Fox News producer out after onscreen message calling Biden 'wannabe dictator'

NEW YORK — A longtime producer for Tucker Carlson is out at Fox News after he was deemed responsible for the on-air headline that referred to President Joe Biden as a “wannabe dictator” because of the indictment of former President Donald Trump.


The producer, Alex McCaskill, confirmed his exit in an Instagram post. Fox News did not comment on Friday.


He had remained at Fox after Carlson, the network’s most popular personality, was fired on April 24. The reason for Carlson’s sudden ouster, less than a week after Fox agreed to pay Dominion Voting Systems $787 million to end a defamation case, has never been publicly explained.

It was during the last minutes of Carlson’s former time slot on Tuesday when the message appeared under separate onscreen boxes that showed Biden and Trump talking. It read: “Wannabe dictator speaks at the White House after having his political rival arrested.”

Carlson, in a Twitter monologue posted Thursday, said “the women who run the network panicked” about the post and scolded the person responsible. Carlson didn’t name the producer, but said he was “considered one of the most capable persons in the building.”


The producer offered to resign with two weeks’ notice, but was told to clean out his desk and leave immediately, he said.

Fox, in a statement on Wednesday, said the chyron had been taken down and the issue “addressed,” without further explanation.

In an Instagram message posted on Twitter by Justin Baragona of The Daily Beast, McCaskill is pictured outside of Fox’s Manhattan office holding a box.

“Today was my last day at Fox,” read the message under his picture. “It’s been a wild 10 years and it was the best place I’ve ever worked because of the great people I met. But the time has come. I asked them to let me go, and they finally did. To all my friends there: I will miss you forever.”

A call and text message to a phone listed as McCaskill’s was not immediately returned.


Plenty of Biden critics have suggested politics was behind Trump’s indictment by special prosecutor Jack Smith on charges of hoarding classified documents and resisting government attempts to retrieve them. Biden has not commented on the case.

McCaskill was named this spring in a lawsuit filed by a former Fox producer, Abby Grossberg, who also worked on Carlson’s staff. Her lawsuit said McCaskill “habitually belittled female employees” at Fox. He said that a room at Fox set aside for employees to pump breast milk was a “waste of space” and should be replaced with a room for men to tan their testicles, according to the lawsuit.

Fox has denied allegations in Grossberg’s lawsuit.

“We’ll get Justin to have the CRTC threaten to ban FOX News for you Joe. That’ll learn ‘em!!”

Oh wait, that’s already happened…at least five days ago. When did Biden fall? When did Fox News have that banner go across the bottom of the screen?

Biden botches speech, says Putin's losing 'war in Iraq', not Ukraine
Author of the article:Eddie Chau
Published Jun 29, 2023 • Last updated 1 day ago • 1 minute read

U.S. President Joe Biden misspoke twice within a 24-hour period while talking about the ongoing war between Russia and Ukraine, ABC News reported.

The first incident occurred on Tuesday during a Democratic fundraiser in Chevy Chase, Md.


During a speech, Biden said all of Europe could be banded together “in the onslaught on Iraq” and get NATO united.

“I think they would have told you it’s not likely,” Biden said. “The one thing Putin counted on was being able to split NATO.”

It happened again on Wednesday during a speech at the White House.

When asked by reporters on whether Russian President Vladimir Putin was weakened after the brief mutiny by Yevgeny Priogozhin and his Wagner Group, Biden said: “It’s hard to tell, but (Putin is) clearly losing the war in Iraq, losing the war at home. And he has become a bit of a pariah around the world.”



Apparently, it’s not the first time Biden has had verbal slip-ups during his political career, something that opponents and critics have targeted as they question whether he’s fit for office based on his age.

Biden is currently the oldest sitting president in U.S. history at age 80. In previous interviews with ABC News, the president has said he’s taken a “hard look” at himself when deciding whether to seek reelection.

Biden creeps out little girl with awkward nibble kisses

U.S. President Joe Biden wrapped up a five-day visit to Europe where he continued to embarrass himself on the world stage.


During his departure from Helsinki, Finland, on Thursday, the President is seen greeting embassy staffers and their families before boarding Air Force One when he leans into a girl being held by her mother and makes chomping gestures towards her before smooching the toddler’s shoulder.


The startled girl appears to find it funny – at first – but perhaps her young female instincts kicked in and something inside her whispered, “Yo, dude, boundaries.”

The girl’s mother is seen scrambling for her phone to take a photo of the encounter, but the horrified youngster is already over it and turns away from the puckering POTUS.

Twitter was also weirded out by the entire incident after footage quickly made the rounds.

