President Obama decisively and conclusively shredded Mitt Romney on the subject of Libya during Tuesday night’s presidential debate, but Fox News won’t be deterred.
What follows is probably the dumbest thing you will witness on the internet today. Maybe even the dumbest thing you’ll see all week.
Watch Megyn Kelly capture today’s Moment of Derp
Declaring something an act of terror does not necessarily mean you are declaring it a terror attack. Any act that’s gonna kill our ambassador in this fashion could be described as an act of terror. That’s not necessarily the same as declaring it a terrorist attack. And it seems like the White House narrative is now going to be that the president was meaning to and did declare this a terrorist act.
Declaring it an “act of terror” is not the same as calling it a “terror attack?” Apparently Fox News is now disputing the meaning of words, proper syntax, and grammar in addition to everything else.
Coming from someone who described weapons-grade pepper spray as “a food product,” I suppose this isn’t necessarily shocking, but it is full of derp.
Whatever point the Republicans were originally trying to make, and whatever legitimate points the administration’s critics had, if any, they’ve now been lost in this bizarre nexus of conspiracy theory, outright denial, and buffoonery. They seem to have lost control of the narrative and are just throwing shit at a wall now.
