“You’d think so, but actually Fox News is bailing on Trump too,” Black explained. After being the first to call Arizona for Joe Biden, he added, “More and more, they’re calling bullshit on Trump’s bullshit.”
After showing recent examples of at least some Fox hosts breaking with Trump’s delusions, Black said that while Fox isn’t necessarily “pro-Biden,” they’re “definitely Biden-curious.” He joked that he’d be “worried” if he were that network because “if there’s one thing Trump actually has experience in, it’s dumping blondes.”
Asked by Noah what Trump supporters will do now without Fox News on their side, Black predicted they would “take some time to process the loss, maybe disconnect from the media for a while, curl up with a good novel and consider that maybe they’d be happier not living in a constant state of seething rage and grievance.” Of course, he wasn’t being serious. Instead, they’re finding “somewhere else to guzzle their cocktail of made-up bullshit.”
“Right-wing fanatics haven’t fled like this since they were buying tickets to Argentina at the end of World War II,” Black added, breaking down how smaller outlets like Newsmax and OAN are “offering them a new place to call home.”
On those networks, Joe Biden isn’t president-elect and dead people are voting at higher levels than ever before. “God it’s amazing how exciting the news can be when you just make it up!” Black exclaimed.
The segment ended with Black presenting his own Fox-competitor called “Lewsmax,” complete with “bargain-basement graphics, no editorial standards and a tenuous grip on reality.”