“This has got to be Biden’s creepiest moment yet with a child,” Balistic Social’s Caleb Hull wrote, adding in another tweet, “All Biden has to do is not do this and he can’t.”



One user tweeted, “At first it seems playful but what does he do? Goes in for the sniff. Who does that? Not normal people.”

Another added: “As a mom in grandma age range, I want to scoop EVERY baby up and snuggle… but I don’t because it’s creepy.”

Donald Trump Jr. retweeted the video with the caption, “Biden should be in a nursing home, not leading the free world.”

During the trip, Biden also committed a number of gaffes during various speeches, which included confusing Russia and Ukraine, their respective leaders, as well as Iceland and Ireland.

Earlier on Thursday, Biden referred to Icelandic Prime Minister Katrín Jakobsdóttir as a “daughter of Ireland,” before catching his slip-up.

“You can tell that’s a Freudian slip, I’m thinking of home,” said the President, whose Irish ancestors immigrated to the U.S. in the 1840s and 1850s.


The day before, while speaking to the NATO summit in Lithuania, Biden referred to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy as “Vladimir,” seemingly confusing Zelenskyy with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Then, at another event following the summit, Biden confused the two nations, referring to Ukraine as Russia.

“Russia could end this war tomorrow by withdrawing its forces from Ukraine and recognizing its international borders and ceasing its attacks – its inhumane attacks – on Russia … I mean by Russia on Ukraine,” Biden corrected.

This follows his fumble last month when he told reporters Putin was “clearly losing the war in Iraq.”

Biden’s dog Commander has bitten Secret Service officers 10 times in four months

WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden ‘s dog Commander bit Secret Service officers at least 10 times between October 2022 and January, including one incident that required a trip to the hospital for an injured law enforcement officer, according to records from the Department of Homeland Security.


The conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch on Tuesday released nearly 200 pages of Secret Service records that it obtained through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit.


The group said it filed suit after the agency, a division of DHS, “failed to respond adequately” to its request last December for records about biting incidents involving the purebred German Shepherd Dog. The group said it filed the request after receiving a tip about Commander’s behavior.

The White House and the Secret Service appeared to play down the situation on Tuesday.

Elizabeth Alexander, communications director for first lady Jill Biden, said in an email that the White House complex is a “unique and often stressful environment” for family pets and that the Biden family was “working through ways to make this situation better for everyone.”


Anthony Guglielmi, chief spokesperson for the Secret Service, said in a separate email that his agency has for the past several presidents “navigated how best to operate around family pets and these incidents are no exception. We take the safety and wellbeing of our employees extremely seriously.”

The Secret Service provides security protection for the president and his family, and scores of its officers are posted around the executive mansion and its sprawling grounds.

Biden received Commander in December 2021 as a gift from his brother James. The president’s previous dog, another German shepherd named Major, had been sent to live with friends in Delaware after some biting incidents of his own involving Secret Service officers and White House staff.


The family also has a cat, Willow.

On Nov. 3, 2022, a Secret Service official emailed colleagues that Commander had bitten a uniformed officer twice — on the upper right arm and thigh. Staff from the White House medical unit treated the officer and decided to have the individual taken to a hospital.

A captain of the Uniform Division emailed later that day that he had been advised that Commander was up to date on his vaccinations.

A note the following day added details about the attack, including that the officer who was bitten used a steel cart to protect himself from another attack. The officer later was placed on several days of restricted duty based on doctors’ advice.

Alexander said the Bidens have been working with the Secret Service and the White House residence staff “on additional leashing protocols and training” for Commander, as well as establishing designated areas where he can run around for exercise.


“The president and first lady are incredibly grateful to the Secret Service and Executive Residence staff for all they do to keep them, their family and the country safe,” Alexander added.

Guglielmi said Secret Service employees are encouraged to report job-related injuries to their immediate supervisors for appropriate documentation.

“As such, we are aware of past incidents involving first-family pets and these instances were treated similarly to comparable workplace injuries, to include with relevant notifications and reporting procedures followed,” he said.

“While special agents and officers neither care for nor handle the first family’s pets, we continuously work with all applicable entities to minimize adverse impacts in an environment that includes pets,” Guglielmi added.

Commander is often seen being handled by the White House’s chief groundskeeper.

The New York Post was first to report on Commander’s biting incidents.

Biden tells kids he knows where to get ice cream
Author of the article:postmedia News
Published Aug 17, 2023 • 2 minute read

U.S. President Joe Biden made an off-the-cuff remark about where children can get ice cream that some have called creepy.


The president spoke Wednesday afternoon in front of an audience at the White House on the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act.


He was introduced to the stage by Scott Strazik, the CEO of energy company GE Vernova, who said his children were in the audience.

