Fox Business host Melissa Francis predicted this week that Wall Street would devote their resources to defeating Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) if she decided to run for president because bankers and traders believed that she was “actually the devil.”
On Tuesday’s edition of Out Numbered, host Andrea Tantaros noted that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s delay in announcing her candidacy for the presidency was bolstering Warren’s supporters.
Co-host Harris Faulkner argued that both Clinton and Warren needed to accelerate their decisions because former Republican Florida Gov. Jeb Bush had declared his intentions to begin exploring a presidential campaign earlier in the day.
“I think Elizabeth Warren is going to capitalize on not only her economic populism, but also the social justice aspect,” co-host Kennedy Montgomery anticipated, pointing out that all of the senators who were potential presidential candidates had voted against a recent budget bill that weakened consumer financial protections.
“And she really came out smelling like a rose,” Francis said. “I mean, she said this is a big gift to Wall Street.”
“And I can tell you from talking to people in the financial industry, in banking, on Wall Street, they think she is actually the devil,” the Fox Business host continued. “I mean, without question, Elizabeth Warren is the devil. So, they’re going to put any money they have behind Hillary Clinton, which should be a help.”
Andrea Tantaros argued that Warren’s populist message was a “political winner.”
“We all hate the banks because of what they did a few years ago,” guest host Bernard McGuirk remarked.
“No, we don’t!” Francis shot back. “Speak for yourself!”
But in the end, McGuirk opined that Warren was a “radical leftist” who couldn’t win.
“So was President Obama,” Tantaros sighed. “They drudged up all that info, but the media hid it.”
“Does the president have enough juice to put behind somebody the way that he couldn’t do in the midterms?” Faulkner wondered.
“I don’t know if anyone really wants his juice near their campaign,” Tantaros quipped. “Squeeze your juice somewhere else, President Obama.”

Giggling Fox & Friends hosts gloat over Lewandowski hearing: ‘He gave as good as he got!’
The hosts of "Fox & Friends" giggled and gloated over Corey Lewandowski's contentious appearance before the House Judiciary Committee.
President Donald Trump's former campaign manager claimed executive privilege over testimony he gave before special counsel Robert Mueller, admitted he had lied in TV appearances and cracked jokes during five hours of testimony -- and the Fox News hosts were delighted.
"He gave as good as he got," said co-host Steve Doocy.
Co-host Ainsley Earhardt was laughing so hard she could barely speak.
"She said the truth shall set you free," Earhardt said, quoting Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX) through guffaws. "'Answer the question,' there was no question."
‘Trump people lie — we know that’: Ex-House GOP staffer shreds Democrats for letting Lewandowski off the hook
MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski denounced President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as "rude" and "insolent" -- but her fellow "Morning Joe" panelists ripped House Democrats for letting him off the hook with obstructing their investigation.
Lewandowski turned the House Judiciary Committee hearing into a "circus," Brzezinski said, and panelists agreed he unlawfully claimed executive privilege, and a former Republican House staffer said he should have been charged with contempt of Congress.
"He was a mini Trump," Brzezinski said. "You can speak to Corey Lewandowski in real life, and often you can see someone who doesn't seem like Trump. In front of the cameras, he was playing for an audience of one. He was rude, he was insolent, he was stonewalling and, ultimately, being revealed to be a liar after being shown that he went on a national TV show, Ari Melber, it's not like a camera was shoved in his face, and he chose to lie to the American people."
Brian Williams compares Corey Lewandowski’s opening statement to the North Korean news lady
MSNBC host Brian Williams on Tuesday noted the similarities between former Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and North Korean news anchor Ri Chun Hee.
"Corey Lewandowski, the former Trump campaign manager who is now considering a Senate run in New Hampshire, testified before the House Judiciary Committee today," Williams reported. "It is likely his North Korean anchorwoman-quality opening remarks were meant were one viewer (Donald Trump)."
Ri, who has earned the nickname "Pink Lady," is known for her enthusiastic reading of government-approved news.
