WATCH: Fox News host accuses Trump of ‘subservience’ to Russia by delaying attack on Syria

Published

on

President Donald Trump appears “subservient” to Russia, Fox News anchor Leland Vittert concluded during a Saturday interview of Milwaukee talk radio host Dan O’Donnell.

The scrutiny came after O’Donnell said America’s top priority in Syria was to not anger Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“We have to walk the line, we don’t want to provoke World War III with Russia and its allies and destroying a lot of Russian defense personnel or anything like that,” O’Donnell argued. “The last thing that we want is to get a system of entangling alliance like in World War I.”

“Whoa, but hold on,” Vittert interrupted.

“Is the last thing we want, to send a strong message and actually poke the bear or is the last thing we want to be seen as being subservient to whatever Russia tells us we can and can’t do?” he asked. “Which one is worse?”

“I don’t think this is seen as subservient to Russia, remember we killed how many hundred Russian forces a couple of weeks ago,” O’Donnell answered.

“Hold on, hold on, a Russian general basically said, if you endanger any Russian troops or Russian assets, then we’ll retaliate, otherwise we won’t,” he noted. “So you can read that, essentially, as go ahead and hit anything you want as long as it’s not Russian.”

“That sounds pretty subservient,” Vittert concluded. “That kind of sounds like tip-toeing around the Russians.”

Published

on

George Conway, the prominent Republican attorney married to White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, blasted his wife's boss in a new Washington Post op-ed published online on Friday evening.

"Until three brief months ago, President Trump never faced a serious crisis, at least one not of his own making. But now he has faced two, and is failing two, in short order: the covid-19 pandemic, with its concomitant economic devastation; and now social unrest, and rioting, stemming from the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody," Conway wrote. "Lacking in humanity, Trump has had no idea how to handle either one."
