Fox News Gets Punk’d by Comedian Pretending to be Obama Voter Turned Romney Supporter [Video]
Fox News is desperate to find disaffected Obama supporters so that it can push the meme that voters are fed up with President Obama. That desperation led the network to get duped by comedian Max Rice, who, it appears, pretended to be a former Obama supporter turned Romney supporter just to get a little air time.
Fox & Friends co-host Gretchen Carlson introduced Rice as a pitiful college graduate who was forced to move back in with his parents because of the economy. However, it quickly became apparent that Rice was just having a little fun at the expense of Fox News.
The first hint that something was amiss was Rice addressing Carlson with, “Hello, Miss USA! It’s an honor.”
Carlson pointed out that she had actually been Miss America.
“Miss Universe, in my book,” Rice said.
That should’ve been a clue to cut the interview, but Carlson insisted, and it was downhill from there.
Rice continued, saying he was a huge Obama supporter and “met him in third grade,” and said he switched his allegiance to Romney because he lost a basketball game to a friend.
“Are you being serious about this interview or not?” Carlson said after a while, eventually telling him she was going to wrap things up because she was “not sure that you’re ready for primetime.”
Of course, Max Rice is not a disaffected Obama supporter, but a stand-up comedian trying to get a little buzz for himself. Mission accomplished.
