I had Fox on earlier this evening. Bret Baier was hosting a panel, which included Harold Ford Jr, former Congressman from TN (he’s now a PNC bigshot, I believe). Anyway, my husband and I noticed something…odd.

I mean, can you even?
We weren’t the only ones to notice, apparently, as someone sent us this tweet from Bret Baier addressing the issue.

Are you satisfied with that explanation? Because I’m not.
Per Bret Bair- Ford Jr is renting a vacation home & “doesn’t control the walls” in said vacay home.
But that doesn’t explain why Ford Jr CHOSE THAT SPOT to do his FNC hit from. I’d be horrified & would choose another spot or explain it on air if it actually bothered me.

Coupla things to note here. If I were renting a vacation home, and a giant picture of Mao was hanging on the wall, I’d likely be tempted to leave and not line the pockets of the kind of person who hangs giant commie pictures up for decoration. But let’s just assume that leaving wasn’t possible. If I were scheduled to do a TV hit from that vacation home, I would DEFINITELY AVOID filming from the room where that picture was visible. And if for some reason I couldn’t do that, I would be MORTIFIED and would adjust my freaking camera to NOT HAVE THE PICTURE IN THE FRAME.
This isn’t brain surgery, for crying out loud.
You know who wouldn’t do any of the things I just listed? A person who takes no issue with a giant picture of Mao hanging on the wall behind him. That’s who.
It’s fun when Democrats show us exactly who they are.
Ford Jr has responded to the controversy with this:
As @BretBaier said, I’m just renting a place – didn’t choose the art – my house has Ali and MLK on the walls – no fan of Communist China or Mao – my public record and words on Fox and elsewhere about China prove that
