Fox News employee has embarrassing Twitter meltdown after being accused of sounding like a white supremacist

Published

on

Fox News assignment reporter Doug McKelway melted down on Twitter at a journalist who revealed that one of his own colleagues at Fox last week accused him of sounding like a white nationalist.

The Daily Beast’s Andrew Kirell, who has a side career as a musician, revealed on Monday that McKelway was responding to an article he wrote about him last week by attacking his harmonica playing.

“Andrew, Andrew, Andrew. Really?” he wrote in one tweet. “You’re proud of this? Tell you what. I’ll give you a free guitar lesson if you report that Joe Biden voted to re-instate Robert E. Lee’s citizenship. I’ll even throw in a free harmonica lesson. I don’t play, but from available evidence, neither do you.”

McKelway then accused Kirell of being a “sheer mediocrity” as a musician and said he was “endemic to the ‘everybody gets a trophy generation.'”

“This dude just plain sucks,” the Fox News reporter added.

Kirell last week obtained leaked emails showing that McKelway tried to defend President Donald Trump’s declaration that there were “very fine people” who attended a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

Fox News Radio White House correspondent Jon Decker jumped into the conversation and told McKelway that he was offended by his attempt to defend the president’s remarks.

“Based upon the slew of emails that I’ve received today, both of you should send an apology to your Fox News colleagues — many of whom are hurt and infuriated by your respective posts,” Decker said. “Your posts read like something you’d read on a White Supremacist chat room.”

He made the comments as part of an interview with his own nephew Sam Etsy Rayner, for Moz’s website.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
