AOC had this to say about billionaires:

Quote:"I do think that a system that allows billionaires to exist when there are parts of Alabama where people are still getting ringworm because they don’t have access to public health is wrong."

If you click the link, you'll see Fox contributor Marc Thiessen's response of "ringworm isn't deadly."
Laid off journalists this week have been subjected to death threats.  One image was a Photoshopped meme of Tucker Carlson:

https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/tech-news/4...ts-n963001

Quote:Shortly after he tweeted the news of his own layoff, Nick Wing checked his inbox at HuffPost and saw an email with a few pictures from a troll.

One was an image of President Trump, and another was a Photoshopped meme of Fox News’ Tucker Carlson. The edited image shows two bodies hanging from a tree next to the words “Day of the Rope,” a far-right meme about their desire to execute journalists. Underneath Carlson, where the scrolling cable news ticker would usually appear, it reads “JUST KILL THEM. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN.”

Wing was one of many journalists who were let go by BuzzFeed and HuffPost this week and were sent death threats from trolls organizing their efforts on the far-right message board 4chan. Many of those targeted by the harassment campaign did not cover the far-right, including Wing, whose beat focused on inequality and guns.

The Carlson meme can be found here.  It's NSFW:

"Duck Dynasty" guy just doesn't get the whole health care thing:

Quote:Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson went on Fox Business today and said we don't need healthcare because God gives us free healthcare.

"Doctors can give you a temporary reprieve, but they cannot save you from physical death. The doctors who treat you, they die too."
Just ask noted not-healer Jesus Christ!
Well, this a take:

Quote:"As I told you my 2019 resolution is to say things on air that I say off air. I don’t think I’ve washed my hands for 10 years. Really I don’t really wash my hands."

"Germs are not a real thing. I can’t see them, therefore they’re not real."

"Fox & Friends" is quite the show.
Well, this is quite amusing...

FYI- Rutger Bregman was the historian who recently called out rich folks at Davos

Quote:Rutger Bregman‏Verified account @rcbregman

So @TuckerCarlson just called me a ‘fucking moron’ during a prerecord for his show, for pointing out that he’s a millionaire funded by billionaires. Let’s see if they’ll air it. ‘Did they get it on audio?? Fuck fuck fuck’ we heard them say here.. (Yes, we did.)

4:53 PM - 11 Feb 2019
Quote:Okay, so now@TuckerCarlson sent me this email, after I asked him when the interview is gonna air (was supposed to be on tonight). Stay tuned.

I guess they are afraid their viewers will mistake it for actual FOX News programming
Laura Ingraham would like conservatives to know that media coverage of the Coast Guard lieutenant who plotted to murder Trump's enemies is "boring."

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/laura-ingrah...-smollett/

Quote:On Thursday night, Fox News host Laura Ingraham suggested that the media is only covering the Coast Guard lieutenant who plotted to kill Democrats because its a convenient distraction from Jussie Smollett‘s legal troubles.

The remarks came during a portion of Ingraham’s show where she commented that the Democratic platform is about selling “victimhood,” and nothing else as far as substantial political arguments. Ingraham presented this as a trend among Democrats and the media to use “fabricated tales of victimization to divert attention from other inconvenient truths.”

“It was Smollett who crashed in and took the focus off Virginia governor Ralph ‘Blackface’ Northam, and his lieutenant governor Justin Fairfax, who’s accused by two women of sexual abuse. Boy, that Virginia story faded fast, didn’t it? And now the Smollett anti-Trump drama has blown up, the media has jumped on the story of that whack-job Coast Guard lieutenant who wanted to murder Democrat politicians…This is so predictable, it’s almost boring.”
Has Tucker Carlson always been a disgusting piece of shit, even before becoming part of FOX News?

https://www.mediamatters.org/research/20...nts/223092

Yes, yes he has.
How did he not end up on the Supreme Court?
Roger Ailes’ ghost needs to be quarantined.

George Carlin said it best: fuck Tucker, Tucker sucks.
The Tucker Carlson thing is a non-story. Shocking comments made on a shock jock radio show? You don’t say.

What is a story is Jeanine Pirro’s criticism of Ilhan Omar for wearing a hijab.

Omar is an anti-Semite, but to say she is practicing Sharia law because she wears a hijab shows a total lack of understanding Islam.

At least Fox News immediately condemned it.

She isnt ant-semite; he's anti Zionism. She specifically is against the power and influence of a pro-Israel lobby firm and the continuing support for Netanyahu's aggresive policies, which had differed a lot from the proteccionism focused policy of his predecessors.
Eh, Tucker Carlson does things on any given day that are much worse than running your yap on a shock jock's radio show. So dumb.

