The realization that Fox News was gonna be trouble was while eating lunch in Daytona, Florida, a decade or so ago. Fox News was blaring bullshit so I asked if the tube could be turned to CNN. The crowd turned on me…
“You one of ‘dem LIB’RALS?” he inquired. Upon looking around I could see every eye in the joint on me. I looked my questioner in the eye and said, “I prefer my news, like my whiskey, straight.”
“You sayin’ Fox News is SLANTED?” he asked. “Yes,” was the reply, as I turned toward my half-eaten plate of food…
Then there was the time I visited a Chess friend…The TV was tuned to Fox News while we attempted to play Chess, which could be the reason I lost, come to think of it…I digress…My friend went to talk with his wife, so I turned to CNN. This brought her outta the back part of the house. “We do NOT watch CNN!” she began. “You cannot believe anything they say!” Her eyes were blazin’ as she left in a huff. I flipped the station back to Fox News, though not without effort, before she returned.
She stomped back into the room carrying a placard proudly made for some Tea Party rally they had attended. I sat there and listened as she began to spew a vitriol laced diatribe as I looked to her husband, hoping he would throw me a life preserver. All he did was roll his eyes and throw his hands up as if to say, “You can’t do anything with her when she’s like this.”
Having read extensively about memory I know they are formed by emotional experiences…
I never thought I would live to hear a Fox News personality say what you are about to read, and hopefully, hear:
Fox News Host Neil Cavuto Tells Trump He Stinks In Fiery Takedown
“I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating.”
By Rebecca Shapiro 05/03/2018
Fox News host Neil Cavuto had some harsh words for Donald Trump on Thursday: Mr. President, you stink.
The host listed some of Trump’s worst lies and misstatements, including claiming there was widespread voter fraud in the 2016 election and the recent revelation that he repaid his personal lawyer Michael Cohen for $130,000 in hush money given to porn star Stephanie Clifford, known as Stormy Daniels, after he’d repeatedly denied knowing about the situation.
“How can you drain the swamp if you’re the one that keeps muddying the water?” Cavuto asked. “You didn’t know about that $130,000 payment to a porn star until you did.”
Cavuto, one of the few hosts on Fox News who calls out the president, said Trump cannot criticize the press for reporting “fake news” when he repeatedly makes false statements without correction.
“Your base probably might not care,” Cavuto added. “But you should. I guess you’re too busy draining the swamp to ever stop and smell the stink you’re creating. That’s your doing. That’s your stink. Mr. President, that’s your swamp.”
