Once again, Fox News has created a stir out of nothing and once again Jon Stewart has destroyed their argument by using their own words against them.
Fox News personalities like Sean Hannity have been poorly quoting select verses written by Common in outrage over his invitation to perform poetry at the White House's celebration of poetry on Wednesday night.
Watch the clips above to see how a comedy show is more truthful than a "news" network.
Regardless of whether you think Common was a suitable choice to perform at Michelle Obama's poetry event, you have to admit that Fox News is basically just making stuff up at this point.
They refer to all of these individual verses in Common's poem, but fail to understand (or maybe purposely ignore) the bigger picture of what the poem was trying to say by using the language in question.
We'd like to thank the Daily Show for taking the time to point out with strong, visual, undeniable evidence of Fox News' shameful attempts to discredit the Obama administration any chance they get, as well as talented artists like Common who get caught in the political crossfire.
Sean Hannity is up in arms over Michelle Obama inviting rapper Common to come to the White House for an evening celebrating poetry on Wednesday.
On Tuesday during his show, the Fox News personality criticized the First Lady's decision because he believes that the White House is setting a bad example by allowing a "controversial" rapper to…come inside? Ha!
He's not alone either!
"Oh lovely, White House…"
So WHAT'S the big deal?
Common spit out an anti-Bush verse while performing a poem at a 2007 Def Poetry event.
Oh, the horror! What poet DIDN'T spit out an anti-Bush verse in 2007? LOLz!
We believe it's called, wait, what's that expression? It's on the tip of our tongue. It's so close! It's — oh yeah — FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
If you'd like to see Hannity ATTEMPT to read the poem in question, then proceed to yell over the commentator ATTEMPTING to offer a different point of view (and educated), check out the video above.
Are U upset that Common is appearing at the White House poetry event or is Fox News and their conservative cohorts blowing this WAY out of proportion?

What have you got there, Kate? Could that be part of your wedding vows???
Check out the photo (above) of a piece of paper from the back of Kate Middleton's car, which has got some poetic writing on it.
While it's not 100% clear, one of the lines on the piece of paper seems to read as follows:
"With so much love within our hearts."
Def sounds to us like this could be an indicator that William and Kate wrote their vows themselves.
Guess we'll find out soon!
Do U think we're getting a glimpse at marriage vows? Or is it something else?
P.S. Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts with Nene Leakes "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

How romantic! Not that we expected him to say anything negative!
When speaking about her lips, he reveals:
"They are a conduit to paradise, a tunnel to another world. They are redemption, salvation, glory, poetry!"
Ha! Well, shiz!
Isn't that so sweet that you just want to gag?! And then give her lips a test run yourself to confirm that his description is on par?!
You guys keep on enjoying that tunnel!

Oh, if we'd only known back then, we would have bought a copy for each and every one of you.
Did you know that besides being an actor/warlock, Charlie Sheen is also a poet? Course you did! This is the man that inspired us with the phrase, "Can't is the cancer of happen," not too long ago.
But did you know that in 1990, he self-published his own book of poetry??? Oh yes, it happened!
Now, unfortunately, the book, called A Peace of My Mind, (Clever!) has since gone out-of-print, so Amazon won't be able to help you. However, we've got a little taste of Charlie's moving words for you here.
As it turns out, Charlie's book was illustrated by director Adam Rifkin. The pair ended up collaborating with Charlie's poetry again, when Adam used Charlie's sweet words for the trailer of his terrifying film Tale of Two Sisters. Never heard of it? Then consider yourself warned because this is some dark, creeper-infested John Waters territory you are about to head into.
You can listen to Charlie read his poetry
and subject yourself to night terrors by watching the trailer HERE, but for the rest of you, allow us to share you his words. With his awe-inspiring tiger blood quill pen, Charlie wrote:
Afternoon chaos turned to laughter,
As the lady in grey pierces the surface of the private aquarium,
Peach body held tight by the warmth of day,
Eyes fixed to locate, steady flow consumed,
A charred eruption takes suddenly the safety from her glow.
No place to hide, clear water raging black,
Looking hard for shallow hope, it’s gone, she consumed it.
Mascara bleeding, eyes of fire turned to stone,
Forced smile fading, laughing jackal breaks the leash.
Cue the chills!
P.S. - Does anyone else need anymore evidence that this dude is unstable???
Looks like Leona Lewis' ex Lou Al-Chamaa is not taking their anniversary as a single man very well.
He seems to be in a depressing funk, tweeting some pretty dark and cryptic messages on his Twitter, writing:
Took something perfect & painted it Red..
What we don't understand, we fear & what we fear, we try and destroy…
Writing deep dark disturbing poetry.. Any publishers out there?
Chin up, buddy. Who knows? Maybe you can make big bucks writing poetry for jilted ex-lovers.
