Wait, is Trump losing Fox News?

Fox News host Sean Hannity

Fox News remains President Trump's favorite news channel, and Sean Hannity his single greatest champion. But mounting criticism from the latter's Fox co-anchors this week suggests the network's support for the president may be eroding.

"Just today John Roberts, Fox News correspondent of the White House walked out of a White House press briefing," explained "Young Turks" host Cenk Uygur. "Sarah Huckabee Sanders… said 'I guess he has somewhere better to go,' and he said 'yeah, we're not on camera. You are not doing this on TV, so I have to do a live show.'"

Roberts isn't the only Fox News correspondent who appears fed up. Nightly panelist Charles Krauthammer torched Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Kremlin-connected attorney on “The Story” with Martha MacCallum, three days after the New York Times bombshell report. Krauthammer continued his attack on Thursday's “Special Report With Bret Baier." 

"I'm willing to concede it is not a criminal act, but it is certainly an unethical act," he said of the meeting with Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya last June at Trump Tower. 

"Damn," exlaimed Uygur. "Fox News calling the Trump administration unethical and saying they were deceiving you all along."

Even Judge Andrew Napolitano had some choice words to describe the Trump Tower summit. According to Napolitano, Don. Jr. was lucky not to receive any information about Hillary Clinton from Veselnitskaya.

"That would have been a felony," he concluded. "That would have been the completion of a crime."

"This is a guy Trump liked so much that he thought about putting him on the Supreme Court," Uygur reminded viewers. "[And] even Napolitano is saying this looks really bad." 

Earlier in the week, a furious Sheppard Smith told viewers, "There are still people out there who believe we're making it up, and one day they are going to realize we are not."

"This is a weird topsy-turvy world where I am agreeing with Fox hosts," Uygur noted. That makes two of us.

2020 Election

Trump has made it disturbingly clear: He thinks he can steal this election and get away with it

Published

on

I'm as big a political junkie as they come. I love reading polls, monitoring their day-to-day fluctuations, like a fantasy sports bettor studying blocks of player stats. I not only watch politicians give speeches, I engage in blow-by-blow commentary by my fellow junkies on Twitter. I got caught up in this election's "veepstakes" and debating the various women under consideration by former Vice President Joe Biden as his future vice president, and it was satisfying to share my thoughts on the final choice, Sen. Kamala Harris of California. I've faithfully watched every episode of Crooked Media's YouTube series analyzing various campaign ads.

Trump is sabotaging more than just the US Postal Service as he bumbles towards catastrophe

Published

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is the word “sabotage” is being used more often and with more feeling by leading Democrats and liberals than I have witnessed since the president took office. This is an important development. Too few Americans appreciate the depth of Donald Trump’s malice. If there’s a way to betray the republic, he will find it. The more people understand this, the more prepared they will be when this chapter in our history comes to an end—if it comes to an end.

Brace yourself for one of the most tumultuous and stressful transitions in America history if Biden defeats Trump

Published

on

Three months from now America will once again experience the tumult and stress of presidential transitions, if one believes the polls that show former Vice President Joe Biden thwarting President Trump’s attempt to win a second term in the White House.  Trump has already made clear his intention to fight tooth and nail, no holds barred, to win a second term, including legal maneuvers with no limits, plus threats simply not to concede.  This could create a constitutional crisis that would surpass any previous presidential transition.  America has certainly had a lot of experience in difficulties in the change of governments in the last two centuries.  An examination of such tumult and stress is instructional.
