Boy, the totally not racist people defending this creep don't seem to have a firm grasp on what "doxxing" actually is. Like, that thread is filled with threats to "dox journalists," which in this case would mean exposing....who the journalists work for. Brilliant plan.

(And yes, I get that they mean it like exposing every possible personal/private detail about journalists; the point is that's not what happened with this guy.)

to be fair, it does seem appropriate that a guy who abetted a culture of sexual assault and harassment at fox news is now going to be gaslighting for a guy who has been regularly accused of sexual assault.

They are going to continue to blame the foreigners and not Trump as they wait in the unemployment line. it is quite an amazing feat. I don't know how to convince workers that a rich huckster is not looking out for their best interests.
