ISBL Asshat of the Week: Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream

Yesterday, after ____ falsely implied that players of the Philadelphia Eagles protested during the national anthem by taking a knee, Fox News aired a segment that furthered the lie.

It all began after _____ uninvited the team, who weren’t coming anyway, to the White House, and then Tweeted this:
“Staying in the Locker Room for the playing of our National Anthem is as disrespectful to our country as kneeling.”
And that’s when the Lie Machina at Fox News went into overdrive, and when Fox News at Night with Shannon Bream aired a story showing the Eagles kneeling, except …

It was a pregame prayer, and not a protest of social injustice to Black Americans, as we learned in the nanosecond that it took Philadelphia tight end Zach Ertz to explain that to the “news” outlet:
“This can’t be serious ... Praying before games with my teammates, well before the anthem, is being used for your propaganda?! Just sad, I feel like you guys should have to be better than this...”
Sadly, they aren’t better than that.

In fact, it has been proven that no player on the Eagles took a knee during the national anthem during the entirte2017 regular season, post season or Super Bowl.

But, hey, what’s a lie when you’re trying to push a hate-filled nationalistic agenda by the Racist-in-Chief?

You know, I've never seen a single program on Fox News. From the sound of things, I haven't missed much. I know some reasonably intelligent people who seem to have gone brain dead from feeding on this toxic dreck. The asshattery runs deep in a whole lot of people.

It should have been obvious from the picture.
Two fellows kneeling and others jogging, assistants
handing stuff around, referee looking at something.
Sheesh.

Facts don't matter in the slightest to Trump and his apologists.

They know none of their viewers will ever fact-check them so they say whatever they want.

I hope they were praying for God to please do something about Fox and the Orange Idiot in Chief. Make it all go away. End the madness.

Is there an award for a chronic asshat? Why waste money on a weekly hat!
