Tomi Lahren of Fox News Tingles with Orgasmic Delight at Trump’s Stench of Fear

Donald Trump spent four years embarrassing America and degrading democracy. And he has nothing to show for it but two impeachments, the lowest approval ratings of all time, and a pile of pending indictments, both civil and criminal. But you know you’ve arrived at rock bottom when your most zealous defenders can only cite your worst personal traits as evidence of your success.

Tomi Lahren, Trump Baby

On “Judge” Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News Holler-rama Saturday night, she hosted a couple of shameless Trump-fluffers for an extended veneration of Dear Leader. The theme of the night was, according to a ranting Leo Terrell, that “Democrats and the media are afraid of Donald Trump.” When called upon for her testimony, Tomi Lahren (aka Nazi Barbie) unleashed a bizarre variant of praise for The Donald. Lahren gushed that…

“If I were Donald Trump and I was listening to the mainstream media, I would take that as a clear signal and cue. They are terrified of you Mr. Trump. It’s time for you to run again in 2024 because you’ve got the media on their heels. And there is no better way to know that, and to know that clearly than to know how terrified they are of you. They wanted Liz Cheney. They wanted Mitt Romney. Because they are terrified of “America First,” because that’s a winning message and a winning man.”

(Longer clip here)

Since when is the ability to incite fear a positive trait for a leader in a democracy? Lahren is actually excited by how scary Trump supposedly is to the majority of the American people who voted against him twice. She must really have gotten off when Trump’s insurrectionist brigades stormed the Capitol and threatened to hang Mike Pence and murder members of Congress.

Fear is the drug that stimulates the right-wing Id. And Trump is the perfect trigger for a flock of frightened followers who can’t distinguish fact from fiction. His every public utterance is filled with hostility. He’s either insulting his innumerable enemies, lying about his imagined achievements, or whining about his perceived victimhood. And it’s all aimed at stirring the innate fears of people who can’t accept responsibility for their own failings, so they need to project them onto others who look different.

However, the assertion that Democrats and the media are afraid of Trump is a feeble fabrication cooked up by desperate losers to make themselves feel as if they have some hidden superpower. No one is afraid of Trump, the person. He was confronted and defeated by the voters last November. And the media has been making progress calling Trump’s lies out for what they are. It is not an expression of fear for the press to report honestly on Trump’s obsessive aversion to the truth. To the contrary, speaking truth to power requires strength. It’s Trump’s embrace of flagrant falsehoods that speaks to his weakness.

There is, however, a justifiable fear of the consequences of reckless, demagogic rhetoric, lapped up by glassy-eyed cultists. That’s what led to the January 6th insurrection. Aberrations like Charles Manson and Jim Jones were not themselves frightening. But their gullible and pliant disciples were capable of horrific acts in the service of their master. And that’s always been the threat that Trump posed. He was never particularly frightening, but his followers are scary as hell. And some of them are regularly on Fox News.

FLAGRANT FOWL: QAnon GOP Rep Blames ‘Biden’s America’ for Chick-fil-A Sauce Shortage

On a day when there was no shortage of newsworthy subjects to focus on – Liz Cheney’s ouster from her House Republican leadership post, conflict in the Middle East, congressional hearings on the Capitol insurrection – Colorado’s own QAnon congresswoman, Lauren Boebert, managed to detour into a deep ravine of ridiculousness – an area with which she is intimately familiar.

Lauren Boebert

The Hill published a story Wednesday morning with breaking news coverage of a critical matter facing the American people…

“‘Due to industry-wide supply chain disruptions, some Chick-fil-A restaurants are experiencing a shortage of select items, like sauces. We are actively working to make adjustments to solve this issue quickly and apologize to our Guests for any inconvenience,’ a Chick-fil-A spokesperson said.”

Holy Shitake Mushrooms! First a deadly pandemic, and now this? Haven’t we suffered enough? Well, according to QAnon Rep. Lauren Boebert our tribulations have been thrust upon us by the singular cause of every problem known to mankind for the past four months: President Joe Biden. Or so says Boebert…

That’s right! Somehow Biden is responsible for the Chick-fil-A sauce shortage that is devastating the nation. Boebert doesn’t say exactly how Biden screwed this up, but she’s certain that he’s the one who did it. Just as certain as she is that Biden’s climate plan includes cutting 90% of red meat from our diets. It’s a coordinated plot to hit the beef industry first, and then – BAM – go after poultry when people try to adjust. It’s downright diabolical.

Some folks are saying that Boebert herself is a double agent, carrying out her own role in this dastardly scheme. Last year it was reported that “her pork sliders allegedly poisoned dozens of people at a local rodeo, making them nauseous and sending some home with bloody diarrhea.” So there goes pork products.

Before long the Democrats (or is it socialists?) will force us all to become – GASP – vegetarians. Or worse, we will all simply be starved to make the planet more hospitable to the non-human species from whom it was stolen. Boebert’s comrade, Tomi Lahren, may have already caught on to that conspiracy:

Never mind that the sauce shortages were caused by interruptions in distribution due to gas shortages caused by the Russian-affiliated cyber-ransom attack on Colonial Pipeline. See how the dots are connecting? Then Fox News played its part by frightening their viewers into believing that the supply of gas would soon dwindle, so they had better stock up.

