Jen Psaki notices one ‘awkward’ thing about Fox News’ bogus LGBTQ outrage

On Sunday, MSNBC’s Jen Psaki pointed out how Fox News’ outrage at companies that promote LGBTQ rights doesn’t sound exactly right.

Psaki, a former Biden White House press secretary, noted how the conservative network “can’t get enough” of right-wing attacks and calls to boycott companies – such as Bud Light, Target and Kohl’s. – who celebrate LGBTQ rights with their products.

“But the thing is, and it’s kind of awkward for them there, their editorial side may not even be aligned with Fox’s business side,” Psaki explained.

PSAKI pointed out how, despite Fox News’ recent “strange tweet attacking Target for its support of GLSEN, an organization whose goals are to end discrimination and bullying based on sexual orientation, gender identity, gender and gender expression in K-12 schools”, its parent company Fox Corp. actually supported the group in 2021.

“It’s not crazy to know why. It’s a good business decision,” she said.

PSAKI asked why right-wing figures were so outraged by Pride-celebrating merchandise now, given how many companies have embraced it for years.

“It’s the modern American right desperately trying to draw new battle lines in its culture war. They’re looking for them,” she said.
