Fox News Calls El Salvador, Guatemala, And Honduras ‘3 Mexican Countries,’ Gets Blasted For Bigotry

Get ready for another round of “did they do that on purpose or could they really be that racist and ignorant,” because Fox News was caught Sunday morning sporting a chyron saying “Trump Cuts U.S. Aid To 3 Mexican Countries” while referring to El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras. Although it doesn’t matter what countries they were referring to, because the only country that is located within the borders of Mexico is Mexico.

It’s bad enough that their overlord is cutting off all direct aid to these countries because migrants are coming from them as though lack of aid won’t make the conditions even worse, producing even more migrants that Trump can suggest we mow down with machine guns. At least try to have a basic grip on the concept of what a country is.

Fox News has apologized for the “error,” making host Ed Henry say: “We had an inaccurate graphic on screen while talking about this very story. We just want to be clear, the funding is being cut off to the three Central American countries. We apologize for the error.”

But was it an error, or a way to spread more hate and ignorance about a certain type of people who are already currently being targeted for racist fearmongering to drive votes to Republicans? Does Fox News want to answer that? No?

Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez herself responded to the news of this racist Chyron with a reminder that these are the same people constantly attacking her intelligence as a Latina woman.

And she’s not the only one. In spite of the apology, everyone who’s anyone is dragging the hell out of Fox News today, because they deserve it.

Apologize by taking yourself off the air, Fox News.
