Hucky Boo Boo Sanders Hired As Fox News Contributor

Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a career out of lying in service to Trump, and she did it while on the taxpayer’s dime. Turns out, that was her version of broadcasting school, because now she’s graduated into the big time of mendacity, a gig as a contributor on Fox News. Sanders will make her debut on Fox on September 6. Mark that on your calendar, you won’t want to miss it. Wait! Hasn't @SarahHuckabee been working for Fox since she joined the Trump campaign? Or is that Fox has been working for the Trump campaign? It's all so confusing. — B Koplow (@bmkoplow5) August 22, 2019 And Sanders isn’t the only one hitting the airwaves. Sean Spicer is signed up to perform on “Dancing With The Stars.” Just think, friends, you get to see both former White House press secretaries on the silver screen, once again. Spicer couldn’t sell his book, but maybe he can sell his hoofing, who knows? He could become the Baryshnikov of Bullshit. But there’s an interesting pattern here: 1. Show business and politics have now become as one in the age of Trump; 2. There’s no disgrace in lying to the American people. Au contraire, there’s a contract in it. Great lesson to teach the young uns, perfidy pays. pic.twitter.com/7twQMsWxD8 — Andrew Hsieh #JS4PM 🇪🇺🇬🇧🇭🇰🔶 (@AndrewOnSeeAIR) August 22, 2019 There was only really two places Sarah Sanders could have gone, Fox News or Confession. — Jeremy Newberger (@jeremynewberger) August 22, 2019 Confession would have taken self honesty and awareness, plus some kind of a moral compass. Those attributes are incompatible with Trumpites, and non existent in Sanders. Mendacity is so much a part of her makeup that now it’s her defining feature — and she’s getting paid for it. She’s been admitted into the pantheon of world class dissemblers, Fox News. An interesting spin on “to thine own self be true.”  

Ouch! Fox Barks at Trump Talking Smack

Yessss. As referenced earlier today in my more thought-provoking post, Trump lashed out at Fox for having the gall to publish its own poll and then stand by the results. I mean, y’all can probably near “fill-in” what Trump had to say about all this, but let’s just summarize and avoid reading the entire quote: To wit: “Fox is different, blah blah, They used to be good to me, blah blah, they better be careful because I control this or that, blah blah.” Right. So, normally Fox would just silently sit by, perhaps with hands on hips, very slight shake of the head, and move to the next story. Except, breathe in Brett Breiar: “Fox has not changed,” Baier said in response. “We have a news side and an opinion side. Opinion folks express their opinions. We do polls.” “Mr. President, we’ve invited you on Special Report many times. We’d love to have you back on. You’ve talked to George Stephanopoulos and Chuck Todd. Come on back. Me, Chris Wallace, the news side cover it fair, balanced, and unafraid.” Did I hear that right? Did he just say …? Looks to me like Baier just said: “Dude, fuck off.” But, you know, used way more words. But that’s exactly what he said! Does Fox know something we don’t know? Ha! Want a conspiracy theory?? They did manipulate their own poll, they found Trump polling 5-10 points lower than what they published, but they didn’t want to be rude and all that? No. They didn’t. They do know, that this might all come to an end, and that if and when it comes, they don’t want to be the ones on the Titanic running up and down telling people it will be okay, it’s just a temporary problem. Kinda cool. Keep it up, Fox! I can’t believe I just said that. **** Peace, y’all. Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com: As I said, I try to answer all, it just may take a day or two. I appreciate the tremendous support.

