On Thursday night, Fox News late-night host Greg Gutfeld began with mostly negative reactions to Biden’s press conferfence on CNN and MSNBC, and then drew a contrast with NBC reporter Yamiche Alcindor for her “kiss-ass tweet” praising Biden as so much better than Trump.
Alcindor bizarrely claimed Biden didn’t “lash out” at reporters, which Gutfeld demonstrated was false. Biden still thinks saying someone is “on the side” of segregationists doesn’t imply they’re segregationists.
Pants on Fire! While CNN & MSNBC offered criticism of the bad Biden press conference, Greg Gutfeld mocks @Yamiche for loving it and bizarrely claiming Biden didn’t “lash out” at reporters, shows president yelling at @PhilipWegmann. pic.twitter.com/mFDnNjRkss

GUTFELD: Of course there are still holdouts, like those Japanese pilots from World War II stuck on some island cut off from reality, and like their planes, this president is a Zero. Yamiche Alcindor had a kiss-ass tweet championing Joe for not lashing out at reporters. I guess she was distracted by Peter Doocy’s hair when this happened.
BIDEN to Philip Wegmann: I didn’t say that. Look what I said. Go back and read what I said! And tell me if you think I called anyone who voted on the side of the position taken by Bull Connor that they were Bull Connor. And that is — interesting reading in English. Yeah, I assume you got into journalism because you like to write.
GUTFELD: Mmm, that had to be the creepiest thing Joe has done in the last 48 hours and this is a man that sniffs children’s hair the way his son snorts parmesan cheese. Yamiche also praised Joe for making news, which he did. He lasted 90 minutes, and he didn’t lose consciousness once. But he also green-lit a Russian invasion so maybe making news shouldn’t be the priority? Alec Baldwin’s been making news, too, but it’s not good news. But hey, he gave it a shot.
Gutfeld also mocked the president for asking what the Republicans are for.
GUTFELD: Normal people will tell you what they’re for, and it’s not four more years of weakness, fear, and reckless spending. We want the crime wave to end. We want real borders. We want our shelves restocked. We want law and order restored. We want to get back to life. We want the opposite of anywhere Democrats are in charge, or at least stock the shelves with pepper spray so we can fight back.
So why not focus on the primary concerns and not this [bleep] voting bill that you masquerade as a rights bill? People see through that like cellophane over a fruit basket.
PS: Speaking of ridiculous denials, David Rutz at Fox News underlined that PolitiFact attempted to put Biden’s yelling “in context,” claiming this Bull Connor stuff wasn’t an insult (or a lie).
“We went back to read what he said,” PolitiFact’s Jeff Cercone wrote, after Biden angrily told a reporter to do just that while being asked about his comments this week. “While Biden didn’t explicitly accuse those who don’t support the voting bill of being racists, he did say that their vote would be remembered unfavorably in history, much like the actions of those past figures who didn’t support civil rights or an end to slavery.”
PS: PolitiFact did scream “Pants On Fire” when a Republican billboard in Tampa suggested Rep. Kathy Castor was a communist. Maybe it should have said she was historically “on the side of” communists.
