Some days I can take in ten minutes of Fox News, but on most days one to five minutes is all I can handle. I do FORCE myself to watch is (and so should you) to get an inside view of the mind of a Trump supporter. It’s a weird and scary place, but it will tell you what we’re up against.
Here’s a few things I noticed:
- According their economic experts, high tax rates are hurting the competitive nature of American businesses so by cutting tax rates, these same businesses will flood investment into American expansion and that will lead to higher wages. There is no mention that while the official tax rate is high, the effective tax rate is actually lower than most developed nations nor is there any explanation how lower tax rates will make them more competitive but the promised higher labor costs (increased wages) will cancel out that advantage.
- During a news Tsunami regarding a torrent of news regarding an unending stream of evidence pointing to Trump and Russian collusion, Tucker Carlson, instead, focused his attention to an outbreak of monkey pox in Africa that has no known cure and could possibly spread to the USA. Yup, pay no attention to the Russians….we’ve got monkey pox to worry about.
- In their attack of the woman who charged Moore with improper sexual behavior, Fox cited her numerous divorces and bankruptcies at evidence that she is not of sound moral character….unlike Trump……..
It’s truly painful to watch, but I consider it my duty.
