Another day, another unhinged segment on Fox News.

As the 2020 presidential election draws nearer, the right-wing news network invited “Diamond and Silk” – two of president Trump’s most ardent supporters – on to discuss the Democratic primary race.

During the segment, the pair made a particularly bizarre and nonsensical claim about Democrats Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren.

Diamond said:

They’re pushing these socialistic ideas in different forms.

After discussing their plans for healthcare and immigration, she concluded:

On Twitter, people found the error hilarious.
