Fox’s Ainsley Earhardt Gets Blasted For ‘I Know People Are Dying…but Women Can’t Get Their Nails Done’
We have already noted the spectacularly stupid comment that managed to stand out today, on a morning show that is spectacularly stupid on any given morning. One-thousand are dead, there are more than 68,000 cases, and in just the past week over 3.3 million people filed for unemployment.
But Fox and Friends is on the case, they’re into getting the economy back up and running by appealing to what people really care about. Ainsley Earnhardt is here to tell us her tale of woe (Could that possibly be her real name? It’s just tailor-made for Fox News, old West Wing fans will understand – blonde Republican, mixed with a name that is one letter away from NASCAR royalty?): Per Our good friends at Rawstory (support them, they are invaluable).
Earhardt thought she saw an opening on the backstretch:
“I live in the city,” Ainsley Earhardt told her co-hosts. “You can’t go back to the city – you can, but I don’t want to, I don’t want to be around the area that’s infected the most,” she said. The New York City region is now the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S.
She drafted just enough, and then poured on the gas going into Turn Four:
“These are all the things. Women – y’all don’t think about this, guys, but – this is not a priority, but women have to get their hair done. I saw someone tweet out, ‘You’re gonna see what color our real hair is because our roots are going to grow in.’ Women – all my friends are saying, this is not a priority, people are dying and I realize that – but they can’t get their nails done.”
We assume she means her friends that aren’t dead yet are complaining about their nails, which won’t look very good when blue or purple, either in the ICU.
We showed this earlier, but now we’re setting up the response: She goes right by the Daytona grandstand, going for the lead!

And Earhardt gets clipped by the Twitter Number 666 car in the straightaway, sending her spinning into the infield where tents of VIPs are drinking chardonnay and eating shrimp:
"People are dying and I realize that, but they can't get their nails done."
A perfect distillation of Trump Republicanism.

And I challenge any woman to worry more about make-up than Trump!
.@ainsleyearhardt there are nurses on the front line in NYC wearing fucking trash bags in attempt to protect themselves -the best they can- and you’re discussing the inability to go get nails done. My gawd lady, MAGAts don’t come any dumber than you. https://t.co/0uCiRY07lW

Below, this particular woman happens to have her mind on the right things, and is still teaching – always will:
We face a public health crisis that threatens to bring another Great Depression. Families, hospitals, & small businesses need immediate aid. This is not the bill I wanted, but its immediate investments are vital. They are also insufficient. We will need to do more – and soon.

Earhardt totaled the car and tried to get the Twitter machine to eat the losses, but we have it here for all time.
I encourage everyone to find strings with the comment, and we’ll leave off at this. Peace, y’all – Jason, [email protected] and on Twitter @MiciakZoom:
