Fox News Praises Man's Dying Wish: Don't Vote For Hillary

The Upright family (yes, really), posts a father's dying wish: to vote for anyone but Hillary. Fox News shows how desperate they are to bash the front-runner.

Fox and Friends is reaching pretty far for ammunition against Hillary Clinton. Since the sources are growing thin, they've gone to airing 'news' from the great beyond. When Larry Upright, a Republican grandfather from North Carolina, passed away last week, the family decided to publicize the obituary written by one of his granddaughters.


A North Carolina man's obituary asked two things of friends and family: instead of sending flowers for the funeral, give the money to charity. And don't vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton in 2016


From the beginning of the segment, you'd think this was something that was found in Mr. Upright's last will and testament. However, this was merely a little creative license, taken by the family, to gain notoriety from an issue they hold near and dear to their hearts. His daughter Jill McClain saw the obituary before making the final arrangements and, along with her mother and brother, decided to add this. The family respectfully asks that you don't vote for Hillary Clinton in 2016.

"We all grinned and said, he would have loved that!"

They received many positive condolences, as expected. What they didn't expect, being such god-fearing, Republicans who live in a bubble, were the negative ones.

Steve Doocy asks her, since the incident has gained such notoriety, would she do it all over again? She said yes because her dad would have loved it. She didn't do it for any other reason but to add a bit of levity to a sad passing.

I wonder if anyone wrote an obituary that said, 'if you vote for Scott Walker, I will suffer in perpetuity the fires of hell,' would that story gain any traction? Of course not, Fox News is too fair and balanced for that.
