Neil Cavuto called President Liesalot out on his endless lies — ON FOX NEWS — and I guess I am a Neil Cavuto fan now?

HOT DAMN, FOX NEWS’ NEIL CAVUTO! LOOK AT YOU!

On yesterday’s episode of Your World with Neil Cavuto, Cavuto, clearly rocked by Rudy Giuliani’s performance and President Dumbass’ tweet admission that he, in fact, did reimburse Michael Cohen for the Stormy Daniels payoff, had some things to say about the Liar-in-Chief. Namely that he’s a fucking hypocrite and liar before detailing SO MANY OF HIS LIES.

“Now, I’m not saying you’re a liar.”

OK, maybe he didn’t call him a liar in so many words. But that’s what he meant.

“You’re the president. You’re busy. I’m just having a devil of a time figuring out which news is fake. Let’s just say your own words on lots of stuff give me, shall I say, lots of pause.”

You have to watch this. IT IS SO DELICIOUS.

And one of Cavuto’s most salient points is that Trump screams FAKE NEWS!!!!!! at any story he doesn’t like, but then goes out there and spreads his own FAKE NEWS without ever issuing a correction. What Cavuto doesn’t note is that unlike Trump, when a news outlet makes an error, they publicly correct it (which, again, Trump never does). And then President Asshole over here turns around and uses that correction to attack the new outlet and sow distrust … even though by issuing the correction, the news outlet is taking the necessary steps to maintain trust.

Say, is there a recent example I can point to as an illustration? Why, yes! In fact, there is!

CORRECTION: NBC reported yesterday that Michael Cohen’s phones had been tapped before the FBI raid. Yeah, no, they were just keeping a log of phone calls, not recording the conversations.

And here is President Twatter delighting in this, because that’s what he do:

Meanwhile, John McCain has no time for FAKE NEWS:

McCain also likened Trump’s use of the term “fake news” to authoritarian governments. “His reaction to unflattering news stories, calling them ‘fake news’ whether they’re credible or not, is copied by autocrats who want to discredit and control a free press,” McCain writes.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders had a hard day yesterday. YOU KNOW, BECAUSE SHE’S A LYING LIAR WHO LIES.

I present to you 2018:

Tina Fey has some edits to her (hilarious) response to Charlottesville last year. I thought it was perfect, but she says that she understands now the criticisms by people who thought she was encouraging people to give up. She also gave Letterman grief for not hiring female writers because she’s badass. This is also your reminder that she’s hosting Saturday Night Live on May 19.

Oh, wait, are the Whisperers coming to The Walking Dead after all? Maybe! Anyway, here’s the cast on horses.

Looks like someone’s about to die on Grey’s Anatomy.

Reminder: Jeffrey Wright is a smart guy.

IMPORTANT.

IMPORTANT.

This is why this conversation is necessary: Priyanka Chopra says that Apu was “the bane of [her] life” growing up:

“I was always asked when I was in high school at 14, 15, why I didn’t speak like that,” she said. “Or are my parents doctors (which they are)? Did I find gold in my rivers? Did I go to school on elephants? I always had questions like that. So I think, yes, it is a time where, why try to erase stereotype? Yes, it is a cartoon. Yes, it’s a pop culturally super successful show. But that gives it more responsibility. It’s out of date on so many levels.”

And this is a good companion piece to Chopra’s words: television has the power to change people’s perceptions and attitudes.

Yeah, Christina Aguilera isn’t returning to The Voice.

And Tom Arnold will definitely not be on Roseanne.

And there will be no more Twin Peaks.

The Gracie Awards — an awards ceremony for women in media — will honor Rita Moreno with a lifetime achievement award.

Time’s Up

Yes, Jeffrey Tambor is going to be in Arrested Development season five. I have many conflicting thoughts about this: If the accusations against him are true, Tambor is not deserving of a redemption yet; but at the same time, I believe this season was either in the middle of — or had completed — filming when the allegations came out. It’s a tough position for the show to be in.

The Nobel Prize for Literature has just been up and canceled this year because of the Swedish Academy’s own #MeToo scandal. Apparently, French photographer Jean-Claude Arnault, who is married to an academy member, has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, and apparently, members of the academy who knew about the accusations did fuckall about it. A number of other members of the academy quit in protest, and now NO ONE GETS A PRIZE.

Oh Junot Díaz, goddammit.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING, NBC NEWS? Apparently, they scheduled an interview with the author of The New York Times cheerleading piece, only to cancel it and replace it with an interview with two Redskins cheerleaders who denied the story — without interviewing any of the women who alleged it or giving The New York Times an opportunity to respond. What the fuck is this? Is this about Sunday Night Football? Y’ALL ARE REALLY NOT IN A PLACE TO BE TAMPING DOWN SEXUAL HARASSMENT STORIES RIGHT NOW, ANDY LACK.

Bill Cosby and Roman Polanski have been booted from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. WELL, IT TOOK THEM LONG ENOUGH, JEEZ. Polanski plans to appeal.

But if you’re still a fan of The Cosby Show, apparently you can still watch it on Amazon Prime.

Harvey Weinstein has brought Alan Dershowitz onto his legal team. Yeah, that sounds accurate.

Thomas Ravenel from Southern Charm has been accused of sexual assault.

One thought on “Neil Cavuto called President Liesalot out on his endless lies — ON FOX NEWS — and I guess I am a Neil Cavuto fan now?

  1. I was watching the Washington cheerleaders on the Today Show this morning and it was a special kind of awful. Like they said more than once, “I don’t want to discredit what they are saying, but they are lying”. Wha…what? Savannah Guthrie made it sound like the Skins sent them as PR control. But if that’s the case – they failed spectacularly. It was just gross./ That they chose to air that over the author of the story is gross too. It’s all just so gross.
