A Fox News chyron has the agenda-driven media in a tizzy for labeling President Joe Biden as a “wannabe dictator” — odd how there are rarely ever any protestations from the media about CNN and MSNBC chyrons.
The offending message reportedly appeared at the end of the 8 p.m. hour, with the indictment of former President Donald Trump in Miami earlier in the day for his handling of classified documents being the story of the day.
Axios reporter Alex Thompson shared a screengrab of the chyron, which read: “Wannabe dictator speaks at the White House after having his political rival arrested.”

The chyron summarizes rather succinctly the reality that the Department of Justice under President Biden is attempting to take out his chief political rival in the upcoming election — an unprecedented two-tiered legal action often seen in third-world countries.
Fox News had a split screen of Biden and Trump speaking — Biden and first lady Jill Biden hosted a Juneteenth concert on the South Lawn of the White House Tuesday evening, in what the administration called a “celebration of community, culture, and music.” The president spoke briefly, reminding all how racist America remains.
“As the past few years remind us, our freedoms have been put at risk by racism that’s still too powerful a force,” Biden proclaimed, going on to spew fanciful rhetoric about how “to heal the wounds of division so racism no longer tears us apart.”
As for Trump, he flew to New Jersey after being arraigned on 37 criminal counts — the former president pleaded not guilty — and delivered a speech from Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
Fox News carried parts of the speech:

“Today we witnessed the most evil and heinous abuse of power in the history of our country,” Trump said Tuesday night.
“This day will go down in infamy and Joe Biden will forever be remembered as not only the most corrupt president in the history of our country but, perhaps even more importantly, as the president who, together with a band of his closest thugs, misfits and Marxists, tried to destroy American democracy,” the former president added.
Here are two compelling thoughts on the story, as seen on Twitter:
It’s the truth.
