occasion Fox’s Sean Hannity invited Fox News contributor Lara Trump, to deliver her perverse version of events (video below), and to compare Biden’s record to that of her father-in-law, Donald Trump. That’s not biased at all, is it? It’s the sort of “fair and balanced” analysis that Fox News is known for.

Ms. Trump began her stroll down memory-hole lane with a wildly distorted retelling of Trump’s work ethic while in the White House:

“I’m old enough to remember when we had a president who worked all day everyday for the American people, and by the way, took no salary. Of course I’m talking about President Donald Trump who in four years in office made $4.00. That’s right, because he had to take $1.00 a year. And I struggle to figure out any job where you could just not show up for a quarter of the days and keep your job.”

Good point! And indeed, Trump did not keep his job. Also, somebody might want to remind Lara about “Executive Time,” a euphemism coined to describe Trump’s notorious laziness. Leaked records from Trump’s White House reveal that he spent 60% of his time watching TV, phoning Fox News hosts, and tweeting undeserved exaltations of himself or bitter attacks on his foes. And that was when he wasn’t sermonizing at his cult rallies or golfing. Speaking of which, Lara noted that…

“I remember when the press and the Democrats would go crazy if Donald Trump got anywhere near a golf course. He clearly wasn’t golfing a quarter of his presidency.”

Actually, it was almost exactly a quarter of his presidency that Trump spent on the links. The documented truth is that Trump played golf at least 298 times (an average of once every five days) at a cost of $144 million taxpayer dollars. And most of those dollars went straight into Trump’s pocket as it paid for accommodations at his hotels and golf resorts for family, staff, members of Congress, Secret Service, political organizations, and even foreign operatives with business before the U.S. government. It shows what a trifling and dishonest dodge his bragging about taking a one dollar a year salary is.

Ms. Trump went on to praise Daddy-in-law for a string of imaginary accomplishments, including “the biggest tax cut in American history” (that overwhelming benefitted corporations and the wealthy; “remov[ing] so many regulations on businesses” (that made them more profitable at the expense of safety and the environment); “And he had also gotten rid of ISIS” (which will come as surprise to ISIS that is still very active).

In closing, Lara criticized Biden for taking “vacations” to his home in Delaware:

“I think it’s time to stop vacationing Joe Biden. I think it’s time, instead of walking your dog masked up on the beach in Delaware – by the way we still don’t know what happened to the first dog – It’s time to roll your sleeves up, get to work in the White House, cause vacationing clearly is not working.”

That’s a bold critique coming from the daughter-in-law of the president who spent the most time away from work in history. For the record, Biden was not on vacation when he went home. He was working remotely and getting a fair amount done. For instance: a major COVID-19 relief package, a bipartisan infrastructure bill, historically low unemployment, solid economic growth, the most federal judge confirmations in forty years, and getting more than 71% of American adults vaccinated.

That’s not to say that there haven’t been setbacks. The Build Back Better bill and the voting rights bills are still stuck in congressional limbo because not a single Republican will put the interests of the America people above their partisan political interests. Consequently, Biden is suffering a painfully low approval rating. However, he’s still doing better than Trump by a considerable margin.

“As Biden prepares to enter his second year in office, his average approval rating during the first year of his presidency (48.9%) is second only to former President Donald Trump, who had the lowest first-year rating of any post-World War II president, at 38.4%, according to Gallup.”

Democrats just need to do a better job of communicating their successes. And if they can do that without lying, the way Lara Trump is doing, they will eventually reap the reward.

On Fox and Friends Lara Trump ‘Cancels’ Fox News Poll Showing Biden with 56% Approval

The mission of Fox News was recently disclosed by the network’s CEO, Lachlan Murdoch. He told a Morgan Stanley investor conference that it is Fox’s job to be the opposition saying that “That’s what our job is now with the Biden administration […] That’s where our audience is.”

Fox News Lies

True to form, Fox News is carrying out their mission at every opportunity. Their so-called “news” reporting is comprised almost entirely of attacks on President Biden, his administration, and the overwhelmingly popular Democratic agenda. In fact, Fox is advancing their anti-Democratic propaganda even when when it means burying the results of their own alleged journalism.

This week Fox News released the findings of a poll they conducted that apparently produced results that contradicted their right-wing narratives. The poll showed that Biden is enjoying a 56% approval rating. However, that’s the sort of truth that Fox News doesn’t want to burden their audience with. Consequently, what would ordinarily be the topline news in the story was pushed further down in an obvious attempt to bury it.

Biden’s approval rating was literally the last line in the article on Fox’s website. The headline didn’t even mention it, reading “Fox News Poll: Majority believes COVID-19 leaked from lab in China.” What’s more, Fox barely acknowledged that the poll even existed on their network. And one of the few mentions of it was this segment of Fox and Friends where Lara Trump, a Fox News contributor, described the poll as “illegitimate”:

Kilmeade: How do you explain his approval rating, according to Fox’s poll, is 54 percent? [Note that Kilmeade got the number wrong]
Lara Trump: I mean, I truly don’t believe that. I don’t think that is a legitimate number. I also think he gets totally coddled by the mainstream media. Every time you see him truly asked a question by so many of these outlets they’re these softball questions about ice cream. And really they don’t push him on anything. They don’t follow up on anything the way we know they would with Donald Trump. And he just gets glowing reviews all around from the mainstream media. So very clearly, people who tune into those outlets are not getting the full picture on Joe Biden. But I cannot believe that anybody would have his approval rating anywhere over about negative 5% at this point.

Imagine that. Trump called Fox’s poll illegitimate on Fox’s air. Co-host Steve Doocy meekly inserted his view that Fox stands behind their polls. But it wasn’t much of defense after Trump’s tirade. And we’ll just set aside the absurdity of anyone on Fox News complaining about “coddling” and “softball questions” after four years of sucking up to Donald Trump.

A previous appearance by Trump since she became an employee of Fox News caused a bit of stir when she advocated violent vigilantism by residents of border towns against refugees. “I guess they better arm up and get guns,” Lara warned, “and be ready, and maybe they’re gonna have to start taking matters into their own hands.”

The Fox News mission to disparage Democrats and democracy is in full effect. In just the past couple of weeks for example, they have been bashing Vice-President Kamala Harris for both going to, and not going to, the border. They stand behind Tucker Carlson’s nauseating conspiracy theories attacking the FBI and the U.S. military. They are deliberately misleading viewers about voting reform and Critical Race Theory. And they literally take the side of Russia’s Vladimir Putin over Biden and the U.S.A.

That’s how Fox News rolls. And their anti-America, unpatriotic, lie-riddled assault on the values and principles of the nation will continue until the people who Fox is disinforming pull the veil of deception from their eyes. Sadly, the nature of the Trumpian cult to which they are devoted is going to prevent that for the foreseeable future.
