Fox & Friends host drops hint to Trump that bombing Syria would be ‘a bigger story than Comey’s book’

Published

While all of the cable news show hosts were obsessed on Friday morning with reading excerpts from fired FBI Director James Comey’s book, one of the co-hosts of President Donald Trump’s favorite Fox News morning show made a not-too-subtle suggestion to the president on how to make talk of Comey’s revelations go away.

Speaking with Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera, Fox and Friends’ host Ainsley Earhardt proposed a military intervention in Syria could become the talk of the day should the president choose to act immediately.

Sitting between co-hosts Steve Doocy and Brian Kilmeade, Earhardt made her suggestion.

“If the president, and France, and the UK decide to strike Syria, don’t you think that story would be a bigger story than Comey’s book that’s going to be released on Tuesday?” Earhardt asked.

Speaking remotely, Rivera, paused due to transmission problem before taking the bait.

“I think that the United States, the United Kingdom, and France certainly have the military wherewithal,” Rivera replied. “Indeed, the United States could do it on its own, strike Syria, strike [President Bashar] Assad’s resources, military assets, in retaliation for the gas attack, the horrifying gas attack that the president was so righteously revolted by. I mean, we all were.”

His findings were incredibly damning for the president and his allies, finding evidence that the campaign eagerly accepted Russian help, if not a full-blown conspiracy, and outlining ten potential episodes where Trump obstructed justice. But Mueller's conclusions are by no means the end-all of everything that happened. Mueller himself acknowledged in his report that Trump's lack of cooperation probably prevented him from finding a lot of information.

The Palestinian leadership should sign on to the US economic development plan and worry about their political status later, Hebrew University of Jerusalem Historian Gaudi Taub told FRANCE 24.

Palestinians are wrong to reject the $50 million US blueprint to rebuild the Palestinian economy, which US Presidential advisor and son-in-law Jared Kushner said is a precondition to peace in the region, Taub said.

Published

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) was called out for "working the referees" by attempting to "terrify" technology company executives into not enforcing their own rules against political extremism.

The Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet on Tuesday held a hearing titled, “Optimizing for Engagement: Understanding the Use of Persuasive Technology on Internet Platforms.”

"I think these questions raise very serious -- these documents raise very serious questions about political bias at the company," Cruz said, referring to Google.

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) responded.

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
