If you knew my mother, you’d be stunned that she watched Fox News.
My mother HATED Donald Trump. She thought of Trump the same way she thought of Rex Ryan, the old coach of the Buffalo Bills. She thought they were arrogant blowhards. But she watched Fox News.
Contrary to what the media thinks, Democrats don’t watch CNN or MSNBC. Lunatics do. The viewership of these two channels is near zilch. In fact, if you look at the areas that Trump won in states that he lost, he made VERY clear inroads into areas that Obama won.
My 82 year old Democrat mother watched Fox News because CNN and MSNBC suck.
To put it in her words, “they’re nothing but a bunch of assholes.” (Mom didn’t mince words)
They’re part of a leftist trend I like to refer to as mock TV. They go way back, starting with the old black-face comedians of vaudeville, to assholes like Don Rickles, and more recently to Jon Stewart, Jimmy Kimmel, the current boneheads at SNL, Steven Cobert, Rachael Maddow, Fareed Zacharia and probably a dozen more.
These people are not comedians or journalists. They’re just assholes, which is why my mother watched Fox News.
They’re not funny. Although I do admit to laughing at some Jon Stewart skits, I can’t remember even cracking a smile at the rest of them, and believe me, I can laugh at ANYTHING. I just don’t find old, regurgitated black-face jokes funny, and neither did my mother.
My mother, on the other hand, was fiercely pro-American, insanely Democratic and totally hated racism and sexism of any kind. My father’s best friend was black, and our family thought of him as a relative. When my oldest daughter told her she was going to Wellesley College, my mother acted like she landed on the moon! The same college as Hillary Clinton!!!!!
When she visited Wellesley and Mount Holyoke, where my youngest went, she was in leftist liberal nirvana. She literally beamed. She sat with a smile pasted across her face listening to Valery Jarret give Sarah’s coomencement speech as if it was the second coming of Jesus. Vespers ar Mount Holyoke was like she met Frank Sinatra.
Yet my 82-year-old Democrat mother watched Fox News.
The Democrats, as well as their minion cable channels have painted themselves into a corner. This is what they don’t get. If you look at a KKK sign from the 40’s, what do they say?
AND NO CATHOLICS
The Democrats retained the Catholic vote for decades in the US because the Republicans hated Catholics. My best friend growing up told me I was going to hell because I was a Catholic. But those days are long gone. The Democrats are losing the Catholic vote and trying to make up for it with immigrants. The problem is, those immigrants ARE MOSTLY CATHOLIC!
This is why my 82-year-old mother watched Fox News.
She was a true Democrat to her dying day and for good reason. The unions gave my father a job and fought for him. They retired on a union retirement plan. But she couldn’t watch CNN or MSNBC.
They were assholes and my mother didn’t like assholes.
