Farage Has Meltdown Over Trump Baby Balloon

London is expecting up to 250,000 people protesting in the streets against President Donald Trump. The “man baby” Trump balloon will return and was even used in a Sky News ad declaring, “He’s back!”

But according to Fox News and its guest commentator – Nigel Farage, the man whose alleged falsehoods helped pave Britain’s way into Brexit – it’s “all a bit of show,” and the protestors are being bussed in and paid, for which no proof has been offered:

They are also claiming – without proof – Trump is actually very popular among many in Britain, and many of the 250,000 are actually not protestors, but Trump supporters.

Among the 250,000, “there are people on both sides of the aisle,” Fox News insists.

Farage had a meltdown over the Trump baby balloon, berating and blaming the Mayor of London for it:

Fox & Friends Tries to Convince Americans to Not Watch ‘Irrelevant’ and ‘Boring Hearings About Impeachment’

Published

on

Fox & Friends” is working extremely hard to ensure as few Americans as possible watch this week’s House Judiciary Committee impeachment hearings, perhaps because they are designed to inform the American public about why impeaching this president is important.

Several times Monday morning the “Fox & Friends” co-hosts and contributors told viewers Wednesday’s impeachment hearing will be boring, while falsely claiming Americans are not interested in impeachment, and would rather be Christmas shopping.

“It’s going to be like a lecture,” co-host Brian Kilmeade tells viewers, noting the witnesses will be lawyers and historians. “If you were bored by the last one, you’re gonna be really bored by this one.”

Later, Fox News Business’ Stuart Varney is added to the couch, once again talking about how “boring” the impeachment hearings will be.

“I just want to point out the contrast here. You’ve got a booming Trump economy, terrific holiday sales, and what’ve we got in Washington DC? These boring hearings about impeachment, increasingly irrelevant and ignored by people who are getting on with their lives,” Varney says. “I mean, don’t you find this ridiculous?”

The articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump will likely include charges of bribery, self-dealing, abuse of power, and obstruction – Fox News calls this “boring.”

‘Rage-Based Model’: Award Winning Investigative Reporter Blows Lid Off Fox News-Trump-White House Partnership

Published

on

Reporter Jane Mayer came out Monday with a bombshell article probing the symbiotic relationship between President Donald Trump and Fox News — and she said their shared business model is undermining U.S. democracy.

The New Yorker investigative journalist appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss the article, and she said her reporting found the relationship between the president and his favorite channel was even closer than it appeared.

“What Fox does is it makes money by enraging Americans, that’s how they keep them glued to the television set,” Mayer said. “It’s very much the same model that Trump has to keep his base engaged. So you’ve got a rage-based model for both of them, and what it’s doing is it’s spinning the country in an increasingly inflamed direction, and so it has a huge effect on our national politics.”

Mayer said the president and Fox News worked together to amplify their messages.

“It carries his message and it also gives him a message a lot of the time,” she said. “Trump picks up on what he sees on Fox, and I’ve got quotes from people who are very close in to the White House, people who worked in the White House, in and out of Fox, saying what you’ve got is a dysfunctional White House all of the time with no normal decision-making process, where a lot of the policy-making is the president picking up what’s on Fox.”

“Then I describe how Fox puts on what it does on the news, which is shocking in many ways,” Mayer added. “I mean, taking stuff straight off of the most crackpot blogs. Don’t take it me, take it from the people who are quoted from Fox saying so.”
