I can't stop laughing at how warped reddit is. Call HRC and Pelosi lightning rods for motivating the right wing base and highly toxic for the Democratic Party and the down votes flood in, and somehow I'm apparently I'm a Trump guy. "They are not toxic! They are not lightning rods! They both have served the country, the popular vote and.... RRRREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!"
I guess r/politics is truly where Correct the Record moved onto after the Hillary Clinton sub finally became the ignored back water that it deserves to me.
Sounds like a case of "Everyone who doesn't agree with me is to the right of me!".
I think the real highlight was that someone said that calling those 2 toxic was "right wing" because it was said on "Fox and Friends." I mean, really? Fox and Friends is the ultimate benchmark for what is right wing now,eh? From the same news organization as Megyn Kelly (kinda/sorta right wing but not anywhere as bad as Hannity) and Shepard Smith (why he's getting attacked I can't even fathom, he actually is pretty fair in what he says). I know plenty of people on the American left who agree with it, and even Trump says it would be bad for the GOP if Pelosi went away because of how much she fires up the right wing, but...
Fox has its bias, but it mostly comes out in its talk shows, like O'Reilly and Hannity. Fox News overall isn't all that bad, its just that they have these ultra-right wing fanbois that follow it and then spin everything for their agenda.
