It probably won’t surprise anyone to learn that Fox News has an earth-shaking conspiracy theory about the timing of Joe Biden’s announcement yesterday that he won’t be running for president in the 2016 election.
You or I may have watched Biden speak in the Rose Garden and taken it at face value that he did what he thought was best for himself, his family, and the Democratic Party by staying out of the race. You or I may have assumed he meant what he said simply because we’re (mostly) sane individuals.
Andrea Tantaros, however, isn’t having any of that shit:
“But when you look at the two scandals that we’re facing, that all eyes are going to be on tomorrow, Benghazi, and the email scandal — these are administration-wide scandals. All three of them, President Obama, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton were there that night, this is their scandal as well. This email scandal is their email scandal as well. There is no way, there is no chance, that Joe Biden, and President Obama, and their national security team did not know that she was using a private server, breaking the law. There is no way, this is why this is an administration-wide scandal that they are covering up, they are all in on this, and they are circling the wagons, I cannot stress this enough. This goes all the way to the west wing, both Benghazi, and both the email scandal, and you’re watching it play out exactly today. The timing is not a coincidence!”
Fox News must use Benghazi as some kind of party game, like Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon. “I can connect Alan Cumming in Son of the Mask to Benghazi in just three moves!”
Andrea Tantaros really is the best running gag at Fox News right now. She doesn’t have the practiced finesse of Bill O’Reilly or Megyn Kelly so she comes off as more of a mean troll whenever she uses the couch on Outnumbered as her personal soapbox, which she does with astonishing regularity.
This makes sense given that she seems to be jockeying for a promotion so hard that she may as well move out of her apartment and take up residence in Roger Ailes’s asshole. I doubt the old pervert would mind.
