To make a point that Fox News often spouts the same hyperbole as white supremacist Nick Fuentes, the folks at The Daily Show created a montage of hideous statements by Fuentes followed by similar language on Fox News.

Remember when COVID-19 was declared a “Democratic hoax” by Donald Trump?
Remember when all of Fox News fell over itself to announce we had practically “nothing to fear” from the virus?
Pete Hegseth on Fox & Friends: “The more I learn about coronavirus, the less concerned I am.”
Man, how I’d love to hear what they think about their dumb AF comments today. But, come to think of it, they probably still believe them.
From The Daily Show with Trevor Noah:
Hannity. Rush. Dobbs. Ingraham. Pirro. Nunes. Tammy. Geraldo. Doocy. Hegseth. Schlapp. Siegel. Watters. Dr. Drew. Henry. Ainsley. Gaetz. Inhofe. Pence. Kudlow. Conway. Trump.

The Daily Show found video footage of Donald Trump telling graduates back in 2004 to ‘never give up,’ even if there’s a ‘concrete wall in front of you.’
“Never, ever give up. Don’t give up. Don’t allow it to happen. If there’s a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it. But get to the other side of that wall.”

Wow, that was fast.
Take a look at this compilation by The Daily Show of former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicers “greatest hits” following his resignation today.
The clips include his assertions that Trump’s inauguration had the largest number of viewers, and that Hitler never used chemical weapons.

The Daily Show thought North Carolina might understand the impact of the state’s anti-LGBT law, HB2, through the use of some interactive learning.
The Raleigh News & Observer recaps:
Comedy Central’s The Daily Show came to Raleigh recently to poke fun at House Bill 2 by operating a food truck that refused to serve gay people. The show parked a fake barbecue business called Bone Bros. Flamin’ BBQ outside Trophy Brewing on Maywood Avenue and the Ruby Deluxe bar on Salisbury Street earlier this month.
“I wanted to show North Carolinians what HB2 would look like in action, so I rented a food truck … and set out to refuse service to people by telling them they’re gay,” Daily Show correspondent Roy Wood Jr. says at the beginning of the segment, which aired Thursday. “HB2 says I can do this Jim Crow-level (expletive), and nobody can stop me.”
For the record, HB2 doesn’t explicitly state that businesses can refuse service to LGBT people. But it did repeal local nondiscrimination ordinances that included LGBT protections and replaced them with a statewide nondiscrimination law.
That law bans “places of public accommodation” such as restaurants, stores and hotels from discriminating on the basis of “race, religion, color, national origin, or biological sex.” But it leaves two categories unprotected: Sexual orientation and gender identity.
Making his last appearance on The Daily Show, President Obama joked with Jon Stewart, “I can’t believe you’re leaving before me. I’m going to issue an executive order: Jon Stewart cannot leave the show. It’s being challenged in the courts.”
The two then moved on to talk on several topics including the nuclear proposal with Iran, Donald Trump and more. Obama indicated he still plans to address fuel-energy standards and climate change in his remaining time in office.
