I switched to FOX news...

..for a few minutes.

The conversation got around to Biden's health and mental "competence." One guy said he couldn't give a spontaneous answer to a press conference question without making a gaff. Another mentioned him nodding off at one of the world leaders meetings. Another brought up Biden's low polling numbers as if they had hit some historical record...

I listen to Biden quite a bit and other than an occasional stutter, his replies are articulate and on point with his agenda.

I have listened to Trump going on 6 years and have yet to hear him say anything even close to intelligible, let alone articulate...and I'm pretty sure he holds the record for low approval polling numbers.

But FOX doesn't bring up that comparison...

1. That's what you get for turning on Fox.

It's geared toward making Republicans/Trumpers as happy as possible. Say good things about Trump, bad things about Biden, the economy, and the border. Over and over again. You don't need to turn it on; you know that's what they're going to say.

45 seconds has been my tolerable limit record. Last time I tuned in the caravans were coming again!

4. A whole lot of us are smarter than MANGO MUSSOLINI....And by doing some "SENSITIVE BEHAVIORS"....we

could have saved thousands of livers...Maybe tens of thousands of lives...

Mango (Donald Trump) didn't care about anyone but himself...and he still doesn't care about anyone but himself

....................It really is that simple....

13. But one has to wonder...

..how far it will go. The vigilantes, the violence, the citizen's arrests? All these Fox folks can't be ready for a civil war nor interested in being complicit.

6. I had a post awhile back saying Biden hasn't made a statement that would crack TFG's top 20

insane comments, or fuckups. Then we proceeded to throw out a whole bunch he hasn't even come close to.

8. that's what you get when you listen yo Fox

You may be curious to know what they're saying. I'll save you the time and trouble. Fox is hate TV. Don't tune it in. It will pollute your mind and emotions. They are professional hate and fear mongers. They get paid big bucks to get people fearful, angry, and confused. They are like Chicken Little, screeching "The sky is falling. The sky is falling."

14. This week one day I watched both CNN and Fox at the gym for about an hour.

It is easy to see why we are losing the information war. CNN carried the Arbery trial for that entire hour.
Meanwhile Fox ignored the trial other than saying at the bottom of the screen that prosecutors were making
their closing argument instead they did an entire hour attacking Democrats. Here are some of the subjects
that I remember.

CRT
Biden's poll numbers
Inflation
Supply chain problems
VP Harris and Pete Buttigieg feud
Americans in Afghanistan saying the State Department had never contacted them.
The Taliban surge in Afghanistan
Mass shoplifting attacks in liberal California
UC Davis de funding campus police
Russia now has a hyper-sonic missile

Fox doesn't waste their time showing a trial in real time. They will show their viewers their edited version of the trial.

15. Find a talking point - drown the audience in it

Regardless of where it started (Trump) it becomes a “known” and anything that can sort of be twisted to agree with it is piled on.

16. And assolini repeated the same thing over and over

I never hear President Biden saying the same thing over and over like him.

Not hear him say how great he is!

I am so happy and proud Joe Biden is our President!

25. Low Class

Biden grew up with a speech impediment—a stutter. He worked hard to overcome his challenges, and is an inspiration to those who face a similar childhood affliction.

As an adult, there are still traces in his speech because he manually learned to overcome the natural urge he has to stutter. For FoxNews to harp on his stutter as evidence of mental aging is both stupid and cruel.

On-brand for Fox.
