Multiple people noticed the painting of Mao behind Harold Ford Jr. during his interview on Thursday with Fox News’ 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 judging… 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. It’s a rental house.
“Harold is not a Maoist,” Bert assures us. “He was elected in Tennessee”:
As noted in previous tweet Tom. — “Harold @HaroldFordJr is renting a home for a few weeks in a vacation spot – he doesn’t control the walls. Strong background analysis, but Harold is not a Maoist- he was elected in Tennessee. Thanks for watching” https://t.co/7caESAnmwu

Ford added later that he’s “no fan of Communist China or Mao – my public record and words on Fox and elsewhere about China prove that”:
As @BretBaier said, I’m just renting a place – didn’t choose the art – my house has Ali and MLK on the walls – no fan of Communist China or Mao – my public record and words on Fox and elsewhere about China prove that

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