Undercover videographer James O’Keefe’s hidden camera “interview” with San Bernardino ACORN organizer Tresa Kaelke – airing on the Fox News Channel, including the Glenn Beck show, and on BigGovernment.com – has been caught in an obvious set of lies and manipulations.
Kaelke, who was approached by O’Keefe, posing as a law student with a prostitute girlfriend, at the entrance to the small, one-person ACORN says she immediately felt uneasy and at a loss.
With their provocative costuming and outlandish scenario, she could not take them seriously. So she met their outrageousness with her own personal style of outrageousness. She matched their false scenario with her own false scenarios.
“They were not believable,” said Kaelke of the two actors. “Somewhat entertaining, but they weren’t even good actors. I didn’t know what to make of them. They were clearly playing with me. I decided to shock them as much as they were shocking me. Like Stephen Colbert does – saying the most outrageous things with a straight face.”
While her sense of humor might not be funny to many people, the fact is that she spun false scenario after false scenario – and the videographer ate them up.
For example, in response to the set-up by the filmmakers in which they say they are trying get the young woman away from her abusive pimp, she responds that she was abused by her former husband as well (true) and that she shot and killed him (false). He is very much alive and living near Barstow, California.
