FOX News just humiliated themselves trying to boost Trump’s imaginary “border crisis”

As the president continues to relentlessly fearmonger about the imaginary crisis at our southern border, America’s resident white nationalist news network FOX News has been an eager participant in perpetuating his false narrative.

Things took a turn for the absurd this morning when a FOX reporter appeared at the “border” dressed in a tiny bulletproof vest that many viewers were quick to point out didn’t even contain the kevlar plates that actually protect the wearer, making it functionally useless.

A prop clearly designed to scare viewers into thinking that the border was much more dangerous than it actually was, social media immediately erupted into ruthless mockery and disgusted condemnation of the right-wing network’s idiotic attempt to dress their reporters in war zone cosplay.

It’s even more ridiculous because the southern border is one of the safest places in America. Border counties are 80% safer than comparable counties across the nation, according to the FBI. “There is no doubt, the U.S. side [of the border] is a very safe place,” announced the director of the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center, Christopher Wilson, last year.

The only real crisis happening on the border is the inhumane treatment that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement thugs are inflicting on the migrants that are fleeing US-sponsored instability and violence in their home countries.
