Last week, after Representative Jason Chaffetz got into hot water for saying that poor people need to choose health care instead of iPhones, Dan Hopper posted the following screenshots on Twitter, saying, “Forget iPhones, this is the level of animosity Fox News has towards poor people”.

That comes from a 2011 episode of The O'Reilly Factor, in which they start out making the point that the living conditions of the poor in the U.S. has gotten better in the last however many years … But it quickly devolves into “Can you believe these fucking people? Calling themselves ‘poor’ like that, when they own these things?”

I was outraged. I couldn’t believe that I lived in a country where the impoverished could shamelessly flaunt those luxuries right in my face while I heroically sacrificed my tax dollars to support their laziness. I had to see this for myself, so I got in my car and drove an hour to my mother’s house to see if Fox News’ claims were real.

Donald Trump’s team literally cannot find the light switches to the cabinet room in which they conduct their meetings, and have to speak in the dark and feel their way out of the room, according to a report that sheds interesting detail on life inside the White House.

Aside from difficulties with the electronics, Trump is apparently missing the validation from his cheering supporters on the campaign trail and has become disappointed with a tide of bad publicity following the implementation of his Muslim travel ban.

Trump’s consumption of TV news – in his dressing gown or over dinner - also emerged as one of his key traits.

He also routinely goes through new clips about himself with his Press Secretary, Sean Spicer, outlining in marker pen stories he doesn’t like. (source)

Additionally, based on Trump’s tweets, tv advertisers, network executives, and others (presumably foreign nationals) have been able to determine which shows he routinely watches. MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” and Fox’s “The O'Reilly Factor” are reportedly Trump’s favorite “news” sources. (source)

Why is it that if you take advantage of a tax break and you’re a corporation, you’re a smart business man. But if you take advantage of something you need to not be hungry, you’re a moocher!

(via Left and right clash when Bill O'Reilly mentions ‘white establishment’)

Twitter descended into a meltdown after Fox News’ commentator Bill O'Reilly lashed out at an alleged “liberal conspiracy” from the left to take power away from the “white establishment”.

“This is all about race. The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with. Therefore white working class voters must be marginalised,” he argued on the O'Reilly Factor.

So, it’s finally been said aloud. Welcome to trump’s amerikkka.
