Democrat candidate for president Martin O’Malley is in South Carolina today along with Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to rally supporters and file officially for the South Carolina primary. Addressing what some might call “the crowd,” O’Malley reached for a microphone and to his horror realized it was a Fox News mic.

“It burns!” O’Malley exclaimed.

(That’s the story behind the microphone; we have no idea what that finger’s doing in the frame.)

As angrily as some Democrat politicians dismiss “Faux News,” we thought it was a pretty good joke. Unfortunately for O’Malley, a lot of people think his campaign against nominee-in-waiting Hillary Clinton is a joke too.

C’mon, Martin. Not a current socialist, not under FBI investigation.
