The conservative Fox News network has repeatedly propped up former President Donald Trump. When then-President Trump made the delusional claim in March 2020 that pandemic-induced business closures would end by Easter, Fox host Bill Hemmer likened it to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. When Trump made an appearance at the Daytona 500 that same year, Fox host Dan Bongino praised his display of so-called "American muscle."
Trump himself suggested in 2017 that the flattering coverage of him on Fox and Friends played a crucial role in his ascent to the White House. He also praised Fox anchors by name when gloating about the findings of the Mueller Report.
So it was no surprise when far-right Fox News host Laura Ingraham began listing Trump's so-called achievements on her primetime slot.
What did come as a surprise, however, were the accompanying graphics.
"That's when we had energy independence, that's when we had low inflation, rising wages even for blue collar workers. We also had record low unemployment."
The blurbs listed on the graphics didn't match up with Ingraham's talking points, and the last two came up blank before being pulled from the screen before the conclusion of Ingraham's monologue.
To some, blank graphics listing Trump's supposed victories were more truthful than the graphics producers scripted.
Some said the slip was downright Freudian.
