‘Twenty years at Faux News must suck out truth’: Internet can’t deal with condescending State Dept. speaker
Wednesday’s State Department press briefing introduced Americans to a new regular cast member — former Fox & Friends host Heather Nauert. Naturally, Twitter had something to say about that.
“Wow, the State Department doesn’t have a credible spokesperson either,” one user noted. “Twenty years at Faux News must suck out truth and integrity.”
