Multiple people noticed the painting of Mao behind Harold Ford Jr. during his interview on Thursday with Fox Newsâ Bret Baier:
How in the freaking world do you have a portrait up of Mao in your living room? Ford Jr. must be okay with the fact that Mao has killed over 60 Million of his own people. ?? pic.twitter.com/4tATcCmsiM

Not judgingâŚ but sure is interesting that @HaroldFordJr has a print of mass murderer Mao over his fireplace.

But, alas, this is not the home of the Tennessee Dem. Itâs a rental house.
âHarold is not a Maoist,â Bert assures us. âHe was elected in Tennesseeâ:
As noted in previous tweet Tom. â âHarold @HaroldFordJr is renting a home for a few weeks in a vacation spot â he doesnât control the walls. Strong background analysis, but Harold is not a Maoist- he was elected in Tennessee. Thanks for watchingâ https://t.co/7caESAnmwu

Ford added later that heâs âno fan of Communist China or Mao â my public record and words on Fox and elsewhere about China prove thatâ:
As @BretBaier said, Iâm just renting a place â didnât choose the art â my house has Ali and MLK on the walls â no fan of Communist China or Mao â my public record and words on Fox and elsewhere about China prove that

Whatâs funny, however, is that Fox News seem to have realized it mid-interview:
