Fox News Glitch Turns Trump's Press Secretary Green, and Everyone's Making the Same Joke

Fox News

It's been 11 and a half months since the last White House press briefing, which used to be a daily occurrence.

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham hasn't given a single daily press briefing since assuming her post in March of last year, yet she's appeared on Fox News to lie for President Donald Trump numerous times.

Tuesday was one of those times.


Grisham appeared on Fox and Friends to discuss the author of the infamous anonymous op-edI Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administrationwhose identity remains a hot topic.

But an on-air video glitch ended up stealing the focus.

Watch below.

The glitch ended up turning Grisham a shade of green.

Soon, everyone was making the inevitable comparison.





Others have been more concerned with Grisham's many shortcomings as Press Secretary.





In the past, Grisham has justified her unwillingness to do her job by citing the number of times she appears on Fox News and how often the President speaks with reporters.

Okay, Stephanie.

But though the campaign trail is no longer in full swing, voters across the country can't help but see this crisis as a test of competence for President Donald Trump and a test of leadership for former Vice President and likely Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

A recent in-depth report from the Washington Post detailed the 70 day period between President Donald Trump's first knowledge of the virus and his eventual acknowledgment that the pandemic—which has killed over 10,000 people in the United States—poses a serious threat.

Trump's constant dismissal of the virus wasn't for lack of experts and longtime lawmakers warning him of the possibilities, as Washington Post opinion writer Greg Sargent points out.

Author and military historian Max Boot is a self-identified conservative, but he's by no means a supporter of President Donald Trump. Boot endorsed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election and he's frequently referred to Trump as the worst President in modern times.

But in a blistering new op-ed for the Washington Post, Boot removes the "in modern times" qualifier, referring to Trump as simply the worst President in U.S. history, citing his delayed and inadequate response to the virus that's brought the United States to a standstill.

In the face of a pandemic that's led to thousands of deaths in the United States, President Donald Trump's daily press briefings regarding the virus have often resulted in fewer answers and greater uncertainty, with the President unable or unwilling to provide accurate information to the American people.

As a result, media outlets have found themselves scrambling to fact check the President and some of his associates in real time. One local NPR station stopped broadcasting the briefings all together, instead compiling the statements from medical experts on the White House virus task force, such as Nation Institute of Allergies and Infectious Diseases director Dr. Anthony Fauci.

As the pandemic that's caused a national health crisis continues to worsen, President Donald Trump has been unyielding as ever in his eagerness to spread misinformation. It's made for some tense moments between the President and reporters.

One of the President's most damaging lines of misinformation has been his endorsement of hydroxychloroquine, a drug typically used for malaria, lupus, and rheumatoid arthritis. Trump has touted the drug—which hasn't undergone trials to treat the virus—as a possible cure.
