"that's not real" Fox News host informs viewers Time cover is really a drawing NOT A PHOTO

Fox News Host’s ‘That’s Not Real’ Rebuke Of Satirical Trump Time Cover Baffles Many
“The only clue the casual viewer would have that this deceptive deep fake is not real is that it’s obviously a drawing,” one Twitter user mocked anchor Harris Faulkner.

Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner baffled many on Friday with her criticism of Time magazine’s satirical cover depicting President Joe Biden standing in a trashed Oval Office that he’d inherited from former President Donald Trump.

“I mean, that’s not real. That picture isn’t real,” the anchor continued. “Don’t we care, I thought we were a nation who cared about the facts?”

“Let’s see if others in the mainstream media have the gumption to call out the fact that that’s just a complete lie,” she added.

1. Clearly a fictional account

Because Joe is not there with 15 other efficient and competent people. And because he is standing there and not jumping in with them to working to sort out and clean up the mess and get some good work done.
Democrats work together.
They are not ruled by a fascist who does nothing while the underlings tear each other apart trying to please their alpha.

2. The right was never known for their intelligence

clearly, the concept of political satire eludes their tiny brains

3. So did the genius come up with this on her own and truly not get it?

Or did staff see it and also not get it?

Or did staff write this and set her up?

Any way round it’s pitiful.

8. I was thinking the same. No one stopped this? Hey. You know that's a drawing right?

In the 2 minute clip the former Obama person (never heard of her) mentions that it’s a “rendering” but is either just going along or letting the host take. Walk in the woods by herself.

4. Repugs are incapable of grasping the concept of humor or satire

IE, the one time they tried to produce a comedy show akin to The Daily Show, it failed miserably.

18. I remember that. They desperately tried to counter SNL.

They never came up with a right-wing comedian. Dennis Miller failed.

22. The best comedy either punches up or focuses on our shared experiences that everyone can relate to.

Pretty much all conservative "comedy" is either divisive or it punches down: mocking minorities, making racist, sexist jokes, etc.

6. "I thought we were a nation who cared about the facts?"

Well, that's rich. All of a sudden Fox News cares about facts?

If this is how she responds to a magazine cover, just imagine what she thinks when she reads political cartoons. No one can possibly be this stupid.

9. NEWSFLASH: Fox News has admitted it has nothing to do now, but Fuck with the REAL News

Fox News has admitted it has nothing to do now, but Fuck with the REAL News
by me | Posted Jan 23, 2021 6:42 am


Fox news has once again called for a war on the REAL news.

In an unheralded attempt to fuck the world, Fox has moved to fire everyone there who believes that their News is NOT real news, and in the process has made the world a lot safer for demagogues, tyrants, and the BAT-SHIT CRAZY people.

"Seventy-four million people are ripe for the taking," said an anonymous source at Fox. "It's been the plan since day one."

As of this posting, Trump has refused to answer the phone in his bathroom at Mar-A-Largo.

Although, it has been revealed by another anonymous source that he is currently unavailable because he is in deep negotiations with his penis while listening to this song:





We'll keep you informed as the story develops.

11. So does that mean a lot of Fox viewers think the photoshopped images of Trump in a Superman costume

came from an actual photoshoot?

25. A nation that cares about facts, Harris?

Let's go with one fact: Who had the bigger crowd for his inauguration: Barack Obama in 2009 or Donald Trump in 2017? It turns out that whopper was just the overture for a symphony of dissembling from the Trump administration, top to bottom. You're all het up about a cartoon, but you can't even be bothered with the multiple times Trump claimed the Covid-19 pandemic would just disappear, like magic. 400,000 Americans (and counting) have died, but when was the first, last, or any time in between you had something to say about Trump's mendacity on that point?
