Educated Voters Frustrate Dooce On The Loose

So confident they will be right on election night.

Fox and Friends Host, Steve Doocy, had a bit of a rough morning on the streets of NYC outside the Fox 'News' studios. He tried to find some voters who will validate Fox News' obsession with discrediting and maligning Hillary Clinton, but he ran into some opposition.

Doocy was armed with a microphone and a Drudge Report cover featuring a two decade's old photo of Hillary, with hands up, taken during her quest to reform healthcare as First Lady. Fox and Drudge, two peas in a pod.

Of course, there's a very easy answer to Doocy's question. Democratic contests are not winner-take-all and award delegates on a proportional basis. But that might get in the way of calling Sanders a socialist and crapping on the Democrats in general. Fox News never lets facts get in the way of good ol' right wing propaganda.

Larry, the man on the street, is, unfortunately for Doocy, far better informed than his audience.

LARRY: I think the problem with Bernie Sanders is that he's too much of a social liberal and the country is moving more in the middle direction. When you are going to choose between him or Donald Trump as the next president, I think Hillary Clinton, to a lot of people, is the best candidate.

Larry obviously knew about the presidential thing and had his own opinion. Doocy tried to bait him with a Fox-slanted assessment of Bernie Sanders. He assumed that a Black Democrat in New York would be enticed by the free stuff claim.

DOOCY: Yeah, but -- let me ask you about this. I've been to some Bernie Sanders rallies, I get it. He's giving away free everything. I like that message, but then again I'm a realist and I don't know where he would pay for that. But it kind of seems like the system is rigged for Hillary because she got beat by Obama eight years ago.

LARRY: Oh, no. I don't see that to be true.

DOOCY: You don't think with the super delegates you don't think it's kind of rigged?

GUEST: No, I mean the way the country and the way our electoral system is set up they have the opportunity to vote for who they choose -- they think is the right candidate, and if they believe she is the right candidate they should have the opportunity to vote for her.

Clearly, Larry gets his news from a less biased news source than Fox.

The morning didn't get easier for Steve when he encountered a French gentleman who told him that Europe wants Hillary to win for one very simple reason: Trump is CRAZY! See that encounter below.

I'd love to see Doocy find a passerby who asks him a question or two. Real questions like,

  • Do you have your election night marching orders from Mr. Ailes yet?
  • Is Fox going to predict a landslide for Trump three days before he loses by 126 electoral votes, like they did for Romney?
  • What will become of Ham Rove if and when a Democrat wins again?

If you were the lucky person chosen for an interview, what would you say to a Fox 'News' guy holding up a DRUDGE picture on the Streets of NYC? We'd love to hear your suggestions.
