This is so beyond sickening.

The Conservative media as a whole has proven the depths of their depravity to this nation time and time again. They have attacked First Lady Dr. Jill Biden for something as minuscule and ridiculous as her inaugural outfit or her hair scrunchie. They have launched a smear campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris’s step-daughter because she landed a modeling contract while former First Lady Melania Trump couldn’t even land a magazine cover. They have smeared and defamed our side for every stupid, nitpicking little detail they could manage to come up with because it’s clear that President Biden is doing an amazing job and something as ridiculous as a hair scrunchie is all the “dirt” they could manage to come up with.

But this time… This time they have taken things way too far.

Conservative news network, Newsmax, who seems to be on the fast track to replace Fox News with themselves as Donald Trump’s favorite trash TV, recently stooped to a new, disgusting all-time low when they had the audacity to actually add a laugh track to an audio clip of President Joe Biden stuttering in some appalling effort to prove that Biden’s speech impediment is actually funny.

Newsmax host Benny Johnson kicked off his weekend segment by attempting to argue that liberals and Democrats have lost their sense of humor.

“If we don’t regularly practice our right to ridicule, we will lose it,” Johnson attempted to explain. “This is why it is more important than ever in American history to keep humor and ridicule alive. Because it is now clear that we could very well be on the verge of losing it.”

“If we can just admit, right now, together, that we are living under one of the funniest administrations in American history,” he added.

The right-wing news host then went on to play clips of President Biden stuttering accompanied by a laugh track as well as his own rounds of laughter at the clips.

“If you don’t laugh, you may cry,” Johnson declared after the disgusting clips ended. “Use your God-given right to laugh. It’s healthy. It’s good for you. It’s good for our country.”

“Laugh at me, I deserve it,” he said.

We haven’t lost our sense of humor, Johnson. We just know disgusting, cruel bullshit when we see it.
