For eight years Fox news and Republicans pummeled President Obama and his administration with misrepresentations, false facts, and outright lies. From his birthright and tan suits to Benghazi, the assault was staggering and unfair, with Mitch McConnell stating on the first day of Obama’s Presidency, his objective was to see ‘a one term Presidency’.
Suddenly, the shoe is on the other foot, Fox news is reeling in the ratings, and Conservatives are crying fake news at every opportunity. At face value, one could comprehend the cries of fake news, understand Trumps unending obsession because Conservatives understand the value of a lie. That’s what Fox taught. A lie ain’t all that bad if it supports you emotionally.
The thing is, the truth hurts. Call it fake news if you want, but the difference is, there’s a kernel of truth to what’s being said today. Not made up shit! Not outright lies, rather facts with a basis in truth. So if you have a problem with how our ‘liberal’ news media is portraying Trump, look in the mirror.
