What type of fallacies do you detect?
In this picture there are many fallacies I detected, some more apparent than others. The first being the “Red Herring” witch states the claim provides unrelated and misleading support for said claim.

It makes no since and, it ridiculous. As we went over in class one of the major components in claims are
