Fox News calls Biden a “wannabe dictator” — the White House responds with sarcasm

“But the indictment – it has everything.”

Indictments against a former US president in a very short time, two historic court appearances – this has never happened before. Donald Trump has always been a reliable source for the public viewer. US expert Julius Van de Laer says whether things can really get serious for Trump this time around.

Former US President Donald Trump appeared in court in Miami on Tuesday. Then, Fox News featured the speeches of Trump and incumbent Joe Biden — calling the latter in the bottom third a “wannabe dictator.” The White House commented with advice against the broadcaster.

DrThe White House responded with humor to coverage on Fox News that called US President Joe Biden a “wannabe dictator” over the impeachment of his predecessor, Donald Trump. “There are probably about 787 million things I can say about that,” Biden’s spokeswoman, Karen Jean-Pierre, told reporters on Wednesday. But she didn’t want to go into the matter any further.

The number was apparently a reference to the amount Fox News would have to pay voting machine manufacturer Dominion over defamation allegations. The channel agreed to pay $787.5 million in April following false allegations of voter fraud against Dominion related to the 2020 presidential election in order to avoid a last-minute defamation lawsuit. Dominion sued Fox News for $1.6 billion in damages.

Fox News sparked an outcry Tuesday night after Trump, who is accused in the documents case, pleaded not guilty to all charges in federal court in Miami. During a live broadcast of Biden and Trump’s speeches, the announcer faded into the words “would-be dictator speaks at the White House after his political rival is arrested.”

Trump, who wants to run again in the 2024 presidential election, accuses the Biden administration of wanting to neutralize him politically through an indictment from the federal judiciary. Fox News appears to agree with this interpretation with the overlay. “That was a mistake,” Biden’s spokeswoman said Wednesday.

The mockery of Fox News

The Fox News overlay caused many critical comments on online platforms. Twitter users called the phrase “ridiculous”, “amazing” and evidence that Fox News is a “Republican propaganda machine”. One user suggested that Biden sue the broadcaster. “The bandage was removed from the abdominal area and treated immediately,” Fox News told Agence France-Presse.

Fox News has been speaking very positively about Trump for a long time. The broadcaster, which belongs to controversial billionaire Rupert Murdoch’s media empire, has partly distanced itself from right-wing populists in recent years. However, given Trump’s huge popularity among right-wing viewers, Fox News is taking a rocky course on the matter.
