Host says Fox & Friends ‘only option’ for Trump because every other show calls him fat

Published

Brian Kilmeade said President Donald Trump has no other choice but to watch “Fox & Friends” because no other news shows treated him with respect.

The “Fox & Friends” co-host appeared on Wednesday’s “Breitbart News Tonight” to promote his new book and discuss why the president loyally watched and reacted on Twitter to the daily TV program, reported Right Wing Watch.

“If you flip around, you understand why he watches us,” Kilmeade said. “I mean, we’re the only one that gives him a legitimate, fair shot. I mean, we’ll call him out when we think things are out of control, you know if those things that were said behind closed doors I think that’s ridiculous.”

Kilmeade was apparently referring to the president’s “sh*thole” insult against immigrants from African nations, which has been a top story on nearly every media outlet this week but Fox News.

“I’m not going to pretend that’s the No. 1 story in America every day,” Kilmeade said. “You know, we don’t get up every day and wonder if he’s really 239 pounds. We’re not going to spend two blocks talking about, ‘He has to lose 15 pounds,’ and, ‘Is his doctor competent?’ so that makes you the only option for him.”

Based on his Twitter reactions, Trump sometimes seemed to learn more from “Fox & Friends” than his presidential daily briefings — and Kilmeade said he and his co-hosts understood their influence with the nation’s chief executive.

“Absolutely, we take it seriously, but it’s kind of odd because we were the ones that had him on for eight years prior,” Kilmeade said. “He would call into our show every Monday or Tuesday.”

That led to a personal relationship with the show’s team, who “started taking him out, thanking him for his contribution on Christmas, and next thing you know he’s president of the United States.”

‘Smart rats jump a sinking orange ship’: Columnist predicts more Republicans will flee Trump

Published

New York Times contributing columnist Wajahat Ali predicted that more Republicans would likely flee President Donald Trump in the coming weeks.

Already, Trump's own officials, appointees, and staff are lining up to testify to the House committees, despite Trump saying they will not cooperate with any investigations.

"I believe smart rats jump a sinking orange ship, and if you don't believe me, you haven't paid attention to the last week," Ali told CNN's Don Lemon. In the past week, several of Trump's appointees have lined up to give a deposition or testify. Even outgoing Energy Secretary Rick Perry revealed in a Wall Street Journal interview, that Rudy Giuliani was to be the point person on all things related to Ukraine.

CNN panel mocks the White House for promoting a photo of Trump looking ‘subservient’ to Pelosi

Published

on

The White House posted a series of photos of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) Wednesday after their meeting, showing Pelosi being the only person in the room literally standing up to President Donald Trump. It was an image that baffled the mind of at least one CNN panelist as to why the Trump people would be promoting Pelosi.

According to reports from those who were in the room, the president flew off the handle after Pelosi quipped that it seems all roads lead back to Russia for this president. It was at that point that Trump called Pelosi a "third-grade politician," though presumably, he meant "third-rate," and the meeting broke apart.

Max Boot calls BS on Republicans for trying to claim Syria is Nancy Pelosi’s fault because of impeachment

Published

President Donald Trump is conducting foreign policy like a 1980s television character, according to conservative Washington Post columnist Max Boot.

In a panel discussion about the letter Trump sent to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, Boot mocked Republicans for suddenly trying to claim that Trump's withdrawal from Syria was Speaker Nancy Pelosi's fault because of impeachment. It is unclear if Republicans are confessing the president is too distracted by impeachment to be making foreign policy decisions or if they are blaming Pelosi for military decisions.

"I mean there's a lot of really lame Republican talking points out there, Don," Boot said to CNN host Don Lemon. "But to suggest, as Rep. Liz Cheney and others have done that somehow Trump's inexplicable decision to give the Turks the green light to invade Syria — that was somehow the fault of Nancy Pelosi because of the impeachment process? What?"
