FOX News got creative in its description of the Affordable Care Act. Explaining “Obamacare” in a manner with which the average FOX viewer can relate, The Five put it the best way they possibly could to ensure that even the most mindless, low-IQ Conservative voter could understand: It’s like that festering sore on Sally Mae from the bathroom at Sizzler’s lip.
In discussing the numerous “Obama scandals (Um-ber-ella-ella-ella Hey, hey, hey),” Greg Gutfeld said that they “come and go” like a “cold sore on a stripper’s lip.” He pointed out that perhaps the Republican party should stop focusing on scandals and “crisis,” and start focusing on something positive.
Attempting to drive the conversation back to the Wall Street Journal’s Obamacare numbers, faux Democrat Julie Roginsky said of Obamacare, “But like the cold sore on the hooker’s lip it will keep flaring up….” Gutfeld interjected that he said “stripper,”” rather than “hooker”, and Eric Boling added that “now strippers are going to be really mad.”
Roginsky continued, “It will keep flaring up, unless he gets in under control.”
Boling added, in the classy fashion FOX News has carefully cultivated, that even if healthcare.gov does get fixed, “You can fix the cold sore, but she’s still a stripper.”
Boling is apparently unaware that herpes simplex one is not curable, and that once you have it–you have it for life. When has FOX been very strong with medical knowledge, though?
Not satisfied to simply make medically inaccurate statements in an effort to bash Obama, Boling added that “Obamacare is like prostitution.” There was no elaboration, but we can only assume that he thinks prostitution ensures that poor people can get health coverage. Perhaps their comparison is within reason, though. After all, who would know more about prostitution than the staff at FOX?
