The Daily Show Twitter account released a video comparing content from Fox's news channels to North Korean state propaganda. The montage compares fawning domestic coverage of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un to Fox coverage of President Donald Trump. 

Cheekily announced by the Daily Show as a "PROPAGAND-OFF," the video contains no narration. The scenes speak for themselves. Fox personalities Jeanine Pirro (Fox News Channel), Sean Hannity (Fox News Channels) and Lou Dobbs (Fox Business Network) can all be seen fawning over the president.

Perhaps the most chilling moment is an off-camera Fox News Channel pundit proclaiming: "Donald Trump has instincts that are different than ours. But most of the time, 99 percent of the time, they tend to be better than ours."
