‘Daily Show’ Hits ‘Freedom’-Fighters At Fox News With A New Nickname

·1 min read

“The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” on Thursday debuted a new World War II-themed nickname for the Fox News personalities railing against President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The conservative network’s hosts and guests were branded a “Band of Bullshitters” in the bit.

“The Daily Show’s” spoof trailer shows the conservative network’s guests and hosts — including prime-time anchors Laura Ingraham, Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson — likening the battle against the mandate to “our generation’s World War II” and praising holdouts as heroic and brave. (Vaccine holdouts, actually, are allowing the pandemic to persist.)

The spoof is cut with this text:

“In the 1940s, America stormed the beaches to unseat a genocidal dictator. Now their descendants are waging a new, equally heroic war ... against a life-saving vaccine. This winter, meet a new Band of Brothers fighting totalitarianism from the studios of Fox News. Band of Bullshitters, Freedom is Contagious.”
