Doocy Lies to Defend Trump’s McCain Attack

Steve Doocy, the dumbest man allowed on television, lied to defend Donald Trump, claiming on Fox and Friends, saying, “If you listen to his comments in total, he’s not critical of John McCain the war hero, he’s critical of his Senate record.” Right. That’s why he said this:

“He’s not a war hero. He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren’t captured.”

Trump later tried to change the subject to McCain’s Senate record, but that’s a distraction. And Doocy is lying for him to help with that distraction.

    Guess who’s hurting from Trump’s antics — poor little Rand Paul:

    And the real hell of it is, Trump is the kind of Republican Rand Paul was supposed to appeal to most. Talk about losing control of the monster you did so much to create and nurture…

    Surely Doocy got a memo to chill out on Trump, because Fox has to understand that the longer he’s in the limelight, the worse it is for Republicans. Right? RIGHT?!

    I don’t get Fox News (Thank Zeus!) where I live, so I’m not familiar with the usual cast of characters, but these video clips I see on FTB have me wondering… Is there any woman on Fox News who is not blonde and leggy?

    @Synfandel,

    I don’t watch it myself but there was a meme floating around on FaceBook that had heashots of all of the Fox anchors. The women were all blond and looked like they might be the leggy type. Feeding the fantasies of over 60 males, probably.

    Doocy is right. Trump isn’t critical of McCain the war hero. He’s critical of McCain the Senator and McCain the guy who got shot down and taken prisoner. Totally different.

    @3,. Synfandel : Sarah Palin maybe? (Didn’t / doesn’t she have her on show / major role with Fox?)

    Quite a few, actually. Fox has a Web site listing all their on-air personalities. Some entries lack a head shot, but the “news” anchors and show hosts all have them.

    A notable example is Carol Alt, who does a weekly health show on the network. She has a long career in movies such as Snakehead Terror (an underrated movie IMO.) On the other hand, playing characters like “Queen Fallopia” (in Homo Erectus) does not exactly suggest an A-list actress.

    Then there are Julie Banderas (rotating anchor for “Fox Report”), Kimberly Guilfoyle (co-host of “The Five”), Maria Molina (a meteorologist), Andrea Tantaros (co-host of “Outnumbered”)…

    And there is a black (but comely*) woman who appears in a group discussion show, but I couldn’t find her name.

    * Steven Whitfield, in The Making of Star Trek, relates the story of how a crew member, setting up to film an episode of the original series, pointed out a problem with Nichelle Nichols. “No, she’s black, he said, “she’s BLACK!” — meaning not well illuminated by the stage lighting. Realizing his gaffe, the man turned to Nichols and stammered, “Uh, Nichelle, I, uh…” She coolly replied, “But comely.”

    I believe the woman I was thinking of is Arthel Neville, co-host for “America’s News HQ” on Saturdays.

    There’s also this.

    an essay on the subject of making female news personalities “decorative” by Marty Davis (November 2012.)

    “The old wisdom of femininity not getting in the way of the news has been thrown out,” Grabe said. “I think the news consultancy business is driving the changes. . . . With cable news networks taking off, it’s all about eyeballs and getting an audience.”

    Just like Fox to perpetuate, and even exult, in its reification of the dumb blond meme. Of course, most, if not all, of them are very smart people, but they hitched their careers to the shit wagon, and have been dragged down to Fox’s below the gutter stupidity. I truly don’t understand RWNJ women. How do they live with themselves?
