While it’s true that the vast majority of what Fox News airs is essentially nothing more than pro-Trump propaganda, there are still those rare few voices on the network who’ve done what so many others have refused to do — tell the truth about this “president.”
Chris Wallace is one of those voices.
The Fox News host brilliantly mocked Trump’s very bad week by running down seven of the biggest scandals/controversies that played out over the last several days:
“Hope Hicks has quit, the person closest to the president among his White House Staff; the president hates his attorney general; the deputy attorney general is defending the attorney general from the attack from the president; Gary Cohen, the national economic advisor, is threatening to quit because of the fact the president announced these tariffs over his objection; the president reportedly wants to oust his national security advisor [H.R. McMaster]; somebody is trying to get Jared Kushner; and there’s a report in The New York Times.. that the president is telling Kushner that he’s sorry he’s taking all these slings and arrows while, he’s supposedly, at the same time, saying to John Kelly, help me get Kushner and Ivanka out of here.”
“So, other than that, it’s sweetness, light, puppies, and unicorns here in D.C.,” Wallace told fellow Fox News colleague Shep Smith.
Keep in mind that everything Wallace listed here happened in a matter of just a few days. It also doesn’t include Trump publicly stating that he believes police officers should have the right to confiscate guns while ignoring due process, or the report concerning comments he made where he praised the Chinese president for pushing to end term limits, saying that’s something he’d like to see happen here.
No matter how long this goes on — or how absolutely insane all of this gets — it’s still mind-boggling for me to think about. This is all coming from the leader of the party that went out of its way to paint Barack Obama as the “unconstitutional, corrupt dictator who was going to take away all our guns and was plagued in scandals,” as they sit there and defend this national disgrace while pretending this is all perfectly normal.
What’s even more maddening to me is that I’m supremely confident that once Trump’s no longer in office, most of these same Republicans are going to instantly begin distancing themselves from him, act like they never really supported him, blame the next Democrat in office for all the problems he causes, and push preposterous “outrage” over stupid things against that future Democratic president such as, you know, wearing tan suits or holding a freaking coffee cup during a salute.
You know, “indefensible atrocities” such as that.
I used to joke that the reality about the Republican Party had become so absurd that even the best writers on Saturday Night Live couldn’t make this crap up.
Unfortunately, that joke has now become reality.