“When America innovates, the world wins,” Strazik said. “So on behalf of our GE Vernova employees, on behalf of my nine-year-old daughter and my 11-year-old son I’m thankful to have here today, and their generation — because that’s why we’re doing this work — I want to thank the President.”




Biden received a round of applause from the audience before he went off-script.

“I want to say one thing to your children,” Biden said. “I know some really great ice cream places around here and daddy owes you, so talk to me afterwards.”



Some found the comments creepy.

“If he was 40 and not 80 do you think the Left would still defend Joe Biden’s routinely creepy uncle shtick?” one person shared on social media site X.

Another commenter added that they wouldn’t let their daughter near the president.

“His creepy touching and smelling little girls hair. It’s always seemed he (can’t) keep his hands off females.”

Even Ted Cruz, the U.S. Senator from Texas, reposted the clip and used the hashtag “#StrangerDanger.”



In recent times, Biden has been criticized for his awkward interactions, which includes pretending to gobble up a girl and then sniffed her at an airport during a July trip to Finland, and for making a creepy comment to a female Finnish reporter in Helsinki following a NATO summit in Lithuania in which he said, “You can’t tell me whether you’re going to be able to go home tonight. No one can be sure what they’re going to do.”

My prediction...

The Joe and Hunter crime spree will end with Joe Bidens lawyers playing the senile card with a claim he was manipulated by Hunter. This will avoid an Empeachment and end the Presidency softly.

Joe Biden lambasted after walking out of U.S. military medal ceremony

Joe Biden is facing criticism after he was seen walking out of a military medal ceremony before the event wrapped up.

At the White House on Tuesday, the U.S. President, 80, awarded the Medal of Honor to Capt. Larry Taylor, 81, a U.S. Army pilot who risked his life during the Vietnam War to save fellow American troops.


But before the ceremony came to an end, Biden was seen leaving while Taylor received a round of applause and before the closing prayer.



And that drew the wrath of people on social media.

“The recipient is left standing there with egg on his face,” a user on social media site X wrote.



Others called it sad, pathetic, a disgrace and disrespectful.

“So outrageous,” another wrote. “Why does he get a free pass all the time?”


One user was a little more charitable, assuming Biden “didn’t know what he was supposed to do next so he just took off.”

On the night of June 18, 1968, then-1st Lt. Taylor flew his Cobra attack helicopter to rescue four members of a reconnaissance team from almost certain death.

The army says that what Taylor did that night had never been attempted.

Biden gives rambling press briefing in Vietnam

Sleepy Joe is back!


U.S. President Joe Biden almost called a timeout during a news conference in Vietnam, where he gave a rambling, 26-minute speech about, well, many things.


The 80-year-old POTUS mistook the 1987 Robin Williams movie Good Morning Vietnam with a song, told a story about John Wayne and “Indians” before joking to reporters that he was going to hit the sack.



Biden, who arrived in Vietnam on Sunday, capping off a whirlwind trip to Asia that began two days before at the G20 summit in India, greeted everyone with a “good evening” before he went off the rails verbally.




“It’s already evening, isn’t it? It’s around the world in five days; it’s interesting,” he said.

“One of my co-workers said, ‘Remember the famous song Good Morning, Vietnam? Well, good evening, Vietnam.’”

The president was asked if he was concerned that there was no agreement on fossil fuels made at the G20 and replied with a story he said was from a John Wayne movie and featured Indigenous people who don’t believe it when a Union soldier says, “Everything will be good,” if they go back to the reservation.



“And the Indian looks at John Wayne and points to the Union soldier and says, ‘He’s a lying, dog-faced pony soldier,’” in the second video shared by RNC Research on the social-media site X (formerly Twitter).

“Well, there’s a lot of lying, dog-faced pony soldiers out there about global warming!”

The account shared another clip of Biden’s clumsy remarks on X.

“Biden gets VERY confused during his ‘press conference’ in Vietnam,” said the caption of the clip.

“I’ll just follow my orders here,” he says as he slowly sifts through notes. “Staff, is there anybody that hasn’t spoken yet? I ain’t calling on you.”



In another clip, he wanders out of the camera’s frame completely.



When the line of questioning turned toward China’s relationship with the U.S., he joked that he was sleepy all of a sudden.

“But I tell you what, I don’t know about you, but I’m going to go to bed,” he said.

Biden met with Chinese Premier Li Qiang at the G20 summit and revealed they discussed “stability” and that their meeting “wasn’t confrontational at all” before he was abruptly interrupted by a staffer.

“Thank you, everybody. This ends the press conference,” they said. “Thanks, everyone.”

Bedtime!
