Not that Fox. An actual fox. But we should probably still accuse it of racism and working for the Koch Brothers to be on the safe side.
Squirrels frolic in the first lady’s vegetable garden, feasting on overgrown tomato vines. Bees are left to their own devices, their waxy cells dripping with uncollected honey. The birds have a field day with plants left to go to seed. And at dusk and dawn there comes the fox, treading gingerly through the long grass of the South Lawn.
“The wildlife that lives on the historic 18-acre campus—including a newly arrived fox now making a home at the White House—are having a field day,” Kohan reports. “Thanks to the shutdown, groundskeepers have given up on their efforts to catch the elusive creature, who showed up to live inside the White House gates more than two weeks ago. [The fox] has been spotted many times at dawn and dusk” according to the White House sources she says are “highly reliable and multiple.”
And anonymous of course. Because no one in the White House will go on the record about even a fox in the South Lawn. Still everyone is making the best of it.
Toure has already gone on MSNBC and compared the fox to the return of the Confederacy.
Chris Matthews has shaken his head and bemoaned a fox so racist that it doesn’t seem to understand the racial implications of invading the garden of Michelle Obama at a time when she’s under attack by FOX News.
Michael Moore is planning a documentary about the fox and the Koch Brothers blaming it for the destruction of the economy. So far he has three hours of footage of him screaming at a raccoon because none of his unpaid interns wanted to tell him he had the wrong species.
Alec Baldwin has called the fox a pig and Gabrielle Giffords has announced that she’s patching things up with the NRA in a bid to get the fox.
Members of the Congressional Black Caucus have complained that the fox shouted racial slurs at them while they were dropping by the White House.