In the meantime, you may want to to start hoarding condiments from your favorite fast food restaurants before they have all disappeared. There may not be much time left. And if we aren’t careful, the only source of nutrition left will be from Del Taco. And if you don’t know what that means, ask Tucker Carlson who has uncovered the “white replacement theory,” a plot by Democrats to flood the electorate with non-white voters. There are dark days ahead folks.

UPDATE: Naturally, Fox News was all over this frightful story, shouting that “Chick-fil-A sauce shortage blamed on ‘Joe Biden’s America'” And they featured tweets by numerous worried and sauce-less patriots such as Josh Mandel, Clay Travis, and Ted Cruz:

Fox News ‘Judge’ Jeanine Pirro ‘Cancels’ Guest for Saying Biden is ‘Making America Great Again’

Fox News is at it again. The network that virtually created the scandalous concept of “Cancel Culture” is, ironically, the most prolific purveyor of it. Over the past couple of decades they have feverishly “canceled” hundreds of people, products, and ideas that conflict with their ultra-conservative political and social doctrine.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Jeanine Pirro

This hypocrisy was glaringly evident again on Saturday’s episode of the hilariously misnamed “Justice with Jeanine Pirro.” The program began with an extended rant about immigration problems that she insisted were all the fault of Joe Biden who has been President for all of two months, and whom Fox News regards as both boring and diabolical.

Pirro then brought on immigration attorney David Leopold who, when he wasn’t being interrupted by Pirro, had the temerity to tell her to her face that “Very few things that I hear on this show tonight have been facts.”

Leopold was referring to Pirro’s wildly inaccurate data on immigration. He correctly stated that 150,000 migrants came across the southern border in 2019, during Donald Trump’s term. Pirro wrongly contradicted him saying that this February’s numbers of 100,000 migrants were the highest in fifteen years. But the official statistics from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency proves that Pirro was wrong and Leopold was right. That disparity led to this hostile reaction by Pirro to being corrected:

Leopold: President Biden kept his promise. He’s putting COVID relief out there. He’s making America better. He’s making America great again…
Pirro: I’m stopping you right there. I don’t tolerate lies on my show. He is bringing COVID into this country

First of all, anyone who has watched more than ten minutes of her program knows that Pirro not only tolerates lies, she is the most frequent source of them. Pirro would have been more correct if she had said that she didn’t tolerate lies by anyone other than herself and her rightist confederates.

More to the point, Pirro was parroting false assertions from right-wing propagandists including Texas governor Greg Abbott who falsely claimed that “The Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into our communities who had COVID.” The truth is that immigrants were actually testing positive for COVID at half the rate of native Texans as a result of Abbott’s flaunting CDC guidelines.

On the same episode, Pirro hosted right-wing rage-aholics Tomi Lahren and Leo Terrell to attack Biden’s mental acuity (video below). Lahren started off with her conspiracy theory that “The left is going to dump Joe Biden in five months, maybe six months. Put Kamala in, as we all knew. We were never supposed to talk about this.” Which is odd because they talk about it all the time.

Lahren then goes on to explicitly malign Biden as “mentally unstable.” Never mind that the American people had an opportunity last November to assess that and they voted for Biden in overwhelming numbers (8 million more votes than Trump). Polls (including a Fox News poll) even showed that voters considered Donald Trump as being the mentally unsound candidate.

Lahren continued with a flagrant lie about an alleged attempt by Democrats to take the nuclear codes away from Biden. What she dishonestly distorted was a letter sent to Biden by House Democrats suggesting that the power to launch a nuclear attack should not rest in one person (the president).

However, the letter wasn’t a critique of Biden’s mental acuity and never mentioned that. Quite the opposite. It specifically referred to Trump who recklessly taunted foreign leaders with threats of his nuclear prowess. “Past presidents,” the letter said, “have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concerns about the president’s judgment.” So it was Trump who prompted the suggestion that the president shouldn’t be the sole possessor of that authority. The letter even cited a Trump tweet from January of 2018, that bragged maniacally that his “Nuclear Button” was “much bigger & more powerful than” North Korea’s Kim Jong Un:

Pirro then turned to Terrell who ranted hysterically that Biden was “an embarrassment” because Vladimir Putin challenged him to a debate. Huh? That actually suggests that Biden appropriately rankled Putin who never needed to debate Trump because they were on the same side. Trump was Putin’s lapdog, so what would be the point of a debate?

This is the sort of fringe crackpottery that is routinely dispensed on Pirro’s program, as well as most of the rest of Fox’s schedule. It is wholly dedicated to advancing a radical conservatism that is utterly out of line with the American people. Unfortunately, it continues to disinform enough dimwitted viewers, some of whom resort to violence in pursuit of their Fox-inspired, fantastical delusions. It’s up to the rest of us to keep setting the record straight and supporting reality-based news sources. Yeah, it’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.
