Fox News Snob To Obama: We've Never Demonized The Poor-- ROLL THE TAPE!

“Daily Show host Jon Stewart caught Fox Business’ Stuart Varney in a lie on Wednesday, showing footage undermining Varney’s claim that neither he nor his network were out to insult the poor.

“How f*cking removed from reality is Fox’s perception of their own coverage on poverty? The main defender of your network’s attitude towards those in poverty is the main offender,” Stewart said “He does segments that would make Ebenezer Scrooge go, ‘Hey, take it easy, these are people we’re talking about.’”

Stewart played a montage of footage dating back to 2011 in which Varney uses phrases like “handout nation” to describe the poor, or saying they lack a “richness of spirit.” Most damningly, Varney openly says in a June 2013 clip, “I am being mean to poor people.””

  1. Daniel Lopez says:

    Fox viewers listen to this crap day in day out

  2. Bush created the phone program

  3. Omg I so hope Hell exists cos that's exactly where Stuart Varney should be going…

  4. LA One says:

    Look at how the poor get very little in this country and this why they are on the streets you dumbass. The wealthiest are still sucking them dry. Varney you had 2 women you cheated on your wife with for 16 years, not someone I'd take any credence in! The poor are poor because they have a conscience and can't steal from others like corporate does!

    Massive Nationwide strike after this tax/healthcare sh*t. You liars can get off you asses and labor for yourself.

  5. Robert Simon says:

    Tv,refrigerator and microwave equals being rich…

  6. addy kelly says:

    My parents had six kids and my dad worked two jobs always. My mum never owned an automatic washing machine as it was too expensive but we always had a tv.

  7. addy kelly says:

    I remember years ago someone on food stamps being denied because they were trying to buy yogurt and were told it was a luxury item. Store brand yogurts are cheap but some assholes thought only middle class people should be allowed to eat them.

  8. Is Varney still alive? Or is there still a horribly disfigured looking portrait still in his attic nobody has yet destroyed?

  9. I would love to watch Bernie sanders take this asshole down about 4 pegs! I'm not sure, but I would think subsidized housing that the working poor live in would provide fridges, air conditioners, etc. But they'd barely be functional and/or always needing repair. The only thing the rich are taking on the chin are a few less hits of cocaine as they rig the stock market in their favor! I shudder to think of them having to downgrade their yacht!

  10. Even though fox news is a joke, this guy is totally right. If you own a fridge, microwave, and TV, you ain't really poor. Go to third world countries someday to know what poverty really looks like.

  11. LOLLL, 20% of millions leaves millions, 13% of not much leaves a whole lot less.

  12. Baka, Baka, BAKA!!!

  13. Pyroman / says:

    oh no billionaires only make like 40 mil a year instead of 60 million or something

  14. Silent Joe says:

    Kind of misleading to have Jon Stewart in the thumbnail…

  15. vidfreak56 says:

    Those poor 1%ers. They are suffering!

  16. He's totally right, someone who makes 29 million dollars a year is suffering so much more than someone who makes maybe $10,000 a year. How are they supposed to buy a new island a month and breed ligers without that extra 10 mill?

  17. AllYourBase says:

    wondering what the plan would be tho. if they want to make the poor poorer because they think they can manage with less money, wont that affect sales of these things hes talking about and thus reduce the money going to his rich buddies?

  18. Astrobrant2 says:

    $39 million a year to $29 million a year? Man, my chin could take a lot of that kind of pounding! Hell, I'd be thrilled to take a bludgeoning of only ONE million dollars a year!

  19. G Kab says:

    How in the Hell is an Englishman telling me about US politics.

  20. "It turns out that the rich have suffered more than you" Did you ever hear anything so asinine?

  21. "People are lacking the richness of spirit"😂😂😂 I guess corporations are writing these scripts for Fox News to regurgitate for laughs amongst themselves.

  22. Going from 39 mil to 29 mil is poverty to the rich. Remember that because it shows how far detached from reality the wealthy really are.

  23. Stewart Varney needs to be locked up in a deep, dark dungeon, beaten with heavy clubs 5 times a day, and given only poisoned food to eat.

  25. JNF says:

    The poor have things required for modern life? We'll have to do something about that.

  26. emanny1986 says:

    How does a human being get this stupid?

  27. wow that stuart varney guy is seriously pushing the limits of how despicable you can get lol. so having a refrigerator and microwave is luxury now is it

  28. Stuart Varney completely demonizes lower income families. So hot water, a television and a microwave is a "luxury" ?? Yes a microwave definitely screams decadence!! I am the oldest of four children, my mom was a single parent who WORKED, went to school and (drumroll) had food stamps to feed the family and Stewie says our financial situation is due to a "lack of spirit" ??? A single mom working and getting degree, with four children… has no spirit?!?? Sick

  29. Szriko says:

    The poor are worse than demons – At least demons have a clear, obvious goal, and work for it.

    The poor? The poor are lazy layabouts mooching off of society. They should be rounded up and hung, and have their worthless corpses burned to generate power. At least then they'd finally contribute something.

  30. stuart varney is an asshole….

  31. The top 1% is only making $29,000,000 a year!! While the poor people have refrigerators????? The top are suffering FAR more than the lower classes….

  32. Oh let me feel sorry for the ritch while I have to live in my car!!!

  33. "They have THINGS. What they lack is the RICHNESS OF SPIRIT."

    This guy is straight out of Parks and Rec, man.

  34. Maybe TYT staff life style is so high they dont know real poverty

  35. Fox news is upset because poor are not poor enough

  36. Irish 1916 says:

    27% don't have cable tv? holy shit I've never been in a house where they didn't have tv

  37. Anyone defending Stuart Varney lacks a richness of decency

  38. Total idiot!! So when the poor are able to buy a refrigerator , it's a bad thing? This waste of human flesh makes it seem that having a refrigerator and a microwave a luxury? Why are Fox News people so fucken stupid??!!

  39. So what, he's demonizing the poor with facts? It's not hard to catch Fox news spewing bullshit. Why does TYT feel the need to call them out when they're speaking facts for once?

  40. tata131211 says:

    I can't believe the things that come out of his mouth

  41. seker7 says:

    How do you spew this crap with a str8t face? .. I always wondered why the TeaNutJob's were all 'offended' by the 'Lib' attacking the stinking rich…. guess  this British poof helped brainwash them?
