So I forced myself to watch Fox news for one hour, it was hard.

I now really understand mind of a trump voter.

My brain hurts now.

Talk about dumbing down.

If these Trump voters just watch Fox news their brains are gone.

1. Aside from commercials, how many things did they try to sell you?

Product placements? Donate money?

The last few times Iíve flipped over there Iíve caught a lot of sales going on.

Oh and the actual ads basically prey on old people.

2. Go for a short walk. Clear your mind. Listen to some music.

You have been exposed to a minor amount of brainwashing. That is the pain you feel. Brain cells were actually dying.

Stay well.

We just have to walk over to our dock.

We never leave the farm.

4. The Faux Entertainment channel, sorry, can't call that News -

is somewhat akin to a military experiment in mind control grown beyond comprehension.

6. It may have something to do watching their 401-k's go up 50% until February 2020

If the market tanks between now and October, tRump will lose in a landslide.
It is already down from February high's.

7. It's not just dumbing down....

Itís their whole tone about everything. Whenever they mention a Democrat, they practically spit the name out in a spew of vitriol and eye-rolling. I remember way back when, when Gretchen Carlson was still on, and she was talking about Obama, and she said something like ďPresident Obama says everyone will have health insurance - yeah right.Ē Itís their tone and those little asides and eye rolls that really get to you. Ugh.

16. Chris Wallace is semi-reasonable

He can ask tough questions and you can think of him as "Starter Fox News". Fox and Friends are vapid but mostly harmless.

Watch out for Carlson and especially Hannity. They are Orange Kool-Aid purveyors.

20. Fox news blame China for the virus.

And tried to blame President Obama also.

Never anything about Trump's daughter getting lots of trademarks from China.

Didn't Trump work a trade deal with China about this time.

He knew about the virus for a long time.

21. I watched all the episodes of Roger Ailes on Netflix. Trump is Roger Ailes to the core.

Now it is on DVD only at Netflix. "The Loudest Voice" It was an excellent movie but vey depressing that one person had so much power, Murdock helped but is really was Ailes that had the vision and made Fox News as it is today.

24. I have tried

I am not man enough to take Fox News. My blood pressure pegs the meter. Same for Trump's pressers, I felt that I needed to watch the first couple of them, then I decided it wasn't worth it. I figured if he told the truth about anything it would make news headlines all over the world and I could catch up.