Right-wing Christians shielding the people they used to call "Christ Killers" from any criticism is quite a sight. I gotta get me one of those lobbyists.

Well, shit....i guess if BOTH Carlson and catartik say it’s a non-story I suppose it must be true.

Seriously, though, did you read through those transcripts? The guys a certified shit-nugget. There’s even a long section where he bad-mouths Canadians. I did enjoy the hosts warning to him that he should watch what he says because Canadians would; “...shove a hockey stick up his ass...and make him bleed, internally “.

Clearly, the host has been to Winnipeg.
Get ready for more Tucker Tapes, this time racist/ethnic putdowns:

That...should put him back in the good graces of his Fox overlords.
I'm all Tucker'd out..
That's a quality pun Fraid.
Tucker had some things to say about a Miss Teen USA pageant:

https://twitter.com/joncoopertweets/stat...2917299200
I only got about a minute into that before I had to stop.

"You think he plowed that? I'd plow that! She doesn't look 16. I think she might be 18 now. It'd be great to have a wife that dumb."

Hey dude..... Fuck. Your. Self..
I'm going to go out on a limb and say Tucker doesn't have a job by the end of the week, particularly after the advertisers' meeting today.

Ron Howard: This will never happen.
Advertisers bailing is great and makes me laugh, but Carlson/Ingraham/Hannity are going to cling to those jobs like grim death. Pirro seems more vulnerable than Carlson, since her ratings aren't as good I MEAN because what she said was so wrong.
He's already on "vacation," as Fox News hosts are wont to do once the advertisers start pulling away. Sometimes, like Ingraham, they survive. Sometimes, like O'Reilly, they do not. We shall see.
I'll just never understand how a grown ass man could look at a 16-18 year old and say that shit out loud like it's no big deal. It's one thing to think "man...that is one GORGEOUS lady." Some teenagers do look 25. But to keep going like that when you KNOW they're 16? That's a damn child. You're talking about "plowing" someone who can't even see an R rated movie without a parent and is only just a VERY few years from getting Barbies from Santa Claus. I mean....what the fuck. Did I read that right earlier that they had a 15 year old masseuse hired at Mar-a-Lago? Or am I mistaken? Yeah, a 15 year old can take my order at Dairy Queen, or seat my party at Chili's...that's fine. Whatever. But even just an actual innocent massage, I don't want a 15 year olds hands on me like that. That shit ain't cool. Anybody that'll say shit like that oughta be getting all their computer hard drives confiscated by the cops..
Because a lot of grown ass men never learn to look at females as anything but potential sex partners/objects.
I'd guess that this is enough for Fox to cut bait with Carlson. He'll join up with Alex Jones and Bubba The Love Sponge to start some new, not as popular but still plenty lucrative cesspool of an online conservative jibjaw network.

It probably doesn't help Tucker's case any that he just went viral a few weeks ago for that humiliating tantrum he threw at the Dutch economist 5 minutes into an interview that started with him fawning over the guy.
He went full Tucker.

Never go full Tucker.
Tucker?

...damn near killed 'er

So maybe stop having underage beauty pagents? I mean seriously who the fuck thought that was a good idea?
The whole pageant industry has been a glorified meat market since day one.

Of course. For years it was basically low grade porn and im pretty sure everyone involved knows that no matter what face they are trying to put on it now. And im perfectly fine with that if you are an adult and decide to do it, just like porn. But with porn you can't perform until you are 18. Pageants should be the same way.
The issue with celebrities getting involved in a big scandal is that, of course, it's easy to pretend that they're the only part of the story:

https://www.mediaite.com/tv/fox-bizs-var...ent-trump/

Quote:Fox Business’ Stuart Varney has pinned the college admission scandal making the news on parents who ‘hate Trump.”

Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin were among the Hollywood and corporate elite who were nabbed in a high-priced cheating scandal that created a side door to admission through athletics, despite the fact the children involved were not high-level athletes. Gaming college admission tests was also part of the scam that was made public this week.

Speaking of the college scandal on Fox Nation, Varney said this: “The parents are rich and famous. The very people, the elites, who tell us how to live, how we are all deplorables.”

Then he added: “I don’t want to hear another moral lecture from Hollywood…I haven’t asked, but I’m pretty sure those parents hate Trump.”

You do have to hand it to conservatives for simultaneously arguing that only liberals are super successful people and that liberals don't know the first thing about success.
Let's see Trump's SAT scores!