There Is Nothing So Wretched that KellyAnne Cannot Make Worse

Nothing, and I mean nothing, makes me miss President Obama more than an appearance by Kellyanne Conway on my electric TV. Obviously, you might retort; “But of course Trump is ten times worse because he is the actual president.” Oh, yeah? Except Trump does something that makes me want to crawl under the Earth’s crust, and then Kellyanne appears on television to explain why I don’t see Trump’s inner-genius. I am more bothered by the actual human being knowing she is being a lesser life form than the lesser life form not understanding what it is to be human. If you follow what I just wrote, congrats. I sure don’t. But it feels right. Anyway, today, Kellyanne went wandering into the her favorite habitat, her land of milk and honey, the Eden we call hell, aka “Fox News.” But even Fox appeared turned off by the “president’s” ridiculous conspiracy tweet involving the Clintons. So, she got asked to explain the dangerous idiocy. Something about the question made Kellyanne sick to her stomach, because she threw-up sentence-like fragments all over my television. Now you’re asking “How bad was it, ’cause I ain’t goin’ over there to find out.” Your loyal servant as always: “I think the president just wants everything to be investigated,” Conway told Fox News’ Bill Hemmer. “There was some unsealed information implicating some people very high up.” She continued: “I will say, Bill, that there’s always this rush to ‘we need transparency, we need accountability,’ when it involves fictional accusations like collusion with Russia to swing an election. This seems to be very concrete in that Jeffrey Epstein has done some very bad things over a number of years.” Yes, there were some high-up people implicated, people like your boss, who specializes in projection. And, Kellyanne? You still didn’t answer the question. Readers? I need your help in deciphering what the ever-living-fuck the “rush to judgment” in the Russia thing has to do with anything about anything besides why Trump should be impeached. Every time I hear Kellyanne speak, I feel IQ points slipping out of my skull. You folks carrying around 140 of those things wouldn’t even miss them. I am down around 88, lose a couple and I am having trouble making change for a dollar. The only, and I mean the only, delicious irony to all this, is that she happens to be married to a man who, if they speak at all, tells her that she works for the worst president in history. He probably reminds her that she is wasting what might have been a decent career as a small town real-estate agent, had she ever learned to keep her mouth shut. I bet they don’t sleep together, either, but now we’re getting pretty far afield. A field I don’t want to even see. I should stop now, for my health and yours. As I noted, nothing quite bothers me like … no, no, my therapist said “deep breaths, deep breaths.” **** Peace, y’all. Jason jmiciak@yahoo.com

Fox News Calls Dayton Shooter a Leftist, Seeking to Distract from El Paso

I am simply stunned and am going to leave much of the analysis to the growing number of commenters and their perceptive points. The title says it all. But the story springs from the FoxNews website, and so I cannot guarantee the exact same message gets infused into all their programming today, but seems near certain. The premise of their point, that the shooter was a “leftist” is dubious enough. I am fine with stating that he was not a frothing at the mouth maniacal Far Right Winger. But, the entirely self-serving point of the article leaps from the page. To start off, from FoxNews: Police in Dayton say they’re still seeking a motive for Connor Betts’ shooting spree that killed nine people, including his sister. But whatever turns up, we hope no one blames Elizabeth Warren. We say that because the news site Heavy.com, which gained access to Betts’ Twitter account before it was taken down, reports that his politics appear to have been left of center. They go on to note that the guy stated everyone should “vote blue.” But they do not give the date, of the tweet. What if it was years ago?. They note he declared himself to be a leftist. Never mind that none of this has been confirmed, least of all by the police. So, we’re left with a Fox-created thesis written without a motive established by police. Hell, Fox News even states “whatever turns up,” meaning THEY are not positive of the motive, yet they’re quite comfortable simply noting that Heavy.com (have you heard of them?) states that his twitter account makes the guy “appear to have been left of center.” What does that even mean? We will all note that that with regard to this shooter’s motive, Fox is not twisting our attention around to video games, not the importance of family, mental illness, anti-nationalism, or abortion. They’re just sayin,’ “left of center,” right? They are just sayin’ it because that’s really all they want to say till they get to their “real point.” With incredible – meaning not believable – magnanimity, they state they hope no one blames Elizabeth Warren. Yeah, me, too – since Elizabeth Warren doesn’t spend her time talking about “invasions” of people across the border, the “infestation” of people across the border, nor favor imprisoning people like animals, or even having laughed off a person yelling “shoot them,” when discussing answers to the “problems at the border.” Moreover, whatever else the man’s motives may have been, they were definitely not racial, since he killed both African Americans and white people. He did not leave a political manifesto justifying his attack. People that begin by killing family rarely do. So, for sure, right? Do not blame Warren, since Warren never encouraged punching someone in the face, talking about good people on both sides, and pretending not to know David Duke, while disbanding the DHS domestic terrorism unit. Someone else did that. Fox’s only motivation for publishing this essay (which first appeared in the Wall Street Journal, but they are now indistinguishable), is to try to find some room for Trump to wiggle free from blame in the El Paso shooting. I know it, you know it, hell even the Fox audience knows it, they just want cover […]
