On Tuesday, the United States—and Donald Trump more specifically—took a hit when the United Nations General Assembly laughed at claims of greatness made by the president. This came during a clunker of a speech in which the Donald spoke of the neofascist bullshit he and his cohorts represent to the world. Fox News didn’t want its fearless leader to look all red in the face—except he was very red in the face.
And since Fox News is a propaganda mill for fascism, it did what propaganda machines do—it lied, cutting out footage of the roomful of world leaders laughing at Donald Trump’s claims of awesomeness.

The responses to Trump’s claims came fast and furious.

Trump and Fox News forgot to compare notes, as the white supremacist in chief decided to gaslight the world instead of pretending it didn’t happen.
