Fox News Senior Political Analyst Brit Hume predicted over the weekend that Americans would reject former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a presidential candidate because of her “weird marriage.”
“She has huge advantages,” Hume told Fox News host Chris Wallace just hours before Clinton was expected to officially announce her candidacy for the Democratic nomination. “She is better known that any Democrat in America, certainly any Democrat that has any idea of running during this election year.”
“She has a tremendous body of support and supporters that dates back years, she has a huge fundraising apparatus, she has professional people around her, she has long experience, she knows the issues,” the Fox News analyst continued.
But for Hume, all of Clinton’s strengths were outweighed by her relationship with her husband.
“She has tremendous baggage,” he pointed out. “I mean, do the American people really want another four or eight years of the Clintons and their weird marriage? Do they want more of the kind of behavior — the deceptive behavior we saw with the emails and all the rest of it, which is so redolent of Clinton administrations and Clinton experiences past.”
“And then there’s the fact that the public is hungry for someone new, she’s not somebody new. She’s old, she’s not the news.”

Whistleblower forced to come forward because intel officials consider Trump a ‘security risk’: CNN’s Avlon
Addressing a bombshell report from the Washington Post that President Donald Trump made a "promise" to an unidentified world leader that "prompted an official in the U.S. intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower complaint with the inspector general for the intelligence community," CNN's John Avlon said it was a sign intel officials regard the president as a "security risk."
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, Avlon noted that the whistleblower is a Trump appointee which makes formal complaint all that much more alarming.
"A Trump appointee thinks this is of such concern that Congress needs to know," Berman began. "The question is: what was the promise, to whom, and what does it say about the president's notion of intelligence?"
‘Where’s Graham?’ MSNBC’s Morning Joe challenges ‘Moscow Mitch’ to confront whistleblower complaint against Trump
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough challenged Senate Republicans to get to the bottom of a highly unusual whistleblower complaint against President Donald Trump now that new details have emerged.
Former U.S. officials told the Washington Post that the whistleblower filed a report with the intelligence community's inspector general over a "promise" Trump made in a July 31 phone call to a foreign leader, and "Morning Joe" panelists grappled with the handling of the complaint by acting director of national intelligence Joseph Maguire.
"It looks to me as if the Trump administration is deliberately seeking to undo the rules that have bounded U.S. intelligence activities, basically since the Watergate and the intelligence scandals in the '70s," said Post columnist David Ignatius. "It's a big deal."
