FOX News just blindsided Trump with a surprise blow to his last-minute midterm election campaigning

The President’s final message to the American people before the mid-term elections is a disgusting show of xenophobia and racism based explicitly on white nationalist conspiracy theories.

His campaign has been airing a video advertisement calling on the American people to vote Republican in order to “stop” the caravan of Honduran refugees that may or may not be heading towards the United States, which he has baselessly accused of being filled with “bad guys,” “gang members,” and “Middle Easterners.”

Seeing that it was entirely devoid of any redeeming qualities and largely lacking a basis in reality, CNN refused to air the ad, provoking an online tantrum from Donald Trump Jr.

We wonder what he’s going to do now that CNN has been joined by the president’s personal propaganda network, FOX News:

FOX News did not give any reason for their decision, but judging from NBC’s decision to do the same, we can surmise that it was from public backlash.

In a disgusting show of greed, NBC decided to show the racist ad during the marquee Sunday Night Football game between (arguably) the two best quarterbacks in the NFL.

The game between the Green Bay Packers and the New England Patriots was watched by a record-breaking number of people — many of them in Wisconsin, whose Republican Governor, Scott Walker, is fighting a tough re-election battle — and millions of viewers complained to NBC about being forced to watch an advertisement that sounds like it was written by David Duke.

NBC apologized on Monday and announced they would no longer be airing the ad. Facebook quickly followed suit.

But the decision of FOX News to do the same came as a huge surprise, considering that several of their anchors openly traffic in white nationalism on a nightly basis and their network has been covering the “caravan” non-stop for weeks now.

It appears there’s a line that even FOX won’t cross — and Trump barreled his way across it without a second of hesitation.

That should tell you all you need to know about how important it is that we retake Congress tomorrow and put a check on this racist and his illegitimate presidency.
