LGF Is Actually Hallucinating On #Weinergate

Another lie from Little Green Footballs – h/t to @marcoesquondola

also LGF says he left his "laptop" with the pic on it unattended..i listen to O&A every day and it was his ipad and pic wasn’t on

Here’s what Charles Jonson accused Breitbart of …

In fact, two nights ago, Andrew Breitbart went out drinking with Anthony and several others — and according to Anthony, showed the picture to numerous people, even leaving his laptop computer unattended with the picture on the screen for long periods of time.

One of those people was right wing flamethrower Ann Coulter. Here’s Anthony’s photo of Coulter reacting to the picture; notice that his computer is apparently there, but Breitbart is nowhere to be seen.

Breitbart owns a Mac Air, an iPad and an iPhone Blackberry. Look at the picture – that’s no Apple product.


And LizBuddie thinks it might not even be a computer.

That’s doesn’t look like a PC to me. Looks like a restaurant sign/stand, like the kind that hold menus.

And it seems Coulter is laughing at something she’s been told. Right? Not a picture on the imaginary Breitbart computer.

Chuck sees what he wants to see – maybe that’s where the little green footballs name comes from.

UPDATE: It’s a sign – here’s Google Street View


But Charles – a ‘Mac junkie – won’t correct the obvious error.

  1. Fish in barrel shot.

    Still someone had to do it, before it becomes another legend of Breitbart’s alleged dishonesty.

  2. And it seems Coulter is laughing at something she’s been told. Right?


    And certainly, that is not the reaction anyone would have at Weiner’s explicit photo. Only a crazy person would think Coulter would be pleased to see that.

    Now, if Coulter had this look on her face, maybe I’d believe she had seen the picture in that image.

    I realize the main issue here isn’t really in dispute anyway, but LGF got another obvious fact completely wrong. He’s trying so hard to prove his point, though. It’s cute, in a way.

    honestly i could picture her laughing like that at the sight of the pic. but its clearly not caused by that.

  4. Well, you’re crazy.

    No seriously, it’s not a very funny picture. And I know exactly how Ann Coulter would react to such a picture because I’ve probably sent her 20 like that. Only I used USPS with photo delivery confirmation.

  5. I haven’t been to LGF in years. Now I remember why.

    For those people who might be a little slow on the uptake, the fact that the picture doesn’t match any device in the database means that it is a FAKE. Fauxtoshopped. Digitally enhanced. An all-around fraud.

  6. Wouldn’t she be throwing up violently?

  7. Wow, that is just precious.

    There’s Breitbart’s laptop, sitting out on a stand in the middle of the sidewalk outside a bar in NYC.

    Right. Moron.

  8. I don’t know what is motivating Chuckles to perform faceplant after faceplant, but he really seems to enjoy it. He’s like an arsonist, getting a thrill out of creating firestorms and watching people freak out. Did someone hypnotize him and make him think he is Beavis?

  9. Why do you pay any attention to this nut? Once upon a time he was rational. Then he’d start criticizing people, I’d follow his links and I’d be scratching my head wondering what he was talking about. Finally I couldn’t take it any more and left. I almost never go back unless somebody links him, which is almost never on the blogs I read. I wouldn’t give him any traffic.

  10. That’s definitely not a Mac laptop, but I don’t think it’s one of the street signs that appears in the Google Street View either. Both signs we see in Street View are the standalone kind that form a letter A shape when set out on the sidewalk. But the object in the Coulter reaction shot has only one side to it — if it was the sign from the street view shot, we’d see the back half of the sign in the shot as well.

    I don’t know if I’m making much sense — I’d do better describing this in person where I could point at different parts of the screen. :-)

    Note that I am not agreeing with Charles Jonson here: in particular, I don’t think this shot is of Ann Coulter laughing at something she’s seeing on that laptop. Note her body language and where her eyes are pointing: not down at the screen, but at the person she’s talking to. She’s laughing at something he said, not something he showed her on a laptop.

  11. That Breitbart is a slick one – he even carries around a table to set his laptop on when he’s on a street corner!

  12. @Robin Munn – the sign being referenced in the picture is the one with the white face, directly below Whistle in the awning. Clearly, it’s on a stand, and it’s set at an angle.

    Ted (f79cc7)

  13. Actually, Robin, I think it is the sign on the stand – looks similar to a music stand in the picture that is reflecting white to the right of the doors, but I could be wrong. If so, I’ll admit it – unlike C the J.

  14. @Ted – Oh, I see the one you’re talking about. Yeah, that makes more sense than the idea that a restaurant would set sidewalk tables out under scaffolding (and if that’s a laptop, then it’s clearly sitting on a table). I’m convinced now: that’s a sign.

    Robin Munn (dc8d89)

  15. Plus (and I can’t believe I’m bothering)….if that thing is a laptop, it’s from around 1992 when laptop screens were 2 inches thick.

  16. Whats in Musto’s left hand? Does he maybe have a copy of the picture on his phone (is that his phone?) that he just showed Ann?

  17. You guys are going to have to understand that when you hyperbolically rise to success for noticing a Microsoft font, get some broad range of followers that guide your site to be more center right, then, when your true colors fly after the new president is from the other party, your credibility begins to be questioned.
    And after carrying water for what appears to be a very self-centered leader with very, very little experience other than the eternal campaign, eventually the lead in the foil hat you wear will begin to penetrate into your mind, creating what you have become today: Little Green Fool.

  18. “Yeah, that makes more sense than the idea that a restaurant would set sidewalk tables out under scaffolding”

    A tiny, trivial FYI: As a matter of fact, that does happen: On Tuesday I walked by such a restaurant on Michigan Ave. just North of the Art Institute of Chicago.

  19. You guys are going to have to understand that when you hyperbolically rise to success for noticing a Microsoft font

    When you rise to success for taking credit when several others notice a Microsoft font, and you make some stupid throbbing gif file based on what other people noticed, etc etc etc.

    Fixed it for you. :p

  20. Well the pix looks like a night shot. If it is a computer screen my bet is that it is for the hostess seating charts… It does not look like a laptop, it looks like a monitor…
    Ann is definitely not looking at the monitor, her eyes are looking right (as always ;D)

  21. I used to like Charles’ website until he appeared to go insane.

  22. It’s a menu. End of story.

  23. She is so cute.

  24. Thank you charles, for posting this lovely candid shot of Ann Coulter.

    Do we have poster size available? coffee mugs?

  25. Chuckie Johnson is a California hippie with no principle or set of values. I dont even know why he was at a time such a big deal. He is a pathetic moron.

    Winston (242ae6)

  26. Chuckles has banned you from his web site you never went to.

  27. This clown’s 15 minutes of fame was over 7 years ago. Nothing more pitiful than an aging actress still trying to land those femme fatale roles.

    RickZ (3ad5fb)

  28. Rickz, in a fair world, liars who are simply talented at getting attention by being truly unfair to others would get only 15 minutes of fame.

    Sadly, all the people similar to LGF’s POV who are kind and honest can’t get any attention. Charles Johnson has lost most of his following, but what’s left of it is there because being a dick is pretty effective.

    And I think Charles Johnson is quite talented at saying things that good people find impossible to resist correcting.

    He really is the ultimate troll.
