For what feels like the tenth time this summer, The Daily Show took aim at Fox News in a minute-long reel that puts the conservative network's hypocrisy over the COVID-19 vaccine on full display. The supercut showcases how Fox News hosts' attitude towards "Operation Warp Speed" has changed depending on the president in office: last year, pundits praised Trump's "quick" vaccine dissemination process, but now, they're dismissing the FDA's full approval of the Pfizer vaccine as "rushed."
The Daily Show's Twitter account summed up the phenomenon quite nicely in a tweet, writing, "When you love warp speed but not TOO much warp speed."
