Given the opportunity to comment on the flood of misinformation and downright lies being spewed by President Donald Trump’s defenders on television, an “AM Joy” regular took a shot at the Fox News personalities for filling the airwaves with “BS,” while calling wealthy Trump admirers at Mar-a-Lago “ignorant.”
Speaking with host Joy Reid, “The Beat DC” host Tiffany Cross unloaded on the flood of garbage reporting that conservative viewers are gobbling up.
“It makes my head explode when I see these clips from Fox News,” Cross began. “It is so dangerous, what they are doing and what they are saying. For the people tuning into you right now, these are intelligent people. The people that are watching Fox News — this is their gospel, this is what they look at and what they consider a reputable outlet.”
“It is a scary thing when you look at what’s been happening and what [Trump] has said,” she continued. “The president has all but threatened the American people with his tweets saying he has bikers and the people guns on his side — and you have Fox News as being an echo chamber for this.”
“It is frustrating when I hear this echo chamber of ignorance coming from Fox News being celebrated by wealthy ignorant people at Mar-a-Lago,” she charged. “We need to bring back some intellect to the discourse.”
