Comedy Central’s Daily Show mocked the Fox News caravan obsession in a fitting way on Wednesday: with a spooky Halloween video splicing shots of absurd fear-mongering from the network with clips of migrants and shots of zombies devouring human flesh.
“The migrant caravan, it’s inching closer to our border,” Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade says in the clip. “They’ll be here by election day, we’re told,” Fox Business host Stuart Varney warns, in a line that could have been fed to him by President Donald Trump himself.
The clip moves on to the series of Fox News guests who have warned, baselessly, that the migrant caravan is bringing diseases like leprosy and polio to the United States. Fox News reporter Griff Jenkins is shown hiding in the bushes ready to catch border crossers. “It’s an invasion,” Tomi Lahren says. “There is a mob of humanity driving towards the U.S. border,” Chris Stirewalt adds.
The terrifying video peaks, naturally, with a shot of Jeanine Pirro demanding the military be dispatched to the border to meet the incoming invasion.
The clip concludes with Fox News host Shepard Smith, who explained on his show this week: “There is no invasion. No one’s coming to get you. There is nothing at all to worry about.”
Tell that to the flesh eating invaders, Shep.
