The anti-Trump bias at Fox News strikes again!
During an interview on “The Story,” Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum kicked things off by claiming that it’s a “pervasive belief” among Republicans that Joe Biden didn’t win the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Then, in an equally condescending tone, network contributor Geraldo Rivera declared that Trump supporters who believe there was widespread voter fraud in the election are listening to “propaganda.”
MacCallum said, “The Atlanta Journal-Constitution did a piece where the reporter said not one person on the Republican side believes Joe Biden won this race. That is a pervasive belief out there. What do you say to all that.”
Rivera said, “It’s a belief, Martha, based on propaganda. We’ve heard nothing but whining and complaining. What about the courts? Don’t we have courts for a reason in this country? Every court that reviewed this matter decided against the Republicans, against President Trump. The high court of the United States, including three Trump-appointed Associate Justices, have ruled against or declined to take these cases. At what point do we say okay, basta, enough. It’s pathetic this has been dragged so long.”
Rivera, once a steadfast ally of Trump, has been going after the president a lot lately
Last month, Rivera took to Twitter to declare that he’s fed up with Trump’s unwillingness to accept the results of the Nov. 3 election.
Rivera admitted that he defended Trump for four years from what he called “leftist creeps” but added that the president has behaved “like an entitled frat boy” since the election.
He also attacked Sidney Powell, whom he called a “pathetic lawyer” who was only wrecking Trump’s legacy with failed lawsuits.
Prior to that, Rivera called on Trump and his supporters to stop attacking the presidential election as fraudulent and accept defeat.
During a tense interview on Fox News, Geraldo spoke about Trump’s election lawsuits after the Electoral College officially voted for Biden as president-elect.
Rivera criticized Biden’s speech before saying, “However, he’s absolutely right: It is over. I want my friend, the current president, the 45th president to understand it is over. The Electoral College has voted. The longer we drag this out, the more we damage the fabric of our democracy … and it also damages the legacy of Donald Trump, who should be taking a victory lap right now celebrating the vaccine that he almost single-handedly forced the scientific community to get ready to save millions of lives.”
