"Where's all this insane hatred coming from?" Please come CAPTION Pete Hegseth of Fox & Friends!!!

Pete Hegseth is saying: "After the horrific machete attack in New York State last night we have to ask ourselves where this Antisemitism is coming from? . . . Just because George Soros and his minions have been trying to enslave the world for decades, it doesn't give anyone the right to terrorize the Jewish community."


Above CAPTION based on Hegseth's histrionic outrage 12.29.19 when discussing the previous night's Antisemitic attack.

Ever wonder if you're on the right side? Come CAPTION John Solomon (Ukraine conspiracy theorist)!

John ("If you only knew" ) Solomon is saying: "Not only did the Clintons have a multi-million dollar tie to the Australian diplomat whose tip lead to the Russian probe, they eliminated Joseph Misfud, the source of that tip, using Obama's Secret Service to do the dirty work. . . . I never would have believed it if Alex Jones didn't tell me so himself."


Solomon's misinformation is legendary. In 2019 he was awarded Misinformer of the Year by Media Matters:


He was the source of the theories Trump bought into (and still buys into) that lead to his impeachment.

"Moscow's a bit chilly for me this time of year. Otherwise . . ." Come CAPTION Mitch McConnell!!!

Mitch (The itch you can't scratch) McConnell is saying: "You're not going to have to worry about the trial getting out of hand. . . . In fact, you're not going to have to worry about having a trial."

Oh, holy night! . . . Please come CAPTION PresiDented Donald Trump!!!

Donald Trump: "At this time of year it's important to remember what Christmas is all about, but you'd never know it if you listened to the Dems. They hate Christmas and anyone who says 'Merry Christmas.' . . . That's all they can do is hate and tear down. . . . But Christmas is about love and togetherness and the birth of Jesus, even though the Dems want to destroy it and everything about it. . . . . They are simply evil with little hate-filled hearts. . . . Unlike the love I have for every American, even the human scum who don't deserve to be called Americans. (And I'm working on that.)"

"Mama, please come double my Depends. It's Christmas!" . . . Please come CAPTION Lou Dobbs!!!

Lou Dobbs is saying: "What our president has in front of him is not removal from office but century after century of veneration. Our grand-children's great, great grandchildren will be naming their children after him, maps will need to be reprinted to accommodate all the place names changed to Trump, Trump-TV will be broadcast on all channels, and today's Democrat congress and other critics will be nationally-known villains, derided by man and condemned by history, . . . Those are my predictions and I'm never wrong."


Above CAPTION based on this spud's recent broadcast as covered by Media Matters (with a clip):

Once around the goldfish bowl. . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Giuliani

Rudy Giuliani just finished saying "Haven't you heard? Senility is just a state of mind."
December 23, 2019

"The March Hare is my hero." . . . Please come CAPTION Howard Kurtz!!!

Howard (crooked and unbalanced) Kurtz is saying: "There you have it folks. As the panel unanimously realizes, the main-stream media's refusal to demand investigation into the Ukrainian interference in the 2016 presidential election, just because the story's sources are either crooked, discredited, or Russian, is indicative of their self-righteous bias, a bias they're too blind to even begin to see because they don't want to see anything that runs counter to their narrative."


Above CAPTION based on a Fox segment that pretty much came to that conclusion ("either crooked, discredited, or Russian" sources was my addition) and was covered by Crooks and Liars:

December 23, 2019

"Don't fear white supremacists, fear the Dems!" . . . Please come CAPTION Stephen Miller!!!

Stephen Miller is saying: “What Democrat Party doesn't want you to know, Ainsley, is that Donald Trump is the anti-racist president. He doesn't believe in races. Instead he fights for one America, irregardless of how people look or act, even if they act like sub-humans and say and do terrible things. This administration is prejudiced against no one. . . . Of course, we would prefer they knew how to act decently and wouldn't make such a point about being different all the time, but . . .”


Above CAPTION based on an interview this spud gave to Fox News as covered by Crooks and Liars:

America's Dog Catcher. . . . Please come CAPTION Rudy Giuliani!!! (My apology to dog catchers.)

Rudy Giuliani is saying: "I offered to go on Ukrainian television with my findings, but they're corrupt and wouldn't interview me, so naturally I went on Russian state television where I got literally millions of viewers and thousands of letters in support. . . . You just have to know the most reliable places to go to with this kind of information."


This CAPTION based on the appearance of Rudy on Russian state t.v. as covered by Crooks and Liars:


December 21, 2019

"A serial killer only kills people." . . . Please come CAPTION Mitch McConnell!!!

Mitch McConnell is saying: "Of course I know that history will be watching, that's why I want the Senate's trial of President Trump over quickly, without witnesses or evidence. I don't want to give them too much to see."

About skip fox

I am retired, now a professor emeritus at University of Louisiana at Lafayette, where I taught in the English department for 37 years. I've written 4 chapbooks and 5 full-sized books (all listed as poetry though many include other genres as well), including _Sheer Indefinite: Selected Poems, 1991-2012 (Univ. of New Orleans Press, 2012). I've also written a 500+ page bibliography of three contemporary poets: Robert Creeley, Ed Dorn, and Robert Duncan. I am writing now, both fiction and poetry, more now than ever. My first vote for President of the United States was for Dick Gregory in 1968 (Bowling Green, Ohio). Favorite quote: "It's easy to be an idealist if you don't have to mind the evidence, but no one said it was supposed to be easy" (Richard LaPauvre).
