Watch Fox News Hosts Agonize While Reporting The GOP ‘Clown Show’
Hosts at the conservative Fox News have a reputation for spinning news stories in favor of the Republican Party. This time, however, they have been unable to put a rosy gloss on the GOP’s failure to nominate a Speaker of the House of Representatives for two consecutive days and have descended into “meltdown mode” as the infighting keeps getting worse.
To illustrate their frustration, MSNBC’s Ari Melber on Wednesday played a supercut of Fox News coverage of the “disastrous” House GOP’s failed Speaker votes.
“House Republicans now are on the verge of becoming a total clown show,” said host Sean Hannity.
“Disaster for the Republicans,” declared “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy. “Just a simple disaster!”
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich complained that “these twenty people are making Republicans look like idiots.”
“What the heck is wrong with these people?” wondered right-wing host Jeanine Pirro.
Despite their apparent frustration, Melber said he was struck by how Fox News hosts made almost no effort to spin the leadership fight as good news.
